Matcha/ Cocoa Spiral Mooncakes with Red bean/ Sesame Mochi Filling

Let me first start off with a heartfelt apology to everyone out there who has been following my website and saw that it was made private. I realise that I have been very irresponsible to jump into a two-year hiatus so abruptly and without warning. You could say that I’ve been going through a pretty … Continue reading

Pierre Herme’s Cheesecake, Blueberryfied

In the past year, I decided to challenge myself in baking. Put aside all fear of failure. Step out of the basics. Venture into the world of gourmet desserts. Because that’s what “growing” and “learning” is supposed to be. Doing what you’ve never done before.

Hazelnut Opera Cake

After months of school in Taiwan, I’ve realised that there’s something scarily wrong in society. It may be the influence of the media, according to my analysis, that’s making girls feel that they have to conform to the media’s definition of what is “beauty” in order to fit into society. My skinny underweight friends in … Continue reading

Super Soft Mochi 超軟又Q的麻署

One of my favourite foods is mochi. That soft, chewy texture and fragrance of glutinous rice never fails to trigger my appetite. In Taiwan, I ate some of the best mochi I’ve ever had in my life, from 一之軒. It was super soft and almost melt-in-the-mouth, with the right amount of chewiness. I decided to come … Continue reading

In the past three months, I’ve baked nothing, cooked nothing, and yet my brain crushes me with constant thoughts about baking and cooking. Sometimes creative food ideas keep popping up in my head just as I’m … Continue reading

Guilt Free Decadent Malted Marbled Banana Bread

Good ol’ banana bread. With swirls of malt. And studded with chocolate chips. Topped with crumble. A banana bread really can’t get better than this. That its low fat is just a bonus.

Cocoa Milo Truffles (Reduced Fat and Sugar)

I had never thought I would make truffles. Truffles are the creamier sister of chocolate that’s, more fattening, artery-clogging, round, eaten on its own, too insignificant to be filling and too high in calories to remove the damage it brings to one’s conscience (darn, I could have eaten 20 biscuits and swallowed the same amount … Continue reading
