Recipe Preparation

  1. 1. Chop the onion fine and saute it in a tiny bit of olive oil and keep aside.
  2. 2. In a mixing bowl measure out all the dry ingredients - flours, baking powder, seasonings, salt. Keep aside.
  3. 3. In a glass break the egg, measure out the oil and milk and Del Monte Pizza sauce and mix in the cheese.
  4. 4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix quickly.
  5. 5. In a muffin lined tray, into each case drop one tablespoon of the mix, followed by a tsp of the Del monte tomato basil sauce. Drop another another tsp of the mix to seal the muffins. Top each muffin with mozzarella cheese and sliced olives.
  6. 6. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 C till a skewer comes out clean.

My Tip: Don't overwork the batter, you'll get very dense muffins otherwise.
