I followed the recipe exactly. The muffins are good, but I felt that they were a little bland. I am going to try adding a scant 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt next time. It's definitely nice to have a savory muffin recipe as well as a way to keep on top of all the garden spinach!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 390°F (200°C) if using fan-forced oven or 420°F(215°C) if not using a fan-forced oven.
  2. Spray a 12 muffin tray with cooking oil or grease with butter (ensure thoroughly coated). Can use paper cases to line instead of spray or butter if you wish.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly with a balloon whisk.
  4. In another mixing bowl or a large jug - whisk the eggs, milk and oil together. Stir through the chopped spinach and the sliced sun-dried tomatoes. Gentley stir in the crumbled fetta and the finely grated asiago (or parmesan) cheeses.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Fold together gently -until just mixed. Do not overbeat or you will end up with 'heavy' muffins.
  6. Spoon into the greased or paper-lined muffin pans.
  7. Bake approx 15 - 25 minutes, until well risen and golden. Allow the muffins to cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Serve warm or reheat later.
