Oven baked Moin Moin

Moin moin is a pudding made with beans . A protein rich food that is found in different parts of Nigeria.
  • 260 grams of peeled beans
  • 1 Tatashe
  • 1 onion
  • 1cup hot water
  • 200ml  water (for blending)
  • 1/2 tbs blended rodo
  • 3 Bullion cubes
  • 2 cooking spoon of vegetable oil
  • salt
  • 1/2 tin of corned beef
  • 4 boiled eggs


  • Bowl
  • Blender
  • Whisk
  • Baking pans (greased or lined with baking paper)


(Preheat oven 155°c)

  • You want to start by washing the beans and getting the shaft off. Soak beans for a few hours to soften. This step should be done earlier.
  • Transfer beans, onions, chopped and bell pepper with 200ml of water into blender and blend till it gets very smooth

  • Pour batter into a bowl and whisk in one egg for about 5 minutes. This will make the moin moin have a nice fluffy texture.

  • Add your scotch bonnet pepper, seasoning cube, salt, hot water and vegetable oil and mix . (Seasoning cube should be dissolved in hot water)
Cooking spoon of oil
  • Add the corned beef and stir. Transfer into greased or lined pan.
  • Slice the already boiled eggs and distribute into pan, cover with foil .Your moin moin is ready to go into the oven.
  • I allowed mine to cook for 1hr 30mins in total, it gets ready faster or slower depending on the thickness of the pan used and the size of the pan.I used a nonstick 2lb loaf tin.
  •  Take out of the oven , allow to cool, then turn it out into a plate and serve.

Note: place pan on an oven tray with water.
