Brown sugar sponge with fruit

Posted by Frances Chan on Sunday, March 20, 2022, In : big cakes 

Another versatile recipe from Lazy Baking by Jessica Elliot Dennison (Hardie Grant Books, 2021). Just use whatever seasonal fruit you have on hand. I like a recipe that uses no more than 2 eggs. For some reason I find 3 or more eggcessive! You can use other sugars if you don't have soft brown. Ground coconut sugar will be delicious too. This cake is like a warm hug.

175 g butter or dairy-free spread, softened

150 g soft brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla paste

125 g ground almonds

175 g flour (I used...

Feijoa coconut cake

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, September 2, 2013, In : big cakes 

By Ginny
I accidentally defrosted some (pureed, with the skin on) feijoas, and had to make use of them. The 1.5 cup measure worked perfectly with this loaf... I drastically reduced the amount of sugar in the original recipe, and it was still really sweet. I'll indicate the original below. It's definitely more a cake than a bread, and very yummy - the nicest of all the feijoa coconut loaves I've made. Leaving the feijoa skins on gives it a very subtle edge, which I like (and it's so much...

Frances's feijoa coconut loaf

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, May 27, 2013, In : big cakes 

I made these for my sister's birthday. One has lemon icing and one has chocolate - both good! It is Susan Fleichl's recipe in A Treasury of New Zealand Baking (Random House, 2009). What a delicious way to use the hordes of feijoas we get in autumn. I like that it uses oil instead of butter and you just mix it all together.

460g flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
3 eggs
420 g caster sugar
330ml vegetable oil
30ml vanilla essence
125ml buttermilk (I used yoghurt)
1 1/2 c feijoas, peel...

Ginny's feijoa clafoutis

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, In : desserts 

I adapted the recipe from the feijoa tart recipe I found here:

2 large eggs
150g white sugar
100g butter
zest of 1 lime (or more to taste)
approx 1.5cm piece of fresh ginger, grated (less or more to taste)
150 ml milk
175g flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
enough sliced fruit to cover the surface of the tart - I just topped the feijoas and cut them in half. Leaving the skins on gives a tartness to the final tart (apt, in this case!)
  1. Whisk...

Dark chocolate and feijoa cake by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, May 23, 2011, In : big cakes 

This is my attempt at Alessandra Zecchini's chocolate and fig cake. She used fresh figs, which looked beautiful and pinky, but I didn't have any on hand. The feijoas aren't so aesthetically pleasing but it still tasted good; the tart feijoa contrasts well with the chocolate.

250 g bar of Whittaker's Dark Ghana Chocolate
100 g butter
3 eggs, whites beaten into stiff peaks
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
3 tbs self raising flour
10 feijoas peeled and cut in half

Frances's lime shortbread with feijoa zest

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : cookies 

What a surprise it was to find an email in the Bake Club mail box from Christoph Vogel from The Aucklander saying he would like to do a story about Bake Club! It was the day before I was going to the US for a month so I quickly answered some questions via email. Christophe also wanted a pic. I thought it would look much better if I actually had some baking in front of me so after dinner that night I made the quickest batch of shortbread ever. But because I was going away ...
