Lime semolina cake

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, December 15, 2018, In : big cakes 

Eat the pantry! That's my new year resolution. Might as well start today so I used up some semolina and ground almonds and frozen lime zest and juice. Damn nice cake. You can replace the lime with lemon or orange if you have other citrus to use up.

3/4 c caster or golden sugar
zest of a lime
2 eggs
3/4 c fine semolina
1 1/2 c ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 c milk or yoghurt

3/4 c sugar
1/2 c lime juice
1/2 c water
thin slices of lime

Preheat oven to ...

Perfect ginger crunch

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, August 12, 2015, In : slices 

I think I've nailed it with this version of ginger crunch. It's a winning combination of Mama Chan's recipe and Al Brown's mother's recipe. My secret ingredient is buckinis! I made my own by sprouting buckwheat groats then dehydrating overnight until they were dry. They definitely add a special 'crunch' to ginger crunch.

115g butter
1/3 c sugar
1 1/4 c flour (I use spelt)
2 Tbs semolina
1/2 c buckinis
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger

Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 30x20cm slice tin.
Cream butter ...
