Vegetable and Feta Muffins 疏菜奶酪满芬

This is my first time making savory muffins, it is actually a great snack for my kid lunchbox! It is easy and fast to make because it doesn't require the electric mixer ^^ The original recipe asked to use a type of vegetable called Swiss chard which I don't have. I replaced it with whatever vegetable I have in my fridge. The taste of this savory muffin is so delicious with feta and Parmesan cheese in it! 

When I watched my son eating the vegetable muffins I laughed loud inside my heart until the moment he asked me "what is the green things mummy?", it was already the third one! I told him "vegetable!"

Note to make a lovely muffin:
Don't over mix the batter!

Recipe from Mastering the Art of Baking by Anneka Manning
(yield 12 muffins)

9 oz frozen Swiss chard, thawed (used fresh spinach, finely chopped)
2 1/4 cups self rising flour
7 oz feta cheese, crumbled
1 1/4 cups finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup milk
2 eggs, at room temperature
4 1/2 oz butter, melted and cooled
some freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 200C. You can lined the muffin holes or lightly brush 12 cup of muffin holes with oil/ butter.
2. Sift flour into a bowl and season with freshly ground black pepper. Stir in half of the feta and Parmesan respectively then make a well in the center.
3. Whisk the milk and eggs together in a pitcher, then pour into the well. Add melted butter. Use a spatula, gently fold the mixture together until just combined but not smooth. Stir in the chopped spinach. (The batter should be a little lumpy)
4. Fill the muffin hole 3/4 full. Mix together the remaining cheeses and sprinkle on top of each muffin. Bake for 25 mins or until golden brown. Serve the muffins warm.
