Courgettes and chorizo muffins

courgettes and chorizo muffin

The courgette season is coming to an end. Because the weather has been so warm lately, mine are still giving a little bit. So here is another recipe that is super easy and always a family pleaser  in my house, Courgettes and chorizo muffins. It is especially nice on a Sunday morning as part of a brunch.

Ingredients:

225 g self raising flour

one egg

half teaspoon of baking powder

100 g grated cheddar

50 g diced chorizo

50 g black olives

one spring onion

1 grated courgette

175 ml milk

25 ml of olive oil

Greased muffin tray

Pre-heat oven to 180 º C

Preparation

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, cheese, courgettes, onion and olives. Mix milk, egg and olive oil together, then pour over your dry mix. Quickly mix but don’t over do it otherwise your muffins will be very heavy. For a light fluffy muffin, you quickly mix the ingredients together. And that is more or less it. Fill your muffin tin half way to the top, leaving a bit of space for your muffin to rise. Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes or so, until nice and golden on top. Serve them hot as part of a brunch or even with a soup. If you are vegetarian, the chorizo is not necessary. The olives and spring onions add plenty of flavour anyway.

Bon appétit
