  • - 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • - 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • - 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • - 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • - 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • - 1 cup milk
  • - 2 large eggs
  • - 1 1/2 cups grated cheese (such as cheddar, Gouda, or Parmesan)
  • - Optional: chopped fresh herbs (such as chives, parsley, or thyme) for added flavor


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease each cup with butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper until well combined.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs until smooth.

4. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to dense muffins.

5. Fold in the grated cheese and chopped fresh herbs, if using, until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

6. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about three-quarters full.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

9. Serve the Cheese Muffins warm or at room temperature, and enjoy them as a delicious accompaniment to soups, salads, or simply on their own as a savory snack.

With their irresistible cheesy flavor and fluffy texture, homemade Cheese Muffins are sure to become a favorite in your household. Whether enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, or as a satisfying snack, these savory treats are bound to impress. So gather your ingredients, preheat your oven, and get ready to indulge in the deliciousness of freshly baked Cheese Muffins.
