Author: Grace Hall


  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 spring onions
  • ½ red pepper
  • 2 tbps sweetcorn
  • 100 g mature cheddar
  • 175 ml milk or dairy free alternative
  • 1 large egg
  • 50 ml olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6/400°F). Lightly brush 10 moulds of a 12 hole muffin tin with a little oil.
  • Measure out and sift the flour into a large mixing bowl.
  • Prepare the vegetables – grate the carrot, finely chop the spring onion, de-seed and finely chop the red pepper. Add the prepared vegetables and the sweetcorn to the flour. Grate the cheddar cheese, add it to the bowl and stir until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, egg and olive oil. Add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until completely combined. Divide the mixture between the 10 oiled muffin tin moulds.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes in the preheated oven until cooked through and golden brown.


Notes: Serve warm, or cool completely on a wire rack ready to pack in an air-tight box for your picnic.
