  • 200 g broccoli chopped into florets and steamed until soft
  • 360 ml natural yoghurt
  • 100 g cheddar cheese grated
  • 80 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 225 g self-raising flour


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C(fan)/220°C/gas mark 7.
  2. Place 12 large muffin cases in a muffin tin (or you could make 24 small muffins)

  3. Put the yoghurt, oil and egg into a bowl and mix well. Add the broccoli and the cheese and blend. I blended this so that there were no lumps of broccoli left but you could leave it lumpier if you wish.
  4. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly pour in the liquid mixture and fold together with a metal spoon. If your mixture looks on the dry side add a little milk to loosen it.
  5. Spoon the mixture into your muffin cases and bake for 12/15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in the tin for a few minutes before tipping out.
  6. Can be frozen.
