    Rice Flour Pound Cake

    On the other day, I was requested to bake Gluten Free Cake. I often use Almond Meal for this purpose, but I didn’t have it. I don’t buy Gluten Free Flour Mix. So I used the most commonly available Rice Flour and baked my ‘Basic Pound Cake’ simply replacing Wheat Flour with Rice Flour, but …

    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 …

    Coconut Cake

    ‘Sachi’s Coconut Cookies’ are supposed to be flat and crispy, but sometimes they turn rather round and soft. Those soft ones are actually quite popular.

    Steamed Lemon Cake

    Steaming is a brilliant way to make cakes. It makes the softest and moistest cakes. You don’t need any special equipments. I use a cake tin, but you can cook this cake in a heat-proof bowl, ramekins, mugs, baking-paper-lined bamboo basket or anything you can pour the cake mixture in. Makes 18cm OR smaller Round …

    Steamed Matcha Cake

    Steaming is not the popular method to make cakes in Australia. I have made cakes using different methods such as oven, steamer, frying pan and rice cooker, and I can say that the steamer makes the softest and moistest cakes. Today, to make this cake, I used a pot and a flat steamer rack, which …

    Rice Cooker Chocolate Cake

    I still have no access to my oven in the kitchen that is under repair. Actually the repair work hasn’t started yet. So, I am making cakes using my rice cooker, which I found the easiest & most energy-efficient way to cook cakes. Not all cake recipes work well for rice cooker method, but this …
