Thyme, Onion & Chive Muffins
Joyce Tromp baked these scrumptious muffins for the 2nd Herb Festival at Memorial Park in Upland, California, bringing her a winner’s ribbon. Joyce’s cakes, pastries and desserts are in great demand by everyone who knows her. She should be a chef instead of working behind an engineering computer!
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 TB baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tsp fresh thyme, or ¾ tsp dried thyme
½ cup onion, finely chopped
¼ cup chives, finely chopped
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375°.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt, thyme, onion and chives.
In a separate bowl, mix the butter, egg and milk. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring only until the dry ingredients are moistened. Work quickly and do not overmix.
Spoon the butter into well-oiled or paper lined muffin cups. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Makes about 12 muffins.
