Right now I’m busy prepping for my first cookery class @ La Cocotte this Thursday. I’ve been busy researching, testing, tasting, doing all things muffiny…so much so I think I’m actually becoming a muffin. I found out the word muffin comes from the old french term “moufflet” (=soft). And that the American muffins did originate from the English ones but quickly developed their own style.

The polenta, feta & sundried tomato muffins are ones I’ll be putting in the goody bag which everyone at the cookery class gets to take home (with a few sweets ones too). I’ll let you know how it goes.

Wish me luck!

Btw I tend to use a mini muffin tin because the size is great for snacks or dinner party canap

    These are scrummy! I ran out of flour at 200g but they are still yum. I went over a bit with the cheese too, but it’s made them even better. I’ll definitely make them again!

    While “mouflet” means kid, “moufflet” with two “f” is (or was, the word isn’t used nowadays) a kind of stuffed wool hat, that’s soft and looks + or – like a muffin… there comes the name from :)

  3. Good luck, sweetie!
    I have never made savory muffins and these look so delish!

    Amanda – Thanks. I”ll definetly let you know how it goes. A bit worried having to do it all in French.
    Mari – Yeah, they are yum. Really easy recipe to make for dinner party snacks. And you could easily freeze it too!
    Clotilde – Trop mignon! “Mouflet” I’m going to have to use that term for the kids I look after. Merci beaucoup.

    “Un mouflet” is also an affectionate term for “child”…
    Have fun with the class!
