Blue cheese muffins and warm butternut soup!

We are so fortunate to live in this climate...almost the middle of winter and we are being spoilt with these sunsets.

I have been spoilt for Mother's Day with a SMEG today I tried out the oven and really was impressed.

Here are my blue cheese muffins I made....delicious with ripe fig jam..

2 cups of AP flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tablesp Sugar
4 Tablesp melted marg or butter
250ml Milk
1 egg
pinch of salt 1/2 cup of crumbled blue cheese and 1/2 cup of strong cheddar
Combine all the dry ingredients and sift.
Melt the butter
Add to the wet ingredients
Mix together and bake for 10 to 15 mins in an oven at 220deg C

The  little bunny is from a local artist in Cape Town....I could not resist him as we have these hares on the golf course....I have often woken to one sitting at my front door and the reflection in the sandblasted glass of his long ears reminded me so of this beautiful little carving!

The weather is perfect for fire and soup at the moment and butternut soup is truly my favourite with a dash of heat in it and a touch of creme fraishe

Have a wonderful weekend!
