Bliss slice

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, In : sweets 

Bliss balls are the easiest cheat sweet. Just bung everything in a food processor and press the button. Start with a base of nuts or seeds, add your dried fruit of choice and bind with sticky sweeteners such as maple syrup, dates, brown rice syrup, or nut butters. It's a good way to use up things that have bene neglected in your pantry.
If you're time constrained or just too lazy to roll into balls, just make into a slice.

200g dried fruit (I used apricots, use whatever mix you like. Get tropic...

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...

Healthy carrot cake

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, June 20, 2020, In : big cakes 


I came across a great book called Natural Baking by Carolin Strothe and Sebastian Keitel (DK, 2019). They use seasonal fruit and vegetables, natural sweeteners and healthier flours in their bakes. I've made many carrot cakes before, but it was nice to include all these wholesome ingredients and feed a large playground playdate with 7 kids and 4 adults.


2 eggs

1/2 c natural liquid sweetener (I used a maple and rice syrup mix)

75ml mild vegetable oil

1/4 tsp black cardamom seeds (or 1/2 tsp ground ...

Hastbullar (Swedish scones)

Swedish hastbullar ("quick buns") are like fancy scones. You can make them without paper cases, but the Swedish like to present their fika nicely.

2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cardamom seeds, crushed (or used ground cardamom)
1/2 c unrefined sugar
100g cold butter, cubed
1/2 c chopped dried fruit (I used apricots, they used figs, anything works well)
1 egg
3/4 c milk

1 egg, beaten
1/4 c chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts) or demerara/raw/turbinado 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...
