Caraway crisps

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, December 6, 2015, In : cookies 

Caraway seeds. Acquired taste. Caraway crisps. Not my best work. I think these biscuits have an identity crisis. They are in the Savoury chapter of High Tea (Viking, 2014) but the recipe included 1/4 c sugar, salt and a sprinkling of salt and caraway. The butter and cream cheese makes a very rich combination. The sweet-savoury taste would not be to everyone's liking, but my husband gobbled quite a few after being wary at first!
120g softened butter
1 c cream cheese
1/4 c cup sugar

Pumpkin spice muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, June 22, 2014, In : small cakes 

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.
This recipe is adapted from The Pioneer Woman.

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

Mandarin cake with cream cheese icing

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, June 5, 2014, In : big cakes

Another goodie from Julie Le Clerc's Favourite Cakes. It's great the way it uses whole mandarins. I added cream cheese icing and decorated it with almond praline.

6 mandarins (600g) or oranges
6 eggs
1 c sugar (I used rice malt syrup)
1 c dessicated coconut
2 c ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 160C. Grease a 22cm cake tin and lightly dust with flour. Coarsely chop mandarins, including the skin but removing any pips, and place in a saucepan with enough water to cover.

Frances’s first cheescake - roasted banana cheesecake

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, In : desserts 


We recently visited the Green Snapper Café in Colville, Coromandel, on our babymoon, and had a cosy time sitting by the roaring fire looking out to the deserted road outside, reading the weekend paper and being thankful for living in paradise. We had a good ol’ seafood chowder and toasted sammie. Coffee was great. They had a lots of nice-looking cakes on the bench but then the blackboard special caught my eye – roasted banana cheesecake. Three magical words that go so...

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : big cakes
