Olive and Rosemary Muffins

Olive and Rosemary MuffinsThis delicious muffin recipe is a perfect tea time serving for everyone. It's up to you how strong the rosemary flavor you want in the muffins. So, do not hesitate in adjusting its quantity as per your taste. They are done pretty quickly in the oven so you can make them fresh just before the gathering. Chop fresh rosemary as fine as you can to get the best results. Use fresh or semi-dried black olives for infusing the best flavor within muffins. You can either use a combination of butter and cheese or can simply use the former option. I love to serve these muffins with a buttery dip or with sour cream. It's time to make these fluffy, light, and scrumptious muffins loaded with olives and fresh rosemary.
