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 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!
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.

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!

Bake this soft and fluffy all natural camouflage loaf to cheer my little one up as he has been suffering from frequent nose bleeding due to block nose caused by the haze. Wishing the haze to go away soon as I miss the sun, blue sky and fresh air!!!

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! These cookies used egg white only so if you have leftover egg whites from previous bakes, this will be a good recipe to consume it. :)
