    Orange Yoghurt Mousse

    Because my ‘Blueberry Yoghurt Jelly Dessert’ was so successful, I altered it to create another jelly dessert. I used Orange Juice instead of Milk and Cream, and added Yoghurt and Egg White. Because of the 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier I added, the result was almost Grand Marnier Mousse. WHEW!!! Please add it with caution, and …

    Creamy Agar Milk Jelly & Mango

    I used to make Kanten jelly often, but Kanten is not easy to find. These days I often use Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In Vegetarian Gelling Powder that is Agar. It doesn’t have an unpleasant smell like Gelatine and it sets clean and clear jelly. I like its texture better than Kanten’s. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 1 to …

    Matcha Tiramisu

    I love the bitter flavour of Matcha, but my family members don’t like it.

    Tiramisu Cake

    My ‘Tiramisu Cake’ is almost same as my ‘Super Easy Tiramisu’. I use ‘Basic Sponge Cake’ instead of Savoiardi (Sponge Fingers). However, the ordinary Tiramisu filling is too soft and runny for this cake. I add Gelatine to make the texture of filling like mousse, so that you can assemble the cake just like using …
