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 […]

Blueberry Cake

I totally forgot I have this fantastic, easy-peasy cake recipe where the cake bakes up perfectly and the fruit topping never sinks to the bottomless abyss, lol. The base recipe originally came from an old favorite magazine – Chocolatier, and had plum toppings but here, I filled it with a massive amount of blueberries, because […]

Malaysian Honeycomb Cake/Beehive Cake

This is one of my favorite cakes from childhood! Named after its honeycomb-like patterns, it has two distinct layers – the top is light and tender while the bottom has a texture similar to a sponge cake. The flavor is reminiscent of warm, delicious butterscotch and is surprisingly not too sweet – we absolutely love […]

Coffee-Flavored Banana Cake

No, this is not your usual American coffee cake with the typical streusel topping. Instead, it’s a moist and tender banana cake infused with a lovely coffee flavor – perfect for anytime snack or as a light dessert after a meal. Delicious! {Adapted from the Sour Cream Banana Cake recipe from the Good Home Cooking […]

Summer Cake Delight

This cake was totally inspired by The Kitchn’s Easy Summer Cake with Fruit & Cream recipe. I mean, isn’t that cake absolutely gorgeous? I just love, love, love it! Of course, I had to make the cake, wouldn’t you? However, I decided to use a different cake recipe (from a cookbook I own), just because it’s […]

Cream Cheese and Blueberry Pound Cake

Where has our summer gone to? Not that I’m complaining weather-wise, since the cooler weather has allowed me to bake, bake, and bake. But at the same time, it feels so strange…it feels like we’re bypassing summer straight to fall. Not only that, school will be starting in another three weeks. Yikes! Breathe, Chris…breathe. :) […]

Apple Upside-Down Cake

Keith and I have gone through two cakes (and I don’t mean slices) and are now cutting into our third one in just four days. I mean somebody has to try them to make sure they are good before I actually post the recipe, right? :D Since it is apple season, I wanted to make an apple dish but without using any […]
