Viennese hearts

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, May 20, 2022, In : cookies 

I don't have great piping skills so I tend to avoid doing it. But I made an effort with these biscuits and they turned out alright. Icing and sprinkles will cover all manner of sins. I made mine gluten free and vegan.


Makes 10-15

125 g butter or dairy-free spread, softened

125 g / 1 c flour (if using gluten-free , add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum)

40 g / 1/4 c icing sugar

25 g ground almonds

25 g cornflour

1 tsp vanilla extract, or lemon zest if doing lemon version

1-2 tsp milk


Icing:

1/2 c icing sugar

Souffle cheesecake with Genoise sponge

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, In : big cakes 


Now this is a fancy recipe with multiple stages by Rie in The Happy Home Baker (Marshall Cavendish, 2019). First you have to make a Genoise sponge, which was a first for me, then you bake the cheesecake on top in a bain marie. It uses 8 eggs so it really is a special occasion cake/dessert. Whoever you share it with will be mightily impressed.


Genoise sponge:

4 eggs

140 g granulated sugar

130 g flour

4 tsp milk

8 tsp oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 20 cm tin with baking paper....

Vegemite/Marmite brownies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, May 13, 2022, In : slices 

Are you a Vegemite or Marmite person (or Promite, Our Mate or Bovril)? Or do you detest yeast extract in any shape or form? I go for Vegemite as it has only 2.2 g of sugar per 100g and Marmite has 11.2 g. It is a nutritious spread and adds flavour to brownies. You don't actually taste it, but the depth of flavour is there, and makes for a fudgy, gooey delight.


200 g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

150 g unsalted butter or dairy-free spread

1 Tbsp Vegemite or Marmite or yeast extract

3 eggs

1 c gra...

Chocolate cake

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, In : big cakes 

I do love an easy chocolate cake that you don't need eggs for. Benjamina Ebuehi's recipe from A Good Day to Bake (Hardie Grant, 2022) is vegan and you can make it gluten-free and refined sugar-free too. I added swirls of jam or you could go to town with peanut butter, nuts or dried fruit.


1/2 tsp espresso powder

1 c hot water

1 1/2 c flour of choice

1 c granulated sugar of choice

1/3 c cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 c neutral vegetable oil

1 Tbsp vinegar
