5 : Blue cheese, pear and walnut

Although I’m not a fan of blue cheese this seems like a good flavour combination and there is one fan in this household. The pear was a bit over ripe which resulted in the muffin being a little soggy and there were a few too many walnuts on the top.

Blue cheese, pear and walnut muffin


  • 300g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 85g butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 100g blue cheese
  • 1 pear, cored and chopped
  • 50g walnuts

Heat the oven to 200C. Chop the cheese, pear and walnuts into small pieces.  Mix the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry then fold in the cheese and pears. Spoon the mixture into cases, top with chopped walnuts and bake for 16 minutes until golden and firm.
