About this recipe: I developed this savoury muffin recipe when I had an abundance of courgettes! They're a hit even with those who think they don't like courgette!


Makes: 12 muffins

  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a 12 muffin cup tin (or spray with cooking spray).
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the butter, egg, milk, grated courgette and garlic until well blended.

I added some spinach to mine, just to boost up the veggie count and ensure that the recipe wasn't too dry. Very tasty muffins, but would recommend turning the oven down by 20 degrees, and cooking for slightly longer to allow for a more even bake. Also added some black pepper just for some seasoning, as well as a small amount of mustard. - 03 Oct 2015
