  1. Step 1:

    Set the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4) Line a cupcake tin with paper cake cases.

  2. Step 2:

    Place the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl.

  3. Step 3:

    In another bowl mix the eggs, oil, and milk together.

  4. Step 4:

    Crumble the feta cheese finely into the flour and stir in the herbs and Gruyère cheese. Season with a little black pepper. Stir in the milk and egg mixture until evenly mixed but don’t worry if it is a little lumpy.

  5. Step 5:

    Divide the mixture between the cake cases and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch.

  6. Step 6:

    Allow to cool completely. They will keep for 2 days in a cake tin.

  7. Step 7:

    If you would like to decorate the cupcakes a tasty option is to blend together cream cheese, basil leaves and garlic in a food processor  until smooth. Season to taste and spread on the cakes. Decorate with baby basil leaves.
