Perfect Chocolate Sponge Cake

Perfect Chocolate Sponge Cake

Laini Oldfield | June 25, 2019

I made this sponge cake for my dad’s 70th. It was so good that everyone asked for it again for my mum’s birthday the week after! 

It’s quite simply a perfect, light and s-p-o-n-g-e-y chocolate cake for any occasion.

And topped with fresh berries… that’s next level.


1 3/4 cups white spelt flour (I’ll test with wholemeal spelt flour soon)
1/2 cup cacao
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (bi-carb soda)
1 tsp salt
4 eggs
1 cup milk (any milk is fine)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup super hot  / boiling water


1. Preheat oven to 180°C.

2. Grease 2 x cake tins with butter (I used 2 x square silicone cake pans).

3. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl.

 4. Add sugar and salt. Whisk to combine.

5. Beat eggs with electric hand mixer for 10 mins (yep, 10 mins! I was able to configure the bowl and mixer to balance there doing it’s thing while I walked away. You could always enlist the help of the little people who will help eat this cake, or use a stand mixer)

 5. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla to flour mixture. Whisk well to combine until lump free.

 6. Add super hot / boiling water and whisk to incorporate.

 7. Pour batter into cake pans.

 8. Bake for around 35 mins (or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean).

 9. Cool for 10 minutes then turn out to wire tray cake coolers.

 10. Cool completely before frosting. I used a chocolate cashew coconut cream icing in the middle (cos’ that’s where I could get away with it), and simply thickened cream and berries on top (my kids don’t like coconut cream)!

Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

Kate Parker | January 23, 2019

You won’t miss the taco seasoning packet with this easy recipe! You can also choose to add ½ a tsp each of onion powder and garlic powder to this mix if you want it to be as simple as the supermarket brands, but we love the benefits of adding those ingredients to the pan fresh at the beginning to saute before adding spices.

1 tsp ground chilli powder (adjust according to your heat preference)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp sweet paprika
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper

1. Mix all together.

2. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

3. You can batch make this mixture by doubling, quadrupling or ten-folding the quantities and just pop a few tsp into the pan when you’re ready to make Mexican next.

Pistachio and Rosewater Raw Vegan Cheesecake

Pistachio and Rosewater Raw Vegan Cheesecake

Kate Parker | February 7, 2018


This raw vegan cheesecake is made with the gorgeous and classic Middle Eastern flavour combination of pistachios and rosewater. The dessert is silky smooth, rich and not too sickly sweet, relying more on the fragrant combination of flavours than on adding in sweeteners.

You will need a food processor and high powered blender to create this dish.




1 cup raw almonds
1 cup dates, deseeded
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Pistachio Layer

200g raw cashews
200g raw pistachios
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
1/4 tsp himalayan salt

Rosewater Layer

400g raw cashews
1 cup rosewater syrup
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
50g extra pistachios for decoration and dried rose petals if you’re feeling fancy.


1. To prepare the pistachio and cashew nuts to make the smooth, creamy cheesecake layer you need to soak them for at least four hours, or overnight in the fridge.

2. Soak the pistachios and cashews for the pistachio layer in regular water, place in a container cover with water. Soak the cashews for the rosewater layer in the rosewater syrup with an extra 1/4 cup of water. When ready to use drain the nuts from the water.

3. Line a 18x18cm square cake tin with greaseproof paper.

For The Base

1. Place all of the ingredients for the base into a food processor and blend on high until a crumb is formed.  You should be able to push the mixture together. If it seems too dry or loose, throw in an extra couple of Medjool dates and blend a little more.

2. Once combined, pour the mixture out into your lined cake tin and press down to form an even, flat base layer.

3. Place in the freezer while you prepare the pistachio layer.

For The Pistachio Layer

1. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender.

2. Blend until smooth.  You may need to tamp down the mix depending on your blender.

3. Take out the base which should have set a little in the freezer by now.

4. Pour the pistachio layer in and smooth down into an even layer with a baker’s palette knife.

5. Place back into the freezer to allow to set for the next layer.

For The Rosewater Layer

1. Repeat the same steps as pistachio layer!

2. Put everything in the blender, blend it up until it’s a perfectly smooth consistency.

3. Check on your pistachio layer, if it seems too warm or wet give it a little longer to set before pouring over the raspberry layer.

4. Once set pour over the raspberry layer and allow to set in the same way.

5. Place the tray back in the freezer and leave to set for four hours. If you want to leave it in overnight just cover it up with foil so it doesn’t get freezer burn.

6. Once set, you can remove from the freezer and place onto a wooden chopping board to cut into evenly sized pieces.The cheesecake is so smooth in this recipe your knife will just glide through it completely frozen.

7. Top with pistachios crushed in a mortar and pestle and served immediately, or return to the freezer in an airtight container for future use.

This dessert will keep for up to two weeks in the freezer without any negative effects. Pull it out about 10 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
