Bonfire Night Baking Ideas
Here at Little Secrets Clothing we love bonfire night, and that means firework displays, toasty bonfires, melting marshmallows by the bonfire, sticky toffee apples and more scrumptious food!
The tradition of Bonfire Night dates back to 1605, when Guy (Guido) Fawkes was part of something called the Gunpowder Plot. This was a plan to blow up King James I and his government on 5 November.
However Guy's plot was rumbled, and he and his supporters were arrested and executed.
These days we remember the event by setting off fireworks and lighting bonfires to burn the 'Guy' - a kind of dummy figure that represents Fawkes.
To start off the list of treats we have;
S'mores dips, a personal favourite with Nutella instead of chocolate, it's a sized-up, super chocolatey twist on the classic American campfire treat, you're missing out if you haven't tried it yet! Find the recipe here. We also think you should try some banoffee s'mores, banana, marshmallow fluff, lots and lots of melted Nutella and some toffee.
Nothing beats the crunch of a toffee apple on a crisp autumnal evening, and these taste so much better than shop bought. All you need is; 8 Granny Smith apples
400g golden caster sugar, 1 tsp vinegar, 4 tbsp golden syrup.
Buffalo hot dogs!! Perfect for movie nights in or to take to the bonfire party. Take yours to the next level with some cheese, hot sauce, pork scratchings sprinkled on top, crispy fried onions and some mayo. You won't regret giving it a try!
Cheesy bonfire bread is another love of ours, perfect fun to make with the kids, all you need is; 200g wholemeal flour 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp salt,1 tsp caster sugar,25g butter melted, 300ml milk at room temperature, 175g cheddar coarsely grated,3 tbsp pumpkin, seeds, 85g ready-roasted pepper from a jar, drained and chopped.
