    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.

    Custard Jelly with Caramel Sauce

    Creamy Agar Milk Jelly & Mango

    I used to make Kanten jelly often, but Kanten is not easy to find. These days I often use Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In Vegetarian Gelling Powder that is Agar.

    Bread & Butter Pudding

    ‘Bread Butter Pudding’ is NOT a familiar food to most Asian people. I didn’t know it. It’s a humble dessert that can be made with the ingredients that most people have at home. I am not a big fan of it, but I make it for my husband, who is very fond of it as …
