A good basic cheese muffin recipe which can be upgraded with the addition of ingredients like chopped spring onion, red or green pepper, ham or cooked bacon.

Top Review by Lalaloula

These muffins are very moist and soft on the inside with a crunchy crust. They have a great cheese flavour, but I would have liked a bit more taste, as they were a little plain. Maybe some more cayenne or a little bit more salt or some pepper could have helped that. I will definitely use this recipe again making some slight changes and trying some of those variations you mentioned in your intro. It is a great basic recipe and comes together quickly and easily. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing it wiht us!
