Hastbullar (Swedish scones)

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, In : small cakes 

Swedish hastbullar ("quick buns") are like fancy scones. You can make them without paper cases, but the Swedish like to present their fika nicely.

Makes 12
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cardamom seeds, crushed (or used ground cardamom)
1/2 c unrefined sugar
100g cold butter, cubed
1/2 c chopped dried fruit (I used apricots, they used figs, anything works well)
1 egg
3/4 c milk

For the topping:
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts) or demerara/raw/turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 220C. L...

Havreflarn (oat thins)

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, August 25, 2019, In : cookies 

Here's a healthy twist on a classic Swedish havreflarn (thin oat biscuits). I've used banana instead of sugar and added toppings for variety. Sometimes chocolate is sandwiched in between 2 biscuits; I've just spread one side with chocolate, like a chocolate digestive.

Makes around 20
2 c rolled oats
2 bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (optional)
toppings if desired: threaded coconut, black sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds
125g dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 175...

Chokladbollar (chocolate balls)

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, August 23, 2019, In : sweets 

I am officially obsessed with fika - the Swedish art of the coffee break. A time to take a break alone or with friends, to reflect and recharge with a coffee (or tea) and something delicious to eat. I'd like to share some of my favourite recipes from Fika by Anna Brones & Johanna Kindvall (Ten Speed Press, 2015). The Swedish chocolate ball is a classic that all bakeries will make. Like most Swedish baked goods, it uses butter and cane sugar. These may look like one of those raw bliss balls ma...

Caramelised banana cake

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, In : big cakes 

I've made this before but it's worth revisiting because it's an impressive upside-down cake - bananas love to be caramelised. 

Caramel topping:
50g butter or dairy-free spread, melted
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
2-3 large bananas, sliced on an angle

Cake batter:
125g butter, softened (I used dairy-free spread this time)
3/4 c organic cane sugar
1 very ripe banana, mashed
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 c self-raising flour (I used spelt and increased baking ...

Vegan carrot cake with non-vegan icing! But you can easily veganise the icing too if you wish. The oil helps to keep this cake moist.
