Courgette and Cheese Muffins

Courgette and cheese muffins are really quick and easy to make, and great to make with kids. They are perfect for taking on a picnic and they make a great savoury snack for children. You can also have them for lunch with a little salad.

These muffins sound really scrummy! I'd love to make them. In our country they don't sell self raising flour. Have you any idea how much baking powder to use if I use normal flour? (we do have wholemeal flour, but again, its not self raising). Thanks

To make self-raising flour mix 100g plain flour with 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Nicholas and I had a great time making these, Filipa! We added some grated parmesan over the top (you can never have too much cheese!). Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Our efforts:

Hi Anne! I'm so delighted to hear that you baked these with your son! I love the parmasan cheese topping idea - I will use that in the future! Thanks for trying the recipe, blogging about it and for your lovely comment! Filipa xx
