  • courgette 1 small (125g grated weight)
  • self-raising flour 175g
  • cheddar 125g, grated
  • egg 1, beaten
  • sunflower oil 60ml
  • milk


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and line eight holes of a muffin tin with muffin cases. Coarsely grate the courgette and use clean hands to squeeze out as much liquid as possible over the sink. Tip into a bowl with the flour and most of the cheese.

  • Step 2

    Crack the egg into a jug, pour in the oil, then top up with enough milk to make 250ml. Pour into the courgette bowl and mix to a smooth batter. Divide between the cases, top with the remaining cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen, firm and golden brown on top.
