Yum, love cheesy dishes, and my kids would love this if I pack in their lunch/snack for school! Much better alternatives than sugary ones for snack time. 🙂
I made those today and they turned out delicious! Thank you very much for sharing this great recipe. Very simple and yummy!
So glad to hear that Beatriz. Thanks for sending me this comment. Hope you will try other recipes too and hear from you soon:)
I made these last night for a school bake sale. They taste amazing and look just like the picture but unfortunately I used paper muffin cups to line the muffin tray (usually I don’t use them but I wanted to make them look more appealing for the bake sale) and unfortunately the cups stuck to the muffins. I’m not sure why – they have plenty of fat in them and I waited till they were cooled. Anyway, just a word of warning if you’re planning to use paper cups – DON’T!
Thank you Holy for your comment. I am glad you like these muffins and I am sorry they stuck to muffins paper cups. I rarely use paper cups but I am glad you warned us about this 🙂 this cheese batter is very delicate and as the cheese melts while in the oven it probably sticks to paper cups. Sometimes the old methods are better.. like dusting the muffin tray before adding the batter 🙂
Yummy! I love everything with cheese. These muffins look so delish and inviting.
I made these today…Everyone at my place even my in laws loved it..I topped it off with cheese,paprika n green n black olives..looked like a beauty on my tea table..thankyouu so much.. *Hugs*
So glad to hear that Ayla. Next time I will try with some olives too.. must have looked awesome.
Just made these this morning for brunch, and they turned out lovely! Thank you so much Ella, now I can’t wait to try out the other recipes you have
So glad you enjoyed these:) let me know whenever you try any other of my recipes. If you like cheese .. the Cheddar biscuits are highly recommended.
good morning, can you say 1 cup how many ml is 200ml or 250ml? thank you
The cup has 240 ml capacity. Let me know if you try these out:)
I’ve tried this last week. It taste and turn out great! Thank you so much Ella! Can’t wait to try other recipes.
I am so glad Rina that you enjoyed the recipe, and thanks a bunch for coming back with a review
Thank you for your interesting blog.
I have tried your Banana bread and it was great from my first time . Everyone likes it.
It inspires me to try others of your recipes. And this one is my second choice. But I just wonder about the FLOUR you use. What kind of flour is it?
I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe.. hope you will try some other recipes too.. I usually use all purpose flour for cakes (type 480 or type 550) For bread I use bread flour (type 650)
This looks amazing. I am planning to try this today. Just wanted to know if there is any alternative / substitute for an egg as I am a vegetarian.
Maybe they will turn just fine if you don't add the egg at all.. and if necessary reduce the amount of flour
Will it work without the yogurt? suggestions for substitution?
maybe add buttermilk or simply milk
They look delicious. i just wanted to know if i can omit the egg or substitute it with anything else?
I found this.. maybe it will help you: To replace 1 egg: 2 tablespoon flour + 1/2 teaspoon oil + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder + 2 tablespoons liquid (milk, cream, buttermilk, diluted yogurt, or dairy free alternatives like coconut milk, soy milk, etc) beaten together until smooth.
Added 30g of chopped cilantro to the liquid ingredients before mixing into the dry. Amazing!
These are so yum! Super cheesy. I will be making these a lot more.
Giving this a try (miracle that I am even IN the kitchen, let alone trying this) … tick tock tick tock … in the oven … lets see …
Thanks for sharing this recipe… The best cheese muffin recipe I ve tried and baked so far ^^
these look amazing!
I wonder if I can use creamchese instead of cheddar
No, the cream cheese is to soft.
I wanted to know if I can use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. If yes, for how long do I have to bake.
hi. i made these ..they taste very nice but mine were not as moist as urs they were more dense????
