    Sugar Topped Lemon Shortbread

    Several years ago, I bought a bag of Raw Sugar to make ‘Kasutera’ Cake. I still have a lot of it because it’s been difficult for me to use those large Sugar crystals. I am trying to use it up now as it is getting old. ‘Sugar Coated Cookies‘ is a good way to use …

    Simple Yoghurt & Lemon Cake

    Apple & Lemon Curd Shortcake

    My husband’s great auntie Betty’s Belgian Shortcake was absolutely delicious. I made the same shortcake with different filling today. I used Stewed Apples and Lemon Curd. Why? Because I had Stewed Apples that was getting old and I needed to use it up. This happens frequently since my family’s fruit consumption dropped after my daughter …

    Rice Cooker Soufflé Cheesecake

    Japanese Soufflé Cheesecake needs to be steam baked using a water bath. The batter is simple to make, but it’s tricky to keep the right temperature for the perfect result. Today I was just curious to find out what would happen if I cook it in my rice cooker, as I know Rice Cooker is …

    Lemon Chicken

    My ‘Lemon Chicken’ is, in other words, ‘Kara-age’ (Japanese style Fried Chicken) with Lemon Sauce. I deep-fry the Chicken, but you can cook it in your favourite way. The main part of this dish is the sweet & sour Lemon Sauce. I always find the store-bought Lemon Chicken is too sweet. You can season the …
