Bacon Cornbread Style Muffins


These are joyful little savoury muffins.  Perfect for lunch with salad and chutneys or afternoon tea.

I like things to be a little tangy so have added chilli flakes and spring onion but if you wish it a little plainer just remove those ingredients.

This mix made 16 muffins.

  • Put your cornmeal, flour, cumin, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl and mix

  • When the ingredients are combined make a well

  • In your measuring jug, measure out your buttermilk, add the melted butter, eggs and honey and whisk until well combined

  • Slowly add the liquid into the well and with your whisk on it’s lowest setting combine the ingredients.

    Keep adding liquid until all used

  • You should then have a smooth thick batter.  Scrape the sides down with a spatula

  • Add your grated cheese, chopped bacon, and chopped spring onion into the batter and mix in

    Spoon the mixture into your muffin cases until they are about two third full.

    Pop them in oven for 20 – 25 minutes, until golden in colour and they bounce back when you press the top gently.

  • Let them cool for 10 minutes in the baking tray and then turn them out.
