Easy Cheese Muffins for Baby

Posted on Aug 30 2010 - 11:19am by Christine

Last week we gave you a recipe for sweet muffins – so we thought today it would be nice to share a recipe for some savoury ones!

Cheese Muffins

We like this recipe because it’s easy to make and produces a tasty muffin that you can serve as a finger food by itself, as an accompaniment for soup or even with a spread.  Ideal for babies already enjoying whole eggs, these muffins can be frozen if necessary so you’ll always have a supply on hand.

To Make Easy Cheese Muffins For Baby You Will Need…

8 oz (2 cups) self rising flour
6 oz (1 1/2 cups) whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
7 oz (1 and 3/4 cup) grated Cheddar cheese
4 oz (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
1 small bunch of chives, snipped
5 fl oz (2/3 cup) whole milk
1 tsp prepared mustard (this will not make the muffins ‘hot’, but gives them a richer flavour)
4 fl oz (1/2 cup) natural yogurt
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 390 deg F (200 deg C).
Thoroughly grease a 12 hole muffin tin.
In one bowl, mix together the flour, cheese and chives.
In a second bowl, mix together the butter, milk, mustard, yogurt and eggs.
Carefully fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for around 20 to 30 mins until golden.
Cool and serve warm (and do try to resist eating them all yourself!).

We love…

…these Reusable Silicone Baking Cups for making our muffins. We’ve NEVER had them stick – they pop right out and the cups take two seconds to clean… better than scrubbing a muffin tin!

    I’m sorry if this question is stupid but i didn’t quite understand when you said “fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients”. Do I mix them together? Sorry again and thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    Not a stupid question at all Andrea 🙂 – yes, just carefully mix them together until thoroughly combined. Hope your little one enjoys them!
