Buckwheat nut crackers

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, February 11, 2017, In : savoury 

Love making my own crackers! Buckwheat flour works really well in combination with nuts of your choice for more nutrients. You can also grind sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

1 c ground nuts (I used walnuts and cashews)
1 tsp salt
3 tsp sesame seeds
1/4 c oil
up to 1/2 c water
seasonings of choice - e.g. pepper, cumin, paprika

Preheat oven to 175C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Buckwheat waffles

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, October 29, 2016, In : desserts 

For some reason I had always shied away from using 100% buckwheat flour in a recipe but I gave this a go to expand my repertoire for my gf friends. These turned out so soft with a crisp outside - perfect waffles.
Makes 7 to feed about 3 people
1 c buckwheat flour
1 Tbs rapadura sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

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...

Raw caramel slice no. 3

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, November 18, 2013, In : slices 

By Frances
On my quest to find the perfect raw caramel slice, here is version no. 3 from Keilanaskye. The caramel part is particularly good - just tahini and maple syrup really. For the base I used sunflower seeds and activated buckwheat (buckinis) instead of cashews (just over 1/2 c each). I find the buckwheat gives a nice crunch that I really like.
I'm going to enter this in November's Sweet NZ monthly blog event, hosted by Toast.

For the base:
1 1/2 cups raw, organic cashews (pre-soaked for...

Frances's raw lemon cheesecake

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, In : desserts 

After several visits to Little Bird unbakery in Kingsland, I thought I'd try making my own raw cheesecake. Turned out rather well, I thought! The recipe is from a Pure Wellbeing newsletter.
I'm entering this in July's Sweet New Zealand, hosted by Homegrown Kitchen.


The Base
1 C almonds
1 C buckwheat
1/2 C dates (soak in water to soften first)
Dash coconut oil/pinch salt

Food process (pulse) the nuts and buckwheat leaving them a little chunky. Add the dates & coconut oil till the mix just b...

Frances makes apple spice granola

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

This recipe is from Chef Rene who is a raw food specialist. I went to a raw chocolate workshop of his once and make his super fudge recipe often. The granola is so crunchy and tasty, goes well with yoghurt or rice milk or apple juice. Sometimes I just eat little handfuls from the jar. I have never used buckwheat groats before so it was a new experience for me. Next time I might add coconut threads or nutmeg. Thanks Chef Rene!

  • 1 c pecans or walnut pieces, soaked 10-12 hours (I used walnuts and ...

Espresso banana muffins by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, February 5, 2011, In : small cakes 

This is the first recipe I have tried from my latest Amazon purchase, Super Natural Cooking by Heidi Swanson. Mine were a little misshapen as I didn't have a muffin tray at the time. That subtle coffee flavour is very nice. Lovely with a cuppa.

2 c flour ( I used rice and buckwheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/4 c chopped nuts (I used hazels and pistachios, Heidi used walnuts)
1 Tbs fine espresso powder
6 Tbs unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 c natural cane sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla...

Frances satisfies craving for gingernuts

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, November 19, 2010, In : cookies 


Contentment is: blogging on Bake Club while dunking homemade gingernuts into a big mug of peppermint tea. Don’t they look cute in my kilt-shaped biscuit tin?! I feel like a decidedly flat-chested Asian version of Nigella Dawson tapping away at my laptop, extolling the virtues of homebaking with a smug look on my face.

But there is a genuine reason for my domestic bliss – our oven has finally been fixed, six months after moving into our house! I have been surviving with ...
