    Mashed Potato & Almond Cake

    Sweet Potatoes are often used for making cakes and pies, but ordinary Potatoes are not. I recently leaned that Potatoes are used for sweet cakes in many regions in Europe, so I tried.

    Oven-baked Brioche French Toast

    Sticky Date Cupcakes with Caramel Sauce

    My very first experience to taste ‘Dates’ was Sticky Date Pudding. It was after I moved to Australia. I liked the flavour of Sticky Date Pudding, but I thought it was overwhelmingly sweet.

    Yoghurt Scones

    My family’s consumption of Yoghurt has dropped after we stopped eating Granola, that is a very high calorie food. I have been making Greek Yoghurt at home for many years, but I must say I have to stop making it as nobody is eating it. The reason why I made these Yoghurt Scones was simple. …

    Lemon Magic Cake

    Magic Cake turns into three layers when baked. Sometimes it turns into only 2 layers of Custard and Sponge, but it is still good. My basic ‘Magic Cake’ recipe is very versatile and you can add extra ingredient(s) for flavours. Today I added Lemon Zest and Lemon Juice. I was happy with the result. The …

    Magic Cake

    You haven’t heard of Magic Cake? Have a look at the cake carefully, it has three layers. The bottom layer is like ‘Fudge’, the middle layer is ‘Custard’, and the top layer is ‘Sponge’. This cake batter naturally separates into these layers when baked. This recipe is almost identical to my Basic Sponge Cake. The …

    ‘Brownies’ is such a popular treat and there are hundreds of recipes out there. I am confident that my recipe is one of the easiest ones as you don’t need to weigh ingredients. And you don’t need to add a scary amount of Sugar. I actually tried to reduce Sugar further, but I concluded that …
