    Rhubarb Crumble Cupcakes

    Rhubarb can be used for many desserts, but I believe this is the easiest way to use it. Just add thinly sliced Rhubarb to Cupcakes. I used my ‘Basic Plain Cupcakes’ recipe but I increased the amount of Sugar as Rhubarb is quite sour. You don’t need to precook Rhubarb. Crunchy crumble topping is optional. …

    Orange Jelly

    The other day I happened to see a recipe of Orange Jelly. I was very surprised to find the recipe required an unthinkable amount of Gelatine Powder.

    Dairy-free Canned Apple Cake

    This is Dairy-free version of my ‘Whatever Fruit You Have’ Cake. I used Sunflower Oil instead of Butter. I like the fluffy and soft texture of the cake that is made with Oil, but the flavour can be bland. Spice, Citrus Juice, Vanilla, Brandy can improve the flavour. I added all of them. Cake Tin …

    Apple Fritters

    I use a same volume of ‘Flour’ and ‘Egg & Water mixture’ to make Tempura batter. For Fritter batter, I do the same. It’s easy to remember. Today I used Milk instead of Water and added a little Sugar. You can use the same batter for other fruit fritters, however, you need to coat the …
