Writing this post is so going to make me look like a Masterchef groupie / copycat, especially after having made the Masterchef cupcake recipe and chocolate fondants, but I actually made these macaroons last week. They turned out to be a disaster and I was debating whether or not I should post about it, but […]

Fellow foodblogger Stephcookie let me know of her treasured foolproof basic cupcake recipe as part of my cupcake quest. She embarked on a similar quest a year ago and this has become her go to recipe. You can find her original recipe here. I was curious to taste the end product, which uses freshly squeezed […]

Who knew that Masterchef would be such a hit? It is a good thing that the show has taken Australia by storm because everyone should eventually learn how to cook at home. The show has inspired people to try out new things in the kitchen, myself included. Whenever I miss an episode, I always catch […]

I thought I should also post the basic cream cheese frosting that I use as my “go to” recipe and what I used for the cupcakes in the previous post. It’s easy to make and I know it works. I first discovered this recipe when I was making a banana cake – banana cake and […]

Whenever I remember, I will pick up a copy of the free Woolworths or Coles magazine (depending where I am doing my shopping), usually located at the checkout. Inside the magazine there are food stories, recipes and of course, a whole lot of advertising! I recently discovered that Woolworths has the magazine online complete with […]

In Masterchef Australia Episode 30 (Sun 31/05/09), the contestants’ mystery box challenge was to make a signature cupcake using a basic buttercake recipe. I searched the Masterchef website to find the recipe but there was no official one posted. There was a recipe posted in the forums which said it was from the show, so […]


Cupcake Quest – Basic Cupcake Recipe No. 1

While I was searching for a few different basic cupcake recipes to try, I realised that all recipes contained the same type of ingredients (butter, sugar, eggs, flour, milk, vanilla) but the quantities of each ingredient, the method of preparation of the batter and the baking times and temperatures were the things that differed. The […]

Mother’s Day lunch was at our place this year and I wanted to try something new for dessert. I have only tasted Portuguese custard tarts a few times before, preferring the Chinese yum cha egg tarts but I thought I would give it a go. The original recipe comes from Bill Granger, but Lorraine from […]

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 […]
