Homemade Baby Food: Marmite/Bovil Stick

Trying to make some finger food for Baby FAN as snack and saw a Marmite Stick recipe in my baby recipe book. But the recipe called for pizza dough, so I look through and stumble upon this one which is yeast free. Here's the modified one.

Pizza Dough
(click here for original recipe)
  • 1.5 cup all-purpose flour (Ask I used bread flour instead as I run out of all-purpose)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I just put a small pinch or you can omit it if making for baby)
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (I poured in some premixed italian herbs instead)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (omitted this)
  • 1 eggs, lightly beaten (I reduced it, original recipe called for 2 eggs which is too much)
  • 2/3 cup milk (I replace this with 1/2 cup of baby formula milk)
  • Bovil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a rimmed pizza pan or baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, salt, herbs and black pepper. Mix in eggs and milk; stir well. Pour batter into prepared pan and tilt until evenly coated, spread the batter really thin as it do rise.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until crust is set. Put in toppings of choice, in my case I spread a thin layer of bovil on the pizza (spread the bovil very thin as it's rather saltish).
  4. Remove crust from oven. Bake until bovil dries up. Then cut into strips or small pieces.

Muesli-Applesauce Muffins

Bought this Apple & Muesli for Baby FAN to try but she don't like it. So, instead of letting is turn bad in the fridge, I decided to try making muffins out of it. Found a Muesli-Applesauce Muffin recipe from All, so tried my hand at making it so that I can feed Baby FAN the muffins since she prefer chewy food to mushy food now.

Here's the recipe:

Muesli-Applesauce Muffins

* 1 cup applesauce (I have one left over banana, substitute half the applesauce with mash banana)
* 1/3 cup vegetable oil
* 2/3 cup white sugar (I thought the recipe was quite sweet with the banana, applesauce and rasin, so cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and still find it sweet, next time maybe I will take out the sugar totally)
* 1 egg
* 1/2 cup water
* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/4 cups muesli cereal
* 1 cup raisins

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease one 12-cup muffin tin.
2. In a large bowl, beat the applesauce, oil egg, sugar and water together for 2 minutes at medium speed.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, allspice and muesli together. Add the dry ingredients to the applesauce mixture. Beat on low speed until combined.
4. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin filling each cup 3/4 full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown an spring back lightly when touched. Remove from pans immediately to cool.
