Cheddar & Chorizo Muffin Made Easy with Judge Mixer

Cheddar & Chorizo Muffin
Watching the latest episode of Great British Bake Off and hearing one of the contestants exclaiming, "I can't believe I have tried to mix this by hand", the penny dropped. I couldn't believe I had been so silly to confuse a hand blender with a hand mixer.

A stick blender also called a magic wand, is used mostly for soups whereas a hand mixer is perfect for kneading dough, whisking meringue and cake mix. The added advantage of the Judge Twin Blade Mixer over many others is,  that, if like me you have a small kitchen, this one takes up very little space.

The Judge Hand and Stand Mixer has another huge advantage – that is the price. At under £50 (you may find it for less), it's a really good buy. It may not look as snazzy as its expensive counterparts but with a 300 Watt motor, 5 speeds and a turbo it does the job really well and takes the hard work out of mixing cakes and kneading dough.

I like the fact that it has a bowl and a stand.The stand is handy when you need to multitask, you can leave the mixer running while you carry on weighing etc. and, with an acute lack of space, the bowl has come handy for storage, the hooks and the whisks live in it, even the magic wand has now joined them!

Cheddar 'n Chorizo Muffin Recipe


  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 80g butter, diced
  • 100g chorizo, diced
  • 200g mature cheddar, coarsely grated
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml milk
As with all muffin recipe, you need to combine the dry and the wet ingredients separately.

First,  preheat the oven 190C and line your tray with cases.
The etiquette has it that muffins are baked without cases as cupcakes are but blow that, it's much neater to use paper cases, it saves you scrubbing the tray.

1- In a bowl mix the flow, the paprika and rub in the butter
2- Mix the egg, milk and cheddar in the bowl with the mixer
3- and 1 to 2
4- spoon the mixture in the cases
5- bake for 20 minutes

you could replace the chorizo with ham for a breakfast bake.
