"zhng-ed" recipe

just 2 days to the "big" event.

the other day mummyji was telling a friend what she'll wear... a simple black dress which will be "retro-ized" to suit the theme, and the young friend said, "oh, you gonna zhng your dress!"

not quite a word in mummyji's usual vocabulary, but then again, this is Singapore, and what the heck, it's a rather apt description actually.

anyway, got to thinking how very typical of mummyji that was... in the kitchen, always "zhnging" recipes.

this one here is today's breakfast, a cheese & onion muffin, modified from a plain cheese muffin recipe.

And it's here for the record, so mummyji doesn't forget and can reproduce it again.

2 shallots, chopped

1.5cup organic plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp Herb de Provence

1 tsp fine sea salt

2 eggs

50g unsalted butter, melted

0.5 cup milk

1 tsp dijon mustard

About 50g or more of english vintage cheddar, chopped into small bits.

The flour and baking powder were sifted, and mixed with the rest of the dry ingredients.

Butter, eggs, milk and mustard were stirred together till well mixed, then added to the flour mix, and folded in till just combined.

Place a heaped spoon of the mix into each muffin cup, then drop some cheese chunks and bits on it, and then cover with another spoonful of mix. Sprinkle leftover cheese bits liberally over the muffin tops and bake at 180 deg C for 30minutes, till the cheese on the top is a lovely golden brown.

Smells great... in fact, according to the babes, smells like freshly made pizza.

so for the next batch, mummyji's probably gonna stir in a spoon or 2 of tomato paste.... that'll really be more like pizza!
