Raspberry Swirls Lemon Cheesecake

This is my basic bake cheesecake recipe that I always use whenever I want to whip up a cheesecake for my family. The ingredients list does not include flour, sour cream or heavy cream but instead natural Greek yogurt is used. This recipe allows me to bake a cheesecake with no crack on the surface.

Home Made Butter Croissants (Maiden Attempt)

I have always wanted to try making home made croissants. It always reminded me of the laminated dough (puff pastry dough) my sis made in her secondary school food and nutrition class. She brought it home and it baked into layers of light and crispy pastry

Dark Chocolate Matcha Cake

Homemade Dark Chocolate Matcha cake + Great Reads = Great Time 
Matcha (green tea) and dark chocolate are two of my favourite things. In this post, these ingredients are combined to create a cake for Mother's Day! I have made a seriously dark chocolate cake last year and it was very well received by my family and friends. 

The matcha (green tea) sponge was very light, without being overly sweet and the lightly sweetened matcha whipped cream further enhanced the matcha flavour. The chocolate ganache layer gave a contrasting rich, dense (in a good way) texture and flavour.

Homemade Crepes Recipe

Crepes is a close cousin to pancakes. The omission of leavening agents in crepes recipe results in a thin, chewy texture as compared to a light and fluffy texture of pancakes.  Crepes are made with very simple ingredients, flour, eggs, milk and butter. And the batter can be made simply in a bowl with a hand whisk. With the aid of a hand held emission blender, my batter was completed in less than 10 minutes.
