Ingredients (12 muffins)

  • 12 pieces broccoli
  • 280 gr/ 9 oz butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 300 gr/ 10 oz flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 60 gr/ 2 oz gruyere cheese
Start by cutting the 12 pieces from a larger broccoli stem, wash and pour in boiling water for 2 - 3 minutes.
Remove from the water and allow to cool.
Prepare the muffin trays spreading butter on them and sprinkling with flour.
In mixer bowl add the butter, which is at room temperature rather than cold and beat with sugar until fluffy.
Add the eggs one by one. Wait for the previous egg to be integrated before adding the next one.
Sieve the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, turmeric, paprika, pepper, salt) over the bowl, and mix with a spoon.
Grate the gruyere in the coarse grater, and add to the mix.
Put a spoonful of the mixture in every tray, set the broccoli piece upright in the tray and fill from the side until the broccoli piece is covered. Use a large spoon and a small one to assist, because the mixture is quite thick and does not flow easily.
Over each tray add a little more cheese.
Bake in preheated oven at 180°C/350°F in the bottom rack for 30 - 35 minutes.
If you like broccoli this proposal will surely excite you.
If you plan to serve them on a buffet or a formal table, I would propose to cut them in half. They have a very impressive display and your guests will wonder how you made them.
