Joanne Makes Jamie some Muffins

As promised Joanne came in this morning with a bag full of muffins, especially for Jamie!

When Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow came in on Toby's show last week. Joanne was so excited to meet them - she even went and changed into a nice dress, and did her hair! However she needed someone to introduce her. 

So, Joanne begged Jamie to introduce her to Gary and promised to bake him anything he wanted if he could help her. 

Travel Joanne and Gary BarlowIt worked, and here's Joanne and Gary Barlow, so now for the baking.

This morning (Tuesday 31st) Joanne came in clutching 12 Cheesy Onion Muffins. We loved them so much we thought we'd share the recipe.
