    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 …

    Chestnut Ice Cream

    I occasionally purchase Sweetened Chestnut Paste. The purpose is to make ‘Mont Blanc Cake’, which has a very special meaning to me. 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 …

    Coffee Panna Cotta with Kahlúa

    Coffee lovers would enjoy this coffee flavoured Panna Cotta. This recipe is almost identical to my Panna Cotta recipe. I simply replaced 1/2 of Milk with 1/2 cup strong Espresso. Instant Coffee Granules can be used. If you don’t have a bottle of Kahlúa, make a simple Coffee Syrup. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients Panna Cotta2 …

    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 …

    Pumpkin & Rum Raisin Ice Cream

    I have a super easy Ice Cream recipe ‘Azuki Ice Cream’. The ingredients are Tsubu-an (Sweet Azuki Paste) and Thickened Cream. I made this ‘Pumpkin Ice Cream’ in the same way. I first made sweet Pumpkin Paste and mixed it with whipped Cream. I wanted to add Rum rather than Vanilla, so I added Rum-steeped …

    No-bake Cheesecake with Lemon Curd Topping

    No-bake Cheesecake can be made without Gelatine and I have a recipe ‘Super Easy No-bake Cheesecake’. Today I added Gelatine and the cheesecake had an excellent texture. I made a top layer of Lemon Curd that is also softly set. Everyone enjoyed it and I am quite happy with the result. This No-bake Cheesecake is …

    Yoghurt Mousse Jelly

    I am a big fan of Jelly Desserts and I often make them. The standard ratio of Gelatine Powder & Liquid is 2g (1/2 teaspoon) : 100ml. I make Jelly based on this ratio. This is my basic Yoghurt Mousse Jelly, which has fairly firm texture if you use Greek Yoghurt. You can add some …

    Apple Juice & Vodka Jelly

    Many people are making this Apple Juice Jelly that has a resemblance to foamy Beer. Beer look-alike Jelly can be alcoholic, can’t it? Then I decided to add Vodka to it. You can use ‘Umeshu’, Brandy OR other Liquor instead. The white foamy top is the same Jelly that is just whipped up. *Warning: This …

    Frozen Cream Cheese Dessert

    This dessert is super easy to make and everyone would love it. It is best when softly frozen, but you can enjoy it unfrozen just like a mousse. Freeze it in a large container OR individual serving glasses. You may wish to increase the amount of Sugar as 2 tablespoons seems too small, but you …

    Strawberry Milk Jelly

    I tried to make ‘Strawberry Milk Jelly’. All recipes that I found required heating Milk and Sugar first, then add Gelatine, and finally add pureed Strawberries. I tried one recipe and I was totally disappointed. Guess what happened when I added pureed Strawberries to the warm milk mixture? Milk curdled because of the acidity of …

    Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches

    It can be a fun family activity to make these ‘Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches’. Using store-bought biscuits, it’s easy to make. Today I used Arnott’s Chocolate Ripple biscuits. You would need a cookie cutter that matches the size and shape of the biscuits you use. *You might prefer my Egg-free Matcha Ice Cream recipe. Makes …
