In last year’s Cookbook Challenge, I tried to make a pandan cake and failed spectacularly! It looked embarrassingly bad! That put me off trying to make it again, even though I had a lot of helpful readers give me links to recipes for pandan cakes that worked for them. One night when I hosted a […]


Theme: Green Cookbook: The Real Taste of Indonesia The first thing that came to mind for ‘green’ week was a pandan cake so I looked through my cookbooks for a recipe. I only had one pandan cake recipe in all my cookbooks, but one was all I needed. Pandan chiffon cake brings me back to […]


Theme: Soft Cookbook: The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander The first time I tried to make this recipe was a few months ago. I had agreed to make a birthday cake for hubby’s cousin and found out he likes cheesecakes, so what better recipe to use than one that had “best ever” in its name? […]


Theme: Citrus Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Bake Week 1 of the Cookbook Challenge is almost at an end and hopefully all participants got their recipes completed! It is still not too late for new people to join. You can find more details here. The theme for Week 1 was citrus. I think it actually […]

Every time I see the Lindt 100g blocks on special for less than $2 a block, I always go and buy a few of the 70% ones. They are starting to pile up now because I haven’t made anything chocolatey for a while so I went hunting for a chocolate cake recipe. Most of the […]

Baking every weekend has now become a regular event for me. It may not seem like much to all you seasoned bakers, but before I started this blog, I could count the number of times I baked on one hand! I have gone through my modest collection of cookbooks and made a list of the […]


Recipe: Best Ever Banana Cake

This banana cake is my “go to” foolproof cake recipe and the cake I make the most. Even though I didn’t really bake before starting this food blog, I did make this cake numerous times because it was so easy! No beaters are required – just gentle stirring. Most people who try this cake say […]


Where possible, I tend to make things in half quantities to try out a new recipe. I don’t like to be wasteful just incase it doesn’t work out, and I also don’t want to be a glutton by eating it all if it does work out! I’m not sure if it really affects the recipe […]

Whenever I am offered apple crumble for dessert, I usually scrape out the chunky apple pieces and eat the pastry covered in the apple sauce and the crunchy crumble! There is something about chunky fruit pieces in dessert that I don’t like. But crumble I love! So you can imagine my joy when I saw […]

I was on the hunt for a delicious chocolate cake recipe. It is an easy task because there are so many out there, but it is a hard job choosing the right delicious one. I am the first to admit I am a beginner baker. I haven’t baked many times in my life, but I […]
