Simple Egg Sandwich Filling

This is my quick and easy lunch solution, especially if I have minimal ingredients at home! My husband and boys love this!! My husband loves his very SIMPLE egg sandwiches (if he makes it himself it is literally just eggs + store bought mayo) however he also loves it with the extra spring onions and occasionally with 1 teaspoon of Keens Curry Powder.

Ham and Cheese Muffins

The boys loooooooooooooove these muffins!! They tastes like a bacon and cheese bread roll, but so much quicker and easier to make 😉 These muffins are just as amazing as the Vegemite and Cheese Muffins!!

I use the bacon style pieces (that you can get for pizzas) as I find they hold really well in muffins and bread rolls/scrolls. You can use your own grated cheese, but I always buy my cheese grated (my lazy self) with my favourite being the pizza blend – you get the best of everything – parmesan, tasty and mozzarella.

I also love these straight into silicon muffin tins as it gets crunchy around the bottom half of the muffin (as well as the muffin top) – whereas it sticks onto muffin cases if you use them and it kind of wastes that extra crunchiness.

Orange Yoghurt Cake

This is super moist on the inside and nice and crunchy on the outside! I have a lot of oranges and yoghurt at the moment so thought I would combine the 2 together with some baking!

I used my Kmart Silicon Mini Loaf Pans for this – you can use any cake tin for this – muffin ones, square ones, or 1 loaf/cake tin but you will need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

 Cut the ends off the orange and with a sharp knife, cut the orange rind off (leaving the white peel)
 
Cut the ‘white peel’ off
 
Quarter the oranges – discard the ‘white peel’ and ends of orange, and use the orange rind and quartered orange flesh
 
Add all cake ingredients to bowl

Mix 10 seconds/Speed 7
 
Pour into greased cake/loaf pan(s)
 
Bake for 30 minutes or until tops are browned
 
Wait for cakes to cool and make icing. Place icing in a zip lock bag then cut off the corner.
 
Pipe on top of the cakes

 If you wish (and have an extra orange) – grate the rind of an orange

 

And sprinkle on top of icing
 
Orange Yoghurt Cake
 
Moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside – ENJOY!
