Makes 12 small or 8 large muffins


50ml sunflower oil

2 eggs

100ml milk

200g self-raising flour or 50/50 white and wholemeal

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp each of salt and ground pepper

5 spring onions finely sliced

200g frozen corn blanched in boiling water for a moment then drained

1 red pepper deseeded and cut into small cubes

100g feta cheese cubed

1 tsp dried oregano

1tbsp sesame seeds (optional)


- Preheat the oven to 175 degree c

- Line your muffin tins with paper cases or grease well with butter

- Beat the eggs, oil and milk until frothy then add the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper and mix well to form a batter.

- Fold in the oregano, cheese, onions, pepper and sweetcorn and mix.

- Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases 2/3rd full and sprinkle with sesame seeds if using.

- Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and golden. Check they are done by inserting a skewer. If it comes out still gummy, bake for a further five minutes.

- Cool completely before eating.


For gluten free muffins use 125g of Dove farm self raising flour and 75g of fine polenta and cornmeal.

Other vegetables or cheese can be used, but juicy ingredients such as fresh tomatoes will alter the consistency of the mixture

The feta cheese can be replaced with hard cheeses like cheddar. Try adding flavour bombs like fresh or dried chilli, sliced olives or sundried tomatoes.
