Crusty Cheese Muffins

Crusty Cheese Muffins


My first time out baking in the New Year and ahhh….these did not turn out as well as I would have liked!   I joined in again for Muffin Monday, as the last muffins that I made a few months back with Baker Street  were delicious, wish I could say the same for these 🙂 The original recipe was printed in the Women’s Weekly and I am sure it is a great one, all of their recipes are delightful–I have a collection of these books that I was able to get while I was in the UK and they are also sold in Canada.  I have also purchased them online here Australian Women’s Weekly.  The photos are fabulous and their recipes are triple tested and usually come out perfectly.  I even purchased a set of Aussie measuring cups (as their cups measure slightly different to American cups), perhaps I should have used those too!  I MODIFIED the original recipe as that is the fun of participating in the blog hop–hummmm…. I think I should have left well enough alone! The original recipe can be found on Baker Streets Blog link below.  Here is my rendition:



Muffin Monday is an initiative by Baker Street.  A culinary journey of sharing a wickedly delicious muffin recipe every week. Drop in a quick line to join her on her journey to make the world smile and beat glum Monday mornings week after week.

  3. Jayne, why don’t you join the Muffin Monday? I am not able to participate as often as I would like, but it is a nice group and the gal that started it is over in the UK with you 🙂 Thanks for your lovely comments as always. XO
