Basic White Bread Pain de Mie 頂角白吐司

During the COVID-19 outbreak we are asked to stay home as much as possible and go out only when needed in order to curb the spread of the virus.

Opera Cake 歌劇院蛋糕

This is what I made for my dad’s birthday in December (yes I know it’s already end of March now). There is actually nothing new about this cake but a combination of different things I’ve made before. Apart from a cake layer, the almond sponge cake could also be used as a cake wrapper. For … Continue reading Opera Cake 歌劇院蛋糕

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake with Strawberry Glaze 士多啤梨芝士凍餅配士多啤梨鏡面

All these recipes have pretty much the same ratios in terms of flour, sugar, fats and … Continue reading Espresso Cutout Cookies 特濃咖啡印模曲奇

Double Chocolate Chiffon Cake 雙重朱古力戚風蛋糕

I am running low on my favorite Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder so I have to use it sparingly until I travel to the States next time (ya so sad that it is no longer available in Canada). I want a cake that doesn’t depend on too much cocoa powder but is still full of chocolaty … Continue reading Double Chocolate Chiffon Cake 雙重朱古力戚風蛋糕
