Pears poached in red wine

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, June 28, 2021, In : desserts 

For some reason we get given bottles of red wine. Funny that, cos we don't drink! So I have to resort to cooking with wine, which I don't mind, specially when it comes to pears and ice cream. Wine reduces down nicely to a thick sweet syrup.

4 beurre bosc pears

2 c red wine

1/2 c coconut sugar

1 orange peeled into strips

juice of 1 orange

1 cinnamon stick

2 star anise

6 whole cloves

1 tsp vanilla extract or sliced vanilla pod 


Place all the ingredients except the pears into a small saucepan and bring to...

Chocolate orange mousse

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, June 10, 2021, In : desserts 

This mousse couldn't be easier: melt the chocolate, whisk the aquafaba and mix; refrigerate then tszuj it up with toppings. Strangely, my husband is averse to chocolate and orange together. I found this out when I got him a classic Terry's Chocolate Orange for Xmas. The look of disappointment on his face when he opened the wrapping! Followed by the joy on mine when I realised I could eat the whole thing myself! So now it's a running joke when I make chocolate-orangey things.


100g chilled water...

Vegan coffee cake with cashew cinnamon icing

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, June 7, 2021, In : big cakes 

Some people call 'coffee cake' any kind of cake that's served with coffee. But this is an actual coffee-flavoured cake that's made with wholefoods and is vegan to boot. Also easy to use gluten-free flour. The coconut sugar gives it a gorgeous dark caramel colour. It's a light, fluffy cake great with a cuppa, of course. It's from Deliciously Ella: A Plant-based Cookbook (Yellow Kite, 2018). 


3 Tbsp instant coffee granules (or strong espresso coffee)

2 Tbsp boiling water

450g flour (I used wholeme...
