    So yummy - I could barely resist eating them all, hot out of the oven. i'm rubbish at baking but these came out brilliantly. You definately use self-raising floour.

    I haven't used this recipe, but yes you will need SR flour. Or plain flour and some baking powder.

    Can someone confirm whether this needs plain or SR flour? It's kind of people to post recipes, but it is a shame when people just put 'flour' as happens with quite a few recipes.

    Not impressed, although used plain flour as presumed better for savoury muffins, perhaps should have added baking powder. Added quite a bit of milk, more than a dash, to get consistency, and result is pale, dry and stuck to the muffin cases.

    Thoroughly yummy! If you don't have the onion chutney (like I didn't) you can always fry 1/2 an onion, then add a splash of balsamic vinegar and 1tsp of sugar. Chutney an awful lot easier though!

    wasn't quite sure about the consistency and presume it was SR flour? Also, the temp was too hot as they started clouring very quickly. I lowered it to about 175C. I put tomato chutney in them, renamed them pizza muffins. Very tasty.

    These are perfect for those little monsters who won't eat bread (like my two) - in terms of nutrition these are actually slightly better for you than a cheese sandwich and the onion makes them very moreish. If packing in a lunchbox do leave to cool first (otherwise they go mushy). We make ours while putting the breakfast out so they are cool enough by the time we leave for preschool to pop in the bag.
