It’s been a long time since I’ve baked a chiffon cake. Bought a new pack of cake flour just for chiffon cake baking so there’ll be lots more chiffon cake posts to come lol. Continue reading
I’m starting to feature more of my fridge as I’m getting lazier and lazier. Photo qualities are getting worse as I’m just using my phone camera to take a picture inside my fridge these days. But I just had an inspiration to copy this box text thing from some magazine so hopefully I will get inspired to stop the photo qualities from deteriorating further. Continue reading
While I was on exchange in London, I took a free copy of the Tesco magazines and spotted a recipe for black velvet cupcakes. It was my first time hearing about black velvet and so I marked the recipe down to try when I return back to Singapore. So this week, I finally went about making black velvet cupcake. For some reason, I planned to use this BBC Good Food recipe instead of the Tesco recipe and for some reason, I forgot to buy baking powder so I ended up googling at the last minute for a recipe that doesn’t need baking powder. Luckily, the first google result is a recipe that doesn’t require baking powder! Yay!
I have some left over swiss meringue buttercream from making chocolate cupcakes but because the cream was not suitable for piping, I decided to make a cake and just spread the cream on top. I always think that strawberry and raspberry should go with chocolate so I googled for a chocolate cake recipe and chanced upon Joy of Baking’s simple chocolate cake recipe.
I wanted to make some raspberry swiss meringue buttercream (because it sounds so delicious) but the price of raspberries is so high in Singapore! As I’m typing this, I’m in London and raspberries way cheaper here (and I’m eating tons of them everyday teehee). Anyway, I bought some strawberries instead and made strawberry swiss meringue buttercream instead!
My first memory of a yogurt was yoplait yogurt, those six small tubs that can be torn off from this bigger rectangular piece of plastic board. But I didn’t know that was yogurt. I was around 5 and had no idea what yogurt was. We just pop the six tubs into the freezer and ate them frozen LOL. Then slowly I started to eat normal fruit flavour yogurt but I disliked them. Then my mother started eating plain yogurt and I hated it because it was so sour. Then when I turned older, I started to like those plain yogurt, especially those greek style yogurt and disliked those flavoured ones haha. I came across a recipe for an Italian yogurt cake and since it sounds fun to try, I decided to make one. Continue reading
