Spread mixture into tin. Bake for 60 min or...

Chocolate and pistachio biscotti by Amy

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, January 24, 2013, In : cookies 


Adapted from an Annabel Langbein recipe. Goes down a treat with espresso.

2 + ¼ cup flour

2 + ½ tsp baking powder

¼ cup cocoa

1 + 1/3 cup caster sugar

3 eggs

½ cup chopped pistachios

½ cup chopped chocolate

Preheat oven to 180 deg C (fanbake) and line baking tray with paper.

Mix all ingredients together trying not to overmix (seems very dry at first but becomes very soft once sugar mixes into eggs).  As soon as it comes together pat into a log shape about 23cm x 7cm on the tray then flatten t...

1 tablespoon cocoa

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon mixed spice

½ cup each: honey, caster sugar...

Ginny's craisin and pistachio nougat

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, January 20, 2012, In : sweets 

This recipe is from the Mindfood website... I tried it, I would make it differently if I did it again. Notably, it has a strong honey flavour, so I would use less honey or perhaps a really mild one (I used white rata) and perhaps increase the amount of rosewater.... I also made it without that rice paper, but used icing sugar/cornflour to combat the slight tackiness of the crust... it's incredibly sticky. Would be hard without a stand cake-mixer!

Ginny's Persian rice cookies

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, December 9, 2011, In : cookies 

Ginny made these to accompany her Iranian slide show, mixing two of her favourite flavours - rose water and cardamom. They have a strange dryish texture but surprisingly moreish, and good with tea. Also easily breakable because of the rice flour.

1/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup ...

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...
