Did you know that Jamie Oliver has teamed up with Moshi Monsters favourite character Furi to inspire young budding chefs around the world to get into the kitchen and learn how to cook? The duo have been cooking up a storm in Jamie’s kitchen to create a delicious Butternut Squash Muffin.
Furi is just one of the latest guest stars on Jamie’s Food Tube channel, with the chef regularly welcoming fellow YouTubers and chefs to join him in the kitchen. With expert tutorials, easy to follow recipes and good food, Jamie and Furi are aiming to excite a new generation of chefs to get creative.
This is my first time using vegetable in a muffin and I was quite worried that it would taste bland but to my surprise, we all love it! This recipe is so easy to make and very delicious too! It tastes like a proper delicious cake and I love that it has the hidden vegetable inside too.
This bake requires a food processor to mash up the butternut squash. I don’t have a food processor so I ended up using my Breville Blend Active to mash up the butternut squash, olive oil, egg and walnut mixture in it. It works like a charm!
