    Instant Lychee Tea

    It was when I was making ‘Instant Iced Tea’, I realised that I could make Lychee Tea in the same way. I made ‘Jasmine Tea & Lychee Agar Jelly’ the other day and I saved the leftover syrup from the can of Lychees and froze it in an ice tray. Using the frozen Lychee Syrup, …

    Jasmine Tea & Lychee Agar Jelly

    I used to use Gelatine Powder to make this jelly, but lately I prefer Agar Agar Powder. The texture of Gelatine is more suitable for some types of jellies, but Agar Agar Powder is suitable for this jelly. It is so easy to use and it doesn’t have unpleasant smell like Gelatine. Agar Agar Powder …

    Strawberry Cupcakes

    I used my ‘Basic Plain Cupcakes’ recipe to make these Strawberry Cupcakes, but I replaced Milk with pureed Strawberries. As the Strawberries that I used were a little sour, I should have added extra Sugar. These pink coloured Cupcakes look pretty and they smelled amazing when baking in the oven. You may wish to decorate …

    Lychee Tea

    It was my daughter who introduced Lychee Tea to me. It was a very sweet but refreshing drink. I usually don’t enjoy very sweet drinks, but I enjoyed it. Fresh Lychees are not easy to find where I live, but Canned Lychees are available from many supermarket stores. I bought one from a Woolworths store. …

    No-Bake Mango Cheesecake

    I had a large Mango in the fridge and I knew we needed to eat it soon. Then my husband bought two Mangos, and there were three. That’s enough to make this delicious dessert. It is not difficult to make, but it takes time. If you make it in the morning, it will be ready …

    Fruit Salad Jelly (Vegetarian)

    This Fruit Salad Jelly is usually made with Kanten and it is very popular in Japan. My mother used to set it in cups for individual serves. Today I used my old Tupperware Jelly Mould that I bought decades ago and I am still using. It was a good investment. Kanten is hard to find …

    Candied Orange Peel

    Recently I made several cakes that required Candied Orange Peel. Then I discovered that no shop sells it where I live. I used Mixed Citrus Peel that is widely available. My family members regularly eat Oranges and throw away the peel. So, I decided to make Candied Orange Peel today. It is much easier than …

    No-Knead Panettone Style Sweet Bread

    My ‘Panettone Style Sweet Bread’ is easy to make, but it takes time and folding the Mixed Fruit into the dough is not super easy, I admit. Today I tried to make the same Sweet Bread in a different way. I didn’t knead the dough. I just mixed everything together with extra Milk and made …

    Panettone Style Sweet Bread

    At Christmas time every year, I wanted to make Panettone, but I have never tried it. Because I didn’t have a suitable cake tin and didn’t want to buy rather expensive Panettone paper cases. The other day, when I was making a soup, I looked at the saucepan and thought it was a good size …
