    Mud Cake

    It was in Melbourne many years ago, I first came across this unbelievable cake. I could hardly finish one slice of the cake because it was so sweet and so rich, and the slice was enormous. It was a culture shock to me. I started baking Mud Cake for my son’s birthday because he always …

    Piña Calada Cake

    ‘Piña Colada’ is a sweet cocktail made with Rum, Coconut Cream or Coconut Milk, and Pineapple Juice. I made this cake for my daughter’s 21st birthday on her request. This very alcoholic cake is only for grown-ups. You can make this cake without Rum, but it would be a Pineapple & Coconut Cake. Still delicious, …

    Chestnut Cream ‘Rugelach’

The filling can be anything I like, so I used my favourite Sweetened Chestnut Cream this time, wondering if Chestnut flavour goes well with Cream Cheese flavoured pastry. Of course it does!!! Makes 16 Rolls Ingredients …

    Peanut ‘Sembei’ Biscuits

    ‘Sembei’ are, most commonly, Japanese rice crackers. Soy sauce flavoured ones are the most popular, but there are sweet types. The ingredients for those sweet ‘Sembai’ can include Wheat Flour, Sugar and Eggs. Basically they are sweet biscuits. This ‘Peanut Sembei’ is one of them. Unsophisticated and rustic biscuits bring back my childhood memories. Makes …

    Jam & Coconut Slices

    Jam & Coconut Slices are popular, but I always find them too sweet. Then I made this recipe and the sweetness of the slices is just right for me. 2 tablespoons Sugar for the base might sound too little, but you must remember that the jam is very sweet. Today I used Lemon Curd, but …
