Cheddar Cheese and Courgette Muffins

If, like me, you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I think you’ll enjoy these savoury beauties 🙂

Cheddar Cheese and Courgette Muffins

I doubled up the recipe and made 24 in normal sized bun cases, I thought that was rather a lot, but they soon dissapeared at work yesterday.

They were, I declared, a triumph!
