Savory muffins

 

 Tsoureki

  • 100 GRAM BUTTER, soft
  • 3 EGGS
  • 250 GRAM SELF RAISING FLOUR
  • 1 CUP YOGURT
  • 75 GRAM BACON, cut
  • 50 GRAM CHEESE, grated
 
  • 500 GRAM FLOUR
  • 1 CUP MILK
  • 1 TBSP YEAST
  • 1/2 CUP SUGAR
  • 1 1/2 TSP SALT
  • 5 EGGS
  • 1 ORANGE, juice and rind
  • 1/2 TSP ANISEED
  • 50 GRAM WALNUTS, chopped
  • 1 TBSP VANILLA SUGAR

Fry the bacon pieces 5 minutes. Beat the eggs 2 minutes with the yogurt. Stir in the other ingredients. Pour the mixture into muffin molds and bake the muffins 25 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
Combine with fish and spinach for a lovely main course. Get inspiration for baking different muffins from the muffin page.

This picture shows what happens if the children of World Cook follow in their mother's footsteps. They start cooking independently and put something in the oven. Of course the first trial does not turn out exactly as they like it, and they put it back under the grill, only forget to switch it back to oven. Their mother, who does not use the grill often, does not check and thus, the muffins are prepared under the grill and instead of nicely rising, they show large bumps on their backs, as if they are struck by a terrible disease. Luckily, the taste was not affected.

Boil two eggs and color them. Mix the rest of the ingredients well and knead the dough ten minutes. Allow it to rise one hour, divide in three pieces and roll the pieces out to long thin strips. Braid these to a long braid and close the braid to a circle. Decorate with the colored eggs. Let the bread rise one hour And then bake it half an hour at 200 degrees Celsius.

Tsoureki in Greek means "braided bread". Traditionally, the eggs should be painted with scarlet color, representing the blood of Christ. I tried red dye in a double portion but still the eggs only looked faintly orange.
