How to Make the Best Savory Muffin

Coffee plus Food shares their Savory Muffin Recipe with Pumpkin, Spinach, Zucchini, and Cream Cheese.

We stop by Coffee + Food on an almost-daily basis for coffee (flat whites!) and food.  Their savory muffin is to die for.  They recently expanded their space (you can see the old one in the Australia section of the BuzzFeed Pies Around the World Video).  It still feels very much the same – cozy and comfortable.

Despite the change, they still have a lot of the same delicious food and pastries.  When we stop by for our morning coffee, I’m often snapping photos to share on social media.  The brownies, scones, and croissants are all good.

But the best is their Savory Muffin.  I ask for their recipe, and they gave it to me  – 48 muffins, enough to feed the whole coffee shop!  You will want to quarter it for a more manageable batch at home.

    Ooh, might try that – could also be a good lunch/dinner side instead of rolls.
    I love my sweets, but I really don’t enjoy sweet muffins too often – they tend to be super sugary.
