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

Vanilla Bean Cutout Cookies 雲尼拿印模曲奇

This is a very simple cookie recipe especially if you own a stand mixer. You could use cold ingredients taken right out of the fridge. If you don’t have a stand mixer, the dough could be prepared easily by cutting the fats (the cold butter cubes) into the flour mixture with a knife or simply … Continue reading Vanilla Bean Cutout Cookies 雲尼拿印模曲奇

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

I made this no-bake cheesecake for my sister and my friend’s daughter recently. Unlike my other No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake recipe which is made with fresh strawberries puree, I first turned my fresh strawberries into a coulis before blending it with cream cheese. I even used the same coulis to make a glaze. The result? A … Continue reading No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake with Strawberry Glaze 士多啤梨芝士凍餅配士多啤梨鏡面

Dark Brown Sugar Nougat with Almonds and Dried Longan 黑糖桂圓杏仁牛軋糖

Here comes another nougat recipe! I was hoping to make nougat with dark brown sugar and dried longan during Chinese New Year and it took me three trials to finalize my recipe. I already have a pretty solid base nougat recipe (sort of) so each time I wanna create another flavor, I just change the … Continue reading Dark Brown Sugar Nougat with Almonds and Dried Longan 黑糖桂圓杏仁牛軋糖

Espresso Cutout Cookies 特濃咖啡印模曲奇

Here is a cutout cookie recipe that I made for my friends during Christmas time. Unlike my Sugar Cutout Cookies, Matcha Cutout Cookies and Chocolate Cutout Cookies that are crispy and crunchy, these espresso-flavoured cookies are actually very tender. 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

Matcha Nougat with Almonds and Cranberries 抹茶杏仁蔓越莓牛軋糖

This is one of the nougat flavors I made for my relatives and friends during Chinese New Year. The Matcha Nougat recipe I shared last year was a sugar-free version (read about my blog post, Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds). This time I made them with regular light corn syrup, demerara sugar with almonds and … Continue reading Matcha Nougat with Almonds and Cranberries 抹茶杏仁蔓越莓牛軋糖
