When this torte was first made, it looked deceptively dense and overly rich. I thought this might be a failure to my first torte baking. But guess what? It was a big hit by my family and friends! As for me, I had it for my tea session over the weekend, reading my favourite lifestyle magazine while enjoying this own-baked savoury treat~ Yes.. and “No” (smile), it wasn’t overly rich for the taste bud. Instead, the taste was just right to bring out the true sensation! True creamy chocolaty taste, and pleasantly sweet without being overpowering. Texture of the cake is dense (that’s why it is called “torte”), but it is perfectly matched with the soft and smooth mousse cream in between the layers (Yes, torte is supposed to make in layers). Its density complements the silky mousse cream and chocolate topping, creating an overall taste of perfection!read more
“Relish the homebaked light and moist cream cheese pound cake”
Pound cake simply means a pound of each ingredient or ratio of 1:1:1:1 of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. I tried, but I guess my pound cake is still not in the so-very-strict traditional pound cake making rules (Well, I just wish to accomodate the majority taste buds of the modern world..still, almost 1:1:1:1 ration..:p), but it is definitely a delicious easy cream cheese cake.. (winking smile). And my pound cake resembles more like an American pound cakes which has lighter body, but often contain an abundance of butter to offer a rich taste. My pound cake is sweet, but not too greasy to have it served even after heavy meal.read more
“Tiny Eggless Almond Cup Cakes, good for your vegetarian diet, perfect as healthy snack for your young ones! And, it is simple to make!”
As you might know, my family and I will be on vegetarian diet on specific days i.e. 1st and 15th of every Lunar calendar month due to religious belief.
Even though we are not a strict vegetarian (we take eggs), but I am happy to learn an eggless cake. That way, we can have better religious vegetarian diet for totally avoiding egg intake, even for my dessert time!read more
“Best-ever-homemade almond tarts! Don’t make a regret for not trying this “secret” recipe!”
It’s alright if you do not believe, but I can tell you, this is the BEST homestyle almond tart I have ever tasted! Same compliment was given by my family, friends and even colleagues who tasted it as a treat from me!
Extensively fragrant and crisped tart crust with a ‘not-too-sweet’, aromatic cake-like textured almond filling… you may even taste the crunchy fine almond bites in the palate, yielding more interesting mouthfeel… How could one resists its temptation, my goodness! No worries about having strong pungent almond flavour in its filling, it wasn’t at all. It was simply excellent with perfect aromas…read more
“I don’t call it the best muffin, but it’s what we called the homemade savoury!”
There isn’t any odd combination, make your very own muffin into savoury varities! I made a nutty one! Yes, chocolate chips muffin with Macadamia nuts added into it.

“Cottony soft steam-baked yogurt cheese cake. A healthy & savoury treat for you & your loved ones!”
Cheese cake is almost everyone’s favourite dessert! I had my non-baked cheese cake recipe earlier on.. And learnt this baked one from a baking class recently.
The thing I liked particularly about this recipe is the almost melt-in-mouth softness. With yogurt added into the recipe, it’s not just about adding fragrance and taste, it makes the cake more mellow.
Unlike creamy cheese cake, this cottony soft and moist cake was not too sweet. I have sweet-tooth, but I don’t like my dessert to have too much sugar. And, this recipe has the perfect sweetness for me. Thanks to the right amount of sugar added and also the contribution of yogurt taste to it!read more
