I love Cheese and Beer muffins!! Sorry to hijack your thread a little Marmalady, but this recipe with an egg and chutney makes for a very yummy muffin if you want to try something different.
2 Cups S/R Flour
2 Cups Grated Cheese ( of the tasty variety)
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Beer or Lager
2 to 4 Tbsps Favourite Chutney or Relish
Mix the flour and cheese together in large bowl.
Use a fork to beat the egg just enough to well mix the egg yolk and white. Add the beer of lager ( doesnt matter if it is flat) and stir briefly. Pour onto cheese/flour mix.
Fold together until most of the flour is incorporated, do not overmix.
Streak the chutney lightly through the muffin mix, or you can omit it and add chopped spring onions ( scallions?) if you like.
Spoon into 12 hole regular sized muffin pan that has been oil sprayed or buttered.
220 deg for 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes 24 mini muffins if preferred.
