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

Blueberries
Raspberries
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
Apricots

Raspberries or any other fresh fruit will also work.

Pavlova

Banana cake with Passionfruit Icing

This week Sam produced a banana cake with passionfruit icing. As such, it fulfils two of the five fruit and veg a day necessary to maintain a cold nose and a glossy coat, and could be considered almost healthy. However, on grounds of taste (both visual and gustatory), it was agreed to allow it into the cake club dossier and it was duly demolished with great glee. Sam’s report will follow shortly.
