Have You Ever Tried Salty Muffins?

When it comes to convenience foods, muffins are definitely on the list. They cook quickly and freeze very well! What’s more, muffins aren’t just sweet snacks. There are a variety of ingredients you can use to create savoury muffins that are as tasty as they are nutritious.


Tasty muffin combinations

Salty muffins are prepared with the same basic ingredients as sweet muffins, minus the sugar of course. Both are made from flour, yeast, salt, butter, milk and eggs. From that point, you can add any other ingredients you really like.

Here are some combinations to try:

  • Curried chicken and pumpkin seeds
  • Roquefort cheese and walnuts
  • Salmon and zucchini
  • Tuna and olives
  • Spinach and ricotta
  • Apple, ham and prunes
  • Smoked salmon and leek or goat cheese

5 secrets to perfect muffins

Homemade muffins can sometimes turn out chewy, heavy and flat. Here are some fail-proof tips to making delicious, tender and moist muffins every time.

1Never mix the dry ingredients with the wet using an electric mixer. The wet ingredients should be mixed into the dry gradually and delicately; don't worry about lumps. The secret to success is to work the batter as little as possible.

2Fill the muffin pan cavities to 2/3 full and bake in a preheated 350°F (180°C) to 375°F (190°C) oven.

3To ensure that your small fruits, such as raisins, blueberries and raspberries, are well distributed in the muffins, simply shake them in a little flour before adding them to the mix. If you are using frozen berries, do not defrost — add them to the mix at the very last minute, otherwise the color will bleed into the batter and the result will not be quite as appetizing.

4Using vegetable oil renders a lighter muffin; using butter renders a more moist muffin.

5Silicone moulds may give better results than paper or aluminium.; the muffins are easier to remove from the silicone than rigid moulds.
