    My ‘Melting Moments’ With Lemon Cream

    The original English ‘Melting Moments’ are different cookies. But, here in Australia, ‘Melting Moments’ look like these. My cookies are custard shortbread, that contains custard powder. For a long time, I underrated custard powder because I thought making custard with custard powder was unthinkable. However, good quality custard powder contains only ‘Cornflour, Salt, Flavour from …

    Doughnuts

    My Doughnuts recipe is based on my sweet bread dough recipe. Firmer dough is easier to manage, so you can add extra Flour to make the dough firmer. I use a round scone cutter to cut out discs and a small vegetable cutter’s other end to cut out centres. Some people do not cut out …

    Simple Carrot Cake

    This cake is not very sweet. Because I stared making this cake for my then very young children as a substitute for bread and I didn’t want it sweet at all. Lately I add Sugar, and you may wish to add extra Sugar to make it properly sweet cake, but I like to eat it …

    Passionfruit Icing

    Our next-door neighbours, Mr. & Mrs. Taylor, planted some Passionfruit along the fence some years ago. The passionfruit plants have grown so well, even over our trees and bushes.

    Apple & Orange Cake

    This cake used to be an Orange Cake. I started adding Apple, then the recipe has been altered repeatedly. Dried Black Currants, which are not so sweet or sour, are a good addition to this cake, I think, but it is optional. The most important ingredient of this cake is Orange Zest. I recommend to …

I love the rich baked cheesecake but I sometimes want to eat this delicate & light Japanese style cheesecake. If I want to eat it, I have to make it. Here is my recipe …

    My ‘Gateau Au Chocolat’

    I do not know the reason why this type of chocolate cake is particularly called ‘Gateau Au Chocolat’ in Japan. It’s French and it means ‘Chocolate Cake’. ‘Gateau Au Chocolat’ is quite rich as it usually contains plenty of chocolate, butter, cream and sugar. But my ‘Gateau Au Chocolat’ is quite light as the recipe …
