Cashew Cookies

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.

Malaysian Honeycomb Cake/Beehive Cake

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! ❤️

Peanut Pancakes

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.

Ube Birthday Cake

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 […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

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 […]

Pandan Coconut Doughnuts

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 […]

GF, DF Chocolate Date Brownies by FlavCity

For some reason, I was bombarded with numerous ads on Medjool dates on Facebook a couple of months ago, which led me to buy a package of Medjool dates at Costco, lol, even though I’m not a fan of dates as I find them too sweet. So when I saw the Gluten Free Chocolate Date […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Orange Chiffon Cake

In my opinion, February is the most brutal winter month in northeast Ohio. The prolonged cold and overcast days usually cause winter blues and cabin fever to set in…..right about now, and that’s not taking into consideration the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Thankfully, spring is just around the corner! We only have to make […]

Hopia

You know, there is no shame in admitting that there are certain foods you just can’t replicate at home. :) For me, that’s Chinese-style pastries……and it’s so hard to find good ones here. To my local friends, CAM carries this brand of hopia that I find to be absolutely delicious – flaky, tender, not too […]

Cashew Cookies Baking Marathon

Had a cashew cookies baking marathon Friday evening, right after work and a quick dinner and we’ve been enjoying these delicious morsels with my favorite Fig Leaf coffee since then. Pure bliss! ❤️ Recipe can be found here in a prior post.
