Basil & Cheese Muffins

200g your favourite cheese (mozzarella or gouda will work)
1/2 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic
10 leaves fresh basil, finely chopped (mine are super large!)
10 leaves fresh marjoram, finely minced
50g butter + 2 tbsp oil (I only had 50g of butter so you can substitute oil with additional butter)
3/4 c buttermilk
1 egg
1 1/2 C AP flour
pinch of cinnamon
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

1.  Saute your onions until fragrant. Add garlic. Mix it with grated cheese, chopped basil and marjoram and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and oil. Add egg and beat well. Add in the buttermilk. Set aside.
3. In another bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, coriander, salt and soda.
4. Start adding flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix well. Fold in the cheese mixture (leave some for sprinkling the tops). 
5. Divide the mixture among 12 muffin cups. Bake in a preheated oven (180deg C) for about 20 - 25 minutes.
