The muffins are small cakes coming from Wales. They are widespread in Anglo-Saxon countries, mainly in the United States. The principle for a successful muffins, is to prepare the mixture of ingredients of dry products on the one hand and the mixing of liquid products on the other. Then mixed the two preparations quickly and coarsely using a wooden spatula without fear of leaving lumps. The muffins are traditionally sweet but I decided today to make you a salty version you can decline with the ingredients of your choice while keeping the basic ingredients mentioned by *.

These savory muffins are not to be confused with the English muffins, which are kind of round bread that are cut in half to spread with butter and jam. They are also used as a basis for preparing the « Eggs Benedict ». I  promise you the English muffins recipe in a future post!

My recipe comes from Australia, the doses are in cup. I usually make this recipe with my cups, so I prefer to keep it as is but be aware that 1cup = 240ml, 1cup of flour = 130 g, 1cup of sugar = 240g … You will understand that conversions are not always obvious!
