Feta, Semi Sundried Tomatoes Muffin

March 18, 2011

Mr H Jr and Miss E have subtly hinting that they had enough of me packing them bread/ sandwiches for school lunches.  
Starting early this year... I noticed that their lunch boxes would arrived home with the same content... as when I sent them off to school in the morning ...if it is sandwiches.
When asked, both would gave some excuses like :
I have no time, I wasn't hungry or the real classic is ~ I forgot to eat!!... 

My 'Hungry' teens... forgot to eat!! It is not so like them, because whenever they are home ~ I could hear them opening or closing the doors to the pantry or fridge ~ ransacking, rummaging and snacking all the time   ... when they gave an excuse... like 'I forgot to eat' ... I should take heed... and get off my butt... and start planning!

Its been awhile since I bake ....One of the reasons is this...

Its been so hot .... even Lake Yellagonga has almost dried up

Recipe (makes about 8 muffins)
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self raising flour
100 g semi sundried tomatoes -thinly sliced
100 g reduced fat Feta -crumbled
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup of milk
1 egg
salt and pepper
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  3. Spoon into muffin papers.
  4. Bake at 200C for 20 minutes or skewer comes out clean


  1. Mr H Jr and Miss E are lovely. Instead of putting the blame on the sandwiches, they too take it as their responsibilities : )!
    Now I guess they have already finished this lovely muffins, right?

  2. wow Lisa, I love those savoury muffins! They look fabulous. Great photos too.

  3. I love the combination of sun-dried tomatoes and feta! I agree though, I can't bring myself to bake when it's hot. Luckily, it's never that hot for more than a day or 2 in SF!

  4. These look amazing! I'd probably spread some goat cheese on top and call them cupcakes :)

    I wonder how do you fold the muffin wrapper so nicely out of baking paper?
