More than breakfast, it doubled its duty as a special birthday muffin too, looking cute with a pink candle sticking right in the middle, as we sang my sister a birthda song. She had returned from her wild night of partying with her friends to celebrate her 21st birthday, just in time for the freshly baked muffin. While she had not tried them yet, I think she would enjoy this a great deal.
Ham & Cheese Muffin
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup chopped ham
- 1 generous cup of fresh grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 200C.
In a big mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and sugar. Add in grated cheese and ham and mix well.
In a separate bowl, lightly beat egg together with melted butter. Then, whisk in the milk.
Pour the liquids directly into the flour mixture. Mix quickly. Batter is slightly thick so spoon rather than pour, into 8 or 9 muffin cups, depending on the size.
Bake for 25 minutes until top is golden brown and the aroma from the bacon and cheese is driving you nuts. Remove from oven and cool on rack.
