Quick Cheddar Cheese Muffins


This cheddar cheese muffin recipe is really supposed to be a cheddar cheese bread recipe baked in a 9" x 5" bread pan, but I decided to make it in muffin pans, and WOW!! they came out perfect.

I made this years ago when I was just a young lad, and thought it was time to make it again. The only problem was that I couldn't remember how to make this. So I went down to the basement and started digging through old recipes, and after about 20 minutes there it was just where I had left it.

Here is what I used for these Quick Cheese Muffins:

1/3 cup butter (5 tablespoons)
2 - 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (8oz.) shredded cheddar cheese, I used mild you can use sharp if you like
1 - 1/2 cups quick oats or old fashioned
1 - 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs

Here is how I did this: Cheddar Cheese Muffin Recipe

In my KitchenAid mixing bowl, I added the flour, baking powder, butter, and salt. Turned it on low speed until the mixture looked like coarse crumbs.

Then I cut in the cheese, oats, milk, and eggs continuing on low speed until the mixture resembles a sticky batter.

I sprayed the muffin pans with Pam nonstick baking spray and scoped the mixture in with my ice cream scope level to the top.

I preheated the oven to 375 degrees and baked on the center rack for 30 minutes. This recipe yielded me 16 nice cheddar cheese muffins. The original recipe in a bread pan says to bake at 375 degrees for 60 minutes.

 I was really thinking that these were going to stick in the muffin pans but they popped right out with no problems.

You know I had to have the first one while it was hot

Well, I hope you enjoyed, as always thanks for stopping by.
