this is one I've found from Phil vickery.
I've not tried it yet but it looks as easy as it gets:
Cheddar Muffins

175g/6¼oz self-raising flour
2 tbsp chives, chopped
100g/3½oz cheddar cheese, grated
285ml/½ pint milk
pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
2. Mix the flour, chives, cheese, milk and seasoning in a bowl to combine.
3. Divide the mixture and spoon into a greased muffin tin to make approximately 12.
4. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown and spongy. Serve.

here is another one from Lesley Walters if you are interested.

The bbc recipes usually have a few nice ones to try. Looks intersting

It depends on what sort of cook you are, I suppose, I like quick and simple

I make these ones often. They are very easy as there's no butter to faff around with.

2 cups grated tasty cheddar cheese
1.5 cups self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
pinch cayenne pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk

Mix cheese and dry ingredients together in bowl. Whisk egg and milk together in another bowl. Add liquid ingredients to dry and mix lightly.
Spoon into medium or mini well oiled muffin tins. Optionally sprinkle a little extra grated cheese and paprika on top.

Bake at 210 degrees Celcius for about 12 minutes for medium sized muffins or 10 minutes for mini muffines, until golden brown and tops spring back when pressed.

These work best if you don't use paper liners, as they form a lovely chewy crust where they are in contact with the metal baking tin.

Thanks. My muffin tins are silicon so I'll let you know how I get on.

I've made Phil Vickery's muffins tonight. They tasted lovely, but stuck to the paper case, so we lost about a quarter of the thing! Any ideas why? And what we can do to avoid it? I did think I would maybe make them in the yorkshire pudding tin, then I wouldn't need to use cases.

I have just made Zachary Quack's in a silicon muffin tin. Got that lovely crust. They are delicious. Really cheesy. Will be doing a double batch next time.

Have you tried freezing them ZQ?
