  • 2 eggs
  • 175 ml (½ cup) milk
  • 75 g (½ cup) butter melted
  • 150 g (2 cups) grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 to matoes
  • 75 g fresh baby spinach chopped
  • 250 g (2 cups) self raising flour


Preheat the oven to 180C / 170C Fan /350F and line a muffin tin with cases.

    Mix the wet ingredients

    • Break the eggs into a small bowl, and then add to a large mixing bowl. Give them a whisk.
    • Measure the milk – we normally do this using the ml setting on our digital scales to be more accurate. Add it to the eggs.
    • Weigh the butter into a small bowl and then melt it in the microwave or a small pan. Add to the egg/milk mixture and give everything a good mix.

    Add the filling

    • Grate the cheese, and chop the vegetables then add them to your mixing bowl.

    Add the flour

    • Finally, weigh the flour out into a small bowl and add to the large mixing bowl.
    • Give everything one final stir until all the ingredients are well combined.

    Make the muffins

    • Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases.
    • Bake the muffins in the oven for 20-25 minutes. They’re ready when they are nice and golden in colour and a metal skewer inserted in to the middle comes out clean.
    • Serve warm or chilled in the lunchbox or picnic.
