"This recipe came from a lady who worked in the Bell Canada cafeteria for many years. They were a favourite coffee break snack for most employees."

"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 :)"
"these were good, next time I might add a little more cayenne, I used Tex Mex cheese, nice flavour"
"Great! I made 1/2 via the recipe and added caraway and dried hot pepper flakes to the second half. Next time, I'll add chopped ham, onion, and a dollop of mustard for a great breakfast muffin!"
"I was all out of bread but wanted something to serve with my spaghetti dinner so I whipped some of these up. Very moist and light! I think they could be improved with a little more flavor...maybe some additional cayenne or maybe even some garlic. I only ended up with 10 muffins but that was plenty for us. Thanks for sharing CountryLady!"
"i made these for my kid brothers when they were over for the weekend. 5 stars from them! the only 'difficult' thing was grating the cheese. i didn't have a grater, so i diced them into tiny little cubes. i only have 3/4 cup of milk so i used 1/4 cup of water. results - 6 very tender muffins, 1 small loaf. thanks!"
"I made these yesterday and they really turn out very well. Followed the recipe to a T and it was yummy!! Moist and oh so gorgeous looking too. It was easy and I had no trouble at all.. mind you i'm not a very good cook! Thanks for sharing :D"
"I was looking for a good savory muffin recipe to do some creative playing around with and these were just what I was looking for. Delicious! I appreciate that there was a little sweetness and the texture was beautiful.
I substituted olive oil for the melted butter; then added a few things to give them more depth of flavor: one rounded tablespoon fresh minced chives, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and a dash of paprika. The aroma was lovely and they were greatly enjoyed! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe. Am looking forward to trying them with some dill and different cheeses. :)"
"These were awesome, thanks for sharing."
"These were Fabulous! Easy to prepare and quick to eat. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Very nice muffins. Thanks for posting."
"While I liked these and they are easy to make, I had trouble with them sticking to the muffin paper liners."
