Casey’s Muffinishly Delicious Muffins (Pumpkin, Feta and Pine Nuts)

One has to love a bloke who can bake, especially when he’s your son!

Hola mama,
I’m pretty sure everything is about right on this recipe. I made it by feel but I tried to measure stuff, wasn’t entirely successful with the measuring but the muffins are good.

Makes about 12

  • 1 ¾ cups wholemeal SR Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup mixed veg (I used roast pumpkin chopped in small cubes, finely chopped zucchini and some sundried tomatoes)
  • 100 g Feta
  • ¼ cup Pine nuts
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted


1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C .

2. Mix the flour, baking powder and nutmeg in a bowl.

3. Add the veg, feta and pine nuts and mix well.

4. In another bowl combine the egg, milk and butter and mix this well.

5. Add the egg mix to the flour mix all at once. Using a fork, stir and fold the ingredients together only until it is all moist. Do not over mix, this is the main secret of good muffins!

6. Spoon the mixture into muffin tins, filling them about two-thirds full and bake for approximately 20 -25 minutes. They are ready when golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.

7. Place muffins on a wire rack to cool. These are best warm.

    You were supposed to make them and check the recipie, the measurements are a little rough. I emailed a photo to you, there weren’t that many muffins left after 3 shifts worth of ambo’s got access to free food but there’s a photo none the less

    Your boy created this recipe? You must really be one proud mama! My kids have developed some fairly pedantic taste buds (when asked recently if there was anything he didn’t eat, my oldest replied “sumac” :)), but neither of them are the slightest bit interested in cooking.

    Casey’s muffins sound delish, particularly as they’re savoury – I’m not a huge fan of sweet muffins, but give me a cheese and olive one…hmmm…

    I’ve made a version of these and they were delicious, thank you! They’ll be on my blog tomorrow. 🙂
