Bacon and zucchini combine beautifully in this savoury muffin recipe. Note: you don't have to precook the bacon or zucchini, but I like it a little browned.

Makes: 6 large muffins

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (310ml) milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 4 rashers bacon, rind removed
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C and grease a 6-cup muffin tin or line with patty cups.
  2. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, milk and melted butter until combined.
  3. Finely dice the bacon and zucchini. Heat a little oil in a frypan and add the bacon. Cook 5 minutes until browning, then remove. Add the zucchini to the frypan and cook 2 minutes until starting to take on some colour. Remove.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to make a mostly smooth batter, don't over mix. Stir in the bacon pieces, zucchini and grated cheese.
  5. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 of the way full and bake for 25-30 minutes. If you like, sprinkle a little extra cheese on top for the last 5 minutes of baking.
