It's October and lots of people are getting their costumes and candy out. And they start making some delicious goodies that are Halloween-themed. Here is a recipe from BBC Good Food on how to make a yummy a treat for Halloween.
HALLOWEEN SPIDER WEB FUDGE CAKES
1. 50 grams of dark chocolate ( 55% of cocoa solids is fine )
2. 85 grams of butter
3. 1 tbsp of milk, water or coffee
4. 200 grams of self-raising flour
5. half tsp of bicarbonate of soda
6. 85 grams of light muscovado sugar
7. 50 grams of golden caster sugar
8. 1 egg
9. 142 ml of carton soured cream
For the topping :
Use 100 grams of dark chocolate .
And also use 100 grams of white chocolate
How to do it
Preheat the oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/gas 5 and line a muffin tin with 10 paper muffin cases. Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl, add the butter and liquid. Melt in the microwave on Medium for 30-45 seconds (or set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water). Stir and leave the mixture to cool.
Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and both sugars in a bowl. Beat the egg in another bowl and stir in the soured cream, then pour this on the flour mixture and add the cooled chocolate. Stir just to combine – don’t overmix or it will get tough.
Spoon the mixture into the cases to about three quarters full. Bake for 20 minutes until well risen. Loosen the edges with a round-bladed knife, let them sit in the tins for a few minutes, then lift out and cool on a wire rack.
For the topping, make two piping bags out of greaseproof paper (or cut the ends off two clean plastic bags). Break the dark and white chocolate into separate bowls and melt in the microwave on Medium for 2 minutes (or over a pan as in step 1). Put 2 spoonfuls of dark chocolate in one bag and the same of white chocolate in the other.
Working with one muffin at a time, spread with dark chocolate from the bowl, letting it run down a bit, then pipe four concentric circles of white chocolate on top. Using a small skewer, drag through the circles at regular intervals, from the centre to the edge, to create a cobweb effect. Repeat with four more muffins. On the remaining five, spread over the white chocolate and decorate with the dark. Best eaten the day they’re made – even better while the chocolate’s soft.Some people ponder about how Halloween was created well I have read that long, long, long ago Witches use to come to peoples houses and said '' You will either give me a lovely, yummy treat or I will trick you.'' You people might not believe me but I have read it in a myth.
This is a recipe, not a story. Just to let you know! I hope you have a wonderful time making these Spider web cupcakes.
