1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ 350F/gas 4 and butter a standard-size 12-hole muffin tin.
2. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper together with the cheddar cheese in a large mixing bowl.
3. Stir together the eggs, half the milk, oil, olives and herbs, then add to the dry ingredients and lightly mix together until just combined.
4. Mix the feta, cream cheese and the remaining milk together to form a paste. Half fill the muffin tray with the muffin mixture, add one twelfth of the feta mixture to each muffin, then top with the remaining muffin mixture.
5. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, then place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave the muffins to cool in their tin.
