  • 120 g cheddar cheese grated
  • 80 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 60 ml sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder

To finish

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC (fan assisted, 210ºC non fan) and line a muffin tin with cases
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, mustard powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir in the grated cheese
  3. In a jug, beat the egg, milk, oil and wholegrain mustard together

  4. Stir the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until just combined - don't overwork it
  5. Spoon a tablespoon of mixture into the muffin cases and spread it out so it completely covers the bottom of the cases
  6. Put a small amount of chutney in the centre of each muffin case - no more than a level teaspoon
  7. Spoon the rest of the mixture in the muffin cases, taking care to try and keep the chutney in the centre
  8. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of each muffin 

  9. Bake in oven for 18 minutes until golden brown and they have a nice crust on top
  10. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before eating - hot chutney burns!
