I have been experimenting with baking using vegetables recently and so far it has been fun. Surprisingly, it has all gone down well with the children. Coincidentally, I am delighted to receive this Baking with Vegetables cookbook from Parragon. As the name suggests, there are some fabulous recipes with using vegetables in your bakes and it’s given me even more inspiration to be adventurous.
Halloween is coming soon. Have you thought of what you are going to bake? If not, why not try baking these Zombie fingers. I am not a professional baker, but just an enthusiastic amateur baker. I believe you could bake better fingers than me. This is a recipe from Patsie Cheong, One Day One Dish book which I bought while in Singapore. I have altered the recipe slightly to suit the Halloween theme.
