Serves 12

Nutritional information:





  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Prepare a 12 hole cupcake tin by greasing well with butter. 
  3. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil and blanch the frozen peas for 2 minutes.
  4.  Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  5. Sift the flour, baking powder and dry mustard powder into a large mixing bowl, and add the salt, freshly ground black pepper and mixed herbs or chives.
  6. In a separate bowl lightly beat the egg with an electric whisk and add the boursin cheese, whisking until the cheese has broken up and combined smoothly with the egg. 
  7. Whisk in the milk, and then, using a wooden spoon, stir in the peas and ham.
  8. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix lightly and quickly to combine. Spoon the mixture into the greased cupcake tin and sprinkle the top of each muffin with grated cheddar cheese. 
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the cupcakes are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  10. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm with butter, as a light lunch with a cheese omelette, or as a savoury snack.

These savoury cupcakes are ideal for a lunchbox or picnic.

Makes 12
