Cakes / Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies

Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies
These a re as  little different to most biscuits as they are supposed to be flat!
185g unsalted butter
105g macadamias
220g brown sugar ( I used a bit less)
110g caster sugar
225g SR flour
75g plain flour
1 egg
1 egg yolk
100g cranberries
Preheat oven to 180* and prepare at least 2 trays.
Toast the macadamias.
Place butter in bowl and melt at 50*, speed 1 until done.
Add flours, sugars, egg and egg yolk (you may like to give them a light beat first)
Knead until mixture comes together.
Add in nuts and cranberries. Mix in by hand or on knead.
Roll into balls (about 1 tablespoon) and place on trays about 6cm apart. Flatten a little and bake for around 12 minutes. Leave to cool on the trays as they are delicate.

This is based on a recipe in WW Christmas Cakes and Puddings. They are very nice. I may try them with pistachios and cranberries to make them more Christmassy.

Orange Biscuits
These are very tasty. I’ve decided to pop recipes in here as well as on “what are you cooking.” It makes the recipe so much easier to find.

It isn’t a thermomix recipe but is made in a food processor.

I melted the butter for this and then added all the other ingredients. It made it so easy. I combined them on  ^^. It only took a short while. Next time I may reduce the sugar a bit.

Cakes / Cherry and Almond Cake
« on: August 10, 2021, 05:09:32 am »
Cherry and Almond Cake
1 1/4 cups SR flour
100g almonds- I used unblanched ones
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/3-½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1½ cups frozen cherries
Put the almonds into the bowl and blitz. Set aside. No need to wash the bowl. I left mine about the size of a pin head and it gave a slight crunch to the cake.
Halve the frozen cherries.
Preheat oven to160* and prepare a loaf tin. (24cm x 13cm x6cm)
Place butterfly into the bowl. Beat eggs, oil, sugar, orange rind and juice for about 1 minute or until thickened slightly. Not over speed 4.
Remove butterfly and add flour, almonds and fold through with a spatula.
Fold halved cherries through  and bake for about 1-1½ hours.

My photo isn't the best and doesn't do the cake justice. It is very nice.
I found this recipe in a pile I really must go through. I think it was from Creative Gourmet.

I’ve just finished cooking passata on my TM5 and when I was cleaning it I got this message. I restarted the machine a couple of times but it kept happening. I don’t want to call my consultant until daytime hours. I’ve been reading about it and it doesn’t sound good.

American Apple Sauce Cake
1 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
2 cups sugar - I reduced this to just over 1
2½ cups unsweetened apple puree ( I peeled, cored and sliced some apples and popped them into the thermomix. When they were cooked I pureed them.
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon all spice
½ teaspoon salt
450g sultanas
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180*.
Grease and line a 27cm tin.(springform if you have it)
In a large bowl mix together the butter, sugar, apple puree and vanilla.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, spices and salt.
Add to the wet ingredients and mix together.
Add the dried fruit and nuts. Stir until combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for around 50-60 minutes until cooked.
Cool in the tin on a wire rack.
This recipe was given to me by Trudy. I believe it may be from a Barossa Valley book or similar. It makes a very BIG cake but does freeze well.

Pie Maker Chocolate Molten Puddings
Serves 6
180g dark chocolate (70%)
150g unsalted butter
110g caster sugar
50g plain flour
4 eggs
Place the chocolate and butter into the bowl, a couple of brief turbo blasts to chop it slightly.
Scrape down and melt these together. Speed 2, 50* until melted.
Add the sugar, flour and lightly beaten eggs and whisk quickly. Speed 4, about 5/6 secs. You may need to scrape the bowl down.
Preheat your pie maker, grease if you usually do.
Pour about one third cup of mixture into each hole.
Close lid and cook for 3-4 minutes or until a crust has formed on the surface.
Serve with icecream.
I found the mixture  made more than 6. I tore this recipe from a paper some time ago. They are delicious.
