Cheddar, Ale and Chive Muffins

I’m a huge fan of baked goods for breakfast. But since I´m not a morning person (especially on the weekends), the only way of having oven-hot stuff with the coffee is to get my hands dirty. Wakey-wakey!

Cheddar, ale and chive muffins.

Cheddar Ale and Chive Muffins

Enough for 6 muffins, recipe from a fellow chemist!

  • 190 g self-raising flour
  • 60 g grated cheddar
  • A small bunch of chopped chives
  • 65 ml milk
  • 65 ml ale 
  • 1 egg
  • 60 ml sunflower oil
  • Whole pecan nuts to decorate
Preheat the oven to 200 °C fan and place 6 muffin cases in a muffin tray.  Stir the cheese and chives into the sifted flour. Mix together the milk, ale, egg and oil, a fork will do. Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide among the cases, and place one pecan nut on top of each.
Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes before turning the oven down to 160 °C fan for further 13 to 15 mins. The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
