The recipe for these Cheese Bacon Breakfast Muffins was given to me by my very good friend Jackie Heaton, she is known as The Baking Nanna and honestly what she doesn’t know about baking, probably isn’t worth knowing!

These delicious muffins take under 30 minutes from start to baked. Absolutely perfect for weekend and holiday breakfast baking, or as I did today, make a batch, 5 minutes in the oven to warm through the next morning and breakfast is ready.

How easy is that!!!

I met Jackie through Twitter and she is the embodiment of what the baking community are like. She is a wonderful encourager, shares her recipes, posts pictures of the most delicious cakes and is so much fun to be around.

This morning, when I baked these muffins, within the hour we had people on Twitter baking these delicious breakfast treats. Everyone had a slight variation, others were coming up with ideas for future bakes. It was honestly so much fun. We laughed, smiled, shared and most of all enjoyed the fact that these Cheese Bacon Breakfast Muffins had brought us all together.

If you are on Twitter, have a look at The Baking Nanna – @kuskus1. Her bakes will make your tummy grumble, inspire you and her sense of fun is contagious. All that know her, love her.

I baked these muffins without cases (I couldn’t lay my hands on any white ones – it was early!!!), I was confident a quick spray with Wilton cake release and my British Bakeware muffin pan would be more than up to the non stick job in hand.

By all means use muffin cases, I probably will next time, just as soon as I can find my plain white ones!

As well as eating these warm, for breakfast, they also make a great addition to packed lunches and picnics. The Baking Nanna also puts them on the top of stews and casseroles aren’t they the same thing wrappers removed, in place of dumplings. I absolutely cannot wait to try that!

Recipe: Makes 12 Cheese Bacon Breakfast Muffins

4 Rashers Streaky Bacon – I used unsmoked, but the Baking Nanna recommends smoked

300g/11oz Plain White Flour

1tsp Baking Powder

100g/4oz Sharp Cheddar – grated

2 Large Free Range Eggs

200ml Whole or Semi Skimmed Milk

3tbsp Vegetable Oil

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Method: Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan, gas mark 6

  • Cook the bacon until it is just crispy. I used a skillet on the hob but you can grill or bake the bacon. Place on a plate to cool then chop into pieces.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
  • Add the chopped bacon, grated cheese and pinch of black pepper to the flour and stir through – dry ingredients.
  • In a jug measure the milk. Add the 2 eggs and vegetable oil and stir with a fork to combine – wet ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until everything just comes together.
  • Muffin batter is meant to be lumpy, if you over mix you will have tough muffins.

  1. This is a fantastic recipe Sammie and they look fabulous. I really enjoy these, warm out of the oven or cold filled with cream cheese. They take no making and are a firm favourite in our house. Jackie, @kuskus1 aka “The Baking Nanna” is a wonderful lady. Always willing to help / share advice.

    1. Thanks for your comment Rob, it means a lot as I know you have baked these yourself. Jackie is a wonderful inspiration and always ready to lend advice. We are very fortunate to know her. Sammie.
