Highly recommended Bailey's Chocolate and Coffee Roll Cake 强推百利巧克力咖啡蛋糕卷 (中英加图对照食谱)

Yum


I'm back from a wonderful family winter vacations and having experienced freezing cold temperature at -9 degree Celsius as well as highly polluted air quality of PSI 500, am I glad to be home! My oven has rested well too for the past one month and it is all ready for moi to work it hard again...lol!

Here's sharing my new experiment and recipe of a roll cake which I have transformed into a Christmas log cake for my church Caregroup gathering last weekend. My friends who were my 'guinea pigs' gave thumbs up for it and they love the smooth, soft and bouncy cake texture. They told me that they have not tasted such nice roll cake texture before and they also love the chocolate and coffee cream fillings which is light and not too sweet. My hubby who hardly praises also commented that this is the best roll cake I have made so far!

As I was rushing to attend the gathering, I didn't have time to take out my DSLR camera to take some nice shots of the cake, only manage to snap one photo of the completed cake with my mobile phone.

I highly recommend you to give this cake a try and here's wishing everyone a Blessed and Joyous Christmas!

分享出国游玩回来的第一个作品,也是我做过最好吃的蛋糕卷,质感柔软又有弹性。把它装饰为木材蛋糕,拿去参加聚会,朋友们吃了都赞不绝口!强力推荐给大家!在此也祝大家有个愉快的圣诞!

Charcoal Chocolate Chiffon Cake 竹炭巧克力戚风蛋糕(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum



My last post on the Cream Cheese Chiffon Cake was very well received. Many readers have baked it and feedback that they love the delicate, moist and melt-in-the-mouth texture. They even commented that it tastes like the Japanese cotton cheesecake after chilling it in the fridge. Some have called it a white beauty because of it's pale and smooth colour. Here's how it looks if you haven't seen it and you can find the recipe 'here'. 



Today I shall share another chiffon cake recipe which I have created based on my knowledge learnt from the last chiffon cake. 


After this post, my oven will take a break as I'll be going off for my holidays soon. See you again when I am back in mid-December!  

分享最新创作后,我家的烤箱可以暂时休息了,因为主人要去旅行游玩咯,十二月中旬再回来! :)

Japanese Cream Cheese Chiffon Cake 日式奶油乳酪戚风蛋糕(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum


This is one of the best chiffon cake that I have ever made as it's so delicate and smooth and literally melts in the mouth! Everyone who tries the cake, loves it's super smooth and moist texture. Hub and kids went for second and third helpings after eating a piece!

这是我吃过最好吃的戚风蛋糕,老公和孩子们吃了一片后还会想要再吃!蛋糕的质感好轻柔,又松软,入口即化!

Really love this recipe taught by a Japanese champion cake talent. In the past, I used to whip up the meringue till stiff peak stage when making chiffon cake, now I have learnt that the best meringue stage is firm peak stage and it's best for making chiffon cake. Firm peak stage is in between soft peak and stiff peak, thus you have to concentrate hard while beating the egg whites in order not to overbeat it.

好喜欢这日本蛋糕达人所教的配方喔! 以往我都是把蛋白霜打到硬性发泡,现在才学到必须把蛋白打成较湿的中性发泡蛋白霜。这是介于湿性发泡与硬性发泡之间的阶段,蛋白霜立起的圆锥状前端微微往下低垂,才是制作戚风蛋糕最理想的蛋白霜状态!所以打发蛋白霜时,一定要专心,不可以打发过头哦!

Another tip for achieving soft, delicate and moist chiffon cake is to use more egg white than egg yolk. Thus, it is better to separate the egg white and egg yolk first then measure out the weight according to the recipe. This recipe is a definite keeper and I am sure gonna bake this again soon!

要制作出轻柔,松软又入口即化的戚风蛋糕最重要的就是微妙的食材比例。所以蛋白和蛋黄是以克来计算的,请大家将蛋白和蛋黄分开后,再仔细称量正确的量。这食谱真的很棒,值得收藏!

Charcoal Cheese Bread 竹炭起司面包(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum



This is my first time baking bread with charcoal powder. I first saw charcoal bread in Taiwan's bakery shops many years ago. Activated charcoal is well known for its detoxification benefits, In fact it is an ancient way to cleanse the system as it is the most absorbent material to get rid of toxins and impurities from the body. Bamboo charcoal has become a popular ingredient in cooking and baking. Besides bread, you can find charcoal snowskin mooncakes, charcoal pastry, charcoal ice-cream etc. Charcoal is almost tasteless and it is good to use as a natural colouring too.

French Classic & Matcha Madeleines 法式经典与抹茶马德莲蛋糕 (中英加图对照食谱)

Yum



The Madeleine is a traditional small cake from France. It is actually a very small sponge cake with a distinctive shell-like shape acquired from being baked in pans with shell-shaped depressions. There was a saying that this french pastry was created in the 19th century by a lady pastry cook, Madeleine Paulmier hence it was named after her. 

I made these lovely french cakes together with my 8-year-old boy two days ago. He came home in high spirit as he is the only one in class who scored full marks for his Mathematics examination paper which he took on Monday. Mathematics is his favourite subject, thus he is overjoyed! We decided to make some madeleines. I did the cake batter for the classic Madeleine while he watched. When I am done, he did the cake batter for Matcha madeleines all by himself! We had to put the batter into the fridge overnight, this is necessary so that the bumps or humps will develop during baking. 


We have an enjoyable time baking, bonding together and eating these tasty french cakes. Do give this simple recipe a try and wishing you a lovely and blessed weekend. :)

Matcha Ice-Cream- eggless version 抹茶冰淇淋- 无蛋版(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum



Matcha ice-cream has always been my favourite ice-cream. Many readers have tried my blog's earlier Homemade Matcha green tea ice-cream recipe and given good feedback. As it requires more steps, involving the cooking of the egg mixture to 85 degree Celsius, I decided to work out a recipe without using any eggs. After several experiments, finally I am satisfied with this eggless version. It tastes just as good! 

抹茶口味的冰淇淋是我最爱的雪糕。之前做了也在部落格分享过,试过的读者们都赞好吃。这次想省略鸡蛋,试验了好几次,终于满意这自创无蛋版的食谱,强力推荐给大家!如果你像我一样喜爱抹茶口味的甜品,肯定会喜欢的! 

I often get enquiries regarding the Tovolo Glide-A-Scoop ice-cream tub which 
I used to contain my homemade ice-cream. This tub can store up to 1.5 quarts of homemade ice cream/gelato/sorbet. It's non-slip base steadies the container while you effortlessly scoop along the slender tub and it's slim design fits into any tightly packed freezer door too. Good news! It is now available in Singapore and exclusively online at www.tovolo.com.sg

Nutella Ogura Cake 巧克力榛子酱相思蛋糕 (中英加图对照食谱)

Yum


My first attempt of baking an ogura cake - Ogura Colour De Quad cake was few months back and I like the way it turned out with four different colours using all natural colourings like blue pea flower, beet root powder and matcha powder. This time I decided to try Nutella flavour as I was craving for a chocolate cake. It turned out to be soft, super moist and chocolatey. I am giving myself two thumbs up for this cake as it is super delicious and I highly recommend you to try it!

Using the purple sweet potato powder I made 2 weeks ago, I have baked these butter cookies and am happy that it turned out a beautiful purplish pink which is acheived by using all natural colouring and nothing artificial at all!

Milo Ice-Cream (eggless version) 美禄巧克力冰淇淋- 无蛋版(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum


Hope you have enjoyed my creation of the Milo Ferrero Rocher Swiss Roll in my last post. This time I am gonna share another personal creation which also got the big thumbs up from my family. This Milo frozen treat can be made with or without an ice-cream maker and definitely cheers us up in this time of hazy condition in Singapore caused by the Indonesia fires. 

创作了美禄金沙巧克力卷后,又创作了无蛋版的美禄冰淇淋,家人一样赞好吃,好开心!即使没有家用冰淇淋器也一样可以做​的​出来!


Due to the deterioration of air quality, my family has been keeping all doors and windows shut (hubby even bought air-tight tapes to stick on the windows and doors to ensure a tight seal to prevent any air from coming through) and making our IQAir Healthpro air-purifier work extra hard. We are also diligent in donning our N95 masks when the PSI level hits unhealthy level.  

We are kind of disturb to see many people taking the haze too lightly and still do not wear N95 mask (surgical masks, tissues or handkerchiefs will not protect you at all!) at outdoors. According to Wikipedia, the PM 2.5 particles which made up the majority of haze particles is the deadliest form of air pollution due to their ability to penetrate deep into the lungs and blood streams unfiltered, causing DNA mutations, heart attacks, premature death and lung cancer, thus even short-term exposure can be damaging!  
 

Hence, I do urge my Singaporean and Malaysian readers to take good care during this haze period and be proactive in taking care of your own/family's health.

Milo Ferrero Rocher Swiss Roll 美禄金沙巧克力卷 (中英加图对照食谱)

Yum



Last week was a hectic week for me, visiting the hospital almost everyday! (you will know why if you have read my last post.) I am glad that the week ended well with good celebration of the mid-autumn festival with the extended family. 

To support my blogger friend, Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids, who is the host of this month Little Thumbs Up - Milo theme, I have actually come up with this Milo swiss roll recipe two weeks back but have no time to blog about it until now. 

I love Milo since young especially the Australian recipe which is tastier and more fragrant. Do you know how I like to enjoy my Milo? I usually put a few heaps of Milo powder in my glass of fresh milk, give it a slight stir before scooping up the clumps of Milo to eat, it's really shiok! ('Shiok' is a common slang word used in Singapore and Malaysia to express happiness, strong pleasure or tingling taste buds with regards of food)  

AsI have a box of Ferror Rocher chocolate sitting in the fridge, I decided to use it for the swiss roll fillings. I am delighted that the crushed hazelnuts, chocolate and wafer cream fillings turned out to be super delicious and it blended so well with the Milo swiss roll! My fussy hubby and kids gave a big thumbs up for this new creation. :) 

I have also used organic extra virgin coconut oil in this recipe and here's sharing the health benefits of it.

I have actually scheduled this week to bake more varieties of mooncakes but due to unforeseen circumstances, my girl injured her toe and I had to bring her to the hospital to see the Pediatric Orthopaedic and more visits to the hospital as my boy has to see Pediatric Ophthalmology and mum has to undergo minor surgery. So, I am left with just one day to bake before the mid-autumn festival this Sunday. I have chosen to try out this cheesy Shanghai Mooncake which is so much easier as compared to the traditional Cantonese style mooncakes. It turned out to be fragrant and tasty. Do give it a try if you have some time. :) 

Wishing all a blessed and happy mid-autumn! 
祝大家中秋快乐,月来月开心,月来月幸福,月来月甜蜜。

Quick & Easy Breadmaker French Loaf 简易法式面包机食谱(中英加图对照食谱)

Yum


This is my first time using Baguette flour to bake and I love the taste and texture of the french loaf which this flour has yielded. The baguette flour besides suitable for making baguettes & french loaf, it is also suitable for sourdough and all types of crusty artisan bread as it is able to give a rich flavour, crusty outer layer and great inner holes. 

My hubby who loves artisan bread gave a big thumbs up for this french loaf using the baguette flour as he loves the texture so much more compared to the Breadmaker Wholemeal French Loaf which I have baked using bread flour previously. I foresee myself to be baking bread more with this baguette flour to please my other half. ;)

It is not difficult to make your own fruit or vegetable powder at home.

Hence, to achieve my favorite color purple, I have made a pot of purple sweet potato powder which can be used for making bread, cookies, macarons, mooncakes, cakes etc. 

喜欢用全天然材料来烘焙与烹饪的我,自制了紫薯粉,打算用它来做紫色的月饼,饼干,马卡龙,面包等等。自然色素肯定比人工色素健康许多!

Homemade Low-Sugar Mung Bean Paste 自制低糖绿豆蓉 (中英食谱教程)

Yum


This is my first time making homemade bean paste and I am glad that I am in control of the sugar level and have made these low sugar version. Mung bean paste can be used for making many types of desserts like Jin Deui (a type of fried Chinese pastry made from glutinous rice flour, coated with sesame seeds on the outside and is crisp and chewy), Ang Ku Kueh (a small round or oval shaped Chinese pastry with soft stickyglutinous rice flour skin wrapped around a sweet filling in the centre),
 mooncakes etc. 
这是我第一次试做豆蓉,自己做的不但健康还可以控制糖份。绿豆蓉可以用来制作不同的甜点如煎堆/芝麻球一种油炸的甜点,用糯米粉制成,外层沾了芝麻,咬下去酥脆又有嚼劲)红龟粿,月饼等等。

I have used the low-sugar mung bean paste to make a batch of watermelon-shaped pastry mooncakes (
as seen below) using all natural ingredients and no artificial colourings or baking chemicals at all. Isn't it cute?

This famous 
Mrs NgSK butter cake recipe needs no introduction. It is so raved about in the bloggersphere and everyone who tried it deem it the best butter cake they have ever made. This recipe uses the egg separation method and yields a light, soft, moist and fragrant butter cake.

This is my trial bake here and I intend to make this again for my kids' teachers for the upcoming teacher's day.

Banana Nutella Pound Cake 香蕉榛果巧克力酱磅蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

Yum



I don't know about you but I love Sara Lee's pound cakes since I was a child and would always eat it together with a cup of fresh milk. Three months ago, I shared my 'Marble Chocolate Pound Cake ' and it was super well received as many who have baked it feedback that it tasted exactly like Sara Lee's marble pound cake.

As I had some full ripe bananas sitting on my wet kitchen counter top, I was thinking if I should use it to bake my all time favourite 'Banana Cake(this is another highly recommended cake which many of my readers have tried and feedback that it is so soft and fluffy) or try something new. Then that big bottle of Nutella caught my sight... and here you are a Banana Nutella pound cake which is fragrant and tasty! 

从小就爱吃莎莉蛋糕,前阵子做的“大理石巧克力磅蛋糕”很受欢迎,许多读者试了,反馈味道很像莎莉的大理石蛋糕。


因为看到厨房还剩几条熟透的香蕉,就在想,要不要拿来做我最喜欢又强力推荐的“香蕉蛋糕(质感超柔软又蓬松!)或是尝试其他没做过的糕点。想着想着就看到那大瓶的榛果巧克力酱......就把香蕉榛果巧克力酱磅蛋糕给做出来了,味道又香又美味!

Blueberry Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcake (cooked dough) with Blueberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream 蓝莓北海道戚风杯子蛋糕 (烫面)- 蓝莓瑞士奶油霜(中英食谱教程)

Yum

My second attempt using the cooked dough method to bake the Hokkaido chiffon cupcake and first attempt to whip up Swiss meringue buttercream (SMBC) and in Gula Melaka flavour last week was super well received. Many of my readers have tried and given big thumbs up for both cupcake and SMBC recipes. I have fallen in love with this cooked dough method* cupcake which yields softer and delicate cake texture and also fallen in love with the Swiss Meringue Buttercream which is very stable and can be left in the room temperature for many hours and still hold its shape without melting away. 

*Cooked dough meaning 烫面 in Chinese. The flour used in the chiffon cake recipe is cooked in warm oil before mixing with the meringue prior to baking as it will yield a softer and delicate cake texture. 

上星期做的北海道戚風杯子蛋糕加椰糖瑞士奶油霜非常受欢迎,许多读者尝试了都给好评!喜欢用烫面法*,因为做出来的蛋糕质感超柔软又细腻。喜欢这款瑞士蛋白奶油霜,因为不容易融化,容易造型,外形比较美观,可塑性强。

* 烫面解释 (来自君之) :烫面戚风,最关键的是“烫面”的过程,所谓“烫面”,从名字上理解,就是被烫过的面粉。最简单的解释是,面粉里的淀粉和蛋白质,在高温下改变性质后,产生很好的增稠力。也因为有烫面的存在,我们能够在戚风的配方里加入更多的液体,使我们做出的戚风在原本就细腻柔软的基础上更进一层楼,变得更柔更软更可口了。将面粉“烫”熟,使面粉内的淀粉发生糊化,进而吸收更多的水分。不过面粉不能直接用煮开的液体来烫,那样温度太高面粉会过度熟化,只需将液体煮热就可以。

My kids love this Hokkaido chiffon cupcake so much that they asked me to bake it again. As I have a few boxes of fresh blueberries in my fridge, hence the decision to modify my earlier recipe to make this Blueberry Hokkaido Chiffon cupcakes and Blueberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It is so scrumptious that I had 3 servings at one go! My kids couldn't stop eating at one too! 

两天前,家里的小朋友吵着我再做这款蛋糕,刚好冰箱里有几盒新鲜蓝莓,就尝试做蓝莓口味的。也做了蓝莓瑞士奶油霜来搭配,真的是太好吃了!我一口气吃下了三个呢!

I love Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes and have baked it many times and even tried it in pumpkin flavour which you can find the recipe here. This is my second time using cooked dough method* and I simply love the result of a softer and delicate cake texture. It is my first time making Swiss Meringue buttercream and in Gula Melaka flavour. It is so fragrant and delicious that my little boy licked up everything that was left over on the whisk and bowl...lol! 

*Cooked dough meaning 烫面 in Chinese. The flour used in the chiffon cake recipe is cooked in warm oil before mixing with the meringue prior to baking as it will yield a softer and delicate cake texture. 

好喜欢吃北海道戚风杯子蛋糕,做过好几次包括南瓜口味的。(有兴趣可以按“”看食谱) 这是我第二次用烫面做法*来做这款人人爱的小蛋糕。质感比直接做法更柔软更细腻! 这是我第一次尝试做瑞士蛋白奶油霜而且是椰糖口味的,味道好香也特别好吃到家里的小朋友把搅拌器与钢盆剩下的奶油霜全部舔光光呢。。。呵呵!

Homemade Matcha Kit-Kat 自制抹茶巧克力Kit-Kat (中英食谱教程)

Yum

My kids and I really love eating Matcha kit kat. The love started when I bought a few cartons of this sweet treats back during my Japan trip 2 years ago. We are glad that it is available locally and buy it often to satisfy our cravings. Few days ago, my girl asked me if I could replicate this at home and I thought it would be fun to give it a try! So, here's sharing with you my copycat version, the first three steps are similar to making Matcha Nama Chocolate which I have shared earlier on (Click on the name or image below for the recipe) and the end result tastes amazingly close to the real Matcha kit-kat! 

家里的小孩和我都很喜欢吃宇治抹茶巧克力Kit Kat,前几天女儿问我是否能在家自制这款零食,我就尝试做了这山寨版的 ,做法的前三个步骤跟之前做的抹茶生巧克力相似。(可点击名称或以下的照片看食谱) 味道还蛮像真的宇治抹茶巧克力Kit Kat,好开心喔!
