50% Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread

 

Sourdough bread baking have become a weekly routine ever since I started my naturally leaven bread journey a year ago. I will try to bake at least 2 loaves of the bread weekly for my family and every bake is a learning experience.

Fresh Figs with Thyme Infused Honey

I like fresh figs. I like how the simple, beautiful shades of purple on the outside contrast with the complex white and pinkish structure on the inside. Fresh fig is very subtle in flavour and I like the combination of the slightly sweet, soft flesh against the crunchy, seedy and sticky interior.

Matcha Pound Cake


 


I like pound cake. It is a 'keep it simple' cake. Baking with simple ingredients, such as fresh eggs, good butter and vanilla, will reward you with a fragrant loaf of goodness.

Pooh Bear Cheese Tart


Piglet: "How do you spell love?"
Pooh: "You don't spell it - you feel it."

Cheese tarts that will melt your heart. It did for me. Too cute to be eaten.

Cup-a-do-da-doo! Candied Orange Mini Rooster Cupcakes



This was my girl's last baking project with me before her school reopens for a new academic year. As the lunar new year fast approaches, this is the year of the rooster, she caught sight of cakes and cookies that were decorated with the rooster motif and requested to make some mini cupcakes and decorate it with simple ingredients to welcome the year of the Rooster.

Homemade Sourdough Raisin Brioche




Christmas is 8 sleeps away! I was trying to make a Christmas bread using sourdough levain and this was how this recipe came about. But I was hesitant to go all out, as it required me to use different kinds of dried fruits and candied citrus which I am not willing to forgo if the bake did not turn out right. After all, it is my first try in making a panettone.
