This is a copy-cat recipe I got online.
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 3⁄4 cup milk (2% works best)
- 1 egg, beaten well
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix all ingredients together. Pour into greased muffin pan and bake at 400 for 15 - 20 minutes.
- This recipe make about 12 muffins.
These are almost exactly like Jim N Nicks...the second time i made them, i cut the sugar to a little more than 1/2 cup, but less than 3/4 and I added a tad more cheese. The other thing i did different was I used buttermilk instead of regular milk cause our waiter told us that that's what the recipe called for....they sell the mix in the restaurant.
These are very very sweet with 1 c sugar...sweet overpowered the other flavors. Will try it again with lots less sugar.
I used melted butter, mixing the dry and wet ingredients separately and adding them together until just mixed then folding in the cheese. I made 32 hefty mini-muffins like they do at Jim N Nicks, filling the pans more than 3/4s full and baking about 9 minutes. The pans need to be greased very well. Warm, they tasted just like Jim N Nicks. They weren't nearly as good the next day. I'll be making these without cheese as well- will decrease the sugar to 3/4 cup when there isn't the salty cheese to counteract the sugar. PS: The server told us they have changed the recipe so it is less sweet and said the best substitute was plain old Jiffy mix with cheese added. I think these were way better than Jiffy mix!!
