  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 160 g mature cheddar
  • 50 g ham slices
  • 175 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 50 ml olive oil + extra for brushing


  • 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. 
  • Grate the cheese, then set aside 40g.
  • Roughly chop the ham and add to the flour along with the remaining 120g of grated cheese. Mix with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and olive oil.
  • Add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until completely combined.
  • Using a cupcake scoop or large spoon, divide the mixture between the 10 oiled muffin tin moulds. Top each muffin with the remaining grated cheese.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes in the preheated oven until cooked through and golden brown.
  • Serve warm, or cool completely on a wire rack ready to pack in lunch boxes.


These muffins can be frozen for 2-3 months – when freezing, be sure to wrap them well to prevent freezer burn.
