Vegan MoFo Day 12 - Cockney Sparrow

So a couple of weeks ago, one of my dad's friends gave us this marrow and this bitch is HUGE! I mean come on, look at this beast.

So when life gives you fucking huge marrows, whaddya do? Make muffins of course.

So I made some corn muffins and they're pretty nice. So the recipe is below the pic, for anyone who finds themselves with an abundance of marrow (or you could just use courgette/zucchini).

Corn & Marrow Muffins (Makes 6)
1 cup grated marrow (ish, once I squeezed out the water I had just under a cup of marrow)
1/2 cup sweetcorn (1/2 a small tin)

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup medium cornmeal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp maple syrup/agave
2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil

Preheat oven to 180C/350F and spray a muffin tin with oil spray.

Mix dry ingredients together. Squeeze most of the water out of the marrow and add with the sweetcorn to the dry mix.  Mix wet ingredients and pour into dry and mix well.

Divide between six greased muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Cockney translation of the day
Cockney Sparrow = Marrow


  1. My word, you could have someone's eye out with that. Good call on the muffins - corn and marrow are meant to be muffinised. They deserve it, dammit!

  2. That is HUGE! Love the nail shot, too!

    I am always looking for muffins that lean towards being more savoury rather than sweet so I will defo be trying these out!

  3. That is one great big marrow!

  4. Dang, that mutha is huuge! Looks like you found a good use for it!

  5. That picture nearly made me spew out my tea! :D

    Oh, the Cockney Sparrow jokes in my head. Must. not. be. inappropriate.

    Savory muffins! Awesome!
