2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 oz freshly grated parmesan (1 cup)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.
Whisk together eggs, milk, and oil in a bowl. Whisk together 3/4 cup cheese and all of remaining ingredients in a large bowl, then add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until combined.
Divide among 12 greased (1/2-cup) muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake until a tester comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack 5 to 10 minutes.
