Cheesy Zucchini and Roasted Capsicum Muffin

Cheesy Zucchini and Roasted Capsicum Muffins

Last Thursday, I came home and saw these goodies.  I initially thought it was a sweet treat but after having a bite I was surprised it was savoury.  If I knew before hand that it was not sweet I might not try it as I don’t like savoury muffins but I guess I was thankful that I had tried it as I will not know that it will taste really good, I guess it’s the cheese and roasted capsicum combination.  So since then this was my breakfast for the next 3 days, I really enjoyed it especially with a melting butter.


2 cups self-raising flour
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 red capsicum, roasted and finely chopped
3 tbsp chives, chopped
100g tasty cheese, grated
25g parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup cream
2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. In a large bowl sift flour and sugar together.
  3. Now add zucchini, cheese, capsicum and chives then mix well
  4. Now make a well in the centre of the mixture then and add eggs, cream and oil.  Combine everything in the middle and make sure it’s mixed evenly.
  5. Place muffin cups into a muffin tray then place a scoopful of the mixture on each cup.
  6. Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.

    I have a larger vegetable quiche recipe with a very very similar ingredient list, (more egg, less flour) so I know that these would taste great… I’ve never tried mine as muffins though.. now THAT”s a yummy thought!

  4. I had to Google capsicum…these look so soft and yummy. I would love to have one for breakfast each morning. Lucky you.

    Mmm, sounds like it would be really good with a bowl of soup or even converted into a cornbread…and of course, needs butter.

  6. Omg…LOVE this recipe. I have to try it!
