A few posts ago I teased you with some photos, and now it's time to share the recipe for those muffins many of your were so fond about. They are easy to make, and no stand mixer required. I personally do all mixing by hand.
3 cups (470 g) plain flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, beaten
2/3 cup (150 ml) olive oil
1 cup (250 ml) milk
1 cup (100-125 gr) shredded cheese (I used Swiss, Pecorino Romano, Feta, Mozzarella)
1 Tablespoon dried dill (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with butter.
2. In a large bowl combine together the flour, salt, baking powder, and dill. Stir and set aside.
3. In another bowl , whisk the eggs, then add oil and milk and whisk again.
4. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture, add the egg mixture and shredded cheese (any cheese of your choice), and mix all ingredients. Do not overmix!
5. Fill the cups with the batter, and level it with the rim.
6. Place in the middle rack in the oven, and bake 20-25 minutes.
When muffins are golden brown in color and springy to the touch, insert a toothpick in the center: it should come out clean.
Cool it for 5 minutes (if you can), and enjoy with butter or raspberry jam.

These muffins look delicious, beautiful photos too!ReplyDelete
Aww, thank you! I wanted to catch on my photo how light and fluffy those muffins were...:)Delete
these look soooo good! and that butter is just oozing off the page at me ... love it! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Averie! Baking is fun after all. I have something else in the oven, and just hope it will come out photogenic! :)Delete
Marina, what charming photos of beautifully textured savory muffins! I know I will enjoy these, flavored with good olive oil and dill from my garden. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Jean, dill from the garden would be fantastic! I can't wait for my dill to grow so I can add fresh smell to it! :)Delete
They look so lovely and moist inside! The cross section photo really shows that Marina! :DReplyDelete
Thank you Lorraine! I am glad my photo worked, and you could see how fluffy those muffins were. :)Delete
What gorgeous soft muffins my friend, melt in mouth :DReplyDelete

Thanks Uru! They don't look that soft on the first photo, so I had to brake it in half to show their inside...:)Delete
So mouthwatering especially looking at that final photo.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lindy! I appreciate your compliment on the photo, means a lot to me...:)Delete
These look so good, you're making me hungry!ReplyDelete
:) I have some to share, my friend!Delete
I think I smell them! These look so good, I'm going to have to make them. Thanks Marina!ReplyDelete
Let me know how it goes, if you make it. :)Delete
Great photos! And an extremely nice recipe. I'd say the dried dill isn't really optional, wouldn't you? ;-)ReplyDelete
You got me, John: not for me, if I can help it! :) I would also add fresh dill if I had some... I planted some for the fall and winter and just hope the heat won't kill it, again...Delete
Oh Marina, You have remembered that I was waiting for this recipe. Your muffins look awesome. I will bake them tomorrow or on Sunday and will report back and will tell you how much I love them :-DReplyDelete
Yes, I did Joanna! Make sure you don't overmix the batter: just incorporate all the ingredients together. The dough will be lumpy, and that's normal. Good luck! Let me know how you like it...:)Delete
Thanks for the hint Marina :DDelete
You have got me ready to crank up my oven and make muffins! These look amazing! I bet fresh herbs of any variety would also be delicious!ReplyDelete
Yes, Chris, any herbs you like would work here. I just happened to love dill in any form...:)Delete
Those muffins sure look light, fluffy and tender, a thin layer of butter is all that I would need.ReplyDelete
Yes, Norma, thin layer of butter on those muffins makes it a perfect breakfast... Thanks for your kind comment! :)Delete
They look amazing! They are making me hungry! :)ReplyDelete
Aww, thanks Jess! :)Delete
There are few things in life better than homemade muffins slathered with butter. These look absolutely scrumptious!ReplyDelete
Thanks Valerie! Butter makes everything better..:)Delete
Your cheese muffins look delicious!!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe : )ReplyDelete
You are welcome Sheila! I am glad you liked it :)Delete
The testure of those looks perfect - lovely combination of cheeses too.ReplyDelete
Liz, those cheeses I used at different times, not all together. But it would make a nice combination to mix in one batch too, as you suggested. Thanks for your comment! :)Delete
These muffins look terrific!ReplyDelete

Thanks! Welcome to my blog...:)Delete
These are just perfect, Marina, and love that the recipe calls for olive oil. I bet the aroma that fills your kitchen while they bake is wonderful. I don't now how you can wait 5 minutes for them to cool, though. Sounds near impossible, to me.ReplyDelete
Thanks John! Yes, you are right, kitchen smells delicious... :)Delete
very yummy this muffins. I would have them for lunch with a salad. Yum!ReplyDelete
Alida, sometimes when I run out of bread, I quickly mix a batch for dinner or lunch... :)Delete
These are gorgeous. My hubs would go nuts for these.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kim! My husband loves them too as well as the teenager. And when I serve it with a piece of meat makes my men very happy! :)Delete
Looks really good! I love anything with cheese :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Jane! I will try next time to make gluten free muffins. :)Delete
Those look great Marina. I thought they were scones at first... then I suddenly realised they were muffins. With cheese no less! How cool is that? Love your little basket too... so pretty.ReplyDelete
Charles, I can see how you could see them as scones, the first photo is a bit confusing. But they are muffins, very soft and moist... :)Delete
Thanks for your compliment!
Great looking muffins, so moist and soft. Loved the addition of cheese in them. Will bookmarked this for later. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Veronica! I am glad you enjoyed it...:)Delete
Gorgeous muffins. I love savoury cheesy muffins.ReplyDelete
Thank you Angie! :)Delete
These sound delicious, Marina! I love the idea of olive oil in a savory muffin :)ReplyDelete
Hi Lizzy, I was very surprised when I first made this muffins. I had a block of butter warming on the counter, and then I realized I don't need it...:)Delete
Olive oil make them lighter, i think. Thanks for your comment, Lizzy! :)
Your muffins are relly good!!! like your blog :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Valentina! :)Delete
Delicious!!! Thanks for your visit, your blog is fantastic! :) Kisses :-*ReplyDelete
Thank you Valentina! I am glad you like it here. :)Delete
Yum! What wonderful savory muffins! I love cheese and I'm completely mesmerized by cheese muffins with butter picture. Drool...ReplyDelete
Thank you Nami! I wanted to show how soft and fluffy it was on that photo. :)Delete
Marina, you are wonderful baker. The muffins are so mouthwatering!-)) Mmmmmm-)))ReplyDelete
Thank you for the compliment. I am fearless when it comes to baking savory goods, but if I need to make something sweet, I am all panic...:) I don't know why, same thing, just with sugar. Yet I feel very uncomfortable making it... Strange, ha? :)Delete
