Peanut Butter Brownie

Very quick and easy, if you have a sudden dessert craving, you can get this out under 2 hours. No special raising agents other than eggs, which I beat in real well. The combination of dark chocolate and savoury peanut butter is a winner. Recipe ( adapted from katiebirdbakes, 8″ by 8″ square tin) 110g…

You Tiao (You Za Kueh/ Chinese donut)

This is a really simple recipe with short ingredient list and simple steps.

Chocolate Lava Cake

A really quick and easy recipe you won’t regret making. The taste is decadent and rich and a huge success with my kids. I adapted and baked using my muffin tray, since I don’t have ramekins. The key is to monitor the baking really closely as baking time is short. If you over baked this,…
