The best breakfast on the go..these savory Cheese and Jalapeno muffins have become my new favorite!
Life of a food blogger is hard..especially when you’re the “Recipe Blogger” type like me. Too much food and too little time. Sometimes I have a second lot ready before the first one is eaten up..so it gets HARD. Thankfully I have friends and family that are always willing to polish off everything that’s left 😉 The sweets are the last ones to go though. Yes..no matter how enticing they look, the truth is people can’t eat too many of those, especially when they’re made at least 2 times a week..To avoid this chaos I try to restrict my sweet recipes to 1 a week..so you can imagine my excitement when I came across a really simple recipe to put together. A savory muffins with two of my favourite ingredients..cheese and jalapenos. When you’ve got these two in a recipe, you know its going to taste AMAZING ! 😀
These Cheese and Jalapeno muffins were really easy to put together..exactly the opposite of what I had expected. Did I mention they’re eggless? Yes..completely..I mean if you want to put an egg you can but because my Indian readers prefer eggless recipes, so that’s what I’m going to give y’all ! 🙂 These muffins taste phenomenal and you don’t need a lot of ingredients for these. I’m pretty sure you’ll find these in your refrigerator right now (except jalapenos maybe) so why don’t you get started?
RECIPE: Cheese and Jalapeno Muffins (eggless)
Makes: 6 muffins Prep Time: 15-20 minutes Baking Time: 20-25 minutes
NOTE: 1 cup = 240 ml ; Please note that 1 cup means 1 measuring cup not 1 tea cup. A tea cup is approximately 100-150 ml which is way smaller than an actual measuring cup. Please refer to the weight measurements given next to the ingredients in case you don’t have measuring cups.
- All Purpose Flour/Maida, 1 cup or 128 grams
- Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
- Sugar, 2 teaspoon
- Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
- Milk, 2/3 cup or 160 ml

- Cheddar Cheese, grated, 1 cup or 100 grams approx.
- Jalapenos, chopped, 3 tablespoons
- Salt, for the top

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and set aside to be used later.
In another bowl, mix together milk, melted butter and yogurt. Add the flour mixture to this little by little until you no longer see any lumps. Do not overmix.
Add in the grated cheese, chopped jalapenos and salt (1/2 teaspoon).
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees for 10 minutes. While that’s heating line a muffin tray with muffin liners and spoon in the batter until they’re 2/3rd full. Sprinkle salt and pepper according to taste and put one jalapeno slice on top of each muffin.
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.
These muffins are best eaten warm.
