Toddler Treats #3 – Cheesy Tommy Muffins

Hi Guys!!

Welcome back to my third #ToddlerTreats feature in my new series and I cannot believe we are on week three already! If you missed the first two weeks, don’t fret, you can link to them both here: Week#1 – Scrumptious Yogurt Buttons & Week#2 – Delicious Strawberry Crunchies. I now have a Toddler Treats Pinterest board too, which is another way to keep up to date with this wee weekly feature – so feel free to also follow that.

This week I’ve decided to go savoury and try Annabelle on a few things that she used to love but seems to have gone a little wayward on them, i.e. scrunched up noses, throwing them on the floor, you feel my pain. So this week I’ve made some: Cheesy Tommy Muffins!

Again they are in line with my super easy recipe ‘must have’ as us Mums are busy enough right? So these little beauties only took me 10-15mins prep time {done as Belle napped, most likely on her bedroom floor – as usual at the moment} and cooking time 20 mins. So they really don’t take much time at all, plus they are filled with ingredients that we’d generally have around the house too.

Here’s what you’ll need:

225g/8oz Self-Raising flour
Salt & Pepper
100g/3 1/2oz cheddar cheese, grated
175ml/6fl oz Milk
1 free-range egg
55ml/2fl oz Olive oil
10 cherry tomatoes

Now to get mixing:

– You need to combine your self-raising flour, grated cheese and your salt & pepper in one bowl. Combine well.

– In a separate bowl mix your olive oil, milk and egg until well combined then add that to your dry mix, and mix very well.

– Next, you’ll need to grease each of your muffin compartments {we don’t want any sticky business!} and fill each up half way. Now…this is where I did mine a ‘little’ differently. I didn’t want them all the same AND I used a 12 muffin tin so I made the mixture stretch for two extra muffins, woohoo! I filled six up nicely and half filled the other six. I placed a half cherry Tommy into the full sections {just pressed it down into the mixutre} and a full cherry Tommy into the half sections and just covered them up with the leftover mix.

Remember to pop those full cherry tommys, to prevent popping when in the oven. I forgot to do this, but they seemed to turn out OK! haha!

Here’s what I mean…
And here is how they come out after those precious 20 minutes… FYI? They smelt DELICIOUS!

Now came the big test…would Annabelle like them? I decided to serve a muffin up to her along with some scrambled egg. It looked so yum I was even a little envious!

Now, Annabelle wasn’t too keen on these very delicious looking cheesy Tommy muffins. The hint of cheese made her give them a funny look {she’s no mug!}…

So a Mummy fail on trying to get her over the cheese barrier she seems to have put up! As all she seemed to do was steal the toms on top and leave the rest! Wee rascal! My cheese-loving eldest had a few though and said they were YUM with a big thumbs up!

So there you go guys, another easy peasy and scrumptious toddler treat for you all! I hope you’ll have a wee go in making this one and if you do, please let me know how you got on, I’d love to hear how it went!

    Those look like exactly the sort of thing I pretend I am making for the kids, but actually I fully intend to eat a fair few myself. Lovely idea! Will certainly be trying this.

    These look so tasty, I’ll definitely be trying them – maybe they’ll help me convince my big boy to try tomatoes again!
