Butterhorns

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, July 6, 2021, In : small cakes

pinch salt

3/4 c brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon


Icing:

1 c icing sugar

1 Tbsp butter, melted

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 Tbsp milk or more


Cream the butter and cottage cheese in a bowl. Sift in flour and salt and mix until a dough forms. Wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Pears poached in red wine

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, June 28, 2021, In : desserts 

For some reason we get given bottles of red wine. Funny that, cos we don't drink! So I have to resort to cooking with wine, which I don't mind, specially when it comes to pears and ice cream. Wine reduces down nicely to a thick sweet syrup.

4 beurre bosc pears

2 c red wine

1/2 c coconut sugar

1 orange peeled into strips

juice of 1 orange

1 cinnamon stick

2 star anise

6 whole cloves

1 tsp vanilla extract or sliced vanilla pod 


Place all the ingredients except the pears into a small saucepan and bring to...

Honey bombs

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, July 31, 2020, In : bread 

These warming honey bombs are a cross between a bun and cake - but you don't have to cream the butter and sugar or use yeast. Very convenient. I've discovered Scandi Bites by Trine Hahnemann (Quadrille, 2019) and will be making a few of her recipes.

Makes 12-16
150g honey
150g/3/4 c soft brown sugar (I used coconut sugar)
150g butter
4 small eggs or 3 large eggs
3 c flour (I used spelt)
2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp ground cloves
150g mixed peel (I used mixed fruit)

Churros cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, In : cookies 

Churros as cookies? Yes please! A light biscuit with cinnamon and brown sugar - an exact crispy version of churros doughnuts. They're ideal for ice cream sandwiches too! I saw this recipe on one of Haylie Duff's cooking programmes. Toasting the flour first adds a nutty depth to the dough. I used coconut sugar to give a dark, caramel taste and look.

Makes about 36
2 3/4 c flour (I used spelt)
225g butter, room temperature
1 c sugar (I used coconut)
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp milk (I used rice)
1 t...

Graham crackers

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, In : cookies 

Fran Costigan makes a mean oat cinnamon graham cracker, as they call them in the US - very similar to these digestives, which is what we call them in NZ, Australia and the UK. For me, the key is the thinner the better, and coconut sugar adds a lovely caramely crunchiness.

To make ginger snaps, just swap out the cinnamon for ground ginger.

Makes around 30 biscuits

1 1/2 c oat flour, toasted in a 175C oven for 10 min
1/4 c ground coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp se...

Apple crisps

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, June 30, 2017, In : sweets 


After years of experimenting with sugar-free healthy snacks for our daughter, the one thing she will always eat is dried apple slices. Kids love simplicity.
I used a mandoline to cut four apples into 3-4 mm rounds. Cut them whole with skin on, no need to de-core. Put the slices into a bowl and drizzle with a some lemon juice and mix to stop the apples going brown. Place the slices in one layer on dehydrator trays or baking trays. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Dehydrate between 47-70C for ...

Pumpkin spice muffins

By Frances
Cheap pumpkins! So this week I made pumpkin soup, pumpkin granola bars, pumpkin muffins, and froze a batch of pumpkin puree. These muffins are an easy alternative to the carrot version. The cream cheese icing really sets it off.
