    Coffee Bavarois

    I think my ‘Coffee Panna Cotta’ is pretty delicious, but it would be difficult to beat this ‘Coffee Bavarois’ which has superior flavour and texture. The ingredients of Panna Cotta and Bavarois are almost identical, but this Bavarois is made with Egg Yolks. It’s easy to make, at leat my recipe is easy. Makes 4 …

    Super Easy Cream Cheese Mousse

    My ‘Super Easy No-bake Cheesecake’ is literally SUPER EASY. You only need basic ingredients, BUT you must use full-fat Cream Cheese and Thickened Cream (OR Heavy Cream). This ‘Cream Cheese Mousse’ is almost identical to the Cheesecake, but you can use fat-reduced light type products because the mixture should be set in the serving glasses …

    Pear & Snow Fungus in Syrup

    I use Snow Fungus mainly for salads and soups, but I recently discovered that Snow Fungus is often used for sweets in some Asian countries.

    Dark Cherry Granita

    The other day I made ‘Black Forest Cake’ for my son’s birthday. Every time I use Canned Dark Cherries, I feel guilty about letting the unused purple syrup go into the drain. I wondered if I could make something with it? Then I made it into Granita. How simple is that? It was actually a …

    Choc Ripple Biscuits & Raspberry Mess

    If you are familiar with Arnott’s Choc Ripple Biscuits, you probably know ‘Choc Ripple Log Cake’. The very dry biscuits turn into moist chocolate cake when covered with whipped Cream. This dessert is the same thing, but I added Raspberry Sauce to it. It is easiest to set all ingredients in the serving glasses. Makes …

    Tapioca Matcha Milk Jelly

    It was my husband who told me about Creamy Tapioca Pudding that many Australians love. I have tried to make it several times following the instruction printed on the package of Tapioca Pearls, and I always burned the bottom of the saucepan. I ended up creating my own Tapioca Milk Jelly. This is Matcha version …

    Vegetarian Coffee Jelly

    I believe the best Vegetarian option to set the jelly desserts is Agar Agar, that has superior texture than Kanten. However, Agar Agar and Kanten are not widely available where I live. I use Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In’ Vegetarian Gelling Powder and I am a big fan of the product. This is how I make my favourite …

Today I found some leftover Chestnut Paste that needed to be used as the best before date was near. I mixed it with my ‘Easiest Vanilla Ice Cream’ mixture to make this Ice …

  • Azuki (Red Beans) Cold Sweets

    Azuki Panna Cotta

    I tried to make Azuki flavoured Panna Cotta. I mixed Panna Cotta mixture with Tsubu-an (Sweet Azuki Paste). It was supposed to be a creamy burgundy coloured jelly, but the mixture set in such a pretty gradation of colour because Azuki Paste is heavy, especially the unbroken beans are heavy. Unfortunately it is hard to …
