Recipe: Bacon, corn and cheese savoury muffins

Posted on

We served these little beauties up at the cafe over the weekend, and had no less than four requests for the recipe!

I love it when I create something that has people excited and wanting to cook at home – and so with one lovely lady giving me a call to remind me of my promise to post this to our blog – I thought I’d better get organised and keep my word!

These are so quick, so easy, and most importantly, super tasty. There’s certainly not enough savoury muffins in the world as far as I’m concerned. They take minutes to throw together, and less than 30 minutes in the oven. Perfect for everyone’s lunch boxes … if they make it that far!

Bacon, corn and cheese savoury muffins

2014-06-27 09.22.50

  • 1 3/4 cups of self-raising flour
  • 130gm of lean bacon, diced
  • 130gm of lean bacon, diced
  • 2 cups of grated tasty cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 60gm of butter
  • 130gm of corn kernels (blanch if fresh, canned or frozen is fine)
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped


Preheat your oven to 200 and grease your muffin tray with some cooking spray.

Fry bacon in a small, non-stick frying pan until nice and crisp – but not burnt.

Sift flour into a large mixing bowl – then add the cheese, corn, bacon and half the spring onion.

Whisk the wet ingredients (milk, butter and egg) together before pouring into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.

Mix everything together with a spatula, ensuring you don’t over-work the batter.

Divide  batter into the muffin molds (I like to make 10 muffins rather than 12 to get larger muffins). Top with remaining spring onions.

Bake for 20 minutes (checking at the 15-minute mark) or until a skewer comes out cleaning.

Serve warm with butter and a nice latte or coffee or tea of your choice.
