Halloween Midday Madness

I made the kids cake for Halloween!

Actually I made myself cake, but I gave some to them too. I needed cake. Knowing Halloween and all its Twix goodness was coming couldn't deter me. I actually went out of my way to buy the mayo to make this cake from Bon Appetit. (Click here for the recipe)

At least I didn't make the chocolate caramel frosting…yet. (I did add chips to the cake though – judiciously, it's a thin batter.)

Tip – I don't use baking spray. I do use butter and cocoa powder instead of flour for chocolate cake.

 

Pumpkins For Your Pumpkins

A 17 year tradition! Use an open cookie cutter wiped with veggie oil or baking spray and fill it right on the griddle. You might need to run a knife around the edge after you flip, but it's worth it.

This is an amended Martha recipe. (Click here for the recipe) I added another tablespoon of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (a pumpkin spice blend would be great too).

Happy Halloween – B
