I made these to go with a baked chicken and they were wonderful. We ate them just as well left over as we did when they were fresh out of the oven. The only thing I will do different next time is add a little more cheese, or maybe do a cheese blend.

I love this recipe. I accidentally omitted the sugar and added an extra pinch or two of salt, and they tasted savory and delicious. Thanks for this simple crowd pleaser!:)

I have made these a couple of times now and find them really versatile. One time I added a couple of dessert spoons of corn relish and a little chopped ham. The next time I made them, I used the relish again, but also pushed a small teaspoon of cream cheese into the centre of each muffin before cooking. Yum!

I had high hopes for these given the reviews...but they seemed to fall a bit short of my expectations. To be fair, I used mild shredded cheddar and think they may have benefitted from a coarser shredded sharp cheddar. I baked for 20 minutes at 350 and they came out golden and springy- texture was fantastic and taste was good, just couldn't really taste the cheese, which is what I was looking for in a "cheddar cheese muffin". I will try again with sharp cheddar cheese.

Delicious! Such an easy recipe - they went together and baked up in no time. 22 min was perfect for my oven. I used extra-old white cheddar cheese and was very happy with the flavour. We dunked ours in chili. Thank you, CL, for sharing!

These are very nice! resembles more of a tea biscuit than a muffin but i figured that anyway! added some chili powder and a bit more cayenne per other people's comments. I had one right out of the oven (i can never resist) but have to say that they are best when they have completely cooled down and have "rested". Thanks for the recipe :)

These were really good. I used 1 cup of sharp cheese and about a 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. I served them with chili and they were perfect. Very quick and easy to make.

I baked these muffins with 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/2cup + 1 tbs whole wheat flour. They just tasted great! This is my favorite cheddar cheese recipe.

Yummy! I used 5 year old white cheddar and added fresh chives. Next time I will try adding some cooked ham! I think I will try more cayenne as well. Thank you for posting! I will make these again and again :)
