Hidden Heart Chocolate Cake

“My heart hides, but my love doesn’t…”

Saw some posts about this hidden heart cake for Valentine’s Day, and I couldn’t stop myself for making one in this sweet festive day. It’s not difficult to bake this, but takes long time to assemble the whole thing. It took me 3 hrs for the whole process.

Hard effort paid off in the end. It was indeed romantic to be able to eat this ‘sweet hidden heart’ with the one you loved. Real romantic and heart warming.

Delicious Flourless Nutella Cake

“3 ingredients flour-less cake in just 30 minutes time”

I did not create this cake, but adapted by referring to many recipes online to conclude with the most sensible combinations and methods to do this cake.

It was very delicious. If you worry that this flourless cake might taste just too chocolaty and creamy as though eating just the chocolate paste by its own, don’t be. This Nutella cake resembles very much like a cake made with flour. Credit goes to the egg whites which made the cake soft, moist and very much like a floured cake.

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

Heavenly Rich Chocolate Christmas Log Cake (Express version)


Express version for last minute planning!

Christmas is just around the corner! This probably what you are hearing the most recently. I believed everybody enjoys Christmas festive and its wonderful feeling of the season. What have you prepared for your Merry Christmas, then?

I am not a Christian in religion, but I do enjoy celebrating Christmas, the festive of joy….. Yes. Nothing elaborate in my celebration though. I liked the feeling of having my once-a-year signature Christmas chicken chop dish together with my family. And of course, a Christmas log cake.

My Girl Told Me What Are the 5 Reasons to Drink MILO Every day

“Get the best start to your day with MILO!”

Following my footsteps, my girl has been religiously drinking MILO since she was a little girl. In fact, she drinks MILO for almost every meal! Regardless of where we dine – coffee shop, restaurant, cafeteria, McDonald’s and even in her school canteen during recess – she will surely order herself a cup of MILO to go with her meals.

She also loves having it for breakfast (which has been made compulsory by her mum, aka me!). Yes, no skipping of breakfast is allowed in the house, and my girl is happy to have a cup of MILO to go along with whatever she is having for breakfast.

Chocolate Coffee Birthday Cake (with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting)

“Birthday Cake”

Hubby’s birthday, and he doesn’t like to celebrate elaborately (not at all, in fact). So, nothing huge, seriously, just a (western) home-baked, and (Chinese) home-cooked ‘Mee Sua’ dinner, yesterday. Hub might not sound happy or impressed for my sweet effort (feeling so sad), but I knew down in his heart, he appreciates it. At least, he would like the mee sua (Chinese thin strands wheat flour vermicelli) soup with chicken drumstick and 2 red hard-boiled eggs, a traditional Chinese ritualized birthday meal, by and from his beloved grandma.. :)
