Christmas Baking Session on Zoom
December 16, 2020
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
We had so much fun baking pumpkin pie together on Zoom in November that we’re scheduling another group baking session.
This time, we’re going to have TWO options … and if you’d like to you can do both! (Or just come and hang out)
Option 1: Vegan Christmasy Spice Cake (it’s simple and delicious). Here’s a link to the recipe: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v80uh3h9xa1uc64/Danielle%27s%20vegan%20christmas%20spice%20cake.docx?dl=0
Option 2: Gingerbread People Cookies* (you will need to make the dough ahead of time as it will need to chill ahead … but we can do our cookie cutting, baking and decorating together) – There is a video in the discussion section of my friend Suzanne who is a professional baker kindly showing us HOW to make the gingerbread dough. And here’s a link to the reciple: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mtpl4veqtgbvm70/Suzanne%27s%20Christmas%20Gingerbread%20Cookies.pdf?dl=0
Option 3: If you DON’T like gingerbread I have also posted a recipe in the discussion section for sugar cookies to decorate! (Check the recipe for ingredients)
Here’s your shopping & equipment list! Both recipes have lots of overlapping ingredients:
VEGAN SPICE CAKE BAKERS NEED:
white granulated sugar
1 medium beetroot (really!)
2 tea bags (black, breakfast or chai)
Icing Sugar (optional)
Large bowl and spoon
2 loaf tins, 2 round baking tins or a casserole dish … or event cupcake tins.
Optional: parchment paper, loaf liners or cupcake cases
GINGERBREAD PEOPLE BAKERS NEED:
black treacle or molasses
SOFT Brown Sugar
‘people’ cookie cutter or a different shape (or just a glass!)
A mixer (standing or hand mixer) or just some muscle
coloured writing icing (multi-pack of colours) and any cookie ‘bling’
rolling pin (or clean wine bottle if you don’t have one)
You’ll need to be logged into Zoom to join in for security reasons. All are welcome!
