These are really good and only take 15 minutes to make and 20 – 30 minutes to cook.
Stuff you will need/should already own
Saucepan (and steamer if you have one)
Mixing bowl and large spoon
Muffin tray (that makes 12 muffins)
The following ingredients will make twelve large muffins
1x Head of broccoli
1x Large egg or two medium/small eggs
250G Plain flour
150g Grated Cheese
Olive oil (or any other vegatable oil)
Butter (or margarine)
The first thing you’re going to wanna do is get the broccoli cooking so fill up a kettle with cold water and turn it on. While the kettles boiling the watter, chop up your head of broccoli and put it into your steamer, pour the boiling water into a soucepan and start steaming. If you don’t have a steamer just boil the shit out of the broccoli. Leave the broccoli cooking for 5 – 10 minutes. We need it to be soft enough so that we can mash it with a fork.
While the broccoli is cooking put the flour, egg/s, grated cheese, milk, three heaped teaspoons of baking powder and a glug of olive oil (equal to three tablespoons) into your mixing bowl and give it a token stir.
Lube up your muffin tray with butter (or margarine) this will help to stop your muffins sticking to the tray once they’re cooked so be pretty generous otherwise this whole endeavor will be a complete fail. Turn the oven onto gas mark five aka 180c (to start pre heating).
Mixing your ingredients and lubing up your tray shouldn’t have taken more than 5 – 10mins. So now your ready to take your broccoli off the hob (drain it of you boiled it) and put it in/on a seporate bowl/plate/chopping board/work surface and mash it up with a fork. Then add it to the batter already in your mixing bowl and give it a good mix, add some pepper if you’re feeling adventours.
Spoon the batter onto your muffic tray and bung it onto the top shelve of your oven. After 10 – 15 minutes of cooking rotate the tray by 180 degrees to ensure the muffins are evenly cooked. After 20 – 30 minutes, once the top of you muffins are nice and brown then take them out and let them cool. Easy!
