Make sure there is plenty of space between them as they will rise.

Leave the pan in a warm place for half an hour to let them rise.

Step 5 – Bake the worms

Once the worms have risen you can put them in the oven.

Small worms will only take around 15-20 minutes to cook, larger shapes will need longer.

When the worms are cooked take them out of the oven and let them cool either on a plate or a wire rack.
