Easy Baked New York Cheesecake

A very easy recipe. There’s no issue of wet sunken centre or cracks at all. I made it pretty short because we all can’t take a thick slab of cheese at one go, so this is more like the height of a tart. Best part of the taste is the refreshing lemon juice that cuts…

Japanese Cheese Cake (JCC)

Whoosh, I’m so happy with this Japanese Cheese Cake finally after fine-tuning and fine-tuning. Tested many times, no bubbly yolk batter, no kueh or dense layer and no cracks. Nice cottony texture too 🤗. I’ve been trying the few famous recipes but with little success. Most of the times I get a kueh layer at…

Vietnamese Banh Mi

This bread has a crusty skin and soft, fluffy interior. The hydration is on the high side, so you might need to oil palms and surface when handling the dough. No need for perfect window pane as it is not meant to be a super soft bread. Recipe (makes 4, from Linda ) 150g plain…

Salted Gula Melaka Nuts Drizzle

Recipe (makes about 40-50, from small small baker) 125g salted butter cubed 40g icing sugar 80g cake flour 125g potato starch Method 1….

Zebra Butter Cake

One of my better zebra cakes where the lines are clear and distinct. The butter cake batter is really thick, so it’s actually quite hard to get the chocolate and original batters to form the zebra pattern nicely. You need to tap a few times after each addition to get the batter to smoothen out….

Pan-fried Cake (pancakes)

If you love pancakes, and willing to put in some effort, here’s a great recipe for soft, fluffy and tasty pancakes. What I did was to take a sponge cake batter, and just pan fried it. It has got no whopping amount of rising agents, and in fact no chemicals at all. The meringue alone…
