Honey bombs

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, July 31, 2020, In : bread 

These warming honey bombs are a cross between a bun and cake - but you don't have to cream the butter and sugar or use yeast. Very convenient. I've discovered Scandi Bites by Trine Hahnemann (Quadrille, 2019) and will be making a few of her recipes.

Makes 12-16
150g honey
150g/3/4 c soft brown sugar (I used coconut sugar)
150g butter
4 small eggs or 3 large eggs
3 c flour (I used spelt)
2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp ground cloves
150g mixed peel (I used mixed fruit)

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease...

Churros cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, In : cookies 

Churros as cookies? Yes please! A light biscuit with cinnamon and brown sugar - an exact crispy version of churros doughnuts. They're ideal for ice cream sandwiches too! I saw this recipe on one of Haylie Duff's cooking programmes. Toasting the flour first adds a nutty depth to the dough. I used coconut sugar to give a dark, caramel taste and look.

Makes about 36
2 3/4 c flour (I used spelt)
225g butter, room temperature
1 c sugar (I used coconut)
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp milk (I used rice)
1 t...

Peanut butter & jam brownie

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, July 27, 2020, In : slices 

This is the most dense, fudgey, gooey brownie I've ever attempted. It will last a while, as you only need a small slice to accompany your cuppa. The jam and berries really help to lighten the brownie with a bit of tartness. It's from Bosh! by Henry Firth and Ian Theasby (HQ, 2018) but I've reduced the quantities of sugar and cocoa.

2 3/4 c flour (I used spelt)
2 1/2 c coconut sugar (or muscovado)
1 1/2 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c peanut butter, runny
220ml water
220ml vegetabl...

Vegan chocolate cake

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, July 10, 2020, In : big cakes 

A very similar riff to my go-to chocolate ganache cake. This recipe uses larger quantities so will easily fill 2 sponge tins and once you lavish with ganache it's makes a tall and impressive cake! Thanks to Fearne Cotton's Cook Happy Cook Healthy (Orion Publishing, 2016).

300g spelt flour
100g cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
150g coconut oil, melted
350g natural liquid sweetener (I used brown rice syrup, you can use maple or honey)
2 tsp vanilla extract
460ml no...
