    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.…

    Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿) / Apam Balik

    Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿), which also can be known as Apam Balik in Melayu is a traditional turnover pancake filled with fillings. It is thought to be common to find these sold on roadside streets throughout Malaysia and Singapore (Well, it’s 2019, you can only get these at a hawker centre now). While it’s fluffier than the American counterpart, Min Chiang Kueh is like the little sister of the Indonesian Martabak Manis, which still holds in place at the top for its rich variety of fillings and mighty thickness. In the article, I’ll be sharing two types of filling I would typically go for, the traditional classic that calls for crushed peanuts and sugar, and…

    Lemon Blueberry Muffins

    I have been pretty busy but would still want to have something delicious to start my day. Lemon Blueberry Muffin comes to mind and it is really very easy to make! Make it the night before and enjoy it on the go the next morning! I often bring extra to school to share with my friends and they loved it. It’s such an easy recipe to make, literally, you could make this with just one large bowl. Yet, how comforting it could be in the morning, especially when you know your day will be busy. If you ask me, muffin or cupcake, I would always go for muffins. They are simple, delicious…

    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…

    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…
