Hi readers, sorry for the absence of a post last week – I did bake a Birthday cake for my niece (but a tried and tested recipe so it didn’t count for this blog) and I also went to Disneyland and started a new job so I didn’t have time – it’s all happening!
This week I opted for a savoury recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery (http://hummingbirdbakery.com/) – ham and mushroom muffins.
I started by cooking some chopped button mushrooms in butter.
In a separate bowl I added flour, baking powder and cheese and gradually mixed in a combination of whole milk and eggs. The recipe said to use an electric whisk but the mixture was far too think, I thought the whisk was going to short circuit so I put a bit of old fashioned elbow grease in instead!
I then added in chopped ham, chopped onions and the mushrooms.
After giving it a good mix it still seemed really stiff to me so I added a bit more milk to loosen it up a bit. I then put it into cases ready to be baked (the recipe said 12 but I made 16 – winner!).
I then baked them for half an hour (smelt amazing in the oven) until they came out like this…
They’re really good, quite cheesy (no complaints from me!) and much lighter and airier than I expected. I had one fresh out the oven and then a cooled one and they were equally as nice each time. Really quick and easy to do – would recommend!
