  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two 12-hole muffin tins with 15 cases.
  • Heat 1½ tbsp vegetable oil in a frying pan, add the onion and carrot and fry over a medium heat until the onion starts to become transparent. Add the garlic and red pepper and continue cooking for a further minute, then add the remaining vegetables and cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, combine the flour, salt, pepper and baking powder, and make a well in the centre.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and pour in the milk and oil. Add the eggs and stir in.
  • Add the butter mixture and mixed vegetables to the flour mixture. Stir until all the ingredients come together.
  • Spoon the batter into muffin cases, to about two-thirds full, and top with cheese. Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden.
  • Makes 15
