Cheese and spinach muffins

The weekend just gone was all about the savoury muffin. I have been meaning to try the recipe for a long time – it’s one from The Children’s Baking Book (no children in this house, but I rather like the photo step-by-step and the easy instructions! I imagine that if you had children then it would be even better).

Anyway, Saturday breakfast I decided was in need of a savoury muffin, so I made a batch first thing. And they did not disappoint! The recipe was for cheese and courgette muffins, but it said you could replace the courgette with spinach, so as I had some in the fridge, that is what I did. Yummy!

It was a good start to the weekend. My friend Fi who I haven’t seen in yonks came to visit on Saturday, and then The Bert and I had a little shopping jaunt on Sunday. Aunt Letitia (my car) took a turn for the worse on Sunday – she has been in the garage today, so I’m hoping that she’ll be on better form tomorrow. But sadly I think she is on her last legs, so I’m hunting out a new (new-to-me) wagon – nothing flash, but something reliable would be nice.

I hope your week is going well. Apologies for being a bit quiet in blogland recently, I’m looking forward to catching up on everything that has been going on.

PS. I’m trying out the slideshow picture function – what do you think?

Hello! Thanks for visiting, it's lovely to see you! I'm Jones, I'm 31, and I live with my husband (The Bert) and chinchilla (JB) in Gloucestershire.

That and the general chit chat of life. So, take a look around, comment if you'd like, just make yourself feel at home really!

    Well done for mastering the slideshow function. The muffins look good. I must say that I’ve never tried savoury muffins. We have a glut of courgettes here and today I was looking for recipes that contained them. I feel a savoury muffin coming on.
    Love from Mum

    • Ooh yes, do make a savoury muffin – they are delicious! I have also heard that you can make a courgette cake – someone today even told me of a chocolate and courgette cake! Let me know what you end up making!

    These muffins look scrumptious and on a slideshow no less, that’s clever. It’s the weekend again, time goes so quickly.

    HOLY CRAP!!! have you SEEN the price of that book on Amazon??????????
    It’s now sadly staying out of my basket :o(

    • I just can’t believe it’s sooooo expensive! I bought it from the book people, several years ago now, but it was only about £4. It’s a lovely book, but it’s certainly not £30 of lovely! I am in shock!
