Red pepper and goat cheese muffins

This post is based on a NaBloPoMo prompt: Tell us about a recipe you learned to make from the Internet.

Today I want to share my – and probably my partner’s – favourite recipe: red pepper and goat cheese muffins. I found this recipe a few years ago on the culinary blog of a high school friend and have since made it my own. Truth be told, if red peppers weren’t so expensive and these muffins didn’t take me an hour to make, I would make them every week and probably would have come up with a few variations by now!


For this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 red pepper
  • 100g goat cheese (you can also use feta)
  • 100g flour (any kind)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 cL soy milk

Also add one or all of the following (try a small quantity the first time):

  • salt
  • cumin powder
  • curry powder

The following ingredients are optional:

  • grated cheese
  • hazelnuts


  • 1 knife
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 measuring cup
  • 1 salad bowl
  • 6 muffin moulds


In the salad bowl:

  1. Chop the red pepper and goat cheese.
  2. Add the egg, olive oil, soy milk, and grated cheese.
  3. Stir them all together.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and/or cumin powder and/or curry powder.
  5. Stir them all together again!
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  7. Divide the batter in the muffin moulds while adding hazelnuts (I put 3 on top of each muffin).
  8. You can also add grated cheese on top of the muffins.
  9. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.
  10. Serve with salad or a light side dish.

Two or three muffins per person are usually enough as the muffins are quite dense. I will make sure to take a photo and add it to this post the next time I bake them!
