Waffles

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, June 9, 2019, In : desserts 

I've usually had to whisk egg whites separately to get fluffly waffles. No more! Thanks to GraceGoodEats I whipped these up super quick. My only regret was that I didn't do a double batch to freeze some for later.

2 c flour (I used spelt)
4 tbsp natural unrefined sweetener (eg coconut sugar, rapadura, maple syrup)
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 c milk (I used rice)
85g melted butter (or non-dairy spread or vegetable oil)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle iron. Mix all ...

Vegan neapolitan ice cream

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, December 17, 2018, In : desserts 


This is my go-to recipe for dairy-free ice cream. I went all out and made three kinds for neaopolitan thrills.

Vanilla ice cream:
2 cans coconut cream
1 tsp vanilla extract (use vanilla bean paste for extra yummy flavour and looks)
1/4 c maple or rice syrup
pinch salt

Blitz all the ingredients in a blender then transfer to an ice cream maker and churn for 10-15 min. Pour into a litre container and freeze. If you don't have an ice cream maker you can just freeze for a couple of hours then blitz agai...

Forgotten cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, May 10, 2018, In : cookies 

Forgotten cookies are actually super easy meringues - you just leave in a turned-off oven overnight and they should be crisp by the morning. Mine weren't unfortunately, I think I preheated the oven too low. If this happens you can just bake at 60-70C for an hour or so until meringues are dried or put in a dehydrator. The recipe is adapted from Healthy Food Guide. You can leave plain or flavour with mint and strawberry. It's my no. 6 of 26 alphabetical bakes!

Makes 20-15

Berry pinwheel cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, In : cookies 

These make a nice change from the usual chocolate/vanilla pinwheels. It was a special request from the 5-year-old. I used raspberry powder as that's what I had in the pantry, but any berry flavour will work well - strawberry, cherry, blueberry.

250g butter or vegan butter
1 c caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-4 c flour (I used spelt)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp raspberry/strawberry Fresh As powder
few drops red food colouring or beetroot juice

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until pale a...

Chocolate sponge

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, In : big cakes 

Made with love for our wedding anniversary, 12.12. The keys to a light sponge are: no butter, separate the eggs and 50% cornflour.

3 eggs 
110g sugar (I used powdered coconut sugar)
60g flour (I used organic spelt)
60g cornflour
2 tbsp dutch cocoa
1 tsp baking powder

For the filling:
1 can coconut cream that's been refrigerated for at least 24 hours
1 tsp rice malt syrup
cut strawberries
strawberry jam if desired (I use a sugar-free brand, or make your own chia jam)

Line 2 sponge tins with baking paper a...

Trio of bliss balls - chocolate, strawberry, cookie dough

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, November 3, 2017, In : sweets 

It all started with our daughter wanting chocolate chip cookies. I decided to make healthy chocolate chip cookie bliss balls and found this easy recipe from Wholefood Simply. Then I decided to make my own recipes using different sweeteners, flavours and flours, but all still raw, whole, organic, sugar and gluten free.

Makes about 24
2 c rolled oats
1/3 c tahini
2 tbsp honey or rice syrup
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch salt
1/3 c dark chocolate chips
Blitz the oats in a ...

Chocolate and strawberry chia jam cups

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, In : sweets 

It's great to make your own chocolate and jam as you can control the sweetness and get your kids to get used to less sugary foods. Grown-ups will like these too, of course!

Make the jam first by blitzing in a blender 1 c strawberries or other berries, 2 tbsp water, 2 tbsp brown rice syrup and 2 tbsp chia seeds. Transfer to a small bowl and heat over medium heat until mixture starts to bubble. Cook for 3-5 minutes, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and c...

Chocolate strawberry bran muffins

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.

125ml boiling water
2 tsp vanilla extract

Raw chocolate mousse tart by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, December 8, 2012, In : desserts 


I am making more raw goodies lately - maybe I should change this website to Unbake Club?! Thank you Nicola W for alerting me to this delicious raw, GF, DF, sugar-free choc mousse recipe. Justin and I gobbled it all up in 2 days. I had a little bit of crust left over so I made them into patties, dehydrated them and ate them as snacks.

2 c LSA (1 c flax seeds, 1/2 c sunflower seeds, 1/2 c almonds)
1 c macadamia nuts (I used cashews)
1/2 tsp sea salt
6 large Medjool dates (I used some soaked raisins...

Chocolate pavlova by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, October 5, 2012, In : desserts 

After making Nigella's semifreddo with 4 egg yolks, I had to make something with the whites - thank God for pavlova! And this chocolate version rocks! I made it in the evening but waited till the next morning when I had the toppings to photograph it, and ended up having pav for breakfast. Yes!

This recipe is shamelessly cut and pasted from Nigella:

6 medium egg whites (I used 4)

300 grams caster sugar (I used 200g for 4 whites)

3 tablespoon(s) cocoa powder sieved

1 teaspoo...
