Another savory masterpiece..these Tomato and Cheese Muffins are perfect for breakfast, quick lunch or with tea. They’re super dense and will remind you of winters with their warm flavors!
If there’s something I’m inspired by right now its the concept of savory muffins. These little cheese filled cakes are not just quick to make but taste phenomenal no matter what the ingredient is. So when I found a recipe for Jalapeno and Cheese Muffins on joythebaker.com I couldn’t contain my excitement..Why, you ask? Because now I won’t have to slave 3 hours in the kitchen just to get my savory fix. Before this if I needed something savory I would resort to making breads and we all know how long that can take..its not the slaving that kills me, its the patience! The dough rising time is what puts me off. But now that I know how to make these I don’t have to wait that long. I have my muffins ready in 45 minutes flat.
Unlike sweet muffins..these ones are little on the dense side. Not as fluffy as my Cheese and Jalapeno Muffins…these are gooey and full of warm flavors. I’m pretty sure these are going to be my go-to muffins come winters, they taste divine with all the onion and garlic. So start prepping now and get on with making these ! 😀
RECIPE: Eggless Tomato and Cheese Muffins
Makes: 9 medium muffins Prep Time: 15-20 minutes Baking Time: 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.}
- Flour, 1 cup or 14 tablespoons or 128 grams
- Sugar, 2 teaspoons
- Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
- Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
- Milk, 2/3 cup or 160 ml
- Melted Butter, 3 tablespoons
- Yogurt, 2 tablespoons
- Pizza Sauce, 1/2 cup
- Pepper, 1/2 teaspoons
- Cheddar Cheese, grated, 2/3 cup
Make your pizza sauce and let it cool.
In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Keep aside to be used later.
In a separate bowl, mix melted butter, yogurt and milk. Add this to the dry mixture little by little until everything is properly combined. Keep mixing to avoid lumps.
Add pepper, pizza sauce and cheese and combine everything. DO NOT OVERMIX.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Spoon the batter in muffin tins that have been buttered and floured properly to avoid sticking. You can even line the muffin tin with muffin liners of your choice. Fill the muffin cups 2/3rd full.
Bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees.

Haha! Too bad I didn’t see this post yesterday when I was pulling my hair out since we don’t have any food or eggs in this house. We are moving and that means and empty pantry fro the next two weeks. Boy am I excited to have stuff in our new house….sorry, a bit of a rabbit trail. Lovely post as always Radhika, and totally agree about having it with tea. Everything is good with tea!!!!
Ooh noo.. Too bad you didn’t see it yest! Now that you have this recipe you can make it as soon as you restock ! And yes.. What’s not good with tea?!
Well this might be a little off topic, but I would really appreciate if you could suggest on an oven that I could get my hands on.
At present I’m using a really old otg passed on by my aunt and I’m not quite happy with the results.
Could you suggest an oven that I could get? Something to start with.
Sorry for the late reply.
I use Bajaj platini PX 52 Otrc 29 liters. It was quite cheap when I bought it, I think about 7k. It has a fan too so that ensures even baking. Perfect to start with! 🙂
I’ve got my eyes on a built-in Kaff oven though 😉
