Cheese and Apricot Muffins

When I was a kid, I loved to eat fresh bread with apricot jam and a thick slice of cheddar cheese. I still do this occasionally and my kids have inherited my love for this comfort food.

With this in mind, I’ve created a muffin that brings those wonderful flavours together in a quick and easy muffin.  These take 20 minutes to whip up and are best served warm with butter and a cup of coffee.

Prep these on Saturday evening, pop the batter in the fridge overnight and they are ready to be baked fresh on Sunday morning. You’ll be well on your way to that “Mother of the Year “award. Behind me, of course *tongue in cheek*

 

1 egg

200ml milk

250ml flour

10ml baking powder

3ml dry mustard powder

2ml salt

375ml grated cheddar cheese

100g chopped dried apricots (the turkish variety of really chewy)

 

Preheat the oven to 200ºC

Grease a 12 hole muffin tin well.
