We love baking and we love Moshi Monsters so when we were asked if we wanted to make some goopendous moshi monster muffins we just couldn’t say no. The hamper arrived and I was very confused to see that it contained a butternut squash, I mean I was supposed to be making muffins not soup however when the recipe dropped into my inbox all became clear.
Jamie Oliver has teamed up with Moshi Monsters using his Food Tube channel to help get kids in the kitchen and get them cooking and this is certainly a great recipe to do together. Both girls thought it was hilarious to watch Furi pour Gloop soup all over Jamie Oliver and seeing the moshlings dance around his kitchen was lots of fun too. I think that the new moshling Jammie Olive Oil is pretty cool and I think he will be a great hit with Moshi fans.
Using the following ingredients and watching the Food Tube video for instructions myself and Alison whisked up some super tasty, quick and easy muffins.
Jamie and Furi’s Butternut Squash Muffin’s:
200g butternut squash (skin on)
175g soft brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
150g plain flour
1 heaped tablespoon baking powder
big handful walnuts
5 tablespoons olive oil
75g sour cream
1 tbsp icing sugar
1 vanilla pod
zest 1 lemon
(optional a few seasonal berries)
This recipe was great as it didnt involve loads of kitchen equipment which really helped with the washing up.
It seems that these gloppendous muffins attract Moshlings as we were soon overrun with them. Thankfully Furi was not around so we got to eat the muffins too which really were monsterific. We all really enjoyed stuffing our faces with these yummy treats and the girls have asked if we can make some more already!
