Cheddar Mmmuffins

Yields10 Servings

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1/4 cup sugar
 1/2-1 packet mac & cheese seasoning mix (or about 3 Tbsp—optional)
 1 tsp baking soda
 1/2 tsp garlic powder
 1/2 tsp salt
 1 cup grated aged cheddar or Gouda, plus extra for sprinkling on top
 1 1/2 cups buttermilk or thinned sour cream or yogurt (not low fat!)
 1/3 cup melted butter or canola or other vegetable oil (or a combo)
 1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 350F.


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, powdered cheese mix, baking soda and salt. Add the grated cheese and toss to combine. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter or oil and egg. Add to the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula just until combined.


Divide the batter between greased or paper-lined muffin tins, filling them to heaping. (If you want larger tops that spread into each other, skip the paper liners and just spray the pan instead.)


Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden, domed and springy to the touch. Makes about 8-10 mmmuffins.
