About a couple of weeks ago, I had lost my mind when I decided to make pineapple tarts when it’s not even Chinese New Year. It’s not that they are only eaten during Chinese New Year but I typically reserved making them for special occasions because holy moly, they are so tedious and time-consuming to […]
Made financiers for the first time early October – I was aiming for a lemon thyme flavor but of course, I had no fresh lemon or lemon extract at home, lol. I ended up using Fiori di Sicilia extract and topped the financiers with a blueberry or two and tiny sprigs of lemon thyme from […]
Earlier in October, I baked Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake from Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table cookbook. Confession – I’m not a big fan of cinnamon so when I heard that this Apple Cake does not contain any cinnamon, I just knew I had to make it. 😁 The cake turned out absolutely delicious! I served […]
Wondering what to make with your overly ripe bananas? Try this simple Banana Coconut Cake – tender and delicious with a crunchy coconut-almond topping. Absolutely satisfying as a teatime snack or after dinner dessert and goes great with a cup of hot coffee or tea! Enjoy! ~Cake is adapted from King Arthur Flour’s Banana Crunch […]
As much as I love pineapple tarts and kuih bangkit, they are so time-consuming to make. Thankfully, I love these cashew cookies as well and they are much easier and faster to churn out! Delicious! Recipe can be found here at a previous post.
Made one of my favorite cakes yesterday evening – light and tender (the honeycomb/beehive layer has a slight chew) with a delicious caramel/butterscotch flavor. Fresh baking soda makes a big difference in how distinct the honeycomb-like patterns turn out. Recipe can be found here. Enjoy! ❤️
Made apam balik (Malaysian/Singaporean-style peanut pancake) for a delicious afternoon snack. Used The MeatMen recipe and Sunrise Flour Mill Heritage White Flour. Yum! Personal note: I typically spread a thin layer of softened butter on the pancakes before adding the peanut mixture.
This was lightly adapted from my ube chiffon cake recipe. Since I was planning to bake it in a 9” x 13” dish, I knew I didn’t have to worry too much about the batter being too heavy for the pan like when I baked the chiffon version. Hence, I upped the ube powder slightly […]
We first encountered the original version last Christmas when we were gifted the cookies by our wonderful friends down the street. Every bite was an indulgence that I just had to ask Liz if I can have the recipe and she directed me to Smitten Kitchen. Here, I adapted the recipe slightly to what is […]
Ta-dah- homemade pandan coconut doughnuts! My only day off and I spent half of it making/frying doughnuts, lol. The dough contains mashed potatoes, which I love because it keeps the end result moist and fresh for longer than a few hours. Toooooo delicious – absolutely worth my time! 😂❤️😋 Adapted from Mashed Potato Doughnuts recipe […]
