Did everyone have a fun Halloween? I spent mine watching the original Evil Dead, and though blood and gore (not to mention dodgy pre-CGI special effects) don't really scare me I can see why it has become so well known. I also carved a pumpkin in the least imaginative way possible:
Anyway, I digress. Today is the start of a new month, and that means it's time for a new Baking With Spirit challenge!
Though we've not really seen much cold yet and have been thoroughly eased into the autumnal weather, in my experience November is where things kick off and the winter coats come out from hibernation. In preparation for this, I suggest we bake with a spirit which has been used throughout its history for warming you from the insides (not to mention 'curing' all sorts of ailments): whisky.
There are plenty of recipes out there that involve whisky, but my favourites include Greek Yoghurt & Honey Cake from Sharky Oven Gloves (I have made this before and it tastes really good), Campfire Cocktail S'Mores Bars from Bake It With Booze and Bourbon Banana Pudding Cheesecake from The Candid Appetite. Go crazy!
Want to enter? Just follow the rules below (or see a full set here):
- Bake or cook something food-related containing whisky.
