Bakes & Dessert

Soy Bean Pudding (“Lao Ban” Beancurd “老伴”豆花)

“Melt in your mouth… Silky smooth goodness..”

Another no-frills dessert which is so popular and delicious.

In fact, this popular dessert is a no-secret recipe which have been commonly known and made by many people. Probably you are one of them who already making it at home regularly. :)

To be franked, however, it wasn’t 100% successful the first time I made this as it turned out too runny. Edible, but it took much longer time to set and I had to place them in the freezer for a while. Yet, the pudding still seemed a little bit too wet.. But, this time, it was perfect. read more

Handmade Chocolate Ice Cream

“Easy, breezy, handmade ice cream.”

There are many ways to hand make this ice cream, but below would be the easiest way to do. Learnt this from a TVB cooking show hosted by Ms Maria Cordero (Fat Ma), in her latest cooking show, Good Cheap Eat 2 (食平DD), where she handmade Tiramisu ice cream as her dessert of the day. I am yet to replicate her Tiramisu ice cream, but adapted it to chocolate flavor, as requested by my dad who was curious and skeptical about making a delicious ice cream at home without a need of having an ice cream make or sort of special equipment… :D read more

Lactation Cookies for Diet Watching Nursing Mums

“Lactation cookies, diet cookies, or brain-boosting cookies? All in ones.”

I have been eating overnight oat porridge in the past weeks, for losing weight. No more eating out breakfast at McDonald or IKEA Cafe, I determined to shed away the unwanted fat! However, I really need to go out early in the morning tomorrow, I couldn’t stay back for oat meal breakfast… there suddenly had an urge to bake some cookies. I guess I could just bring some cookies out with me tomorrow morning, and to have these cookies for tea in the next two weeks! How about these in trend lactation cookies, for nursing mums, as well as diet watchers. read more

Rainbow Cake with Swiss Butter Cream Frosting

“Add colors to your weekend with this cheerful rainbow cake”

Went to a baking workshop on my last Valentine’s day to bake this cake which you have seen my cake photo posted in my FaceBook page on the very night itself.

My intention in attending the workshop was to try and have a feel on the making of fondant, in fact, but turned out that the fondant-making wasn’t happening, and had replaced with vanilla Swiss butter cream as the frosting. :( Me, disappointed? Yes. Me, happy? Yes, still. Reason being happy was able to share and learn up something during the hands-on workshop. It’s always good to attend some culinary/ baking workshops to share, regardless how well you cook/ bake, won’t you agree? :) read more

Apple-Banana Cake


“Freshly baked apple sauce & banana cake with fresh banana bites, for babies, and all.”

Oh ok, yes, I had some over ripen bananas leftover on my countertop. I always wanted to bake apple-banana cake that is suitable for young toddler to indulge in. And, here you go.

This apple-banana cake was great. Moist, soft, with natural sweetness from the ripped banana and apple sauce, mostly. Also, I added loads of banana and did not blend it thoroughly into the batter to leave some banana bits in the bake on purpose. So, yes, your baby would love to chew on the real banana in the cake. So do you! read more
