Gingerbread cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, In : cookies 

Even though I'm not a Christmassy person, I do like to make gingerbread and have a go at icing. I don't have much flair, as you can see, but the biscuits taste fine anyway.

1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch sea salt

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp allspice (or 1/2 tsp each cloves, nutmeg)
250g butter at room temperature
1 1/4 c brown sugar

Chocolate cashew truffles

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, December 12, 2019, In : sweets 

First attempt - used stick blender and only did one coat of chocolate - very nice


Second attempt - doubled the recipe, used Omniblend, double coat of chocolate - extremely nice

Yum - guilt-free treats that are full of nutrients. Everything tastes better coated in homemade chocolate, right? A stick blender is best for this recipe. I tried processing the filling in my Omniblend but there wasn't enough mixture for the blades to mix.

Makes 14
100g cashews
3 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp date syrup
1 tbsp caca...

Honey maca ice cream

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, December 5, 2019, In : desserts 

I decided to make a dairy-free ice cream from scratch, and that included the almond milk. The xanthan gum really helps to make the ice cream smooth and creamy. When you make almond milk you have almond pulp left over, so I'll also post two recipes to use up the almond pulp.

200g almonds
500ml water
1/2 c honey
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
1 tsp xanthan gum

If you have an ice cream make, put the bowl in the freezer for at least 24 hours.
Soak the almonds in a bowl of water for at l...
