  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Cook the barley in a saucepan filled with boiling water for about 25 minutes or until it is tender.  Let cool down.
  3. Apply a fine coat of oil onto eight cups in a muffin pan.
  4. In a bowl, mix all ingredients (but only half the cheese).
  5. Distribute this mixture among the muffin cups, then also distribute the remaining cheese on top of each mixture-filled cup.  Bake in the oven 25 to 30 minutes or until the mini-cakes are cooked and gratinated.
