Kidz Korner

Hi All, my nephew Tejas sometime back bullied his grandmother to make him butter sugar toast and top it off with milo powder. His ever-loving grandmother set about making the toast as per his request and when it was ready, he casually says that he was just joking! Kidz these days! (that’s his favourite line…

Choco-Vanilla Cupcakes

I find baking very therapeutic, like watching movies.… ha ha. And when I am in the mood, I will start searching the internet high and low, hoping that I would have ready stock of the ingredients required. Usually I prepare what I want to bake in advance, to ensure that I have all the ingredients…

Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizzas? And better yet, if it’s homemade! This is one of the easiest meals to dish up, as you can always keep stock of the pizza base in the freezer and just buy the ingredients you like to go as your toppings when you’re in the mood for some homemade pizzas. Skip…

Glazed Orange Bundt Cake

Couple of months back, I had the Orange Infused Sujee Cake from All Things Delicious and ever since then, I’ve been searching the net for that particular recipe. I was planning to bake that for my birthday last month but changed my mind at the last minute. I decided to keep that for another day…

Pear Upside Down Cake

This recipe is from my dear friend, Rochelle’s mum. I got to know Rochelle in Dubai when we worked together. Needless to say, that we bonded together over food and shopping! More so over food, ‘cos she loves the local food of Singapore and anyone who loves the Singapore local cuisine is my bestie! 😉…

Butter Cake

I was in the mood to bake and thought why not bake a good ole butter cake the way my mum used to bake for us when we were kids. She was taught baking by her aunties in Singapore and I guess you could call this a pound cake cos the measurement was the same…

Cupcakes

I usually have a hard time finding a baking recipe with metric measurements, as most measurements are in the U.S. cups or pounds. Recently I read somewhere that there is a slight difference between UK and US cups. Though the difference is very small, it doesn’t help a stickler like me. Oh, why can’t everyone…

Muffins

I was about to start by writing “I love muffins”, but then I would probably write the same for cupcakes and cakes and for almost everything else! And is there any difference between cupcakes and muffins, other than size? Apparently you can have a muffin for breakfast but not a cupcake. I honestly don’t know…

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I’ve baked this cake umteen times now and each time it’s a big hit! Traditionally you see the pineapple rings cut into half and placed in the bottom of the baking tray. But I used the cubes instead and cut them into halves and placed them like this in the tray, pictured below. It looks…

Almond Cake

I always look for easy recipes just so I get confident as I am very particular if the cake does not turn out right. This recipe looked good and is easy to follow. I must say this cake is very delicious but had such a sugar rush as it was just too sweet! Honestly this…
