Korean Japchae

For some strange reason, when I was young, I thought Japchae was just Stir-fried Tanghoon. Never a fan of tang hoon means I wasn’t open to trying Japchae. But as one age, as we all know, our taste buds change as well. I forgot how I came to try a mouth of tang hoon, but…

Japanese Cotton Cheesecake

To me, Japanese desserts are always very delicate and Japanese Cheesecakes are not exception. Personally, I’ve not a big fan of cheesecake, because I don’t fancy the dairy cheese taste. But Japanese Cheesecakes are a little different, they taste lighter and gives a subtle hint of cheese. Many years ago, I tried baking a cheesecake,…

Old School Butter Cake

I’ve never liked baking butter cake, that’s because I’ve never found a good recipe that doesn’t result in a dry and coarse butter cake. But now that I have completed Wilton Course 3, a dense cake is essential for making sure the whole cake doesn’t collapse when it’s covered and decorated with fondant and gum…

French Apple Cake

A dear friend sent me this recipe a while back. And seeing rum in the recipe got me hyped up a little (I love liquor in desserts! =D), but I didn’t really find the time to try this until recently when I realize we had tons of apples in the house! Sprinkle on some sugar…

Green Tea Tiramisu

I’ve always wanted to try making different flavors of Tiramisu but I’ve never really got down to doing it. So my colleague returned from Japan with packets of Matcha powder in the hope of having Green Tea Tiramisu that he missed out in Japan. So I’m tasked to fulfill whatever he didn’t accomplish in Japan! I…

Green Tea Chiffon Cake

I was just suddenly craving for Green Tea cake, popped by the supermarket and bought some matcha powder. Hopped on to my favorite blog for a recipe on Green Tea Cake. Love the green tea flavor in the soft chiffon cake. Feels utterly light and not too sinful! We just need to binge once in…

Butter Sponge Cake

I was surfing around some of the Facebook groups and see a lot of raves around Butter Sponge Cake. I had this recipe for Old School Butter Cake, which I love! To me, the Old School Butter Cake was moist enough to my liking. Apparently with this Butter Sponge Cake, since it is using roux…

Tiramisu

Tiramisu is like an all-time favorite of mine that one would think that it would hardly go wrong. I love coffee, I love alcohol.. mix it up with cheese and chocolate, and it just turns out divine. Well, it did went wrong once for me when I was very young when I baked (note the word…

Double Chocolate Cake

It’s tough cracking my head every week thinking what to bake for the week’s potlunch. So thanks to the inspiration from the Facebook group I’ve joined.. TADA! A sinful and very delicious Double Chocolate Cake. Love that smooth, creamy ganache in between and over the cake that gives the cake the chocolatey taste to it!…

Gula Melaka Cake

Gula Melaka, which is palm sugar, is widely used in South East Asia. It is particularly fragrant when you add them to your dessert, and a combi of Gula Melaka and Coconut milk always never go wrong. I tasted an Ondeh-Ondeh cake some time late last year. Ondeh Ondeh is a classic Malay kuih easily…
