Savory muffins with asparagus and cheese, French style
  • 20g olive oil
  • 100g whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 200g all-purpose flour (though spelt flour is great for savory cakes)
  • 15g baking powder
  • 100g green asparagus
  • 50g manchego or parmesan cheese
  • 50g pine kernels
  • 100g bacon
  1. First prepare the garnishes: grate the cheese, dice the bacon and microwave it 1-2 minutes, boil or stir-fry the asparagus cut into short pieces (I prefer them fried, I find them much tastier).
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Sieve the flour and baking powder and add to the liquid. Mix very briefly, just until you don't see many flour streaks. [u] Do not overmix so as not to develop much gluten[/ u], otherwise the result will be a heavy cake. I use my Thermomix, but with a very brief mixing, just a few seconds.
  4. The garnishes are added now: the bacon drained from most of its fat, the asparagus also well drained, the pine nuts and the grated cheese. Mix well but slowly.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C (fan).
  6. Fill the paper cups placed in muffin pans up to ¾ of the height. When the oven is hot, put the pans in and bake 20 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a cooling rack. And devour without mercy.
