All this cold weather calls for a bit of comfort food baking. I love making muffins as they’re so quick and easy. So yesterday I mixed up a batch of savoury muffins – Spicy Chorizo & Red Pepper.
We sampled the first ones about 5 minutes after they came out of the oven – very satisfyingly delicious they were too!
The recipe is from ‘1 mix, 50 muffins’ and goes like this:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/400 degrees F/Gas 6 & put 12 muffin cases into a muffin tray.
Sift the following dry ingredients together:
280g plain flour – 1tbsp baking powder – 1/4 tsp salt – 1 tsp paprika
Finely chop & add to the above:
1 small red pepper – 100g chorizo (without skin)
Lightly beat together:
2 eggs – 250ml buttermilk – 6 tbsp sunflower oil – 1 crushed garlic clove
Stir gently into the dry ingredients until combined – do not over-mix.
Spoon into cases, bake for about 20mins until well risen & golden.
Let cool for 5 mins then sprinkle with paprika and tuck in
