Recipes Lock Rss

Hi again,

I finally got around to making some muffins and combined a few different recipes to come up with these ones. My son loves them and they freeze well. I make them in mini muffin pans and they are the perfect size for his little hands.

LUKES CHEESY MUFFINS

Makes 24 mini muffins


2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup grated cheese
1 egg beaten
1 cup milk
I small tin creamed corn
1/2 cup chopped or grated veg (asparagus/carrot/zucchini etc. or 1sml tin tuna drained)

Preheat oven to 200C. Mix together flour and cheese. In a separate bowl beat egg and add all other ingredients. Mix together then add to flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Divide into greased muffin tins. Bake 15-20 mins until golden. Remove from tin immediately and cool on a wire rack.

LUKES FRUITY MUFFINS

Makes 24 mini muffins.

2 cups self raising flour
1 apple peeled, cored and grated
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 small tin pureed baby fruit (apple or pear)
1/2 cup chopped fruit (peach/pear/mango/banana)


Preheat oven to 200C. Mix together flour and grated apple. In a separate bowl beat egg and add all other ingredients. mix together and add to flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Divide into greased mini muffin tins. Bake 15-20 mins until golden brown. Remove from tin immedietly and cool on a wire rack.

If you wanted you could add sugar to the fruity muffins, but I think they are sweet enough for babies.

Enjoy

I was wondering if you add water to the formula? And how much breast milk would you use instead?
Thank you

SA, 2 boys

The number of scoops is made up to how much water is required on the side of your formula tin. With my Heinz Nurture formula its 1 scoop to 50ml of water so with breast milk I dare say 2 scoops would be the equivalent to 100mls of breast milk and 3 scoops would be 150mls of breastmilk. Does that help?
Bread and Butter Pudding 9months+

2 slices white bread (crusts removed)
butter
1 1/2 cups (310ml) milk, formula, breastmilk
2 eggs

Whisk milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla in medium jug; pour egg mixture over bread, sprinkle with nutmeg. Pour enough boiling water into baking dish to come halfway up sides of dishes.

Hello Ellebaby your recipes are just great!! I have printed everyone off and put it in a special folder! You should start your own recipe book......I would be your first customer. Keep up the GREAT work.
Hi calebsman!

Thankyou for your lovely post, although I'm not going to take credit for all the recipes as some I have taken from tv, magazines, books, pamphlets, internet etc...but I can definately say they all have been tested and passed by my own human guinea pig, my son.. lol! If he doesnt like anything, then I don't post it. Thankyou once again, take care and happy baking!!

Elle
sorry..I meant 'calebsMUM' ...damn typos lol
I submitted this recipe to the heniz baby website, but they never posted it sad

Zach's Groovy Meatballs 9months +

1 egg
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
Pinch dried basil
500g chicken, veal or lean beef mince


1.Mix all ingredients by hand.
2.Form tiny balls (size of a 10cent piece) and when you have about 20, heat some canola oil.
3.Fry meatballs until just golden.
Keep forming more balls while your frying.
4.Drain cooked balls on absorbent paper
When cooked, the meatballs wil be soft and spongy due to the presence of bread crumbs and egg. As baby grows, make them larger to suit appetite.

Freeze in batches of 10 (about 5 per meal) and thaw in fridge a day before serving.
Can be eaten cold or steamed, rather than nuked in microwave.
Wow Guys!! These recipes are great!! I can't even explain how helpful this site is. I was wondering when to start my son on food like this, because some of the baby food , looks and smells DISGUSTING!!! Would much rather make him some of these yummy recipes - I wanna eat them myself! Thanks again - great job!
