best halloween recipes

Serves: 10

Prep. time: 00:40


  •     1 1/4 cups (185g) plain flour
  •     1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  •     1/2 cup (50g) cocoa powder
  •     3/4 tsp baking powder
  •     1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  •     1 egg, lightly beaten
  •     1/3 cup (80ml) sunflower oil
  •     1 tsp vanilla extract
  •     Black ready-made icing
  •     Silver cachous (optional), to decorate

Orange icing

  •     480g icing sugar, sifted
  •     100g unsalted butter, softened
  •     1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  •     A few drops of orange food colouring


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line 10 holes of a muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a bowl.
  3. Whisk buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla in a separate bowl. Use a spatula to fold into dry ingredients until well combined.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cases. Bake for 25 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool slightly, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, for the icing, beat the sugar, butter and milk in a processor or electric mixer until soft. Add the food colouring a few drops at a time until you reach the desired colour.
  6. Roll out black icing on a sheet of baking paper and use a small cutter to make decorative shapes (we used a cat, and pressed in cachous to make eyes).
  7. Spread orange icing over cakes, then decorate with icing shapes.
