    Nutella Muffins

    Nutella, who doesn’t love the hazelnut-chocolate spread? Imagine your double chocolate chip muffin comes with a pleasant surprise on the inside, especially when you heat it up. When you bite into the middle, warm and gooey flow of Nutella oozes out. Yum, this is to die for! Be warned! You will be using almost the entire jar of Nutella spread when making just a dozen of muffins. Sinful… This isn’t your typical muffins, I’m sure you know by now. Hurry up and get yourself the ingredients so you can make yourself a decadent treat! My family and I quickly devoured the muffins right after I finished my photo taking. It was gone…

    Strawberry Cheesecake ストロベリーチーズケーキ – Japanese-Inspired

    I was very inspired to make a strawberry recipe after my strawberry picking in Japan. Last month, I went to Fukuoka and the strawberries there were amazing! It was so sweet and juicy. I was like thinking, why not let’s make some strawberry recipe. The way I make cheesecake is a little different from others. Though I have conventional cheesecake recipes, I like to incorporate yogurt and agar agar powder into my cheesecake. Instead of heavy cream, yogurt enhances the flavor of the cream cheese, giving a little more sharpness to the cheesecake. I also like to use agar agar powder instead of gelatin as my dad’s a vegetarian. Hence, this recipe…

    Red Bean Jelly (Mizu Yokan) 水ようかん – Japanese

    I was intrigued when I heard about Red Bean Jelly as I have never thought about the making it into jelly before. Red Bean has always been on the heavy side for me when it comes to dessert as it’s usually very rich and sweet. While as for jelly, I always depict it as light and refreshing, perfect dessert choice after a heavy meal. When I got to try out Mizu Yokan (Red Bean Jelly) in Japan, I was amazed! The flavor of the red bean was strong, yet it was still refreshing. I was told that the Japanese love their jelly during the summer. Apparently, there are a few…

    Laksa Cookie – Chinese New Year Recipe

    This coming Chinese New Year, I thought something adventurous while having a spicy bowl of Laksa Noodle. “Why not make some Laksa Cookie?”, I thought to myself. The next moment, I’m already sourcing for my ingredients at the supermarket! Just like my Salted Egg Yolk Cookies recipe, it has tons of curry leaves to aid intense flavours of the Laksa paste. I’m perfectly fine using store-bought Laksa paste. But, I know some of you guys may be against it, feel free to use your own homemade paste. I’m not so hardworking afterall. For me, it’s all about how easy and quick to make, from kitchen to tummy. If you like something…

    Double Chocolate Cranberry Almond Cookies – Christmas

    I’m always about indulgence. This Christmas, I’m looking for something quick and simple to indulge myself in my own room and this was what I came up with. What ‘s rich when there’s no dark chocolate in a recipe? You get the crunch from the toasted almonds. Yet, you also get a hint of sweetness from the delicious dried cranberries. Paired with the rich soft cookie, it’s amazing.

    Honey Blueberry Cheesecake with Panasonic Cubie Oven

    I recently learned about steam and bake cooking method and was amazed by the result. It’s like how some recipe requires you to bake a cake in a waterbath. With the Panasonic Cubie Oven, you could do it more efficiently without the hassle and risk of burning yourself! There’s a Combi-Steam and Convection Bake setting for you to use and I would certainly say it yield you great results. Cakes baked using this setting will give you a moist and soft interior while chickens are well roasted to golden brown on the outside and still remain moist and juicy on the inside. I wondered and told myself, “Why not we…

    Lapis Surabaya

    Last week, I shared my experience at Lapis Lapis in Jakarta with my good friend, Titan. If you haven’t seen the video make sure to check it out here! So for today, I am sharing my take on Lapis Surabaya. I got this recipe from my mum’s old notebook and made some modifications to suit the size of my pan. As I don’t fancy making a whole cake because I can’t finish, I made my Kueh Lapis in a loaf pan instead. If you want to make a large 7-inch square cake, just double the recipe will do. Additionally, if you have noticed, I’m not in my own kitchen! I shot…

    Miffy Themed Cafe – Kumoya (Lavender MRT)

    Miffy Meets Kumoya Kumoya is back with another different character for its seasonal themed cafe. This time, it is based on a Miffy, a female rabbit character that is super adorable.

Miffy’s Nice Nacho Cheese Fries and Iced Latte Delight For the appetizer, we decided to go for Miffy’s Nice Nacho Cheese Fries. I believe the fries were made in-house as the wedges were cut differently, giving that very special and rustic texture. It was very…

    Apple Pie

    I was applauded for my Apple Pie whenever I bring it to a gathering. My version of Apple Pie is different from others. I like to use a tart pan for my pies as compared to a pie pan as it looks extremely elegant. Unlike many other recipes, I like to precook my apple filling first before baking it as I prefer the flavor of it. I feel that my pre-cooking the apples, it actually deepens the fruit’s flavor and at the same time, allowing all the juices to be thickened. If you realize, my pie looks different. I used a cookie cutter to cut out shapes and used it…

    Jasmine Green Tea Chiffon Cake with Cheese

    Recently, I have been quite obsessed with teas. I wonder, “Why not bake with it?”. Which, resulted in this wonderful chiffon cake recipe. I know the combination of Jasmine Green Tea and Cheese sounds weird. But, the Cheese actually complements quite well with the flavor of the leaves. Jasmine Green Tea drink is a common choice for Singaporean. Though we don’t really put cheese on our baked goods, I got my inspiration from Indonesia. Indonesians love to sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese onto their cakes. I was intrigued to try it out and when I got to try it, it was lovely. To extract all the flavors out from the tea…
