When you think ‘muffins’, you’re likely to imagine chocolate or blueberries in batter flecked with brown sugar. Scones – rich in raisins, piled with jam and cream, whichever should go on top. Pancakes – sweet. Biscuits – ditto. Tarte Tatin – likewise.
But all the above can come in savoury versions and none the worse for it, just depends what you fancy. Cheese scones are great, just try this recipe. Pancakes with spinach filling are simply gorgeous. Cheddar or Parmesan cheese biscuits – lovely. And I’ve tried a most delicious tarte tatin made with caramelised tomatoes.
These muffins are made with sweetcorn, onions and bacon, excellent for lunch or just as a snack. A little bit like old fashioned corn fritters except baked into muffin shapes. The recipe comes from Dan Lepard’s ‘Short and Sweet’.
