  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 cup cheese grated
  • 2 medium zucchinis use 1 and 1/2 if they're really large zucchinis, grated and excess liquid drained off
  • 125 g shaved ham cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • sea salt and pepper to season


  • Grease and line a standard 12 hole muffin tin with muffin cases.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees (160 degrees if using fan forced).
  • Whisk together the buttermilk, oil and eggs in a bowl and set aside.
  • Sift the self raising flour into a large bowl.
  • Add the grated cheese, ham, grated zucchini, sea salt and pepper.
  • Mix to combine.
  • Pour the buttermilk mixture over the top of the flour mix and stir gently.
  • Mix until only just combined (over-mixing will lead to tough muffins!).
  • Divide the mixture equally between the muffin cases.
  • Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through (test with a skewer).
  • Leave the muffins in the pan to cool slightly, before placing onto a wire rack to cool completely.
