Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie #GBBO #PastryWeek

This Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie has been inspired by Halloween for a bit of easy dessert fun. Why not give it a try for your family and enjoy seeing the ‘bloody’ cherry filling ooze out!

It is Pastry week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and while the pies featured on the show will be very ornate and pretty, I just did not have the time last weekend to make a show stopper of a pie. Instead I did find time to make this Halloween inspired Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie.

Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats #GBBO #Patisserieweek

Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats #GBBO #Patisserieweek

These Halloween themed Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats are great fun to serve your children at this time of year. Easy to make and your kids could even help decorate them!

It is semi finals week on the Great British Bake Off and with that brings patisserie week.  Do you have your favourite to win the series yet? Having read up on tonights show, I decided to have a go at making some Choux Buns which is the signature round this week. Rather than make 24 identical choux buns, I thought I would make some Halloween inspired buns instead: Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats. Therefore, I opted to make 10 Mummy Eclairs and 10 Choux Bats (for some reason my recipe made 20 choux buns instead of 24!).

We eat a fair bit of red meat dishes in our house. We do not eat lamb, however, as none of us like it, but I do cook with beef, and occasionally pork mince, to make some easy family meals. While the majority of my red meat dishes are relatively straight forward, because I have a pair of fussy eaters, occasionally I like to make them something a bit different to make mealtime a bit more fun for my boys, especially after a busy week at school. These Lego Burgers are exactly that – fun and tasty. Yet they still contain the nutritional goodness that a pair of growing boys need in their diet.

My boys were big fans of the LEGO movie that came out a couple of years ago. One of their favourite characters from that film was Batman. Therefore, it was no surprise that the Lego super hero was given his own film: The Lego Batman Movie, which is now released as a digital download from today.

Remember, remember – yes it is the 5th of November! The boys are very excited about going to see some fireworks tonight, I am just hoping that the wet weather, that only started yesterday, which is just typical for this time of year after a couple of weeks of perfect dry weather, will stay away so at least we can watch them in the dry!
