Yoghurt Soft Wholemeal Bread (old dough)

A soft and fluffy bread using straight dough and quick proof method. The key difference is the old dough or ่€้ขthat I added, and the whole loaf was soft and fluffy. My old dough is easy and casual, it’s any bread dough saved from the last bread that you baked. I always make it around…

German Cookies

These are just really crumbly melt in the mouth butter cookies. Very easy to make, just don’t over bake to get this signature pale look. Be attentive when the cookies are baking.

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…

No Knead Country Bread

Have a lot to say about this one (skip rant and go straight to Recipe) – I don’t have natural starter, no Dutch oven, or banneton, nor time to wield at my convenience! But my whole family loves artisan breads (and all breads for the matter). I’ve tried some recipes involving days of fermentation until…

Steam Moist Chocolate Cake (almost Awfully)

Tasters say it’s almost like Awfully Chocolate, wow! A lot of good stuff went into this cake – varlhona, callebaut and lindor. The steamed cake body is soft and moist and I was almost afraid to handle it. The same recipe with adaptations has been on many blogs, I based it mostly from Jeannie. Suffice…

Orange Yoghurt Butter Cupcakes

These unremarkable looking little cupcakes made me so happy. Itโ€™s soft, moist, full of butter flavor but no dense oil patches anywhere. Best of all itโ€™s a one bowl recipe with whole eggs, really ho jiak! Recipe (makes 8) 125g butter (prefer tin golden churn) 110g caster sugar 2 eggs 25g orange juice 25g non…
