Blueberry Whipping Cream Pound Cake蓝梅鲜奶油磅蛋糕(中英食谱教程)

When I saw this Whipping Cream Pound Cake recipe at Fion's blog, I immediately bookmarked it. I had an opened pack of whipping cream, about a quarter left after making our family's favourite Homemade Matcha Ice-Cream. As whipping cream has to be used up within 3 days after opening, this recipe comes in really handy. I baked a blueberry pound cake using the left over whipping cream and really love the smooth and moist texture of the cake! After uploading this post, I will be off to the airport with my family for our vacation in Down Under, will be back blogging again in two weeks time!

French Almond Cake 法式杏仁蛋糕(中英食谱教程)(中英食谱教程)

Last Saturday, I baked this French Almond cake as a present for a good friend son's birthday. I have chosen this non-cream cake knowing that her 5 year-old does not fancy cakes with cream. I started with the intention to bake one 8 inch cake which this recipe calls for. It turned out to be quite a short cake as it didn't rise much during baking. Looking at the nicely baked but flat cake, I deem it not presentable to give away as gift. I quickly measured out the ingredients from the same recipe and baked it in a 6 inch round pan. The second bake gave a better height and together with the first bake, I turned it into a 2 tier cake which I am rather pleased with.

Cookie Cutter Recipe 造型压模饼干(中英食谱教程)

Yesterday was the last day of school term for my little boy. When he came home, he was kind of sad as he would not be going back to the holding school where the Primary 1 and 2 students are attending this year due to the school construction of an indoor sports hall and classroom blocks at the main school campus. I know he would miss the Chess corner most as that's where he and his good friends would play chess (moving giant Chess pieces which are slightly shorter than the children but light weight) every morning before lessons starts.

Quick & Easy Plain Brownies 简易巧克力布朗尼 (中英食谱教程)

Few weeks ago, when I attended my Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) lunch gathering, my group leader Sharon brought a batch of brownies baked by her 12 year-old daughter. After I tried it, I fell in love with this plain old brownie and requested for the recipe. Sharon is kind to share this recipe which her daughter has gotten when she was in kindergarten. It is her girl's favourite brownie recipe and she often bakes it for occasions and give away as gifts.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies 花生酱巧克力豆饼干 (中英食谱教程)

When Amy of CHOCOLATE-CHIP-SISTERS.COM approached me few days ago to try out their range of premium chocolates in my bakes, I was more than happy to do so. Being a dark chocolate lover, I must have my daily dose of dark chocolate as it keeps me happy and healthy. Besides that, the Malagos Chocolates which I have received are 100% pure and natural, NO gluten, Non-GMO, No preservatives or artificial colouring, No dairy and No nuts. It is also of single-origin made from ethically grown and processed beans that have been carefully graded (according to international standards), fermented and solar-dried. That gives it a distinct flavour as is expected of chocolates that come from a single kind which makes any bake or drink stands out.
