Mini Muffins – 3 ingedients

I’ve made another one of these, the mini muffins. Although I dont know why it isn’t called mini cupcakes? So I decided it might look nice with a little decoration on top.

This is what you need:

  • 1 cup self raising flour sifted
  • 1 cup thickened cream, not whipped
  • 3T sugar


  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  2. Pour into mini muffin tray.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes at  180ºC.

Perfect for the kids to try!

Baked Fish – 3 ingredients

I tried out the baked fish from the 3 ingredients or less recipes. I’ve always made I&J fish (cheese in the middle ones) out the box and Woolworths brand of fish and chips which is quite tasty.

Over the weekend, I visited a shop called Mediterranean in Fourways. I remember my sister telling me they were good. I’ve never bought fish in my life before – where you pick what you want and they clean it for you. I’ve just done it with prawns. I just asked for white fish to bake, and was given so many options. What to choose? I ended up buying hake because it seemed like the popular one (I&J?).

This would make an ideal main course, gets done quickly.

What you need:

  • 2 fresh white fish fillets
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 lemon

Place your fish onto some foil, large enough to cover it. Coat the fish with melted butter. I used slightly more than 1 teaspoon, but dont take notice of that. Season with salt and pepper. Add slices of lemon over fish. Wrap in foil.

Bake in oven for 20 minutes on 180ºC.


I must point out though that my husband found it bland. If you enjoy your seafood with lemon butter then give this one a go. I love grilled calamari with lemon butter, so I enjoyed it.

For those of you who asked about the recipes, they can be found here.

Scones – with 3 ingredients

A friend of mine sent me a bunch of recipes that require 3 ingredients (or less) to make. I thought, wow, how cool is that.

There were some baking stuff – scones, muffins and cakes. Also some main dishes – sweet and spicy chicken, baked fish (I think I might try that next) and Moroccan salmon.

I decided to try the scones. The following recipe is what was given, I decided to make half the recipe.

What you need:

  • 4 cups self raising flour
  • 300ml cream
  • 1 can lemonde


  1. Sift self raising flour into a bowl, make a well and pour in cream and lemonade.
  2. Mix to make a firm dough. (I added a little more flour here to make it firm)
  3. Roll out and cut with a scone cutter.
  4. Bake in a hot oven until golden brown.

I baked it on 180ºC.

Serve with jam and cream or cheese if you prefer savoury. Due to the lack of sugar, I opted for jam + cream.

Well what do you know, it works!
