Happy new week guys! I wish you all a fruitful week. Oven baked moimoi muffin is on the menu today, I shared Moimoi Rollup (Baked Beans Pudding Roulade) recipe a while go on the blog, this is also baked but in a different way. To make oven baked moimoi muffins you need to peel beans, I have a post on how to peel beans with a blender, you can check it out. You can make this recipe with/without the toppings I used.
Oven baked moimoi muffin is another way to make moimoi if you don’t want to steam. To steam or baked is the same process except for the method of cooking. You can pair oven baked moimoi muffins or steamed moimoi with rice, bread, pap, garri, or by itself.
Let get started!
You might want to try;
- 1 pound Peeled beans (2 measuring cups)
- 3 Eggs Sliced
- 2 Small Habanero/rodo
- 1 Red Bell
- 1.5 Onions (divided)
- 2/3 Cup Oil
- 24 Pieces Shrimps/Prawns
- Boiled fish (debone and shred)
- Knorr bouillon powder/cube
- Salt to taste
Blend the peeled beans with habanero, red bell, and a half onion. Blend until you have a smooth paste. I tend to blend the beans first then add the pepper later after I have blended the beans for a few minutes.
Preheat the oven to 370 degrees F.
In a shallow bowl, add the blended mixture.
Add oil and mix. Make sure you incorporate the oil first before you have any liquid. If you're using palm oil, heat the oil and let it cool down before adding it to the beans.
Add one raw egg (optional) and mix. Add the knorr, salt and continue to stir. Add water ( I used fish stock) to the mixture, I used about 11/4 (1 cup +1/4 measuring cup)
Add one chopped onion and mix. Make sure you incorporate air (it makes it light and fluffy) into the mixture.
Debone and shred the fish, peel and devein the shrimps. If you're using dried shrimps/prawns, soak in water and salt to clean, rinse and set aside.
Slice the eggs and set aside.
Grease the muffin pans or line with muffins paper then spray. Set aside.
After a proper mixture of the beans, check for the seasoning and re-season if necessary.
pour the mixture into the pan, add the toppings: slice egg, fish and shrimps/prawn. If you don't want to use boiled eggs, mix the raw eggs and pour into the beans instead of boiled eggs.
Add water to a baking sheet to prevent the moimoi from drying out while cooking. Place the muffin pans on the baking sheet.
Bake for 35-40 minutes.
Use a toothpick and check the middle of the moimoi to check if it's fully cooked, if the toothpick comes out clean, it's cooked.
Let the moimoi cool down before removing the moimoi from the pan.
Serve with your favorite or eat by itself.
Moimoi served with rice.
The baking time may slightly differ. I used small muffin pans (about 1/4 cup size).
For steaming moimoi: It's the same process except you'll need to grease ramekins pan then pour the mixture top with your choice of toppings; egg, shrimps, fish and you can also cook without the toppings.
You can also use leaves to steam.
