  • 150g Unearthed Olives with Chilli
  • 150g Manchego cheese, cut into 1cm cubes
  • ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley
  • 110g pack Principe Prosciutto Cotto, cut into 1cm ribbons
  • 150g Greek yogurt
  • 150ml whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp nonpareille capers, drained and chopped
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder


  1. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Set 6 olives, 12 cheese cubes, 12 parsley leaves and 12 prosciutto ribbons aside. Chop the remaining olives and parsley.

  2. Use a fork to combine the yogurt, milk, eggs, capers and black pepper in a jug. Put the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the yogurt mixture and quickly start to combine with a spatula or large spoon. When half-mixed, add the remaining olives, cheese, prosciutto and parsley, swiftly folding through to combine evenly. Take care not to overmix or the muffins will become tough.

  3. Divide between the muffin cases and top each with a parsley leaf, cheese cube, olive half and prosciutto ribbon. Bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 miutes, until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack to cool a little. Enjoy warm or cool.
