Mango Cake Recipe

“My 1st attempt of baking Mango Cake”

Bringing sweet treats to Monthly Leadership Meeting in the beginning of each month has become the latest style. Yes, the sweet savoury food made by me, for the meeting!

I made this Mango Cake for the meeting early this April. 1st attempt, and all the peers were my ‘guinea pig’ (laughing)!

I felt glad and was very pleased with my 1st attempted Mango Cake! Most of all, it was greatly appreciated by the colleagues. Yeah!

Each of them got only a small slice of it as I was capable making only a 8″ sized square cake, at the moment (smile). read more

Express Pineapple Tarts (黄梨挞“旺来達”)


“Pineapple tart crust recipe in two ways to share with you here! Happy Lunar New Year to all Chinese!”

Thanks to my colleagues’ trial of the pineapple tart making, Margaret and LinSi. Their successful pineaple tarts making gave me confidence to set out my adventure in baking pineapple tarts, first time (chuckling). Both gave me their recipes, and I envisioned these two recipes as one to my first tart production of its own. A million of thanks to them!

Of course, pineapple tarts are always one of the staple food of Chinese New year festival. I, too, want to make some for my loved ones. read more

Chocolate Cookies Recipe For Beginners

“Simple recipe for best homemade cookies. Beginner, you can do it!”

This is the simplest cookies recipe for first-timers and beginners. I am, one of the first timers in baking cookies, too (laughing)! Yes, this is the result of my first cookies baking. Yes, the cookies taste delicious. I brought them to the office the next day, to share with my colleagues. The feedback was good, and I have impressed them with these chocolate cookies, especially the texture. Shapes are kinda odd (I had square and round shapes from all 4 rounds of baking.. ha..), but taste is perfectly good. It feels so crispy to chew and the level of sweetness is just perfect for everyone. read more

Basic Homemade Crepe

“Simple pan-crepe you can make at home, for hearty breakfast or tea time snacking

Ray, one of my blog readers, requested a pan cake recipe about 1 month+ back. I promised to write my pancake recipe for him, and I delayed it till now (sobbing). “So sorry, Ray. It was not that I didn’t have time to do it, it was simply because I did not really feel like having pancake during my diet period (Pancake is higher in carbohydrate).” However, I had it this morning! It was raining this morning, ran out of ready breakfast food at home, and I have much peanut butter left in the refrigerator going to expire in one month time, and thus, I made ‘pancake’ with making use of peanut butter as its filling (chuckling)! read more

Layer Cake (千层糕)

” Thousand Layer Cake which you can even make at home”

Layer cake is an expensive cake to purchase at bakery, especially at those renowned bakeries such as bengawan solo and etc. The layer-cake costs about $18 to $45. Actually the high price of this layer cake, not just for its taste, but also the effort of making such cake. It’s time consuming as it’s baked layer by layer.

I got the recipe from a magazine, and tried it!

The ingredients I used here are not something hard to obtain, method is simple, too. Just that, more time and attention will be needed to get it done. Perhaps I was lack of patience for first trial, my cake layers were much thicker than it supposed to be (sobbing)!! The layers were uneven, too. :( ~ But, but… the taste is good though (chuckling)! read more
