• 1 tsp olive oil
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 300ml buttermilk
  • 50g mature cheddar, grated
  • 50g Taste the Difference air-dried ham, torn
  • 100g courgette, grated


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.


    CHILDREN: Grease a 12-hole muffin tin with the olive oil. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and paprika.

  2. 2

    CHILDREN: In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together, then fold into the flour mixture with three-quarters of the cheddar, the ham and the grated courgette, until well combined. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

  3. 3

    Spoon the mixture into the muffin holes until they are three-quarters full, then top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and a skewer inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly, then run a knife around the edges of the muffins and pop them out.
