Dried Blueberry and Grated Cheese Muffins


I wanted to do something  and looked for a cheese muffin recipe on the web.These are pretty easy to do but it was messy. Be prepared to get your fingers dirty!
The original recipe comes from nigella.com.

I have did some slight changes. 

Ingredients
2 cups of plain flour n 1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon salt ( original 1 teaspoon)
2 teaspoons of double acting baking powder ( original 3 teaspoon baking powder)
200 gm Planta margarine (8oz margarine)
1 cup cheese - I interpret as grated cheese

Wet ingredients at room temperature
1 cup milk 
2 eggs

Topping
Some grated cheese
Handful of blueberries - my addition
Original used some paprika



Method
Mix the flour n baking powder n 1/8 teaspoon salt together 
Rub in the margarine into the flour - will be messy!
Add in the cheese n stir with spatula

Beat 2 eggs in another bowl.
Add in milk n stir. 
Pour the milk mix into the flour n mix in with spatula.
At this point I sprinkled about one more tablespoon flour as the mixture was very wet.
Preheat oven to 190 deg celcius - original is 200.
Spoon into prepared muffin trays.
I lined with paper cups.
Add more grated cheese n put some blueberries.
Bake for about 15 mins
I turned my trays n lowered temp to 170 for another 10 mins.
You can test doneness by sticking a toothpick in. It should be dry when pull out.
Let them rest in tray 2 mins.
Remove n cool in racks. 
Sprinkle a little caster sugar on them before serving.
