Louise cake

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, In : slices 

An old-fashioned favourite, probably named after Queen Victoria's daughter Louise. It's called a cake but it's really a traybake slice. I like that it uses the eggs two ways and I've cut back on the sugar and butter from traditional recipes. I've also used sugar-free jam, which is available from supermarkets or you can make your own chia jam.
You can veganise this recipe by using aquafaba instead of egg whites. For the base use dairy-free spread and omit the egg yolks.

125g butter or d...

Garibaldi biscuits

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, March 7, 2019, In : slices 

I never knew these were called Garibaldi biscuits. In my childhood we usually bought them, and they were called Full o' Fruit or Golden Fruit. Surprisingly easy to make - it's just dried fruit sandwiched between layers of pastry. These worked out so well, I'm going to try a cranberry filling next time.

Makes 24 pieces
3/4 c currants or raisins
2 tbsp brandy
1 1/2 c flour (I used wholemeal spelt)
1/4 c caster sugar (I used golden organic and panela)
80g cold butter, chopped
1/3 c milk, appro...
