Cheddar Cheese Muffins


1 cup milk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & then cooled

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 pinch cayenne pepper

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese


Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the muffins in a large bowl, combine milk, melted butter, egg and cayenne, set aside. In a 


 bowl, sift together dry ingredients--flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, stir in cheese. Add flour mixture (dry ingredients) to wet mixture and stir until batter is combined (do not over mix!). 

The batter should look thick. Spoon batter into a lined or buttered muffin pan, filling each about 2/3 full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature. I found that apricot jelly taste wonderful on these and any additional goodies could be added {green onions, ham, turkey, etc}
