Keeping the kid busy on a holiday - Savoury Cheese Muffins

Unexpected mid week holidays are so welcome..but it also means you got to think of smart things to keep the active toddler in the house busy.My little fella gets bored doing the mundane things so after 2 rounds of snakes & ladders, half an hour of playing with the cars and watching television  and wants to do something new.Today however i thought that why not get him involved in some cooking!I have recently bought this fabulous book by Martha Day which has tons of easy recipes on baking...i flipped through the pages and found this amazingly simple Cheese muffins recipe.The ingredients listed were everyday basics so I decided to give it a shot. The kid got all excited and helped me with mixing and topping the muffins with loads to cheese and look.... this is what the outcome is!!


Plain flour - 200 gms

Butter - 55 gms ( melted)

Baking powder - 2 tsp

Sugar - 2 tbsp

Salt - half tsp

Eggs - 2 nos ( lightly beaten )

Milk - 125 ml

Cheddar cheese - 2 cubes ( cut into small dice)

Paprika - 1 tsp( optional)

Dried Thyme - 1 tsp


Preheat oven to 200 deg C. Grease and prepare a cup cake try.

In a bowl sift and mix all the dry ingredients - flour , baking powder ,sugar,salt and paprika.

In another bowl mix the milk, beaten eggs, melted butter and thyme and whisk them together.

Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.No need to smoothen the mix.

Place  a heaped spoon of the mixture in to the cups, sprinkle some cheese cubes  then drop another spoon of the batter on top.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 mins till it gets golden brown on top.

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy with your little ones!!!
