Herbal muffins with black olives

Today savoury muffins. This time herbal ones  with black olives. I think they are great side dish for soups. Although they can be eaten spread with some butter as a snack to go.
The recipe comes from 'New Italian cuisine. Muffins' cookbook.

Ingredients for 8 muffins:
  • 115g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 40g oil
  • 80 ml milk
  • 1 tsp Provence's herbs
  • pinch of saffron
  • 50g pitted and sliced black olives 
Slice the olives and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, herbs and saffron into bowl and whisk them together.
In separate jug whisk together the egg, oil and milk. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients. Mix all ingredients until just combined. Gently fold in the olives.

Spoon the batter into muffin cases up to the top. Bake for 15-17 minutes until well risen and spongy in touch.

Enjoy !
