Equipment

  • muffin pan

Ingredients
  

Dry mixture:

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon freeze-dried chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Wet mixture:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons cooled melted butter
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients, tossing cheese to thoroughly coat with flour.
  • Separately, mix wet ingredients then combine with the flour mix to create a batter, being careful not to over mix.
  • Scoop batter into a muffin pan sprayed with Baker's Release spray, not filling cavities more than 2/3 full.
  • Sprinkle tops with a pinch of the extra cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin, can be removed without wet batter clinging to it.
  • Cool in the pan ten minutes, then turn out the muffins and finish cooling them on a wire rack.
