After looking at the yummy delicious Tiramisu from Tested and Tasted , I decided to bake one. This cake is not for myself but for a group of 'uncles from SxxT' who have been helping me in some of my work. This cake looks on the plain side but hope the taste is alright. Hope 'uncles' like it and really appreciate their help.

Peach Swiss Roll

My swissroll turn out skinless, all due to my poor rolling technique. Should I wait for the sponge to cool totally before rolling or to roll while its still hot???? I made 2 different sponge. One is using vanilla while the other is using pandan. I prefer the former and find pandan combination is weird but I like the pattern done on it.

Home version Pop corn

Borrowed 2 machines from my sister about 2 weeks ago. Didn't know she got such gadget at home. A Pop corn machine and an ice cream machine. The rascals have so much fun when I used it for the pop corn. Home made pop corn. I pour some honey over it but still prefer the commercial version. Not sure if it got to do with the packet of corn??? I did not get those meant for pop corn use. Any different????

My next on the list to do will be ice cream :P

Green Tea Chiffon Cake

I used the green tea powder bought from JB....find the green and taste are not strong enough. Unlike the previous attempt on another recipe, which can still see a slight dull green colour. This recipe only asked for 6gm so not sure if it has got to do with amount that call for it. Anyway I like this recipe as the result of the bake is not so sweet. This recipe yield only 2 Daiso size chiffon pan. Alternatively, can use a 6' chiffon pan. Recipe from 戚风+海绵 轻蛋糕77种. Btw my chiffon is still skinless.

Oatmeal Bread

I used the premix oatmeal bread to do this. Find the dough difficult to handle. More suitable for loaf bread then individual bun.


This is also under my to do list after I saw my sister doing it last week. I replaced the filling with minced pork, cabbage, carrot, mushroom, Chinese vermicelli & cloud ears or more commonly known as black fungus. This is the only way I can get them to eat vegetables.

Panda Bread & Stuff crust pizza

This is under my to do list after I saw bake a story posting. The original recipe is from Taro Taro and a blogger Florence was kind enough to translate it. I was attracted by the cuteness of the bread...PANDA. Instead of using my KA to mix the dough, my niece 33 thought me the manual method. Lots of throwing involved and at the end of the day my arm was aching. Maybe I'm too greedy cos I did a pizza follow by this panda bread. Not sure if I will use the manual method again....hubby commented that 厉害就好,不要假历害 :(

Orea Cream Cake & Hazel nut Cream cake

Orea Cream Cake
Hazel Nut Cream cake

L came over to my place last night to bake cake. We settle for something easy to whip up. Surprisingly, we baked these 2 cakes within 4 hours. Hope she enjoy the fun of baking and of course the cake.

Charcoal Cointreau, Pandan & Milo Mooncake

I still have some lotus paste in the fridge and since I have the charcoal powder I thought why not use it on the mooncake. So I simply scoop a tsp of the Charcoal powder + 3 tsp of cointreau+ 2 tsp orange paste and make it into the pingpi dough. I'm afraid it may be too dark to be seen haha..... but the taste is still not bad.....anyway wishing all bloggers 中秋节快乐!

Guess what I supposed to make this for my mil but she have already bought they are left in the fridge..think have to give away to my neighbour then.
