Savoury Olive and sun-dried tomato muffins

My proposal is to make muffins but you can also bake the dough on a rectangular baking mold and make a savoury bread to enjoy with a nice salad.

The best part of these muffins is that they are super easy to make and they stay moist and perfect for 3-4 days.
