Fruit Club

As 2011 dawned fresh and sunny, and Cake Club slowly awoke to a new year of cakin’ delights, Kat, Pen and Janine provided a light and fluffy start to the next 52 weeks of digestive challenges. Fruit Club, designed especially to sound almost healthy, but in the end living up to the Cake Club ideals of high fat and sugar, with a dash of alcohol, went down very well with the troops. The recipes follow.

Fruit salad

1 nectarine
4 plums
1 peach
apple juice to cover
dash of peach schnapps (or whatever you can find in the Party Box)

Mix. Stir. Consume.

Whipped cream

Whip up a bottle of cream. Add a couple of spoons of icing sugar and a yon of vanilla essence.

Fresh Fruit Ice-cream (from Page Lawson)

4 parts fruit
2 parts cream
1 part sugar

Best made with frozen fruit that has been half defrosted.
Mix cream and sugar in a food processor, add fruit and process until smooth.
Freeze and eat (best taken out of freezer half an hour before eating).
You can always add extra chunks of fruit just before half way through the freezing process e.g. passionfruit (or passionfruit syrup) or blueberries or pieces of chocolate

Flavours for fruit club
Banana and passionfruit…stir in the passionfruit once the icecream is partially frozen
Blackboy peach

Raspberries or any other fresh fruit will also work.

Christmas Cake-off 2010: Results

The Christmas Cake-off results were counted, and the contest was close! Number of votes and percent market share taken in the week of voting had to be taken into account, but in the end, the winners were:

Nina’s Rhubarb and strawberry tarts
Aesthetics Robyn’s White chocolate Christmas cake
Helen’s Cheesemas Pudding

The overall winner, with all three category points added up, was the all-round pleaser, Janine’s La Bombe Noel

Let’s finish, as we started, with a festive song.

O come, all ye cakeful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, o come ye to Ca-a-ake Club.
Come and behold it, baked the King of Cake-off.
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
Cake-off King.

Feast, club of bakers, feast in exultation,
Bake hard and take the praises coming your way.
Share out the butter, pour another tot of cream.
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
Cake-off King.

All hail! Nina, we greet thee, crowned this happy morning.
O Robyn, evermore thy cake be known as the best.
Cake of the Challenge, Helen in truth was voted.
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
O come let us devour it,
La Bombe Noel is King.
