Hasselnötskaka (hazelnut coffee cake)

Hastbullar (Swedish scones)

Hazelnut & blue cheese thumbprints

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, June 20, 2019, In : savoury 

I have become rather enamoured with a book called Slice & Bake Cookies by Elinor Klivans (Chronicle Books, 2013) who I discovered is a 76-year-old legend in baking and dessert making. Her signature technique is to freeze the cookie dough before baking, and you can store dough in the freezer to whip out and bake whenever you fancy. Having both hazelnuts and blue cheese on hand, I made a savoury version first.

Makes 28
1 c flour (I used wholemeal and white spelt)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Hazelnut thins

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, April 28, 2019, In : cookies 

This is a sophisticated biscuit for grown-ups. The thins are lovely as they are but you can take it to the next level by sandwiching them with a hazelnut chocolate ganache! This is from Biscuit by Miranda Gore Browne (Ebury Press, 2012).

Vegan hazelnut meringue torte with coffee buttercream

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, In : desserts 

I was at the Dunedin Farmers Market recently and splashed out on roasted hazelnuts from Amazelnuts, grown in Mosgiel. Fortuitous timing, as I was looking for an 'H' ingredient. This is no. 8. of 26 alphabetical bakes.
Aquafaba, the liquid from a drained can of chickpeas. makes a great meringue if you want to avoid egg whites - just don't open the door while cooking! I did, and in that brief moment the cold air took the lift out of my meringue sails. My meringues may not have risen but fear not...

Hazelnut chocolate fudge bars

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, November 30, 2017, In : sweets 

Why are hazelnuts so expensive? I love these lil' nuts but I only buy them for special occasion bakes. Or nonbakes as the case may be. These fudgy bars start melting as soon as they're out of the freezer but I'm gonna attempt to take some on a flight to Wellington tomorrow for our vegan friends - wish me luck!
This recipe is adapted from Vladia Cobrdova's A Whole New Way to Eat (Murdoch Books, 2017). She adds fresh ginger to hers, caramelised with honey. I did a cheat's version and just used o...

Hazelnut carrot cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, In : cookies 

Hazelnuts! Yummy but expensive little things, aren't they? That's why I don't often bake with them, but I had half a cup in the cupboard for some such occasion. I added some diced dried fruit to the mix to sweeten the package for the 4-year-old. She turned her nose up at them, however. Oh well, more for me. These fall into the brutti ma buoni style of biscuit - ugly but good.

Makes about 20

1 c spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c rice syrup
1/4 c almond butter (...

Life-changing bread

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, October 31, 2016, In : bread 

This appeared in 2013 on My New Roots and I've finally jumped onto the bandwagon! A dense, filling bread made of just nuts and seeds - genius. All mixed in the tin and you can experiment with different nuts and seeds too.
1 c sunflower seeds
1 1/2 c oats
1 c almonds (or hazelnuts)
1/2 c flaxseed
2 Tbs chia seeds
3 Tbs psyllium husk powder (or 4 Tbs psyllium husk)

Chocolate tuiles

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, November 23, 2015, In : cookies

Mmm. Nice sweet-savoury snack to take down to Party Central tonight to see the All Blacks beat Les Bleus! (Postscript: NZ 37: France 17 woo ha!) See the full post on Heidi Swanson's site, www.101cookbooks.com. She just uses walnuts but I used walnuts, almonds, hazels and brazils.

Frances’s yoghurt and goldenberry cake

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, July 10, 2011, In : big cakes 

I wanted to find a recipe to use my homemade yoghurt. I adapted Heidi Swanson’s buttermilk cake from her latest book, Super Natural Every Day. Her summer version uses sliced plums and she recommends a winter version of 12 chopped Medjool dates and 1 c toasted walnuts. I had neither so I used dried goldenberries, cranberries and hazelnuts.

 

1 ½ c spelt flour
1 c white flour
1 tbs baking powder
½ dark muscovado sugar
½ tsp sea salt
2 eggs
1 ½ c yoghurt or buttermilk

Ginny makes Nigel Slater's chocolate hazelnut cake

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, In : big cakes 

Below is what Nigel says about this cake ... I can't find fault with him, in any way. It was delightful.

However: I bought pre-toasted hazelnuts and accidentally put a mix of nutmeg and cinnamon into the cake (because I didn't read the spice jar label... it wasn't a disaster!)
I left the cinnamon out of the icing, and I dressed it with pomegranate. Yum!!

Frances's new chocolate moulds

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, February 10, 2011, In : sweets 

I bought two fantastic chocolate moulds in Venice - rose shapes and leaf shapes. No baking involved, but I thought I'd include my first batch to show you how easy it is.
Just melt dark and white chocolate. Filled the moulds halfway then added a toasted hazelnut or pistachio, and topped with more chocolate. For the leaves I mixed in chopped pistachios and dried cranberries.
Lately I've also made some batches of Annabel Langbein's espresso hazelnut chocolate ripple  - pouring dark and white choc...
