Fun kids' recipe : Mouse Muffins

I couldn't resist sharing another of Chedds Shapes & Towers fun recipes with you straight away ! We've just had the mother of all storms - thunder and lightning, torrential rain and the sky got as dark as night all of a sudden which was rather freaky - so I think our plans for a day out may have been scuppered. If we end up staying in, I think we may end up making these !



Makes 6

125g salted butter
250 ml plain flour
70g of Cathedral City Cheddar, grated
2 eggs
175 ml milk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

To decorate:
1 radish for the ears
cucumber strips for the whiskers
CHEDDS SHAPES for the eyes, nose and mouth

Pre-heat the oven to 180/gas mark 4

Place the butter and flour into a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the baking powder and cheese.

Beat the eggs with the milk and stir into the flour mixture. If the mixture is too stiff add a little more milk until you have a dropping consistency.

Line a muffin tin with cupcake cases and divide the mixture equally between each case. Bake in the oven at 200c for 20 minutes or until golden and a skewer when inserted comes out clean. Decorate with Chedds Shapes to make the face and little slithers of cucumber for the whiskers and tail.
