What You'll Need

  • 30g butter
  • 1 small pickling onion, or 1/2 red onion
  • 360g plain flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 250g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 220ml milk, plus 80ml if the mixture is too dry
  • 1 egg
  • 130g baby spinach, chopped finely (by hand or with food processor)

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 170 degress Celcius 

Step 2

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then fry the onion until cooked. Set aside. 

Step 3

Put the flour, baking powder, paprika and cheese in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the milk and egg together, then slowly pour into the flour mixture and beat with a handheld electric whisk until all the ingredients are well mixed. 

Step 4

Stir in the onion and spinach with a wooden spoon until evenly dispersed. 

Step 5

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35minutes, or until deep golden and the sponge bounces back when touched. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean. Leave the muffins to cool slightly in the tray before turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cook completely. 

Step 6

Additional tips: Once cooked, the muffins then to stick to the paper cases & very difficult to peel. Better to bake the muffin without paper cases, and grease the muffin pans with olive oil or butter beforehand.
