I have 5 lunch boxes to bake for and I am constantly on the look out for new recipes or developing my own. This is a moist savoury muffin, with plenty of "good bits" as my children say. These can be individually wrapped and frozen for up to 4 weeks is not enjoyed within 2 days.

  • ·
    2 1/2 cup flour
  • ·
    1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ·
    1 cup chopped ham (diced small-ish)
  • ·
    1/2 cup grated cheese (i like tasty)
  • ·
    1 tablespoon super fine (caster) sugar
  • ·
    2 teaspoons italian herb mix
  • ·
    1 1/4 cup milk

How to Make Betty's Cheesy Ham & Pineapple Muffins


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375oF/180oC and line a 12 muffin tray with liners.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together in to a large bowl. Add the ham, cheese, herbs and sugar and stir to mix. Make a well in the centre.
  3. In a jug, combine the milk, eggs and melted butter. Whisk with a fork. Pour into the "well" and fold through with the well drained crushed pineapple.
  4. Fold though gently until JUST incorporated but still lumpy (no flour visible but not smooth). Carefully drop spoonfuls of batter into the muffin cases so they are just over 1/2 filled.
  5. Pop the tray in the pre heated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked (they should be golden and firm to the touch when pressed with your finger)
  6. Cool in the tray for 10 minutes, remove and cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
