Just thought I'd throw in this cool 'ghost showing his guns' that appeared on top of a delicious latte from Cereal Killa in Dominion Rd, Auckland. Their mochaccinos are also excellent as well as their mushrooms on toast, beetroot, walnut salad, eggs bene...

Frances’s espresso pecan cupcakes

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, March 29, 2012, In : slices 


I appropriated this from
Marian Keyes' espresso and walnut cake recipe in her latest book Saved by Cake. It's a great beginner's baking book with tips and witty repartee from Marian. She says baking didn't cure her depression but helped her along her way to happiness and peace. In her recipe she uses 2 sandwich tins and puts the icing in between the layers and on top.

50g butter
80ml milk
1 c espresso
2 eggs
225g caster sugar
100ml oil
100g chopped pecans
250g self-r...

Coffee snaps by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, In : cookies 


Coffee and snaps. Two lovely words that go together. So when I saw this recipe on Shirleen’s Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice blog I had to make it (
http://sugarandspice-and-allthingsnice.blogspot.co.nz/2011/03/coffee-snaps_11.html). Shirleen said she had a ‘hankering’ for some cookies – I know exactly how she feels!

125g butter, softened
1 1/4 cups (275g) firmly packed brown sugar [next time I would just use 1 c]
3 teaspoon instant coffee, the stro...

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...
