Bakers Club

HDL bakers club

Do you love to bake?

The Hastings Bakers Club meets to share recipes, baking tips, and of course food! We have a new theme every month, and bring along something we’ve made to share. Bakers Club members also get first access to new baking and food books.

It’s a great way to meet new people, learn something new and bond over kai. Baking experiments are more than welcome!

When do we meet?

We meet once a month on the 1st Tuesday of each month
10.30am - 11.30am at Hastings War Memorial Library

What are the monthly themes?

Our themes for the year ~

  • February 2nd My Favourite Thing What’s your favourite thing to bake?

  • March 2nd International Bake something from another country

  • April 6th Dairy-free Use alternatives to dairy, or bake something that doesn’t require any in the first place

  • May 4th Pastry Chef Try your hand at pastry – savoury or sweet.

  • June 1st Hand-me-down Use a recipe given or taught to you by someone older than you

  • July 6th Mid-winter Christmas/Matariki Bring Christmas cheer to the middle of the year, or bake up some warming Matariki treats

  • August 3rd Nuts & Seeds Get nutty and seedy – what can you bake with these ingredients?

  • September 7th Chocolate Chips Include this baking-cupboard staple in your baking this month

  • October 5th Scones Will you go for the traditional classic or attempt something radical?

  • November 2nd Too-Hard Basket Bake something that has always seemed beyond your skills, or something you’ve failed at before.

  • December 7th Bake from a library Book I will bring a variety of library books to our November meeting. Choose a recipe from one of our books to bake.
