Matcha Tiramisu 抹茶ティラミス

Matcha Tiramisu 抹茶ティラミス

I have been craving for Matcha quite often recently. Maybe, it was due to the influence of a good friend of mine, who is a big fan of Matcha. If you realized, this recipe is actually adapted from my Express Tiramisu recipe, which means it is eggless and real simple to make.

Matcha Tiramisu 抹茶ティラミス

Now Tiramisu taste best… 2 days later in the fridge. Overnight is fine, but if you keep it till the day after next, the flavours among the layers just sync together with every bite. Amazing!

My recipe is quite versatile if you can’t take alcohol, omit the rum. If you are a vegetarian, simply just omit the gelatin mixture. It’s fine. The gelatin mixture was added to stabilise the cream, helps to set it well and prevent the fats and liquid being separated over time.

Even though I mentioned that the recipe makes for 2, it’s actually a huge portion for 2 person. You could share among 4, even 6 people as it is a very rich dessert.

Servings 6 people

Ingredients

Cream layer:

  • 100 gram cream cheese softened
  • 2 tsp of matcha powder
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 200 ml heavy whipping cream chilled
  • 1 tsp gelatin powder + 1 tbsp water

Biscuits layer:

  • 250 ml warm water + 4 tsp matcha powder
  • 2 tbsp of Rum
  • 12 ladyfinger biscuit
  • Matcha powder dusting

Instructions

  • Beat softened cream cheese, matcha powder, caster sugar with a hand mixer until it is nicely combined.
    Meanwhile, microwave gelatine powder and water for about 20 seconds.
    Drizzle in chilled heavy whipping cream into the cream cheese mixture and whip until the mixture is thickened.
    Flavour it with some rum and vanilla extract. Continue beating until the mixture thickens back, leaving a ripple effect when it’s being mixed.
    Stir in gelatine mixture when it is cooled. Continue beating for a minute to ensure it is well distributed. Put it into the fridge for an hour.
    The mixture will be a little runny once you add the gelatine mixture but not to worry.
    Once the cream has been well chilled, whip it on high speed until it thickens back, leaving a ripple effect when it’s being mixed.
    To assemble, soak ladyfinger biscuits into coffee until saturated and arrange them neatly into a rectangular pan (approx. 13 cm by 18 cm).
    Then, pour half of the cream mixture into the pan.
    Arrange the rest of the soaked ladyfinger biscuits neatly, then drizzle the rest of the cream over.
    Cover with a lid and let it chill overnight to firm everything up together.
    Dust cocoa powder upon serving.

Cream Cheese Garlic Bread (육쪽마늘빵)

I love Korean street food! I came to know about Cream Cheese Garlic Bread when I came across a video of a Korean shop selling these babies. It looks so good that I knew I had to recreate it the next day!

 

I decided to make the bread from scratch instead of getting off shelves so it could look as authentic as how the Koreans are selling.

Cream Cheese Garlic Bread (육쪽마늘빵)

I can tell you that it was damn good! My mum hates anything with cheese, I left half a slice for her to try it out thinking she would only take a bite. Guess what, she finished everything and told me it was amazing! Cream cheese, butter and garlic, you can’t really go wrong with this combination!

Cream Cheese Garlic Bread (육쪽마늘빵)

 As you can see, I added way too much dried herbs in my recipe. I have since then reduced the amount in the final recipe. Honestly, feel free to add more or less accordingly to your liking.

It certainly takes more effort to make these Souffle Pancakes. But, the texture of these pancakes is just delicate like a piece of cloud when you bite into it. Simply delightful.

While some enjoy the eggy flavor when it comes to souffle, I don’t. Hence, my recipe has higher amount of sugar content and vanilla extract to cover that pungent smell. If you are like me great! Else, please close the tab and find other recipes! (I’m just joking! Just omit the vanilla extract will do)

Be sure to eat your pancakes as soon as possible as it will start to shrink as time goes by, especially if you are planning to stack it up.

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

I realized Keto diet is getting really popular these days. Both my brothers were on this diet to lose weight and indeed they are super fit and slim these days. It wasn’t easy to recreate Keto cookies (as requested by my brother), as sugar and flour are the main ingredients to give cookie that crunchy texture we all love. But, I managed to do so after trying so many revisions.

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

In today’s article, I am going to share with you guys my Keto Almond Butter Cookie recipe. They are super easy to make just like a basic butter cookie recipe but a total delightful to eat. Buttery, nutty and also crunchy, this is one cookie that everyone (Keto, non-keto) would love. Who cares if it is sugar-free, gluten-free? It is guilt-free for sure!

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

 For my sweetener, I have used my trusty natural sweetener from Gavia. Gavia is a natural sweetener made from Stevia plant and Erythritol. While I’m sure most of you guys would know what is Stevia, Erythritol is also naturally found in foods like fruits, vegetables, cheese and yoghurt through the process of fermentation as the by-product of sugar. Hence, Gavia is an all-natural, zero-calorie, zero glycemic index sweetener which works great for baking and cooking. I actually teamed up with the Gavia team and they will be using my recipe to sell these Keto Almond Butter Cookies during Chinese New Year 2020! For a limited time and pre-orders only.

Marble Cake 大理石蛋糕

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.

Marble Cake 大理石蛋糕

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 batter, I really like this recipe as it is fuss-free. I don’t have to melt chocolate anymore, no more double boiler or standing in front of the microwave. The cocoa powder in this recipe gives quite a strong chocolate aroma to it. Hence, I don’t see the need for melted chocolate. I want the cake in my mouth ASAP!

Marble Cake 大理石蛋糕

As usual for most of my loaf cake recipe, I used the same pan I got from Daiso. The dimension is about 7.9″ x 4.3″. Cheap pan but it is my beloved. I have used it for many years and it is still working well.

Marble Cake 大理石蛋糕

Trust me, this recipe is perfect to go with your morning cup of coffee. I also like to have a slice in the afternoon while I catch up with my drama in the office. I have used Gavia Natural Sweetener this time instead of regular white sugar to cut down my sugar and calorie intake. Gavia is a natural sweetener made from the Stevia plant. It is zero calorie and zero glycemic index sweetener which works well in both baking and cooking. The reason why I like Gavia is that it doesn’t have a bitter after taste as compared to other sugar substitutes.

Marble Cake

One 7.9" x 4.3" loaf cake

Ingredients

  • 200 grams of unsalted butter soften
  • 180 grams of white sugar or Gavia Natural Sweetener
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 170 grams of plain flour
  • 3/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tsp charcoal powder

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C.
  • In a mixer or mixing bowl, cream softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I’m using Gavia Natural Sweetener which is made from Stevia.
  • Crack in an egg one at a time.
  • Then, drizzle in vanilla extract.
  • Gently stir in plain flour and baking powder.
  • You would want to mix cocoa powder, charcoal powder and hot water in another bowl into a paste in between.
  • Once your batter is well combined, portion out a third of the batter into another mixing bowl. Mix in your chocolate paste with the batter thoroughly.
  • Transfer half of the vanilla batter into the loaf pan. Then, transfer all of the chocolate batter for the second layer. Cover it with the rest of the vanilla batter as the third layer.
  • Using a fork, swirl the batter, go back and forth for a few times to make sure that the two batter are well marbled.
  • Bake it in the oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before slicing it up. It can keep well for up to 5 days in room temperature.

I tried numerous Burnt Cheesecake from different cafes and I think I came up with one recipe that will sure to please everyone. It’s definitely not your usual cheesecake recipe, or one that is conventional. Since this cheesecake is so simple to make, you really need layers of flavors in order to bring out the most of the cake. What I did was to incorporate some of the more pungent cheese like parmesan to give that wonderful cheesy aroma. And if you guys have been following my recipes, you would know that yogurt is my favorite ingredient to add when it comes to cheesecake! Yogurt helps to enhance the flavor of the cream cheese, giving it a more tangy flavor to the cheesecake.

White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) 无奶无蛋素食白吐司/面包

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

Some of my friends are vegan, they can’t take in eggs or any dairy products. I realized such a simple commodity like a basic white bread is hard for them to just buy over the counter in the bread section at the supermarket. So, I challenged myself to recreate it in order to surprise them with some when I meet them. I tried countless different recipes and many didn’t wow me. Finally, I settled on this after many revisions.

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

It’s so soft and compact, just like a good enriched white bread you would get from your local bakery store. The key ingredient to make the bread still so soft and fluffy without any milk or butter is water. Don’t bother trying to substitute with almond or soy milk. It would make the bread too dense and heavy. Water makes the dough rise up well, allowing the bread to be springy and soft when it’s baked. Instead, use water and soy milk powder. You get the lovely nutty flavour from the soy milk powder while retaining the properties you would want to get when using water to make your dough.

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

The first slice (with the crust) will never taste good. I mean, I know there are some people who like to eat that particular part of bread, but not my family! I usually will throw that away, especially when I wrap it up with a clear plastic bag. This way, the beauty of the inside can be revealed to everyone. 

Some may ask me, “Zong Han, why don’t you just bake it in the bread machine?”. Personally, I don’t like the result of my bread when it is being baked in the bread machine. Some of the reasons,

  • Crust is too thick to my liking
  • Weird shape, hard to portion, hard to cut
  • Texture of the bread is too hollow

 When we re-shape our dough the 2nd time, it gives the yeast a chance to work on the proofing evenly. This will help the dough to rise well, allowing it to have smaller air bubbles, resulting in finer texture when it is being baked. Moreover, we have greater control over how it can turn out. If you want to make into dinner rolls or buns, feel free to do so. It is a versatile recipe.

  • Transfer into a greased bread tin and let it proof in a warm environment for about 50 minutes until it reaches 80% of the pan. Cover the lid and let it proof for another 15 minutes while you preheat your oven to 180C. If you like your crust to be darker, you could bake it at 200C.
  • Bake it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Once baked, carefully unmould the bread immediately and let it cool over a wire rack with a piece of cloth covering lightly.
  • Once it is fully cooled, use a bread knife or an electric knife to slice the bread neatly in an orderly manner. Then wrap it up with a plastic wrap to store the bread.

It’s weekday evening, you want something quick and simple. Nothing too fancy, but not too shabby. Whether it’s just for just you and your partner, or you have asked a friend or two who stays nearby to come by after work for chitchat session, this baked rice recipe will sure be ready in under 30 minutes.

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

The key ingredient to this recipe is actually the curry paste. Not only it has species in it, but it also contains garlic and onion, allowing you to skip the process of chopping those up. Any brand of the curry paste is fine, go with what you prefer and adjust the flavour accordingly to your spicy level. For me, I enjoy making it from scratch. What I usually do is to blitz up some curry powder along with curry leaves, dried chilis, garlic, onion, ginger, cinnamon powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce and a drizzle of vegetable oil to emulsify everything into a smooth paste and stick it into the fridge. It’s super convenient when your curry cravings kick in or when you have an unexpected guest to impress.

For versatility, I used one of my Tefal Ingenio pans for this recipe. From stir-frying to baking to serving, I have only used one pan, saving me some time and effort when cleaning up later on. That’s the great thing about Tefal Ingenio, it can be used on the hob, in the oven, as a serving plate for a dish and even store leftover food into the fridge.

Each Ingenio set comes with a removable handle which is used across all the pans. And since there is no handle sticking out when you are not using, you could store the pans away easily by stacking it up and tucking it away in a corner of your cabinet.
