Chocolate strawberry bran muffins

Posted by Bake Club on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, In : small cakes 

With the abundance of strawberries at the moment I wanted to make a healthy combination of strawberries and chocolate.

1/2 tsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
50g cocoa
125ml boiling water
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 c rice malt syrup

Raw chocolate mousse tart by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, December 8, 2012, In : desserts 


I am making more raw goodies lately - maybe I should change this website to Unbake Club?! Thank you Nicola W for alerting me to this delicious raw, GF, DF, sugar-free choc mousse recipe. Justin and I gobbled it all up in 2 days. I had a little bit of crust left over so I made them into patties, dehydrated them and ate them as snacks.

2 c LSA (1 c flax seeds, 1/2 c sunflower seeds, 1/2 c almonds)
1 c macadamia nuts (I used cashews)
1/2 tsp sea salt
6 large Medjool dates (I used some soaked raisins...

Chocolate pavlova by Frances

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, October 5, 2012, In : desserts 

After making Nigella's semifreddo with 4 egg yolks, I had to make something with the whites - thank God for pavlova! And this chocolate version rocks! I made it in the evening but waited till the next morning when I had the toppings to photograph it, and ended up having pav for breakfast. Yes!

This recipe is shamelessly cut and pasted from Nigella:

6 medium egg whites (I used 4)

300 grams caster sugar (I used 200g for 4 whites)

3 tablespoon(s) cocoa powder sieved

1 teaspoo...
