Lisa's Savoury Muffins

These came about after my neighbour kindly bought me one of hers. I have been messing with the ingredients ever since hoping to make some that are nice also and came up with these. They are nice with a hot cup of tea in the afternoon maybe with some butter spread in them.


  • 2 cups self raising flour

  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • .25 tsp salt

  • .5 tsp pepper

  • 2 tsp ground cumin

  • .5 tsp ground chilli

  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes

  • 1 clove of garlic, freshly crushed

  • 2 sprigs spring onion, finely chopped

  • .75 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 eggs lightly beaten

  • 1 small carrot, grated

  • .75 cup parmesan cheese, grated


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 190C and line a 12 hole muffine pan with liners.

  • 2.

    Sift flour, baking powder, salt, pepper together then gently mix in the rest of spices.

  • 3.

    In a seperate bowl lightly beat the eggs, add to this the milk, oil, cheese and garlic.

  • 4.

    Combine the wet to the dry and add remaining ingredients until is a nice consistency.

  • 5.

    If too thick add some small amount of milk.

  • 6.

    Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a skewer inserted into the biggest one comes out clean.

  • 7.

    Store in an airtight container.


These freeze well if you want to make a double batch so you always have something fast on hand.
