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. 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….

Swiss Meringue Butter Cream

Here’s a first attempt that I’m really so pleased with. SMBC is really tasty, very stable to work with and spreads on real smooth. I referenced Nasi Lemak lover’s and Wendy Inkk’s steps, but made slight adjustments to the recipe due to what I had on hand. It’s really not as daunting as I initially…

Melt in the mouth Pineapple Tart

Recipe (from Nasilemaklover, makes 50) 50 balls of pineapple paste, 8g each 175g salted butter 50g condensed milk 255g plain flour 1 egg yolk For egg wash: 1 egg yolk plus 1 tsp…

Orange Butter Cake 香橙轻牛油蛋糕

A variation of my earlier chocolate butter sponge, I used orange zest and juice to flavor this cake. As before, this cake is baked using a cooked dough method, dry bake for 40 min and has no need for water bath/ steam bake/ cream of tartar/ baking powder. Something different I did was to add…

Chocolate Butter Sponge

A happy bake, everything turned out just perfect, even though I was experimenting with a new recipe, oven temp (and position), even threw in scoring of the cake for controlled cracking. Like I struck lottery, right? I use a cooked dough method, with the melted butter ‘cooking’ the flour and the texture is ultra fine…

Golden Sponge Cake (cooked dough and dry bake)

This cooked dough recipe from Nasilemaklover gave the softest, fluffiest sponge cake that is so airily light. The texture is really amazing. See here. Once again, don’t overheat the butter when doing the cooked dough. Bake at low then high temperature, according to the recipe. I’ve placed a cup of water at my oven’s hot spot and…

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…

Butter Sponge Cake

This recipe slightly adapted from Enne Ty is good. And by good, I mean I am no longer sure if Mrs SK Ng is my favorite anymore :S. Being a huge butter fan, I almost try any butter cake recipe that I come across and currently, these 2 really stand out for me (and my…
