Ingredients
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 level tbsp baking powder
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 2 level tsp dried oregano (or mixed herbs)
  • 175g Extra Mature Cheddar grated
  • 75g sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into pieces
  • 50g pitted black olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 175ml semi-skimmed milk
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease two 6-hole muffin trays or line with paper muffin cases. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and cook the shallot and bacon, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until cooked. Tip into a bowl and set aside.

  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Season with pepper and stir in the sugar, oregano or mixed herbs and most of the Cheddar.

  • Add the tomatoes, olives, bacon and shallots.

  • Lightly beat the eggs, milk and remaining oil and add to the bowl. Stir until just evenly mixed.

  • Transfer to the muffin cases. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and bake for about 25 minutes.
