Sun dried tomato-potato-olives-basil aka Pizza muffins!!
recipe from the Muffin Bible by Penguin books..(It's a fantastic resource!! Love it!! Thank you Dr Carole!!)
ingredients: 3 cups peeled and grated potatoes 1 clove garlic, minced 8 sun-dried tomato, finely chopped 3 tbs olive oil 1/2 cup flour 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp baking powder 2 egg yolks 2 egg whites, beaten to a soft snow
method: 1. Rinse and drain potatoes 2. mix all ingredients except egg whites (mix all dry ingredients first; then wet. Secret to making light and fluffy muffins to MINIMISE mixing. Mix til just combined. My muffins just to turn out like very dense rocks cos i like to stir my food...haa..) 3. fold in egg whites 4. spoon into greased muffin pas 5. bake at 200 degress for 20 -25 mins
modifications: we added olives, basil leaves and sweet thai chilli....just cos we had them n tot that they'd taste good together.....made another batch sometime back with spinach and pinenuts which turned out really well too..
Comments: Qin says the muffins taste like pizzas...hmm...i dun really think so...but i like them...they've got a peculiar meaty flavour.. :) Bon appetit!
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
