Cherry and Chocolate Mummy Pie #GBBO #PastryWeek

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.

Cumberland No Rum Nicky  #GBBO GBBOBloggers2017

A Cumberland Rum Nicky pie in the true sense contains sticky dates with rum and stem ginger. My version is more child friendly as it contains apples and apple juice, and served alongside a toffee sauce for extra deliciousness!

I took a gamble baking ahead of tonights Great British Bake Off, because having only seen the preview of this weeks episode at the end of last weeks, it was hard to determine exactly what bakes were going to be featured tonight in the Forgotten Bakes theme. Having turned to my fellow #gbbobloggers2017 , we think we identified two of tonights bakes and one ‘could be’ a Cumberland Nicky. I made different version without any alcohol , hence a Cumberland No Rum Nicky.

Curried Chicken Pie #GBBO #GBBOBloggers2017 #GBBO2017

This Curried Chicken Pie is a great way to use up leftover chicken and vegetables from a roast dinner. With just a shortcrust pastry lid, this pie is a tasty dinner for a mid week family meal.

Curried Chicken Pie With it being pie week on the Great British Bake Off this week, it was a great excuse to make a pie for tea and eat some homemade pastry! I do not eat pastry very often because, while blooming’ delicious, ultimately it is not very low in fat/calories and also because my two boys do not eat it. However, I was quite excited to bake a pie this week, and decided to be a bit different and make a Curried Chicken Pie in the hopes that it might make it more interesting for my fussy eaters.  Read More
