As you probably know, tomorrow is a big day – it's the return of The Great British Bake Off! Mary, Paul and a whole new bunch of bakers, willing to share their baking successes (and failures) with millions of viewers.

We thought we'd get into the spirit of things by baking some savoury muffins. Eat them as a savoury snack, or with soup for lunch.

The recipe is taken from The Savoury Gluten-Free Baker by Hannah Miles (Ryland Peters & Small, £16.99)
