"Because of the low fat content in these, you must USE ONLY CAKE FLOUR or these will be tough! Adapted from a Beatrice Ojajangas recipe."

    Yum, what a delightful savoury muffin! It has a great taste with the rosemary and cheese going great together and the texture is also quite nice for a low-fat muffin. Who would have thought that healthy could be this yummy? ;)<br/>I used this recipe to make cake flour and it worked out nicely: Recipe #424532.<br/>I used paper cups and the muffins stuck badly to those, which was my only problem with your recipe, so next time Im just going to grease my tins (I dont have access to cooking spray here).<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Mikekey! <br/>Made and reviewed for I Recommend Tag and the June is baked goods month event in the photo forum June 2011.

    Wonderfully savory muffins! Reminds me of the kind of muffin you%u2019d get at a high end restaurant to round out an exquisite meal filled with delightful culinary surprises! Thanks, Mikekey. Made for Zaar Stars tag game.

    Loved these muffins! I didnt have fresh rosemary so I chopped up some dried and used an Italian Blend shredded cheese that had asiago in it. The warm muffin with melted cheese and a pat of butter was fantastic! I will make these again and make sure I have the fresh rosemary and asiago cheese. Thank you for sharing Mike! Made and reviewed for KK's Recipe Tag Game.

    Full savory flavor -- the asiago cheese really stood out -- but I can work 153 calories into my diet on occasion. Fresh rosemary was unavailable so I substituted 2/3 tsp. dried rosemary; I will be happy to remake these on another date with fresh. I will try these with 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder in addition. Thanks for posting this recipe, mikekey! Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, based on the recommendation of Starrynews.

    Fabulous!!! I was fortunate enough to inherit really large quantities of fresh rosemary and asiago cheese, so clearly I had to try these. I can't think of enough adjectives to describe just how delicious these savoury little muffins are! I ate one hot out of the oven, one when they cooled down a bit, tried one cold of the fridge the next day and every single way, they were so divine! Thank you SO MUCH for posting this!!
