Super Moist Almond Butter Cake 超湿润杏仁奶油蛋糕(中英食谱)

Yum

Do you love butter cakes? I don't quite always like it, but somehow I just can't resist this almond butter cake which is so fragrant and really moist in texture with the addition of almond meal. (finely grounded almond) It is so delicious that I went for a second and THIRD helping...rather unusual for one who is not a fan of butter cake! Do give this cake a try as it will not disappoint you and be sure to use premium butter for a superior taste! 

喜欢吃奶油蛋糕吗?老实说我并不太喜欢,但这次做的杏仁奶油蛋糕却令我无法抗拒!可能加了杏仁粉,烤出来不仅香,质感也很湿润。我吃了一片,忍不住又再拿了一片,一口气吃了三片蛋糕喔!这蛋糕食谱值得一试,决对不会让您失望的。还有记得一定要用优质的牛油,做出来的成品才会更美味哦!

I have a pomelo sitting on my kitchen counter top since Chinese New Year. So, when my hubby bought some Thai honey bee mangoes last weekend, I quickly used both fruits to make one of my favourite dessert - Mango Sago Pomelo. It is a popular Hong Kong dessert which can be made easily at home. Just follow the simple steps below and you can enjoy it in no time. It is so delicious and refreshing that one bowl is simply not enough! ;p

Easy Blueberry Honey Cupcakes 简易蓝莓蜂蜜小蛋糕(中英食谱)

Yum

This week is our local school break, I am usually busier with the kids around and I can't try recipes which take up too much time. I saw this simple honey cupcake recipe while browsing through a Chinese recipe book by 君之 and decided to give it a try with my 7-year-old boy. It's been a while since he bakes together with mummy, our last bake bonding session was when we baked the Number cookies using the Tovolo number cookie cutters last November. This recipe is rather easy, he could do almost all the steps except the whisking of the eggs using the electric mixer which I gave him a hand. We have also added blueberries to the batter for a fruity taste. He was really happy and proud to bake these delicious and soft honey cupcakes.

Baking Taitai's Endorsment of Blue Jacket Flour in Singapore 烘焙太太代言新加坡售卖的优质台湾水手牌面粉

Yum



I was approached by Marie from Taiwan two months ago to try out the premium Blue Jacket Flour in my baking. As I had zero knowledge of this Taiwanese brand, I asked Marie what is so special and unique about this flour before trying it. I learnt that the Blue Jacket flour is made from top milling grades of hard red spring wheat (CWRS) from Canada, and its water absorption rate and stability are superior than many other brands in the market. In terms of quality, it is comparable with Japanese flour but at a more competitive price. 

So far, I have tried the Blue Jacket patent and cake flour in the following blog recipes (you can click on the images to see the recipe) and am happy that it always gives such favourable results and the bake has a more refine texture too. Also, cakes baked using the Blue Jacket cake flour are able to retain the moisture even after refrigerated.

Homemade Leopard Print Tokyo Banana- 自制豹纹东京香蕉蛋糕(中英食谱)

Yum




The first time I heard of Tokyo Banana was before I went for my vacation in Osaka in 2013, my nephew Darren had asked me to buy it if I see it in Osaka. Unfortunately, I could not find it in Osaka, not even at the Kansai International Airport.

Tokyo Banana (東京ばな奈) is a Japanese souvenir sweet of Tokyo, a banana shaped sweet full of banana custard wrapped in a fluffy sponge. It is considered a top souvenir and must buy when one visits Tokyo. 


I happened to see a homemade version of the Tokyo banana at a chinese blog recently and decided to give it a try. Please pardon my not so nice drawing of the leopard print on my first attempt. Nonetheless, the taste is good and not too sweet like the original version. The kids love it and we finished the 9 pieces all in one go!

The week did not start well for me, I woke up with a viral fever on Monday morning with weak limbs and achy body, I felt lousy as all I could do was sleep and sleep and sleep almost the whole day for the past few days! How miserable!!! Felt better this morning and decided to bake my family's favourite banana cake but in cupcake form. We simply love the ultra soft and fluffy texture! Chill it in the fridge and it is so moist and fluffy, taste even better! Those who have tried it love it just as much as we do and I hope you like it too!
