Let me begin by saying, that putting Caraway seeds in muffins is pure genius! It adds such a distinctive flavor, and the aromatics are phenomenal (You can find Caraway fragrances in oils, lotions, soaps, perfumes, ect..). Begin paired with the pungent sharp cheddar cheese really steps up these muffins into an almost princess (I couldn't help it!) like stature. Or shall I say they would be suitable for a queen (I'm sorry but I was up at 5AM blissfully gazing at the British Monarchy), elegantly served at high tea. Perhaps even a Dutchess, (how elegant did Princess Catherine look, and the tiara! Would it be in poor taste to ask for a tiara for Mothers Day?) would loath to get her royal fingers on just one of these scrumptious little numbers. So it may seem quite fitting that I received this recipe from a royal dignitary in her own right. Thank you Miss Charlene.

(I used a mini muffin pan, so I could watch my portion control)
