David's feta, cheddar & chive muffins


  • Preheat oven to 190°C fan forced (210°C normal).
  • Sift the flour, bicarb and salt into a large bowl. Add the cheeses, ground pepper and chives. Then gently mix with a wooden spoon and make a well in the centre.
  • Melt the butter and whisk with the buttermilk and eggs in another bowl. Then pour into the well of the flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. (Batter should not be smooth, DON'T OVER MIX.)
  • Lightly oil a 12-hole muffin tin and evenly spoon in the batter. Then sprinkle with a little extra tasty cheese and cook in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden and a skewer comes out clean. Rest for 5 mins before turning out.
  • Serve the muffins warm with unsalted butter on the side.
