    Butterfly Pea Flower Chiffon Cake – 蝶豆花戚风蛋糕

    Sometimes it’s nice to have something special but still comforting. The colour of the chiffon cake comes from the Butterfly Pea Flower itself, even though it does not have much of a taste. Still, it looks stunning and definitely brightens up one’s mood. My brother grew a variety of herbs in the garden and I felt that Rosemary was a good fit to decorate the cake with it. However, the aroma of the herb can be alittle too overpowering for some. I felt that the warm ‘spice’ fragrant of the Rosemary was a nice complement to the chiffon cake. My brother didn’t like it. As usual, I try to replace…

    Gula Melaka Butter Cake

    A viewer of mine recently requested me to share a Gula Melaka cake recipe through an email letter. She told me that she have been waiting to try out how to make Gula Melaka recipes but have no idea how to start with. So in this article, I am sharing my Gula Melaka Butter Cake recipe.  During the recipe creation process, I asked myself if I should develop it into a Chiffon Cake recipe or just a plain old good Butter Cake recipe. Since, I have always been craving for buttery cakes, I decided that I’ll be taking that path instead. What do you guys think? Let me know if you…

    Marble Cake 大理石蛋糕

    I love marble cake and always finding ways to improve it! The swirl turns out beautifully and the secret to that deep black chocolate batter is actually charcoal powder. It really stands out and bring the beauty of the two swirls. Of course, charcoal powder is totally optional but I highly recommend you to incorporate it if you want to impress your family and friends with this recipe. It’s been a while since I came out my marble bundt cake recipe and I have improved upon it.  This recipe is much more buttery and uses just cocoa powder. Although you may question why I didn’t use melted chocolate for the chocolate…

    Blackcurrant (Ribena) Sponge Cake

      The reason why I decided to make Blackcurrant Sponge Cake was that I was reminded of Ribena the other day when my friend asked me if I want some Ribena gummy (Blackcurrant Pastilles). Why not recreate a recipe using the flavour of Blackcurrant? That inspired me and hence, the recipe was created.  When it comes to frosted cakes, I don’t like my slice of cake to have full of frostings.  If you like, you could decorate the entire cake with the blackcurrant cream. The recipe makes just enough to cover the cake. However, I like mine to be decorated just on top of the sponge cake as I don’t like my cakes…

    Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe (抹茶飓风瑞士卷)

    Hurricane Swiss Roll is essentially a swiss roll that swirls layer that looks like a hurricane and hence the name. It is very popular in Indonesia, and when I first heard from my mum about it (who saw many beautiful pictures from her Indonesian relatives), I told myself that I am going to recreate these beautiful swirls. Luckily, it was fairly simple! For this recipe, I am pairing up the flavour of Matcha and Cream Cheese as it goes so well together. The bitterness of the Matcha powder complements the tanginess of the Cream Cheese, making it light and refreshing. Feel free to change the flavour profile to your liking.…

    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…

    SG50 Merlion Cake

    This year is a very special year for all Singaporeans. We are celebrating Singapore’s 50th birthday. A city that’s called my home. I would like to share this recipe and why I created it.  I have used a Red Velvet Cake based in contrast with the White Vanilla Buttercream to represent Singapore’s flag. So when you cut the cake, you will cake that red and white interior! What’s every Singaporean’s favorite all time biscuits? Gem Biscuits! They are small and cute. When I was young, I loved it so much that I eat it almost everyday. I like to eat the sugary icing first, then the plain old biscuits. Which,…
