Yesterday I made some nice cheese muffins. Between Hurricane Irene and everything else, I hadn't had a lot of time to make anything really. I think I would add something herby next time. Or spicy.
I got 14 muffins out of this recipe.
3/4 c self rising flour
1 T baking powder
1 tsp salt
1.5 c cornmeal
1.5 c grated cheddar cheese
4 T butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 garlic clove, minced
1.25 c milk
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a muffin tin or line with paper liners. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl, then stir in cornmeal and 1 cup of the cheese.
Place the melted butter, eggs, garlic, and milk in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix gently until just combined.
Put the batter in the muffin tin. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Place in oven and bake 20-25 minutes or until risen and golden. Serve warm or place on cooling rack and let cool.
