Savoury Mustard Muffins with Smoked Salmon Cream

    57 minutes

    An impressive starter, these savoury muffins come with a luscious smoked salmon and cream cheese filling in the centre. Perfect for entertaining, these can be made a few hours ahead - simply chill until 30 minutes before serving. You could also make mini muffins instead for 'canape size' bites, and use the salmon mixture only as a topping.

    1. Mustard Muffins: Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.
    2. Whisk together butter and eggs, then mix in mustard, salt and pepper.
    3. Combine flour and baking powder, then add to the butter mixture and stir until smooth and well combined. Fold in the capers. Spoon into a muffin tin lined with paper cases, filling each 3/4 full.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes, or until risen and golden. Remove and cool on a wire rack while you make the filling.
    5. Filling and Topping: Combine the cream cheese, salmon and yoghurt in a food processor. Blend until smooth and well combined. Fold in the lemon zest, lemon juice and dill. Place in a piping bag for easy filling and topping.
    6. To Assemble: Cut a small hole in the centre of each muffin, reaching the bottom of the paper case. Pipe the salmon filling into each hole, then pipe more filling on the top of each muffin. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper and garnish with fresh dill.
