Spinach Cheddar Muffins | Spinach Cheddar Breakfast Muffins | HBC#5

Its time for the HBC post again. I thought that I would never make it. Thanks to my laziness this time and I don't know why but I was not in the mood for baking. In fact, even cooking has taken a backseat. I haven't made the dosa batter for two weeks, its been uppma for days and yesterday night it was the hubby who made dinner for us. And don't ask about his lunchbox, he's been eating pasta and pizza at the office for weeks together. I just don't know what's on to me. But I know that I am off and not right for some stupid unkown reason.

However, I didn't want to skip the challenge and when I went through the group, I saw many friends putting up these spinach cheddar muffins. Sounded great for breakfast and mustering some self perseverance, rolled up my sleeves and got onto baking these soft yummy muffins. Talking about the challenge, it was Shama of Easy2cook recipes who picked up the recipes for this month's HBC challenge and there were both savory and sweet bakes. I was first hooked to the Honey drizzled semolina cake that she had suggested and I had made up my mind that the cake it was. But then I switched on to the savory bake. The semolina cake, I still am gonna try that some day.

~*What U Need*~
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp (I used 1/4 tsp only)
Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
Bacon - 2 tbsp, fried in oil
Red chilli flakes - 1/2 tsp
Italian seasoning - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - a dash

Salt - 1/2 tsp
Butter - tbsp (I used 4tbsp butter + 2 tbsp olive oil)
Whole Milk - 1 Cup (I used 1/2 cup milk plus 1/2 cup buttermilk)
Egg - 1
Spinach - 1/2 cup, fresh, chopped
Mild cheddar cheese - 1 cup, shredded

How I made it:
Pre heat the oven to 350 F. Prepare the muffin pan by greasing and flouring it and keep it aside. I greased it with some oil. In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients(flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt) and mix well. In another bowl add the milk+buttermilk mixture, melted butter, oil, egg and mix well. Now add cheddar cheese, followed by seasonings (garlic powder, red chilli flakes, italian seasoning, pepper powder) and combine.

Throw in the chopped spinach and mix well. Add this to the dry ingredients and fold gently. Scoop 2 tbsps into the muffin pans and bake for 25-30 mins. The recipe says you get 12 muffins but I got 10 muffins only. :( Cool and remove it from the muffin pan and serve it.

** My Note:
** I have given all the changes that I made in blue.
** I used bacon because my huss loves and the whole lot was finished by him.

Serve for breakfast with some orange juice... We had it with some coriander cashew pesto...

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
