Have you checked out the new blog sections? 😉
To continue our Muffin Tertulias, it was time to try a special recipe I had found (by chance) on Pinterest! Theoriginal recipe said that this muffin was just like Starbucks’, but I disagree. Starbucks’ muffins are always too dry! 😀
These were an absolute hit – they disappeared as soon as they came out of the oven, and I had to “hide” these two for the picture!
For 12 muffins, you’ll need:
250 mL milk
10 g instant yeast
250 g all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Black pepper and oregano
200 g parmesan, coarsely grated – save a bit for decorating the top of the muffins
100 g melted butter
As this recipe calls for instant yeast, the process is a bit different than normal muffins. But it’s still quick! 🙂
Mix the yeast with the (warm) milk and let it foam. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt, black pepper, and oregano.
Meanwhile, melt the butter and let it cool down a bit. When the butter has been cooled down, mix in the egg and the milk with yeast. Add the flour mix and most of the grated cheese. As always, the idea is to mix with a rubber spatula just until you can’t see any more flour – don’t knead! 🙂
Divide the dough into the cups, always filling only up to 3/4 of the capacity, and cover with the reserved grated cheese.
Now the process is different: as this is a yeasted dough, let it rest for 1 hour – it didn’t reeeeally rise much during that period, but I didn’t worry about it.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes, or until it turns golden and passes the toothpick test.
Cool it down a little bit and eat!
In the unlikely event of leftovers, just place them in a ziploc bag and freeze!
