[Photo Friday] Fruit Melody: Berries and Kiwifruits

[Fruit Melody] Berries and Kiwifruits
When comes to purchase daily fruits for my family sometime I would be rather selective with the available choices. And because in Singapore most of our fresh fruits are imported from overseas country like Australia, USA, China and etc so the price will be slightly higher too. For example a box of cherry (250g) might cost up to S$10++ depending on it's country of origin and this applies to berries as well.

In fact for berries lovers like us, it can easily cost us SG$20++ just to get 4 boxes of assorted berries (blackberry, blueberry, strawberry or cherry) for our 2 days supply. But I guess for the sake of the multiple nutrition values and health benefits some money are meant to be spent in a away. In this post, I would like to share some information of our favourite berries and kiwifruits which are in season now.

Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins

I always wanted to try making this type of streusel muffins which I often come across in cafes like Starbucks, Paris Baguette and etc which cost around SG$4 each. And what attracts me most is that top layer of golden crispy buttery streusel topping which contrast well with the soft and moist exterior of the cake.

Moreover homemade muffins actually does not require much effort and time if you have all the ingredients ready in your pantry as what you have to do is just stir, mix and bake. So why not join us to bake a tray of this Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins for afternoon tea or breakfast which I bet you will love it just as much as we do.


BLUEBERRY LEMON STREUSEL MUFFINS


For this recipe is quite similar to the previous one that I did for the Chocolate Chip Muffins but instead I replace about half of the plain flour with organic wholemeal flour for a healthier version (if you could replace with all wholemeal flour will be better). On top of that if you prefer a stronger lemon fragrant, you can also add in 1 whole lemon zest instead of ½ into the cake batter.

Festive Brunch Menu Using Perfect Italiano Cheese

Christmas is just another three weeks down the road and I am sure most of you are busy with the Christmas menu planning. Here with some complimentary cheese that we received from Perfect Italiano, we decided to whip up some dishes from their “Food Fixes in 15 Seconds” festive menu which features tasty and simple dishes that you can learn in just 15 seconds.

Using the cheese we prepared a 5 Course Brunch Menu shown above with Cheesy Corn Chowder, Parmesan Toast, Cheese Baked Christmas Casserole, Sausage And Mushroom Baked Rice plus Parmesan Pancakes for dessert.

Recently Perfect Italiano has launched a new cheese flavour known as Perfect Bakes which is a full-flavoured Cheddar blend with a little Mozzarella for stretch and Parmesan for bite. And the combination of these three cheese blend well to give a superior flavour which is perfect for some Italian inspired bake dishes such as pasta, vegetables or lasagne which you can impress your loved ones and guests during this coming festive season

Blueberry And Lavender Butter Cake

A lovely slice of butter cake always makes great company for afternoon tea with friends or loved one. And at time when berries are in season I will also add in a handful of it together with some lemon zest to enhance the flavour too. Or when I am run off of berries then either Matcha or Cocoa Powder will be another great alternative to make different flavour of butter cake depending on what we are craving for.

Lemon Pound Cake With Lemon Glaze

Meeting out with bestie who shares the same interest always spark-up new inspirations during our conversation. As I have being craving for some good lemon pound cake for tea, my dear friend Sherie without hesitate shares her "pound cake" tips with me so that I could make one.

Like she said, pound cake ingredients are quite standardize with the same amount of flour, sugar and butter used. And for a healthier choice, it is also alright to reduce the amount of sugar slighter; perhaps by 1/4.

Blueberry Vs Raspberry Compote


Although in Singapore we do not have our own seasonal fruits like berries, stone fruits and etc. But we can easily get fresh seasonal fruits from the supermarkets and every year during summer which is the best time to buy "cheap" berries such as "Blueberry" and "Cherries" that are imported from overseas. So during this season, grab more "berries" and freeze it for later use in your bakes or dishes.

Magic Of BOSCH MCM4100 Food Processor - Part II, Baked Mini Lemon Cheesecake


This is a super "over due" recipe which I found in my "draft" a few days back while sorting out some my posts. I guess it has being almost 6 months since the other related Part I post had being published. So please accept my sincere apologies if you are waiting for this recipe.

I love cheesecake especially those that are baked rather than the non-bake type. And out of all the different types of cheesecake, New York and Boston Cheesecakes are two of my favourite because I love its thick and creamy cheesy flavour.

Blueberry Lemon Butter Cake


Nothing beats a slice of fragrant Butter Cake which is infused with lemon aroma together with bits of bursting blueberries in your mouth. To be honest, among all the different types of tea-cake, I simply adore butter cake especially those that are lightly infused with lemon fragrant.

If you still remember, a few months back I have shared two recipes on these "Lemon Yoghurt Butter Cake" and  "Chocolate Yoghurt Butter Cake" which is a hit for our family and friends. We love both version of the cake despite of either plain or chocolate.

Fruit And Muesli Muffins

Before this post, I have only seen and read "Muesli" in supermarkets and recipe books. It is only until I try out these wonderful "cereal" from VOGEL's which consists of uncooked rolled oats, real dried fruits and nuts that I totally fell in love with them. In fact I have replace my usual breakfast cornflakes to these yummy muesli for my milk, cooked oats, yoghurt and bakes.

Here I am sharing a 3 Steps:- Stir, Mix and Bake wholesome Fruit And Muesli Muffins recipe which you could bake anytime of the day and keep the extra in the freezer for up to 3 months. But if you love fruits and nuts, I promise these muffins would gone even without you notice them.

These Muesli are made mainly using ingredients such as grains, fruits, nuts and seeds from New Zealand which are free from artificial flavours or colours. VOGEL's mueslis combine the natural, less processed ingredients with those that pack essential healthy boosting components such as antioxidants, fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.
