Instructions
  1. Mix the dry ingredients, this includes the cheese and savoury fillings. Mix carefully to avoid mashing all the ingredients together. You can add a pinch of paprika or black pepper to the mix to taste.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients well.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together. Don't over mix, it should be a stiff mixture.
  4. Spoon into greased muffin tin, garnishing the top. (A slice of tomato and some grated cheese works well, as do pumpkin seeds)
  5. Cook at 190 degrees celcius for 20 minutes or until muffin coloured.
