Feta, Cheddar and Spinach Muffins


  • 300g of plain flour
  • 2 and half teaspoons of baking powder
  • 100g cheddar cheese
  • 150g of chopped feta
  • 130g of baby leaf spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 220ml skimmed milk (the recipe suggests whole but I never have whole milk)
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 30g of butter melted
  • half a red onion, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 170 C or gas mark 3 
  2. Melt the butter in a pan, added chopped onion and cook 
  3. Add the dry ingredients into a large bowl 
  4. In a separate bowl add the egg and milk and whisk 
  5. Add the egg mixture into the dry ingredients
  6. Chop the spinach finely
  7. Add the onion and spinach into the muffin mixture by hand using a wooden spoon
  8. Scoop into muffin cases using an ice cream scoop (this gives them a nice rounded shape)
  9. Cook for 30-35 minutes



  1. What is feta and cayenne pepper

  2. I like eggs as a leavening agent, instead of baking powder. I also like paprika better than cayenne. Other than that, I would call these heavenly! I'm a super taster, so strong spices like cayenne, even onions and garlic overwhelm me. And forget chili or curry!)
