Quick mini muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, In : small cakes 

These are the quickest and easiest muffins I've made. Only 6 ingredients plus your choice of flavour. With an hour to go before we went visiting, these were mixed and baked in no time. I also made a runny icing with icing sugar and lemon juice to drizzle over, topped with sprinkles for extra child-friendliness. Mini muffins only take 5-7 min to bake, so be careful not to overbake or else it might just taste like a rubber ball.

Makes about 36 mini muffins
200g almond flour/meal (or mix of 100g a...

Gingerbread

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, In : small cakes 

The Moosewood Cookbook was one of the first vegetarian books I ever bought when I stopped eating meat. It was a revelation. I've never had the pleasure of going to their restaurant ... yet. This is their gingerbread recipe which they love because it has easy cup or half-cup measurements. DItto for me. Although I did find it a bit molassesy; I'll use less next time. I indulged the top with cream cheese lemony icing.
2 eggs
1/2 c sour cream (I used yoghurt)
1/2 c molasses (I'd use 1/4 or 1/3)

Vegan vanilla cupcakes

This is BabyCakes NYC's recipe. I tried to be as true to her recipe as I could but I didn't have all the ingreds and they turned out a bit heavy cos I didn't put enough hot water in. I had some besan flour I wanted to use up so that was good.

Chocolate strawberry bran muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, In : small cakes 

With the abundance of strawberries at the moment I wanted to make a healthy combination of strawberries and chocolate. This is a mixture of my recent strawberry muffins and the last post, chocolate olive oil cake. Macerating the strawberries first in balsamic vinegar really adds depth to the flavour.

Strawberry muffins

Brilliant breakfast muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, November 30, 2015, In : small cakes 

My little baby girl used to love porridge - one of her first words, one of her daily favourite foods. But at 3 and a half she's a bit more picky and some days breakfast is a scant affair and I'm left to eat the porridge she didn't touch. As I was pondering this dilemma I came across Nadia Lim's super breakfast muffins in her Good Food Cook Book (Random House, 2013). I used her recipe as a base but reduced the sugar content by 1 whole cup; I don't think you need it with the dates and banana in...

Pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, In : small cakes 

Sorry about the crap photo. Our daughter gobbled them all up and only two were left when I remembered to take the photo. I love hiding vegetables in recipes like this, toddlers are non the wiser.

This is from Sally's Baking Addiction. From this basic recipe you can add other things you may have in the pantry - nuts, dried fruit, granola topping - go crazy. A cream cheese icing would be rather nice too. Here's another pumpkin recipe and cream cheese icing recipe on Bake Club.

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, June 7, 2015, In : small cakes 

This is a really easy, quick recipe from a sugar-free website that made 36 mini muffins - ideal to take to preschool to celebrate our daughter's 3rd birthday. She requested the 'frozen' icing. I made it out of butter, rice syrup, vanilla and a couple of drops of blue food colouring, and sprinkled with coconut.

Peach crumble muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, In : small cakes 

By Frances
This recipe is adapted from Sarah Wilson's Not-quite-apple-crumble muffins in I Quit Sugar For Life (Pan Macmillan Australia, 2014). She uses chokos as they are very low in fructose but she also recommends apples or peaches, which have about a quarter of the fructose of apples (learn something every day!). They really do taste a bit like a fruit crumble. Went down well with a 2 year old and 5 year old too so it gets the thumbs up.

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, June 22, 2014, In : small cakes 

By Frances
Cheap pumpkins! So this week I made pumpkin soup, pumpkin granola bars, pumpkin muffins, and froze a batch of pumpkin puree. These muffins are an easy alternative to the carrot version. The cream cheese icing really sets it off.

Vegan double chocolate banana muffins

Found a great website called egglesscooking.com as I wanted to do some egg-free baking for our coffee group, as one of the toddlers has an allergy. Easy to make these vegan recipes sugar-free too. I adapted this vegan double chocolate banana muffin recipe.

Tamarind, date and sour cherry muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, April 5, 2014, In : small cakes 

By Frances

 

I started out wanting to make lemon poppyseed muffins. A quick flick to the index of Marian Keyes’ Saved By Cake (Penguin, 2012) didn’t have what I wanted but I saw these muffins under M - mmm, tamarind, interesting. Indeed, Marian says tamarind is her ‘thing’ and these muffins have a ‘wonderfully intriguing sourness’. I used cranberries instead of sour cherries but they still tasted yummy and tangy.

Chocolate, cranberry and honey muffins for National Honey Week

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, November 23, 2013, In : small cakes 

By Frances

This is for the ‘Cook Something Yummy With Honey’ competition for the inaugural National Honey Week 25 Nov – 2 December. I read about it on Alessandra Zecchini’s blog. This year’s hero honey is manuka – yummmmm.  I just made up this recipe with what I had in the pantry. I like to contrast the richness of chocolate flavour with the tartness of a fruit such as cranberry. Any fresh or dried berry would be equally delicious – raspberry is a favourite. I...

Chocolate lamington cupcakes

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, In : small cakes 

By Ginny
 I wanted to make some chocolate cupcakes, and got inspired to try and Little & Friday cake recipe... The recipe is for two 23cm cakes, so I used a 2/5 version to make 12 small/regular size cupcakes (I would have halved it, but 2.5 eggs was tricky), but I've put the full recipe below. Given that it's dense and moist, I think the size is fine... (the cake recipe itself involves a sugar syrup but I didn't do this for the cupcakes)

Jumble muffins

I've called these jumble muffins cos they're just a jumble of whatever I had to hand in an effort to make my daughter some quick mini muffins that are free of gluten and sugar. We're not GF but it's good to have some food without.

Frances makes oaty muffins with stevia

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, June 24, 2013, In : small cakes 

I wanted to make a sugar-free snack for my 1-year-old that's freezable too. So I adapted a couple of recipes to make this jumble of mini muffins. I used powdered stevia, which has an acquired taste - it's also green. I think stevia would work best in chocolate baking to disguise the colour. I'm entering this recipe into this month's Sweet New Zealand, hosted by Couscous & Consciousness.

Ginny's macaroon madness!

Raspberry macaroons
This is an easy addition to the basic macaroon recipe (http://bakeclub.yolasite.com/index/coconut-macaroons-by-ginny), and offers a useful way to use up egg whites - e.g., if making lavender bars or rosemary salty-sweet shortbread.

2 cups coconut
2 egg whites
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup freeze-dried raspberries

heat oven to 180C

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, October 14, 2012, In : small cakes 

I saw rainbow cupcakes in a recent Herald food section and was inspired to try it out. For some reason I forgot to follow the actual rainbow colour sequence (ROYGBIV) but they look pretty cool anyway, I thought. The oil in the recipe helps keep the cakes moist as I took them to a morning tea the following day.
I made double this recipe, which made 12 small cupcakes and 8 bigger ones.

Frances makes Nigella's macaroons

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, November 11, 2011, In : small cakes 

These turned out pretty good - firm on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Preheat the oven to 200 C.

In a bowl mix together:
200g ground almonds
1 cup of caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cardamon
2 egg whites

You can use a mixer but just a fork or spoon does fine. My paste was a bit gloopy so I added some rice flour. Drop teaspoon fulls onto a greased baking sheet. Leave room for spreading. Press a blanched or sliver of almond on the top of each macaroon, bake for 10 minutes.

I was inspired by the most delicious ones in Dizengoff, Ponsonby Rd (which they spoil by incuding sultanas!)...
I used this recipe at Taste but adapted it thus, for no particular reason other than that I wanted to use up some different ingredients:

Frances's first macarons - rustic as!

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, December 28, 2010, In : small cakes 

Here they are, my first attempt at the fancy French macarons. They look pretty rustic with their cracked surfaces. I didn't have time to leave them for 20 mins before baking, hence the crackling, but you know what - I like this look. And it didn't affect the taste, it was still an intense sugary buttery mouthful. I followed the same recipe as Ginny used except I used lemon instead of lime and only put basil in the filling. Not as tangy but I still have plenty of ground almonds so will be mak...
