Did you know: The word muffin is thought to come from the Low German muffen, meaning “little cakes”.  Recipes for muffins appear in British cookbooks as early as 1758. – According to Wikipedia

The recipe that I’m sharing here today, came from a lady at a church gathering.  She was so kind as to share her “go-to-recipe” with us anonymously.


  • 250 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 200g Mature cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 160 g Sweetcorn (1 tin)
  • 25 g Chopped chives (optional)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100 ml Sunflower or Canola oil
  • 250 ml Milk

(Optional:  Red onion, cooked bacon, peppers, spring onion)

How to make the muffins:

  • Preheat oven to 200 C
  • Coat inside of muffin tins with oil or Spray and Cook
  • Mix all the ingredients together (Don’t over mix)
  • Scoop into 12 muffin holes and bake for 20 – 25 min until golden brown.

It is that easy!

Serving suggestion:

Serve with grated cheese and/or strawberry jam.

Yes, strawberry jam – strangely enough, this muffin works well with both sweet and savory if you bake the standard recipe as above.  🙂

Cheese and Sweetcorn Muffins – can be Cheese and Bacon Muffins or Onion and Pepper Cheese Muffins.  It all depends on the ingredients that you add.
