Recipe instructions Pear, blue cheese and walnut muffins

1

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (395 degrees F), fan 180 degrees C (355 degrees F). First make the topping. In a bowl, rub together the butter and plain flour until you have a crumbly consistency. Add the grated cheddar and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Mix until combined, then set aside while you make the muffin batter.

2

Line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Break the blue cheese into bite-sized pieces and scatter into the bowl, along with the chopped pear and walnut pieces. Stir to combine. In a jug, whisk together the yogurt, eggs and milk. Pour the mixture in the jug into the dry ingredients and fold in with a large metal spoon until just combined – but don't overwork it.

3

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cases and sprinkle over the topping. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until well risen and golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

For light, airy muffins, be careful not to overmix the batter. Cool muffins on a wire rack, out of the tin, to stop the bottoms becoming soggy.
