Argentinian Halloween

Argentinians don’t normally celebrate Halloween, so I am unaccustomed to this custom. My first attempt at culinary gore is an orange bread with bloody berry guts spilling out from a sugar knife-inflicted wound. Fortunately, the neighbors didn’t call the cops. It’s quite tasty!


Orange Bread:
7/8 cup or 7 oz of butter
1/2 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1 1/3 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup of orange juice
Orange zest

Blood and Guts:
1 bag frozen mixed berries
2/3 cup of powdered sugar
4 tablespoons berry juices

Candy Knife:
1 cup of sugar


Making the Bread
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix butter and sugar.
  3. Add lemon zest.
  4. Slowly add the sifted dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) until doughy.
  5. Place the batter in a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Test with toothpick to see if done. If it comes out clean (no blood), it's ready. Remove from oven and let it cool.

Blood and Guts
  1. Cook the frozen berries until they release some juice.
  2. Strain the berries and set aside.
  3. Add powdered sugar to remaining juice juice and heat for a couple more seconds.
  4. Drip and drizzle the juicy mixture on top of the orange bread to make it bleed.
  5. Use leftover berries as guts to surround the bread wound with.

Sugar Knife
  1. Heat 1 cup of sugar until it turns into a brown liquid.
  2. As soon as it gets syrupy, drizzle onto a piece of parchment paper in the form of a knife. It will harden fast. Watch out it is very hot!
  3. When hardened, stab the knife into the top of the bread.
