Makes 10.

Ingredients:

  • 275g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1 level teaspoon salt
  • 125g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 75g pitted green olives, sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 200g Tims Dairy Low Fat Natural yogurt
  • 75g butter, melted

Method:

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a muffin tin with 10 paper cases. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl then stir in the sugar, salt, ¾ of the grated cheese, olives and chives. Mix well.

Beat the eggs separately with the yogurt and melted butter then pour over the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined – don’t worry if it is a bit lumpy – then fill the cases using all the mixture between the 10 cases.

Sprinkle over the remainder of the cheese then bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen and golden brown.

To Serve:

Enjoy warm or cold with a selection of cheeses, grapes and tomatoes for a really tasty treat!
