His Muffins Infinite Ways is a great example of some of his recipes were he give you a basic recipe and the the adjustments you need to be as creative as you like.
In keeping my month of Irish food posts I decided making a a Smoked Salmon and Cheese Muffin might be good. To the basic recipe I added about 1.5 oz of chopped smoked salmon, two tablespoons of shredded Dubliner cheese and one table spoon of chopped fennel fronds (you can use dill as this is what I had on hand)
I urge you to try Dubliner cheese it's a great sharp Cheddar type cheese.
As it was a savory recipe I reduced the sugar and because I was adding smoked salmon I excluded the salt. So ttake a look at his recipe and suggestions and allow your imagination run wild.
