葱油饼 Chinese Spring Onion Pancake

These are thin and crispy on the outside, soft and airy on the inside. Goes very well with Chinese vinegar dip. I used Caroleasylife‘s recipe and Princess Linda‘s techniques. Recipe (makes 4 big ones) Dough 300g plain flour 180g warm water 1/4 tsp yeast 1.5 tsp sugar 1/4 tsp salt Spring Onion Paste 170g chopped spring onion…

Honey Toast (蜂蜜吐司) with Tangzhong/ Water Roux

Lovely aromatic bread, 60g of honey in this recipe, replaces all the sugar needed for sweetness. Loaf is fluffy and tall and smells of honey with every bite. I’ve also added tangzhong (water roux) to the recipe and it has made the bread’s softness last longer. Recipe (Adapted Banyzhao) 80g tangzhong (20g bread flour, 100g water)…

Wholemeal (tangzhong) Loaf

Added tangzhong to a wholemeal loaf and the bread is exceptionally soft. Pulled a lovely window pane too. However, the dough is pretty soft and sticky too, so need to be patient when kneading. Recipe 160g tangzhong or water roux (using 30g bread flour and 160g water) 400g bread flour 100g wholemeal flour 130g water…

Lemon Tarts (improved)

Originally posted on Olady Bakes:
My children and I love lemon tarts and I’ve been paying so much for them at places like Cedele, abc, Delifrance etc. Abc sells one for $6, which is enough for me to make about 9 of the same size! This is a simple hand mixed recipe. One key thing…

Nigella’s Chocolate Chip Muffin

See the picture below, all baked using the same recipe. Muffins on the left are lopsided and flat top too! Recipe (makes 12) Dry ingredients 250g…

Easy Whole Egg Sponge

If you are like me, who have struggled with water bath and just can’t get a smooth top cake with no shrinkage, then this recipe from Stephie is really a blessing. It uses whole eggs ( no egg separation), no water bath, and yet no cracks and shrinking. I baked at a short 35 min…

Honey Brown Sugar Butter Cake

I seldom get such smooth top cake, and pretty good height for a heavy butter cake. I tweaked the original recipe from Enne Ty by adding honey and other minor adjustments. The original recipe is here. The honey and butter aroma when baking was a heavenly mix. Very yummy.  Recipe (6″ round cake tin) 3 egg…

Easy One Proof Buns (Burger and Luncheon Meat)

This is a really easy one proof recipe adapted from Killer toast, and gives tasty, soft and fluffy buns. They remain soft till the next day. You can use it for any filling or shaping, I have used them for mini luncheon meat buns and burger buns here.     However, the dough was rather…

Plain White Toast (Softest Ever)

It’s not the first time I’ve tried this recipe, just that results had never been this good. I was taken aback when slicing the bread, so cottony soft and fluffy. I guess the difference this time is that I had gained better appreciation of making bread over time and had really been very careful in…
