Roasted Garlic & Cheddar Muffins

These muffins are great to have alongside some soup, in your lunchbox or as a savoury snack. Yes, there is a lot of garlic in these muffins but don’t worry.  When it’s roasted garlic turns very sweet and loses it’s pungency so you don’t have to worry about garlic breath.

  1. 6 large cloves of garlic
  2. 120g plain flour
  3. 120g spelt flour
  4. 2 tsp baking powder
  5. 100g strong cheddar cheese, grated
  6. 1 tsp dried rosemary
  7. 1 tsp dried thyme
  8. 1/2 tsp salt
  9. 2 eggs
  10. 250ml milk + 1 tbsp lemon juice
  11. 75ml olive oil
  12. Sunflower seeds
  1. Pre heat your oven to 180C (350F). Line a muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Place the garlic cloves (still in their skins) on a sheet of foil. Drizzle with a little olive oil and then pull the side together to form a parcel. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes then set aside to cool.
  3. While the garlic is roasting mix together the flours, baking powder, salt, cheese, rosemary & thyme and mix well.
  4. Add the lemon juice to the milk and set aside for 2-3 minutes so that it curdles. Add the eggs and olive oil and beat together.
  5. When the garlic has cooled, remove the cloves from the skins and mash them with a fork. Add to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold together gently until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix or you will end up with very heavy, dense muffins.
  7. Divide the mixture between the paper cases and sprinkle with a few sunflower seeds.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a sharp knife comes out clean.
