Corn Muffin & Lasagna

my loaf of corn muffin :p
the batter
corn muffins goes well with left over meat sauce

For yesterday's bbq, I baked some corn muffins for the bbdks to eat with the grilled chickies. Actually, the recipe WAS a corn muffin recipe but I was too lazy to bake 'em in separate muffin tins, I dumped the whole thing in a square pan and bake it as a whole.

Here's the recipe:


115 g butter, softened ( or 100g margarine )
100 g white sugar
30 ml honey
2 eggs
3 g salt
190 g all-purpose flour
90 g yellow cornmeal
4 g baking powder
120 ml milk
125 g frozen corn kernels, thawed

How to make:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the honey, eggs and salt. Mix in flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Add corn kernels, drained and patted with kitchen towel to make sure no extra liquid added to the batter. Stir in milk until batter is smooth. Spoon into prepared muffin cups.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tops of muffins are lightly browned.

and as for dinner, I baked some lasagna to finish off the extra minced meat I had left in the fridge. I used the ones that didn't have to be boil first before baking, so it was really less the hassle The sauce was easy to make, and here's my version of it.

( I was running out of cheese so I did some white sauce as a replacement. Usually, each slices of lasagna is filled with meat sauce and cheese, but the white sauce is also a great way to substitute cheese for recipes such as this )

500g minced meat
1 green onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 green peppers, finely diced
400g whole tomatoes ( in can..or you can use any of your favourite spaghetti sauce)
3 tablespoons chilli sauce
3 tablespoons beef stock ( melted in warm water )
dried basil
dried oregano
1 slice of cheese
olive oil to fry
salt, pepper sugar to taste

for the white sauce

60g butter
2 tablespoons flour
600ml milk

How to make:

1. Fry onions, garlic and peppers in olive oil until fragrant. Add in miced meat and fry until water from meat dries.
2. Add in tomatoes, chilli sauce and beef stock. Stir well and add in dried herbs, salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
3. Remove sauce from heat and pour in a bowl. Add in the slice of cheese and mix until cheese is evenly melted. Leave to cool.

for the white sauce:
1. Melt the butter in a small pot. Add in the flour and mix it well. Pour in the milk and continue to stir until the mixture starts to thicken. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat into a bowl and leave to cool.

Pilling up the lasagna:

1. Spread the bottom of the cassarole with white sauce and the tomato-meat sauce. Place your pieces of lasagna so it covers up the surface. Remember not to put the lasagna too close to the sides of the cassarole because when it's baked, the lasagna tends to spread to the sides. You'll get the side of the lasagnas popping out from the cassarole if you do so.
2. Then spread a generous amount of both of the sauce until you get a nice layers of lasagna. And lastly you can top it up with some shredded cheese or if you don't have any, you can use sliced cheese.
3. Bake in preheated oven of 240 degrees C for 20-30 minutes. Serve warm.

and there you go..homemade lasagna! Sedap dimakan time die tengah panas2. Will probably save you a lottttt more money than buying the ready ones in the store or at Domino's
