Today I am going for super simple. Is it possible? For sure!
I baked a lot this week. And that’s saying a lot since I normally bake quite a lot anyway!
But I had a few birthday cakes to bake this week, so all my other bakes were kept very simple.
This is a quick and easy ham and Gruyere cheese muffin. And as with all muffin recipes, it is a matter of mixing the dry ingredients with the wet ones, and adding whatever filling you like.
So, in a bowl, I combined the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and dried thyme.
In another bowl, I mixed the wet ingredients: milk, egg and melted butter.
I also chopped the ham and grated the cheese.
The wet ingredients were added to the dry ones.
Then I added the ham and the cheese.
And mixed again.
Finally I spooned this mixture into the cavities of a greased muffin tray.
And baked them.
Aren’t they cute?
These muffins taste a little like the American biscuits, which of course, aren’t biscuits at all.
But no matter. Because they are still delicious!
