Are you a beginner in baking, looking to try out recipes to hone your baking skills?
I find the best way to pick up baking skills is to try the basic recipes to gather some confidence!
Often, we can find recipes with slightly complex steps, or with a lot of different ingredients (which you may not have in your pantry if you don’t bake all the time). I will be adding on to my Baking Basics series with a few basic recipes that uses simple ingredients and are quick to make.
This is a loaf of basic pound cake with vanilla flavor, brushed with some lemon syrup. Great cake recipe to start for baking beginners!
I am a big fan of Japanese confectioneries, even before I had kids. So naturally my choice of food and snacks influenced my kids too haha!
The kiddos love those Japanese cookies that we see frequently in supermarkets. These days as I have to work, and have lesser time cooking and baking at home, we had to turn to store bought cookies for their snack fix sometimes.
I wonder if you are familiar with Morinaga Moonlight Cookies? These sweet, small cookies are really buttery and creamy in taste! While I wouldn’t say that these cookies are exact replicate of Morinaga Moonlight Cookies, I thought that these cookies indeed has a taste of nostalgia!
Sorry for not updating the blog as frequently as before! Work has been really busy, and I am thankful that you guys are still following my blog and trying out recipes here 🙂
This is a re-make and update of an old strawberry chiffon cake recipe.
The original recipe uses pureed strawberry. I’ve changed to use Smuckers strawberry jam + 1 tsp of freeze dried strawberry powder. If you do not have strawberry powder on hand, it is ok to skip it too.
The cake doesn’t have a nice pink hue – probably because of oxidation! So you might want to add a few drops of lemon juice; or if you’d really like a super girly pink color in the cake, you can add in some strawberry emulco or coloring.
This is a soft and rich pound cake, with a light banana flavor, accompanied by crunchy walnuts and a hint of cinnamon. You don’t need a lot of bananas for this cake, so it’s a great way to use up leftover bananas!
Soft and fluffy one-proof loaf of bread, with a light pandan flavor and color. Great for busy days, where you get to save time in the kitchen! Quite a foolproof recipe that is easy to make.

Super crunchy chocolate chip cookies with a dash of cocoa powder and coffee for a even yummier treat! It comes quite close to Famous Amos cookies, though not entirely the same. This is a remake of a recipe that I have tried 5 years ago!
Simple, homemade muffins loaded with chocolate chips, which are quick to whip up for afternoon tea. All time kids’ favourite! This muffin recipe uses creaming of butter and sugar – which results in muffins with more bite! Butter-based muffins, cupcakes and cakes often carries a tighter crumb and are richer in texture, which is great for butter cake lovers!
