corn, zucchini & feta savoury muffins

Having no bread in the house and craving carbs, I created these wonderfully tasty savoury muffins out of sheer necessity. They’re quick and easy which is essential when you’ve got a craving!

corn, zucchini & feta muffins


Dry Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups self raising flour (or 1.5 cups plain flour with 1.5tsp baking powder)
  • 1 cup dry instant polenta (cornmeal)
  •  2 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
Wet Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • 0.5 cup grated cheddar
  • 0.5 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 1 birds-eye chilli, diced


In a non-stick pan, fry off zucchini and chilli until just-cooked. Let cool.

In a bowl, whisk eggs and add in all other wet ingredients.
In another large bowl, combine dry ingredients, make a well in the center and add in wet ingredients and cooled zucchini mixture. Take care not to over mix or it will get tough.

ten secrets

day 1 of the the 10 day reveal
  1. I know its not ladylike, but find fart jokes extremely hilarious! 
  2. I sleep on my tummy, without a pillow. 
  3. My favourite game to play is ‘what would we do if we won the lottery’!

  5. I am certain that I can smell my own nose. (my husband finds this super weird & super funny!)

  9. I often act more confident than I feel. 
  10. I often get obsessed with certain noises. Like bubble wrap, nails on a chalkboard and kids metal toy clickers.
