  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 2 cups self-raising flour

  • 2 small to medium zucchinis, grated (squeeze excess liquid from zucchini)

  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced

  • 1 ½ cups grated tasty cheese

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ½ cup milk

  • 3 tbsp butter, softened

  • Prep time: 15 Minutes
  • Cooking time: 30 Minutes
  • Serves: Makes 12 Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 180˚C.
  2. Heat oil in a frypan over medium high heat. Add onions and fry until translucent. Then add the ham and cook until heated through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine flour, zucchini, spring onion, cheese, ham and onion in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add eggs, milk and butter into mixture and stir through until evenly mixed.
  5. Place squares of baking paper over each hole of a standard size muffin tray and spoon in mixture until level with the top of the tray. The muffins won’t rise too much, so you can fill it up.
  6. Bake for 25-30 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    Serve muffins hot or cold according to preference.
    Note: Using baking paper squares makes for a lovely presentation. Alternatively, muffin holes can be greased with butter prior to spooning in mixture.
