“merry meet, i’m arabella! Please make yourself right at home. i’m sure you notice the scent of nutmeg, as I’ve just fixed some samhain soul cakes. hear the bubbling cauldron? that’s my very own potion, the full moon howler. it’s best brewed under the light of a full moon, and beguiles the one who consumes into a state of relaxation so they can set bold intentions for the coming season.”

ready to get your kitchen simmering with autumn spices & your cauldron bubbling? enjoy these recipes below at any time, but we highly recommend the traditional practice of making soul cakes on samhain, and why not sip on a howler while it bakes?

samhain soul cakes

Gather butter, sugar, a pound of flour, milk, the yolks of three eggs, a dash of pumpkin spices like nutmeg & cinnamon, optional currants, cranberry raisins, pecans, etc.

Pre-heat oven to 375F. Cream the 6 oz. butter and 6 oz. sugar together and then beat in the egg yolks, one at a time.

Sift the flour into another bowl with the mixed spice and then add them to the butter, sugar and egg yolk mixture.

Stir in the currants/raisins/pecans and add enough milk to make a soft dough, similar to scones. Roll the dough out and cut out little cakes with a biscuit cutter. 

Mark each cake with a cross and then place them on a greased and/or lined baking sheet. Bake the cakes for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
