A cake that’s perfect for just about any occasion. Including a solitary afternoon coffee break. Flourless Chocolate Pecan Cake 60g unsalted…

I think the Unicorn craze is still ongoing and I think I managed to attempt it while still on trend! Of course what started the Unicorn craze or at least added fuel to the fire was Starbuck’s Unicorn Frappuccino. Not available in Korea, not that I would have it if it was anyway. After the…

So, the thing about mochi (or rice cake) is that in Korea – and as far as I know, in Japan as well – it’s often accompanied by red bean paste which looks suspiciously like chocolate. When we first came to Korea we mistakenly thought it was chocolate quite often and eventually realised that any…

One of the first things I ever baked was banana muffins. I remember it pretty clearly – we made them first in grade 8 home economics, and could take the recipes for everything we made home. I decided to make a healthier version (in those days, that meant low fat) so I would adjust the…

I’ve never had a store-bought or bakery bagel that’s been as good as a homemade bagel… …ever. And believe me, I’ve sampled a few bagels in my life. I’ve walked the earth… “You know, like Caine in “KUNG FU.” Just walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures.”… and eat bagels. But I’ve…

Red velvet cake always catches our attention. Apart from its vibrant red colour, we love its rich and chocolaty flavour. It’s even a greater visual treat if you create some marbling effect by alternating the red and white cake batter. I love the little surprise when I could see how the marbling turns out after…

These muffins are no exception with added, chunky pieces of chocolate. 🙂 Ingredients 115 grams butter 1/2 cup castor sugar 2 large eggs (I used size…

This recipe is slightly different from the usual cupcake recipe. I use a reverse mixing method instead of creaming the butter and sugar first, adding eggs, follow by wet and dry ingredients. I prefer mixing all my dry ingredients in my stand mixer first follow by adding room temperature butter into the dry ingredients. After…
