With Halloween but a month away, it is time to start thinking about what terrifying treats you are going to make. Here I've made three ghoulish mini loafs that children can enjoy for a Halloween party. Based on the brands I used, each slice is about 142 calories.

Preparation Time: 2hrs 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 3 mini loaves or one big loaf

Ingredients
200g self raising white flour
100g golden icing sugar
50g margarine
50g caster sugar
100g dried cranberries
3 limes
1 egg
green food colouring

Method



cranberries


Pour boiling water over the cranberries and leave them to soak for about two hours.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 ༠C/ 160 ༠C fan/350 ༠F/4 Gas.
