My version of Vida E Cafe’s Quattro Muffin

on April 10th, 2008

Here is a great recipe to make over the holidays to keep in the freezer, pop in the microwave and have as a breakfast or lunch treat when you are hitting all those holiday sales online. It is so good and good for you, I say make ahead and have them ready for parties too.

When I was in Cape Town I ate a Quattro Muffin daily- it was a 4 cheese muffin with broccoli and onions. I made my version at home and I think my version is healthier and quite delicious. I wanted to share that with you as Vide E Cafe is a destination for coffee – iced choco mochas and great muffins next time you shop in South Africa. So take a little bit of Cape Town home with you by having a muffin at home.

2 cups of yellow cornmeal
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
2 tablespoons of baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 cups of cream
2/3 cup of vegetable oi
2 large eggs
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of feta cheese
1 cup of diced onions
1 cup of diced broccoli- pre cooked in boiling water until soft
1 cup of chives

Mix all together and put into little muffin tins – makes about 36 muffins. Freeze the ones that you don’t want to eat in the next few days and just put in the microwave to warm up when you want to have something savory for lunch with soup or something to go with chili for dinner. ENJOY Shopping and Info’s inspiration of the Quattro Muffin from Vida E Cafe. Our version has no white flour and we added corn meal and a few of our own ingredients.
