Bookshop Cafe Savoury Muffins

I have had this recipe floating around for months & months & finally got around to making these muffins last weekend. They were so delicious they just had to be posted here so that when I lose the squitty bit of newspaper I won't lose the recipe.
The recipe is obviously designed with cafe proportions in mind!
 Here it is as I found it, halve it or do whatever you like with it from there:

6 cups flour,
9 tsps of baking powder,
1 tsp curry powder, 
 lots of freshly ground black pepper,
1/2 tsps of good salt
6 cups grated cheese,
4 eggs,
3 cups of milk,
2 cups feta cheese,
2 onions finely chopped (personally I would saute the onion before adding or use spring onions)
3 cups of the any of the following: leftover roast veges, sundried tomatoes, red capsicum, parsley, pesto, grated courgette etc..roast pumpkin would be brilliant.
Sift the flour, baking powder, curry powder & black pepper into a large bowl,
toss through the feta, grated cheese, salt & various herbs & veges,
lightly beat the eggs & milk together then fold into the big bowl.

Divide out into greased muffin tins (makes 20-24)
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, or top with tomato slices, relish & sesame seeds.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 mins at 200degrees C
These are fantastic for picnics, traveling, work, school lunches.
I added lots of roasted peppers & 2 grated courgettes to this batch & I made them really large!
I also used 2 finely sliced spring onions from my garden rather than onion & used about half the amount of feta.
Lots of room for improvisation!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It's the first time I've made savoury muffins that turned out moist and not dry. Great flavours and looked cafe-like! We have visited that cafe too and have great memories of their custard squares!

  2. I made these today and they were fantastic, I am really pleased with how they came out, I did fill my large x 6 muffin tin to the top and only needed to cook for 15 minuets in an fan oven. Thanks again and was wondering if you have a scone recipe?

  3. Hello Tresna. Your comment is a "no reply" so I will just have to leave a message here for you. Good to know how the recipe went for you. Aren't they great. No terrific scone recipe just at the moment...but you just never know when a good one might turn up here. Cheers Catherine
