Spinach and Cheese Muffins ( For Home Bakers )

This month for the Home Bakers Challenge there were some sweet as well as savoury bakes chosen by the host of the month Shama Nagarajan and so I decided to go for the savory ones, because  I usually like baking something spicy which can be had for breakfast or as a snack .

 So I made these simple and delicious muffins which were so soft and cheesy that every one really hogged on them .

 It just took me little more than half an hour to complete the full recipe i.e. from washing and cutting the spinach to gathering all the ingredients and mixing and baking.

And so I was mighty pleased as a lot of time was saved . I just love such time saving dishes which are delicious yet full of nutrients. I surely am going to make these muffins regularly .

Thanks priya  annd  Shama  for this lovely recipe.





Ingredients :

1 n 1/ 2 cup.....................whole wheat flour
3 tbsp............................melted home made butter ( loni )
1 tsp..............................baking powder
1/4 tsp...........................baking soda
1...................................egg
1/2 cup..........................finely chopped spinach leaves
3 cubes...........................brittania cheese
1 cup..............................milk
salt to taste


Method :

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and keep the greased muffin tray ready.

In a mixer , mix the whole wheat flour, salt, baking  powder and baking soda well for 10 seconds.

Remove the flour and in the same mixer , mix butter , milk and egg for 2 to 3 mintues.

Chop the cheese cubes to small pieces.

Now take the milk egg mixture in big bowl and  add the cheese cubes and spinach to it.

Mix well with a wooden spoon .

Now add the flour, salt mixture and gently fold with spoon till all is just mixed properly.

Now fill half the muffin mould with the batter ( keep some space to rice).
