Red wine chocolate ganache cake

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, February 5, 2021, In : big cakes 

When we were gifted a bottle of red wine, I managed to sip a thimbleful and my husband had half a glass. What to do next? Use it in cooking, of course. In the last week I've poured a few swigs into lentil casseroles, bean stews, tomato sauce, macerated peaches (my favourite) and this rich chocolate ganache cake.

1 egg

Zucchini double chocolate brownies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, October 19, 2018, In : small cakes 

Z is for zucchini brownies. It's no. 26 of 26 alphabetical bakes! I've made a vegan version before and this is just as easy with a couple of eggs. I added my go-to vegan chocolate ganache, to make it extra special. You can make these in muffin tins or a round cake. Brownies are an excellent quick option for school or office bakes.
This is the end of my A to Z of bakes, a little Instagram project, but now I'll just bake with whatever letter I fancy. Keep calm and carry on baking!
