These easy-to-make savoury muffins are ready in a jiffy – enjoy them as is or with butter.
1 Preheat the oven 180°C. Mix the flour with the baby marrows, bacon and feta. Beat the oil, buttermilk and egg together in a separate bowl. Fold this into the flour mixture until just combined. A few lumps are better than an overworked batter.
2 Spray the 12 cavities of a standard muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and divide the batter so that each cavity is two-thirds full. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds over and bake until golden-brown and cooked through (about 20 minutes). Cool on a wire rack.
