1Preheat your oven to 180ºC / 350ºF / Gas Mark 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tray with baking paper or cupcake cases.

2Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients excluding the feta. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold through until combined. Then fold through the feta.

3Spoon mixture evenly into the line muffin tray. Place into the oven and cook for about 25 minutes or cooked through.

4Meanwhile, add a dash of oil to a fry pan on medium heat. Add in bacon pieces and fry until crispy. Once cooked, set aside.
