  • 20 - 25 minutes


  • 2 x 170 grams tuna, tinned, in water
  • 1/2 cup kernel corn, tinned, drained (optional)
  • 2 tbsp spring onion, sliced
  • 3 eggs, x-large
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 carton cottage cheese, smooth (flavored or not)
  • capers, drained (optional)
  • salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 180 oC. Grease 12 jumbo pan (or 12 smaller) muffin pan. Drain the tuna thoroughly using a sieve.
Mix the tuna, kernel corn, fresh rocket, spring onion, salt and pepper in a bowl. Beat the eggs and milk together with a fork or hand whisk and stir into the tuna mixture. Spoon into the muffin pan.
Bake for 22 minutes or till centers are set. Let cool for a bit and remove carefully.


Pipe the cottage cheese on top of each cupcake and decorate with capers. (If you don’t have a piping bag – use a plastic sandwich bag, fill with the cottage cheese, cut off a small corner at the bottom of the bag and pipe it on the tuna cupcake.) You can pipe on mash/pumpkin mash instead.
Perfect as a starter – or serve 2 as a main with vegetables and starches.
