    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. You can make a sponge cake using just Mashed Potatoes replacing Wheat Flour, but I prefer the cake made with Almond Meal …

    Mixed Fruit Pound Cake

    I had a lot of Mixed Dried Fruit in my pantry. I decided to make a Fruit Cake and looked for recipes. I found many recipes on the internet, but most recipes are for a very large cake. I decided to use my Basic Pound Cake recipe, replaced Caster Sugar with Brown Sugar, and added …

    No-bake Cheesecake with Strawberry Jelly Topping

    No-bake Cheesecake can be made without Gelatine and I have a recipe ‘Super Easy No-bake Cheesecake’. However, a small amount of Gelatine makes superior texture. Today I made the top layer with fresh Strawberries that are in season now. I used Arnott’s Choc Ripple Cookies fo the base, but you can use your favourite sweet …

    Pear Clafoutis

    ‘Clafoutis’ is a simple French dessert and it is like thick custard. Traditionally Clafoutis is made with Cherries, but I use a variety of Fruit. Peaches and Nectarines are good.

    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.

    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’.

    Brownies

    ‘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 …

This is a Sponge Cake. I sliced it in half and sandwiched with Sweet Azuki Paste, Strawberries and whipped Cream. My husband doesn’t like Sweet Azuki …

    Banana Cupcakes

    I have a great Banana Cake recipe and it’s ‘My Legendary Banana Cake’, but the amount of the batter is not right for 12 cupcakes. I altered the recipe and made this new one that is perfect to make 12 cupcakes. You must use Very-Well-Ripe Bananas. I bake these cupcakes only when I have almost …
