A tasty treat for Christmas.
Makes: 24 mini-muffins
- 140g plain flour
- A heaped teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 egg
- 120ml milk
- Large pinch of salt
- ½ small red onion peeled and finely chopped
- 50g Goats cheese
- 1 teaspoon of thyme leaves
- A small knob of butter
- 2 dessert spoons of Onion marmalade, I used shop bought
- 2 dessert spoons for crushed hazelnuts
- Lightly grease 2 x 12-hole mini muffin tins. The tins I use are non-stick, if you are not sure if your tins are non-stick, I suggest you use mini muffin cases.
- Pre-heat the oven to 200c
- To start, melt the butter in a pan over a gentle heat and add the onion, cook it slowly to soften the onion.
- Sift the flour and baking powder together, stir in the salt, add the onion, crumble in the goat cheese and thyme leaves. Gently stir the ingredient together.
- Next, beat the egg and milk together in a small bowl. Fold the egg and milk into the dry mix and then divide the mixture between the 2 muffin trays.
- Divide the onion marmalade between the muffins, literally a little dot on top and sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts
- Then bake in the oven for 20 minutes until well risen and golden.
- Remove the muffins from the tins and eat as warm as possible.
