Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake (柠檬优格磅蛋糕)

I always get mesmerize by those classic lemony pound cake (with a thick layer of white icing) sold in the cafes. To be frank I have weakness on food made from lemon like pound cake, shortbread, lemon curd, lemon bar and honey lemon drink. In this post I am sharing one of my favourite lemon bake which is well-received by family and friends; Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake. This fusion of old fashioned tea cake is made with Greek yogurt then soak with lemon sugar mixture to make it extra moist and lemony!

Mixed Berry Magic Cake - 莓子香草魔法蛋糕

Magic Cake (also known as 魔法蛋糕 or Magic Custard Cake) is where one cake batter magically turns into 3 distinct layers after being baked in the oven. And it feels so amazing when you see a fluffy sponge layer on top, wobble custard layer in the middle and a dense cake layer on the bottom while cutting the cake.

[recipe] Coconut Banana Bread - 椰子香蕉面包

Today we will be having banana bread that is made with ripe bananas that are sweet and fragrant together with coconut oil and fresh shredded coconut that add in strong coconut flavour without overpowering the taste of the bananas. We love the moist and soft interior of the cake with a slight crisp top that is covered with lightly burnt shredded coconut that adds extra bits for a perfect breakfast or tea choice.

Cakes + Coffee + New Friend @ One Man Coffee

[One Man Coffee] Flat White And Cappuccino
Depending on your purpose of visiting a cafe where some might just like to get a cup of coffee and enjoy quiet moment with 1 - 2 chapters from the book or flipping through your favourite magazine with sips of warm coffee. Whereas some might just fall for either cakes or pastry together with a cup of beverage to spend the afternoon.

Last week, I managed to met up with a new friend who always patronize One Man Coffee which is located at 215R Upper Thomson Road. This cafe might not be easy to find although it is near the main road because the actually co-share the premises with Crust (sells Pizza in the evening) so you might tends to miss out the signboard.

Banana Coconut Bread using Coconut Flour

I always love things to be simple when it comes to food preparation for the family. So whenever the recipe calls for "one pot dish" or "one pot cake" I would be most delighted to try it out because I get to wash lesser utensils as well as time spent in the kitchen. So here I have a quick recipe which only requires stir and mix after which you could sit back and relax while waiting for the cake to be out from the oven.

This quick Banana Coconut Bread has a lovely moist texture plus coconut scent from coconut flour used and I also love the extract dose of walnuts which gives the bread an extra crunch and nutty flavour.

[With Recipes] 2014 Chinese New Year Lunch Gathering With Relatives

This is the second year we invited our relatives over for Chinese New Year lunch gathering where everyone can mingles around as well as enjoy some homecook dishes and cakes prepared by my mum and myself. As usual we have a big group of relatives and to prepare a semi buffet for 30 people in a home base kitchen with gas stove and a microwave convection oven (my built-in oven was down) was rather a bit challenging for us. But thanks god we managed to get all the food up on time and everyone enjoys the array of food and family bonding time too.

So here is a long-winded post with photos of the food as well as related recipes (or recipe links) for your reference in case you need some inspiration on what to cook before the 15 days of lunar new year ends on Friday, 14 Feb 2014 (ooooo it's also Valentine's Day too)

And with their range of sweet and savoury treats you can pick your all-time favourite log cakes in any shapes and sizes from either standard design to Santa’s or Winter Wonderland Santa’s Cottage that made from chocolate or vanilla sponge.

Orange Chocolate Pound Cake Loaded With Dark Chocolate Chips

I am sure for those who love pound cake there are always one or two safe-keep recipes on hand which you can mix and match for different flavour. For me, Lemon Pound Cake has being my all-time favourite whenever it comes to tea cake but for the post I will be sharing a recipe on Orange Chocolate Pound Cake which is loaded with mini dark chocolate chips.


I made these mini loaves as gifts for friends who love both orange and chocolate flavoured cakes during a Tea Party last week. This orange infused cake is soft, moist and fluffy plus it is loaded with generous amount of mini dark chocolate chips inside out. Although most pound cake recipes called for equal amount of butter, sugar and flour in “1 : 1 : 1” ration but for this recipe I reduce the sugar used to 180g instead of 200g due to the chocolate chips which adds sweetness to the cake too.

[Recipe] Gula Melaka Banana Cake With Walnuts

Our family loves "banana" cake except me. But about two weeks ago, when I saw Maryann (@tubbykat) Gula Melaka Banana Bread's photo on Instagram (here) I know immediately I am sold for this combination because of my favourite "Gula Melaka" which is one of the key ingredients for this recipe. With that added it definitely enhance the taste and aroma of the cake which makes them similar smells rather like caramel popcorn.
