Halloween is a great time of the year to get into a bit of baking. Schools are closed and the days are short; it’s a perfect time to make some delicious treats for being cosy inside. Ghosts and ghouls, skeletons, bats, spiders and witches all work a treat, the only limit is your imagination.

Once the pumpkins have been carved, there’s always lots of pumpkin flesh to cook with. Delicious pumpkin soup will definitely be on the menu, but I also have plenty of pumpkin leftover for baking.
