Tiramisu ice cream

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, September 26, 2020, In : desserts 


When I see tiramisu on a menu, I am compelled to order it! The there's nothing quite like a creamy, coffee, spongey dessert to end your meal. This healthy ice cream version is tiramisu reimagined, in a good way. It's from Jessica Sepel's Living the Healthy Life (Macmillan, 2017)

2 frozen bananas

1 tbsp tahini

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp instant coffee/espresso/Inka

1 tbsp cacao powder

pinch sea salt

1 c coconut cream or milk

few ice cubes, optional


crushed roasted peanuts and chocolate flakes to garnish

Life-changing crackers

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, September 25, 2020, In : savoury 

Sarah Britton of My New Roots created the life-changing bread, using only seeds and psyllium. Here's the cracker version from Super Loaves & Simple Treats by Melissa Sharp (PK, 2017). They go so well with all kinds of sweet or savoury toppings, or just by themselves.

1/2 c sunflower seeds
1/3 c flaxseeds
1/4 c hazelnuts
3/4 c oats
2 tsp chia seeds
3 tbsp psyllium

2/3 c water
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp honey

Yoghurt crackers

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, September 19, 2020, In : savoury 

It's a cliche but these ARE easy and quick to make and will have you crunching in no time. Quicker than going out to buy crackers from the shop.

2 1/2 tbsp milk of choice

2 tsp sea salt

1/3 c olive oil

1-2 tbsp water, as needed

3-4 tbsp olive oil for drizzling

3-4 tbsp seeds of choice (I used fennel, caraway and sesame)


In a bowl mix the flour, yoghurt, milk, salt and oil into a dough. You can do this in a food processor or...

Black Forest gateau

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, In : big cakes 


Here's another excellent vegan chocolate cake (another one here) zhujed up with some cherries in the chocolate ganache. A 3-tiered cake means business! Thanks to Nadia Lim for the foolproof recipe. She says you can use any liquid but coffee gives more depth and richness to the cake.

2 1/2 c self-raising flour or plain flour with 3 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 c cocoa

1 1/2 c sugar (I used coconut)

1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt

2 c coffee, water or milk (I used decaffeinated coffee)

2 tsp vanilla extract...

Coffee cardamom cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, In : cookies 

The flavours here are very popular in the Scandinavian countries - it's a sophisticated biscuit. I was surprised that our 8-year-old liked them too; I used decaf coffee to mitigate any caffeine effects!


Makes about 24

2 c flour

1 tbsp ground espresso or 2 tsp instant coffee

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp cardamom

pinch sea salt

115g butter

1/2 c soft brown sugar

1/4 c sugar (I used coconut)

1 egg

1 1/2 tbsp molasses

1 tsp vanilla extract


Glaze:

1/2 egg white (15g)

3/4 c icing sugar

1 1/2 tsp melted butter

1-2 tsp war...

Healthy florentines

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, September 7, 2020, In : sweets 

A refined-sugar-free treat for any time of the day. I think the thinness of a florentine is the secret to its success, so use flaked or slivered almonds. Pepitas and oats add extra nutrition.


Makes about 25

1/2 c rolled oats

1/3 c almonds

1/3 c finely chopped walnuts

1/3 c pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/3 c finely chopped apple-sweetened cranberries (I didn't have any so used sulphur-free apricots. Other tangy dried fruit would work well too, such as cherries or blueberries)

1 tsp mixed spice (or a mix o...

Lavender and white chocolate sables

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, September 6, 2020, In : cookies 

Sablés are just French versions of shortbread, i.e. very buttery and sugary! The lavender here is a subtle fragrance that complements the white chocolate well. A lovely crisp biscuit perfect with a cuppa.

Makes about 40
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp ground culinary lavender
2 1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
225 g unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into pieces (omit salt if you use salted butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
115g white chocolate, finely chopped

Put sugar and lavender in a bowl of a stand mixer or foo...
