Thanks for your help in supporting my blog! My elder daughter had her 4th birthday celebration in Dec this year! I am kind of tired out from organising parties because I am usually the only one who does the planning, coordinating and baking lol! And the husband also requested for a no butter/no cream kind of birthday cake, which made me… Read More
My younger daughter celebrated her 1st birthday in Sept earlier this year! I didn’t want to put this on the blog because there was nothing too fancy, and was just a small family gathering. My personal aim is to make birthday cakes for the girls, for as long as I can go 🙂 So for mei mei’s, of course I had to make it myself too!
These are mini version of the Panettone bread, which tastes quite like brioche bread – rich, sweet – just everything nice! I have also added in some ground cinnamon and nutmeg for the season mood.
If you have egg yolks left to clear, other than making curds or pastry cream, try making these easy egg yolk cookies. What’s more, you don’t need butter to make them! Yay to an one-bowl-mix cookie!
This Taiwanese soft white bread is a loaf of soft, fluffy bread made using plain flour, instead of the usual bread flour. The recipe seems to have originated from a Taiwanese bakery.

If you are using just white plain flour, your loaf will be white.

It has been quite a while since I have tried making cookies! Do you like crunchy or chewy cookies? Before Subway cookies became a hit, I remember most of us loving those crunchy chocolate chip cookies. If you love crunchy cookies with melty, oozy chocolate chips, you would love these!
Ever since my younger daughter is born, I have been trying to find cheat meals or food that can be prepared easily. Especially now that she is also eating the usual food that we eat, time can be really tight to put 3 meals and 2 snacks on the table lol! So I was very glad to come across some no-knead bread recipes. I quite like this recipe, since it can be either baked in the oven or cooked over the pan (yay to flexibility!), and the texture can be considered quite fluffy for a no-knead bread! I find… Read More
