Big Kid/Little Kid Bento Box

September 07

I’m always looking for little lunchbox fillers and the cornbread muffins are the latest winner so give them a go if you fancy mixing things up.

  • serves Serves 2
  • time 25mins

Method

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/170˚C fan/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Line a large muffin tin and mini muffin tin with paper cases - or, grease a large and mini silicone muffins tray.
  2. 2. Add the flour, baking powder, cornmeal, cheddar, halloumi, sweetcorn and chives into a bowl. Season with salt and black pepper and stir to combine.
  3. 3. In a jug, mix together the milk, eggs and melted butter.
  4. 4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to only just combine, then spoon the mixture into the mini muffin tin, for your little one.
  5. 5. Slice 1 jalapeño into thin rings - you’ll need about 8 and finely chop the other.
  6. 6. Stir the finely chopped jalapeños into the remaining batter and spoon this into the large muffin cases. Top all the muffins with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and press a slice of jalapeño into the larger muffins.
  7. 7. Bake the muffins in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden and risen. Leave to cook before assembling with the rest of your bento box fillers.
