Hastbullar (Swedish scones)

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, In : small cakes

2 tsp cardamom seeds, crushed (or used ground cardamom)
1/2 c unrefined sugar

Quick chocolate hearts

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, April 13, 2018, In : sweets 

There are a few recipes for homemade chocolate on Bake Club. I've experimented and tweaked amounts many times and have found this one works best for me if I want to make hard chocolate as it's easy to remember and measure. You can use any size moulds you like. I wanted generous servings filled with a nut/fruit mix so I used heart-shaped silicon muffin moulds. The servings weigh around 40-50g each. The good thing about chocolate is that if you make any surplus to needs you can just store in an...

Chocolate mendiants

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, October 22, 2016, In : sweets 

Chocolate mendiants are traditional French sweets during Christmas time. The chocolate discs are studded with nuts and fruit to represent the four monastic orders of the church - usually raisins, figs, hazelnuts and almonds. In our household, however, I make chocolate treats all year round. These ones are decorated with goji berries and coconut, apricots and almonds, pumpkin seeds and ginger, and mini marshmallows. Just go crazy with your toppings...

Chocolate apricot cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, In : cookies 

This easy recipe is adapted from Healthy Food Guide. From this base you can make many variations of cookie – plain, with nuts, with coconut, oats, other dried fruit, spices. I like that it adds LSA to sneak in an extra nutrient punch.

100g butter
½ c natural sweetener (I used rapadura sugar and honey)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
1 ¼ c flour (I used spelt)
¼ c Dutch cocoa powder (Dutch process cocoa gives a fudgier, denser flavour but natural is fine too. Here's an...

Orange & apricot cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, January 15, 2016, In : desserts 

Thank you Emily Rose, who wrote Have Your Cake (Five Mile Press, 2011). Her recipes have "no butter, no white flour, no added sugar". She uses wholemeal flour, rice bran oil and honey. I prefer spelt, coconut oil and rice malt syrup so have substituted with these and results were good!
Makes 16-20 cookies
1 c spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 c dessicated coconut
1/3 c rolled oats (have also used buckinis)
1/2 c coconut oil, softened (or rice bran oil)
1/2 c rice malt syrup (or honey)

Apricot almond muesli bars

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, November 15, 2015, In : slices 

This is another one from Little Bird. Apricots, almonds and sesame are a winning combination and the addition of lemon zest makes it sing. After the mixture set in the fridge I cut them into bars and dehydrated for 24 hours as they advised. But they hardly dried out and were still crumbly so I just put them in an oven at 150C for 15-20 min until golden. If you're a raw purist just keep them in the fridge.

Makes 20 bars

1 c almonds, activated if possible
1/4 c flaxseeds, ground in a cof...

Frances makes apricot and chocolate chip cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, June 14, 2012, In : cookies 

 

This is my first batch of baking since our daughter Tui was born 3 weeks ago. Feels great to get back in the kitchen; baking relaxes me.

I have also recently formed a co-op with some friends to order Ceres organic products wholesale. A 3kg bag of sulphur-free apricots was in my first order so it was a good chance to use some! Apricots and chocolate are always a tasty combination.
