Too Much Cheddar and Jalapeño Muffins

I’m not a huge sweets person, but I love muffins. Every morning, it’s a breakfast dilemma between my taste buds and my heart.

Then one day, I came across these beauties from Joy the Baker (my one stop for everything yummy in this world): Too Much Cheddar and Jalapeño Muffins. For this particular batch, I used a mix of Pepper Jack, havarti and Vermont Cheddar cheese. I didn’t actually think this recipe could get better, but I was so, so wrong.

The only technical skill needed for this beautiful recipe sent from heaven? The ability to use a spoon. That’s right, y’all. Jalapeño Cheddar muffins comin’ right up.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 12

Adapted from Joy the Baker

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons diced pickled jalapeño
12 pickled jalapeño rounds for topping
Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for topping

Directions:

1. Grease a 12-muffin pan and preheat oven to 375°F. The muffins will come off easily from the pan without liners.
2. If cheese is not yet shredded, use a grater or cut cheese into thin slices.
