Heat oil in a small non-stick pan, add the spring onion and capsicum and cook for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened. Remove from heat and drain on absorbent paper.

Sift the self-raising flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and gradually pour in the milk, egg and margarine while mixing gently. Fold in the onion mix, zucchini, baked beans and cheese until just combined.
