Tuna Muffin

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day they say. That is why breakfast menus can be varied differently each day from eggs (sunny sides up, hard-boiled, etc) to boiled or fried noodles, some might surprise @the idea full meal for breakfast but the truth is i think most Asian people are used to it.
So i was looking for another breakfast idea, other than bread, oatmeal, noodles which we so often have and stumbles upon a recipe book from Sedap. Getting bored with pretty little cupcakes that often taste sweets, i chose to try a tuna muffin recipe out of that book. I'm sharing the recipe here:

Prep. time : 45 mins
Yields : 10 muffins

225 gr all medium-protein flour
1 tbs baking powder
25 gr unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tbs sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
150 ml milk
1 tbs onion, finely chopped and quick stir-fry on the pan with 1 tsp of butter
75 gr tuna in water
2 tbs cheddar cheese

Sift flour and baking powder, add butter and sugar. Mix well until they forms crumbles. Set Aside.
Lightly beaten egg, salt and milk
Pour the egg mixture one at a time to the flour mixture, mix well.
Add onion, tuna, and cheddar cheese to the mixture, and mix well.
Line muffins pan with muffin or cupcakes cups, and using a spatula or ice cream scoop, put the batter in the cups. Bake for 20 minutes on 190 degree Celsius or until they are done (mine were less than that).

They looked beautiful indeed, but it was a little bit of blunt to my taste (or perhaps that was because i used a left over cheese?), so for you who loves salty food, you might want to crank-up the salt or fresh cheddar cheese a bit.
