Sundried Tomato, Feta and Basil Muffins

It's been a long time since I've posted anything of substance, three months in fact! I wish that I could say I've accomplished lots in that time, and have been able to finish all of those little projects that are piling up on my to-do list. I wish, but I can't.

And just when I hoped that things might quieten down, the Olympics have started!

Thankfully, these muffins are such a breeze to whip up, I'll have no trouble making a batch while I cheer on the Aussies!

Sundried Tomato, Feta and Basil Muffins
Adapted from Domestic Sluttery

400g plain flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
pinch salt
black pepper
3 eggs
120g feta, chopped
150g sundried tomatoes, chopped
bunch basil (approx 25g), roughly chopped

Preheat your oven to 200°C.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, feta and basil to the flour mixture and stir through.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until they are just combined.
Divide the mixture into prepared muffin tins and bake for approximately 20 minutes.

I think these muffins are best enjoyed warm - so get into them as soon as they've cooled down a little!
