  • Meatless
  • (5 stars/1 votes)


Serves 4

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sodium carbonate
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • ½ cup Le Gruyère AOP Classic, grated or diced
  • 3 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon pili pili powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup melted butter + 1 teaspoon butter
  • pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 420° F. Sieve the flour with salt, baking powder and the sodium carbonate. Add the grated nutmeg, Le Gruyère AOP, chives, the pili-pili powder and the pepper. Mix everything well. Put aside.
  2. Mix the milk, eggs and melted butter in a bowl.
  3. Slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix quickly. The dough needs to stay crumbly so that the muffins are nice and airy.
  4. Pour the batter into the buttered muffin tins.
  5. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes. Then lower temperature to 390° F for another 10 minutes.
  6. Serve hot or warm.
Preparation hint

Add ham or bacon, diced into small cubes.


This goes well with Kamairicha tea, a green tea from Japan. Or a Nilgiri Coonoor tea - black tea from India.
