A delicious savoury muffin, simple and oh so tasty! Cheese & Sunflower Seeds makes such a lovely combo
I have so many muffin recipes but not as many savoury versions so I wanted to share a few more combos that I think are lovely!
Muffins are so handy to have on hand, they freeze well, are great to have in lunchboxes and are a lovely snack during the day. With this recipe it is also a great base recipe to add any extras you might like!
I have kept things really simple here and they are lovely as is but feel free to add extra herbs, vegetables or even bacon to this base recipe.
All you will need to make these are:

Self Raising Flour
Grated Cheese, I use tasty
This recipe was originally in a muffin book I have that is called Granny’s Muffins, this is a lovely compilation of old recipes that have stood the test of time.
To make these is so easy, first rub the butter into the self raising flour and salt. Cube the butter before this step to make it much quicker. Then add to this the cheese and sunflower seeds and a little pinch of paprika.
I like to use Tasty Cheese, which is a rich aged cheddar cheese, it gives such a lovely flavour.
Then combine the egg and and milk and whisk it well, before pouring this over the flour mixture. The key to a good muffin is to not overmix at this stage of the recipe. Fold the liquid through until the flour is just incorporated, this will give you light muffins.
Add a small scoop to a well greased muffin tray. I always use cooking spray to do this as it is so easy, but you can use oil or softened butter to spread thoroughly in the holes.
The final step is to sprinkle paprika and sunflower seeds over the muffins before baking. Then bake for around 20 minutes, or until they are golden and spring back to the touch.
I always leave muffins for no longer than 5-10 minutes in the muffin tray before I transfer them to a wire rack, this means that they have cooled enough to be lifted but not getting soggy bottoms!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s super versatile so feel free to add anything you like!
My other favorite savoury muffin is this Deluxe Bacon one – so filled with gorgeous flavours!
