Bento #270 - Clone Troopers


Ahhh...! Finally, it's the last day of school and we can have a break and some fun.  I've yet to think up the plan for next week.  Let's see what Kimi wants to do.  These days he has a mind of his own and will tell me his plan and what he wants to do or go. :)

A busy start today as Kimi was too tired after his field trip yesterday to bake cuppies for his teachers so we did it this morning.  This is a fuss-free and fast & easy recipe.  U only need a fork, a measuring cup and a bowl.  I will share recipe later.  I've shared this previously in my contributing corner at the Greast Eastern Live Great Blog.  Do check it out, it has many healthy recipes and health tips - very informative indeed!

Of course with these out of the oven, Kimi wanted them for his lunchbox too. We made 2 flavours - for his teachers, we made Lavender choc chip and cranberry and an alternative choice for Kimi is choc chip with fresh Blueberry. He had 1 each for school.  Added our usual stash of broccoli and corn, mini taiwan sausages that hb bought during his last trip and golden kiwi.

I took the easy way out and press on cupcake rings. Kimi was thrilled. I got to scream again - Yay!!last day of school today!
 
 
Easy 1 Bowl Muffins Recipe (makes 10 small muffins)
 
What do you need?
  • 125g self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 125ml milk
  • 70g oil or melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Toppings or fillings - Chocolate chips, fresh blueberries, dried cranberries, shredded carrot, cubed cheese and chocolate rice etc

How do you do it?
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degree celsius
  2. Sift flour and salt together and mix with sugar
  3. Beat egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence till smooth well mixed
  4. Pour into dry ingredients and mix till just combined
  5. Spoon batter into muffin cup till about 1/3 full
  6. Add in fillings of your choice
  7. Top up batter till 3/4 full
  8. If you wish, you may add sprinkles or leave top plain
  9. Bake in oven for about 15mins, longer if larger cups or lesser if smaller cups
Tips
  • I find adding choc chips to the flour to coat before adding the wet ingredients better as the chips will not sink to the bottom of the cups.  But if you want different flavours in 1 baking batch then you will have to use the 1/3 batter, filling and top up method.

Wow, that does sound like super easy cupcakes! I have to try it!

Btw I'm a total newbie at the Bento thing, but think I should try and do more because my DS2 is such a picky eater. Where did you get the star wars picks from?? They are SUPER cute!!
