Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix the flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy with a whisk or electric beaters. Add grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper; mix well. Stir in the flour with baking powder, mixing vigorously to prevent lumps. Pour in oil and milk; mix to create a smooth mixture. Spoon the mixture into 9 silicon star-shaped moulds, filling them about 2/3 full. Transfer the moulds to prepared baking tray.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes, without opening the door. Insert a skewer into the centre of a muffin. If it comes out clean, the muffins are cooked. If not, keep baking for 1 or 2 minutes.
Remove from oven; transfer to a wire rack to cool.
