  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tbsp Sugar granulated
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 cup Irish Cheddar shredded


  • Preheat oven to 375 F and grease a muffin tin, set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl sift together your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and sugar). 
  • In stand mixer (or using hand mixer) mix together wet ingredients until fully combined. It may look a little lumpy and that's okay! 
  • Add dry mixture to your wet mixture along with cheese and stir until just combined. 
  • Using a cookie scoop add the batter to your muffin tin, make sure you fill them evenly. Gently push the batter down with the back of the scoop. 
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool 5 minutes and then enjoy! 


If you don't have buttermilk don't worry!! Simply use 1 cup regular milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice. Add the lemon juice to the milk and allow to sit for 5 minutes before stirring. Then use as you would the buttermilk.
