Trick Or Treat! Pumpkin, Cheese and Chive Muffins

Todays Treat is a recipe ...

Pumpkin, Cheese and Chive Muffins

Have you ever wondered what to do with all that excess pumpkin after carving Jack-o'-lanterns?

Heres a fun recipe for savoury muffins, why not give them a spin?

You will need:

275 g Plain Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Caster Sugar
100 g Grated Cheese
275 g Grated Pumpkin
2 tbsp Chives
85 g Melted Butter
2 eggs
175 ml Skimmed Milk 
Pumpkin Seeds to Sprinkle


1. Pre-heat oven to 190 ÂșC (Gas Mark 5).

2. In a bowl, sift the dry ingredients.

3. Stir in the cheese, chives and pumpkin into the dry mixture.


(I wish I had used a larger bowl now)!

4. In another bowl beat together the eggs, melted butter (allow to cool) and the milk.

5. Add into the dry mixture and stir until just combined.

    (Defiantly needed a larger bowl).

6. Distribute the mixture evenly into muffin cases and sprinkle over the pumpkin seeds
(oops I forgot the pumpkin seeds)!

7. Cook for 25-30 minutes

Don't they smell wonderful?!
