Know Your Food Blogger : Archita and her Savoury Cheese Muffins

    This is my 270th post and a very special post..It's again the time when I introduce another member from our food blogger group, "Kolkata Food Bloggers". It's Archita Chanda Ray, architect behind "My Food My Life". As the blog name depicts, her life right now revolves around her hobby, cooking & blogging other than taking care of her family and business. She blogs regularly and shares her experiments as well as traditional recipes in her blog. When I first met her, her sweet, charming nature and down-to-earth attitude had totally amazed me and we got connected instantly. She is one of the punctual and sincere blogger of our group and always inspires us too. Visit her blog and her simple but attractive recipes as well as photography will appeal you for sure.
       As per the event rule, we are following or recreating one of her recipes. It was hard for me to settle down with one of her recipes. I bookmarked a lot of recipes, but for now I've decided to create her Savoury Cheese muffin recipe and it was melt-in-the mouth and an awesome snack with tea. First time I've baked a savoury muffin, so followed her whole recipe. Here is her original recipe...

 Savoury Cheese Muffin

Flour - 1 cup  
Butter - 1/3 cup ( melted)  
Eggs - 1 (lightly beaten)
Milk - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp  
Sugar - 2 tbsp(powdered)  
Salt - 1 tsp  
Cheddar cheese - 1/2 cup ( cut into small squares)  
Black Pepper - 1 tsp( optional)  
Dried Thyme/oregano/basil/parsley - 1 tsp

How To :
  • Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Grease and prepare a muffin pan.
  • In a bowl sift and mix all the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, black pepper.
  • In another bowl mix the milk, beaten eggs, melted butter and thyme/oregano and whisk them together.
  • Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  • Place a heaped spoon of the mixture in to the muffin cups, sprinkle some cheese cubes  then drop another spoon of the batter on top.
