Caramelized onion muffins

Although caramelized onion muffins are rather savoury ones they taste sweet thanks to the onion. They are soft, dense a little bit moist and packed with  caramelized onion bits. The best when baked in small muffin cases just for two, three bites. The recipe comes form 'Easy muffins'

Caramelized onions:
  • 3 medium size onions
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Chop the onion finely. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften (about 3 minutes). Then stir in the sugar and the vinegar. Cook for further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove form the heat and set aside to cool.

Ingredients for 12 - 18 muffins:
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 250 ml buttermilk
  • 280g flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 

 Whisk the eggs add the oil and buttermilk and mix them well. 

In separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Pour in the wet ingredients mixture and add the onion mixture reserving 4 teaspoons for topping. Stir gently until combined, do not over - mix.

Spoon the batter into muffin cases about 3/4 full. Sprinkle with remaining onion mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes until well risen. 

Serve warm or cooled down.
Enjoy !
