What is this sorcery?!! This dessert combo – matcha chiffon cake, passion fruit whipped cream and fresh strawberries (I added more after taking the photo) is out of this world! 2 cups heavy whipping cream 2 tablespoons powdered sugar 2 tablespoons Vonbee Passion Fruit Honey Puree (bought ours from Costco) Place all ingredients in the […]
Made Matcha Chiffon Cake on St. Patrick’s Day.

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 […]

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 […]
