Bake something savoury for Spring

We're quite in love with the sweet things in life at the Trex Bakery, but we thought we'd mix it up this month. We challenged Claire to bake something savoury for Spring!

Why not try Claire's recipe for savoury courgette and cheese muffins?

Sumptuous Savoury Muffins with Courgette and Cheese!

I love baking familiar treats with a twist. These savoury muffins are super-easy and quick to bake.

They's also incredibly versatile: pack them in tupperware for a family outing, freeze them, have them for lunch, snacks, it's all good!  

Ingredients

  • 50g Trex
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 small courgette
  • 100g medium strength cheddar
  • 175ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • Crushed black petter or mixed herbs (optional)

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200º/180º fan/ Gas mark 6. While your oven is heating, start by adding liners to a muffin tray.

Step 2

Now grate the cheese and courgette into a large bowl. I find it easier to grate the cheese first, as otherwise the courgette will soak the grater which makes grating the cheese awkward. 

Step 3

Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon or spatula. You'll need some elbow grease for this one as there's a lot of nutritious vegetable debris in the mix! Ensure the Trex is mixed evenly throughout.

Step 4

Take a couple of teaspoons and carefully spoon the mix into the muffin cases in your tin. Ensure that you divide the mix as evenly as you can to ensure evenly sized muffins at the end. 

Step 5

Now all there is to do is pop them in the oven for 25 minutes and get ready to enjoy some delicious savoury treats! Once they're done, allow them to cool on a wire rack. 

Top Tip: plan, plan and plan!

This is a delicious bake to eat right away while it's warm and the cheese and courgette flavours are fresh and vibrant. However, the BEST thing about this snack is that you can make loads and then freeze them for a later date.

So when you make a batch, plan for the future and get a few muffins into the freezer.
