    No-Egg Sponge

    The other day my daughter asked me if I had a recipe for ‘No-Egg Tiramisu’. I though the cream can be made without Eggs, but how can I make Sponge Fingers without Eggs? That’s the beginning of my challenge to create ‘No-Egg Sponge’ recipe. I got a hint from ‘Theo’s Sponge’, that is made with …

    Apple & Lemon Curd Shortcake

    My husband’s great auntie Betty’s Belgian Shortcake was absolutely delicious. I made the same shortcake with different filling today. I used Stewed Apples and Lemon Curd. Why? Because I had Stewed Apples that was getting old and I needed to use it up. This happens frequently since my family’s fruit consumption dropped after my daughter …

    Custard Puff Pastry Twists

    There is a baked pastry called ‘Escargot’, which I LOVE. The one a local bakery is selling has Custard and Sultanas in it. These ‘Puff Pastry Twists’ are inspired by the ‘Escargot’. It takes only a few minutes to make the Custard in the microwave. Using store-bought Frozen Butter Puff Pastry, these delicious Twists are …

    Sweet Soft Biscuits

    When I was a child, there was a sweet treat which I was very fond of. It looked like a large biscuit, but the texture was softer and it was almost like a dry sponge cake. I recently discovered a recipe of something that was very similar to that biscuit. The recipe says Bi-Carb Soda …

    Over Ripe Pear Crumble

    When I have some Over Ripe Pears, I usually bake ‘Pear Upside-down Cake’. ‘Rice Cooker Pear Upside-down Cake’ is easier. However, my husband recently stopped eating cakes and I shouldn’t bake cakes. So, I made this ‘Pear Crumble’ today. I used less amount of Butter and Sugar than this recipe, and it still tasted good. …

    Matcha Pound Cake

    My Basic Pound Cake recipe is easy to remember. You would need 125g of each Butter, Sugar, Eggs and Self-Raising Flour (OR Plain Flour & Baking Powder). By adding extra ingredients to it, you can make a variety of Pound Cakes. Today I added Matcha Powder and Rum. White Chocolate Chips OR Walnuts can be …

    Spiced Shortbread Biscuits

    I often bake Cinnamon Crumble. Just Cinnamon Crumble only, without fruit OR cake. Then I realised it is the same thing as Shortbread which is made with Butter, Sugar and Flour. I stared adding other Spices to Cinnamon Crumble dough, and using Brown Sugar instead of White Sugar. The yummy Spiced Crumbles are transformed into …

    Baked Yoghurt Cake

    A large amount of Yoghurt was getting old in the fridge and I needed to use it up. I found a Baked Yoghurt Cake recipe on the internet and I tried it. The result was BAD. The cake looked like Baked Cheesecake but it didn’t taste good at all. I tried another recipe and I …

    Easter ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’ are Ukrainian Bread Rolls. They can be savoury OR sweet, and baked OR deep-fried. As the ‘Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’ that I made the other day were so good, today I used the same dough to make these Easter ‘Pampushky’. They are almost same as Hot Cross Buns, but the texture is similar to Doughnuts. …

    Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’, the Ukrainian Bread Rolls, can be baked OR deep-fried. ‘Pampushky’ can be sweet, and sweet ‘Pampushky’ are often deep-fried and filled with Fruit Jam. Today I baked these sweet ‘Pampushky’. It’s very difficult to wrap ordinary Jam with bread dough. The easiest way is filling Jam after ‘Pampushky’ are baked. Makes 10 to 12 …
