Danish Loaf

A delicious loaf, with 36 layers of flaky, buttery goodness created from 3 folds (3 * 4 * 3 layers). I consider this a rather advanced recipe which requires some experience in bread making. Best if you can operate in air conditioned room or at least on a cool day or at night. You also…

Quiche Lorraine

Lovely delicious quiche you won’t regret making. I’ve made this twice over the past week and it’s so much better than all the outside ones I’ve ever had. From the all butter crust, to the filling chocked full of natural cheeses, bacons etc, it’s just lip-smacking good. Recipe (for 9.5 inch round fluted tart pan…

Butter Cookies

Tried a new buttter cookie recipe that retains the shape well and no long resting or chilling time required. Best part is the texture which is really crisp and crumbly very similar to Jenny’s. Just see the cross section of the crumb, how fine and airy it is. Couldn’t stop biting into them, and I…

Best Brioche

I enjoyed eating this so much, no regrets spending 2 days on it. It tasted like butter flavour cotton candy, better than most I’ve had outside. But it’s really not easy, not only because of the constant challenge of melting butter but also the high hydration that already requires longer kneading time. Suggest that you…

Almond Butter Cake

Added some almond flour or powder in my traditional butter cake and the cake body is so soft. More fragrant too. A very easy, whole egg recipe, I have baked it too short though. Recipe (7″ round tin) 160g salted butter 110g caster sugar 3 eggs 100g plain flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 60g super…

Ermine Buttercream or Flour Buttercream

Ermine buttercream. It’s lighter than American Buttercream but easier to make than SMBC. It’s every bit as delicious, stable and very pipeable in our hot weather. Also, be assured there is no flour taste whatsoever. Recipe (makes a small piping bag) Roux 16g plain flour 80g milk Butter cream 100g salted butter 1/4 tsp vanilla…

Super Easy Traditional Butter Cake (no egg separation)

A very easy adaptation of a classic butter cake recipe. I baked them into cupcakes. There is no need for egg separation, yet cake is still light and fluffy and not dense with oily patches. You can also bake into a whole cake. Just 1.5 times the recipe below, bake 175 deg for 40 min…

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…
