Mommy's Birthday Cake

Made this cake for Mom on her birthday..

This is the first time I make a cake for my mommy.. I wasn't confident with frosting the cake and decorating them, lack of the creative juice in me.. Hehe..

So being her 50th Birthday this year, I raised up my hands and "volunteer" to bake her a cakie, nothing fanciful just a simple blackforest cake but frosted in chocolate ganache.

My mum was really happy when she saw the cake. Actually there's no element of surprise in here, my mom saw me busying frosting the cake and decorating it, so there is no "WOW-reaction" in her face.. All I could see was her beaming away.. Maybe she's proud of me? (I guess so too!)

Sharing with you the pictures:

Did wrote some short messages on the cake board using white chocolate.. But this picture was taken by my sister before writting.. Or rather when I was melting the chocolate, she took this picture.. Haha..

What I wrote was "Happy birthday, Mommy" (In chinese) and drew a big heart shape beside the text! Hehe! (shows that I love my mommY!)

This is exactly the same cake as B's Bday cake, only difference is that I uses chocolate ganache (1/3 milk chocolate, 2/3 dark chocolate) to frost the cake. My family don't really adore creams..

Well, anyway, that day she was really happy, maybe its because all the family members + all the boyfriends was there to celeb with her.. And I believe my cake did make some contribution to her happiness as well! Hehe!

I wouldn't mind all the trouble, as long as my mommy is happy!

Apple Crumble Pie

I made these Apple Crumble Pie on friday night! Finished my marketing paper at the evening, and prepared the dough and crumble filling at night..

If I were to make any tart desserts, I like to prepare my tart shells the day before, store it in the freezer and use them the next day.. I'm really really extremely slow in moulding the tart dough into the aluminum cups.. So I usually start the day before, if not I think just by doing this apple crumble pie might took me 5 hours! (Yah, thats how slow I'm)

As compared to the first time making of tarts, I think I fare better this time round.. I took the advice from Aunty Yochana in avoiding over-handling of dough.. A "just-right" dough should not be oily to touch, and my dough falls under that category! So I'm happy! =)

I always make my tarts in aluminium cups, and I really have the hardest time ever trying to mould the dough in.. Cos I'm afraid that I might distort the shape of the aluminum cups.. (that explains why I work like an old lady) =P

The dough yields lots of tart shells (or maybe I mould them too thin), and it is quite crumbly after baking, so when my family and friends who tired it commented that its hard to hold up the pie..

It might be that I added in too much egg (an accident). Next time round I'll cut down on the butter and egg to yield a crispier shell, or simply I just stick with the Egg Tart shells.. I love them!

The box full of tarts for my friends..

I adapted the recipe from KC, posted by Yangone.

Apple Crumble Pie


(A) Crust
125g butter
225g plain flour
1/2 beaten egg

4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 tbsp brown sugar
sprinkles of cinnamon powder
lemon juice from a slice of lemon
some water
1/2 tbsp corn flour

70g butter
1 cup self-raising flour
3 tbsp sugar


  1. Make filling first by cooking the apples with the rest of the ingredients with some water. Add cornflour to thicken.
  2. Make the crust by combining the butter, flour and egg to form into a dough. Press dough on to a pie pan. Bake at preheated oven of 180C for about 8mins (or till the base is dry).
  3. For the crumble, gently rub the butter and flour to form into crumbs and add sugar and mix well.
  4. After crust is baked, pour in the apple filling and sprinkle top with the crumble. Bake at 200C for about 30 - 45 mins (i think) or till crust is nicely browned.

1 small problem would be that using 4 apples is seriously not enough.. I'm only able to add 1 tablespoon of filling into each tart whereas there's still room for another 1.5 tbsp.. Next time I shall up-up the apples to 6! ( I like my tarts to be bursting with fillings!)

Families and friends gave raving reviews for this pie! And I'm really happy! Brought 11 to school for friends to eat during the group study.. and I went home with the empty box! I'm really so happy that my bakes are appreciated and loved by all

Made a mental note to self, to make this for my maternal grandma family and B's family.

Good things are meant to be shared, right?

Woppes, still have 6 tart shells left, which means, more tarts rolling in!!!

B's granny Chocolate-O-Durian mousse cake

Hey people.. I backed to share with you guys a cake I bake 1 yr ago.. (I didn't have a blog back then).

Baked this cake for B's grandma.. It's her 70yr old birthday.. To the chinese, its considered as quite a big event.. I mean I feel quite embarress to bring out or present this cake.. I mean.. look at the decoration.. So...

The above is the actual cake for B's grandma and it weights about 1.5kg - 2kg.. I know look wises is really ugly and not good enough as bday cake.. *Slap self hard hard*

It was my really really maiden attempt at using whip cream to decorate the cake.. Just simply add mix in pink colouring and green colouring..

Sigh, my piping is really CMI (cannot make it) *slap triple hard again*

I'm like that, if I were to bake a cake for a major event, I'll trial trial to make one for family consumption and to ask them for comments..the picture above is for family consumption..

The blackish thing in between the cake is actually a failed chocolate mousse.. Hehe.. But the durian mousse makes up for the bad ganache failure.. Durian mousse is smooth and bursting with durian flavor.. YUM!

Thank god the 2nd attempt of this cake is a much better attemp.. The chocolate mousse is much much more better, not runny and its smooth. I was so happy that day that I actually assembled the cake w/o much hiccups.. =)

I adopted the recipe from Aunty Yochana's blog.

Choco-O-Durian Mousse Cake


Durian sponge
4 Eggs
250g optima flour
1 tsp ovalette
70g water
1 tsp durian paste
drops of green colouring
70ml corn oil (to be added last)

  1. Beat the above ingredients together till thick and fluffy (approx 10mins).
  2. Fold in corn oil and pour into a 9" round tin.
  3. Bake at 175C for about 45mins or till cooked.
  4. Turn cake onto a wire rack and leave it to cool.

Chocolate Mousse
100g good quality chocolate, chopped and melted
200g whip cream, whipped till stiff
20g rum

  1. Whip cream till stiff, fold in melted chocolate and rum.

Durian Mousse
2 egg yolks
50g sugar
250g durian flesh
75ml milk
200g whipping cream, whipped
10g gelatin powder
3 tbsp water

  1. Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a bowl over simmering water until puffy, stir in durian flesh and cook for a while to warm it up.
  2. Soak gelatin powder with water and let it bloom. Microwave for a while until gelatin melts and add into durian flesh mixture. Stir till well combined.
  3. Add in milk and stir thoroughly.
  4. Gently fold in whipped cream making sure its mixed thoroughly.


  1. Spread chocolate mousse on top of a slice of cake, and them top up with the other layer of sponge cake.
  2. Pour the durian mousse onto the sponge and level it. Top the cake with the last piece of sponge. Chill cake till set.
  3. Cream the whole cake with cream and decorate as desired.

Note: I triple the whole recipe. The cake pan I bought is very big, so the first batch of cake batter I pour in just nice for a layer. Which means I bake the cake layer by layer for 3 times.

Comments were good! Those who tried my cake said that its very nice! And this made me so happy!

I myself find that the cake is very nice too! Maybe its because I'm a ultimate durian fan.. Hehe!

Do try this cake!

4 more papers to go.... before ending this sem...

Medical Microbiology
Introduction to Immunology
Molecular Genetics
Marketing for Life Sciences (II)
Protein Technology

Bioprocessing Technology

I'm so looking forward to the end of exams.. And till then I'll bake till drop! HEE! But not going to school means that I'll be lazier when it comes to preparing bento.. =(

Updates: Left with last paper to go.. Wish me luck for this killer module.. Cos I'm never "calculator savvy".. Duh, I hate maths all along!

Quiche... When I was 10!

I just realised something...

I made Quiche when I was in primary 4! And that's like when I'm 10 years old! Crazy or what?!

Yes.. I'm seriously not lying! Back then my sister bought this new oven, and I remember it clearly that day after school I reached home I've nothing to eat, so I just any-o-how add in things into aluminium cup, and bake it in the oven.. Seriously, I have no idea how on earth I know how to set the right temp of the oven etc.. (And I'm very sure I did not preheat the oven)

I can vaguely remember that I added in mushrooms, ham, cheese, spring onions, salt, pepper, eggs and milk in....

Why till now then I remember?

Cos recently read up alot on quiches.. Wanna try making them and pack them into bentos.. And after reading it for quite a few times, then it suddenly strikes me that "Hey, I've tried this before!"

Haha! Amazing right?

Steamed Chocolate Milk Custard

I really like those food that has silky smooth texture.. Like soy beancurd, steam eggs custard etc.. This can be justified by the recent posts that I've posted up.. Hehe..

Please pardon me for doing the same range of things over and over again.. I'm trying to explore with new type of food and flavours.. Hee =P

Today after dinner made myself a chocolate-y dessert.. I like this very muchie... Cos I like my chocolate to be slightly bitter.. I don't like sugary food as well and this is not overly sweet.. So it suits my tastebuds very well!

Steamed Chocolate Milk Custard


130mL chocolate milk
30mL water
1.5 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp honey
1 egg white

  1. Heat up water in a saucepan, and stir till cocoa powder and honey dissolves. Remove and set aside till cool.
  2. Add in the cooled chocolate mixture and egg white into the chocolate milk. Stir well to mix.
  3. Strain mixture into a bowl and steam over low heat for 12minutes.
  4. Serve warm or chilled

This dessert is a much healthier version of a chocolate pudding.. as it doesn't use cream and butter. And I only use egg whites, which greatly reduces the fat content of this dessert. And trust me, its really smooth.. Really enjoy eating this very much! I guess I will make this whenever the chocolate cravings kicks in!

Updates: I tried experimenting it using chocolate milk (minus the water), and it does make a difference to the texture, its more rough and less silky. In my point of view, it wasn't as nice as the orignal one.

Chocolate Ginger Milk Curd

Continue with the ginger milk curd fever, I made another today.. Chocolate flavor

If you were to ask me which one I prefer, I would definitely choose the Chocolate flavour one.

A simple test to test if the milk curd has set or not.. Apparently yes...

This is how the chocolate ginger milk curd looks like.. Texture wise is soft and even softer than beancurd.. But I like this kind of texture very much!

Chocolate and ginger sound weird and "disgusting" but trust me this is really good.. It taste like a softer version of chocolate pudding.

Once you put this into your mouth, you can immediately taste the rich chocolate taste, after which then you will taste the ginger taste.. Its sweet (from the chocolate milk) and hot (from the ginger) at the same time! New taste accquired!

Presenting to you the recipe:

Chocolate Ginger Milk Curd

120mL chocolate milk (I use HL brand)
1/2 tsp honey
2 tsp ginger juice (freshly squeezed)

  1. Place the ginger juice in a bowl.
  2. Heat milk and honey together till honey dissolves and the milk bubbles at the side.
  3. Remove pot from stove and stir it with a spoon for 20 times.
  4. Pour the milk into the cup containing ginger juice and give it a quick stir.
  5. Put aside and wait for the curds to form, approximately 2mins.
  6. Serve warm.

Do try it! Its good!

Brownie Muffin (with a twist)

Baked this brownie muffins after finish studying one of my module.. I wanted to take some rest and surf the net for a while, then suddenly craves for some chocolatey stuff.. So I bake these to stop the cravings.. Hehe!

On top of the original recipe, I add in some peanut butter and a piece of mint chocolate.

The interior view of the brownie muffin. The pale brownish stuff is the peanut butter, and some slightly shiny blacky stuff is the melted mint chocolate.

After making the brownie batter, I saw that there's a bottle of peanut butter on the tabletop so I thought, "why not add some in? I'm sure it will be yummy!" And so, I proceed on to add some PB in.. Quite a smart move.. As I really like this little surprise.. hehe!

And as for the mint chocolate, you can sub it with any chocolate you like, I used this because there only a few pcs left, and I thought of finishing it up..

Brownie Muffins

3 tbsp valhorna chocolate powder
100g sugar
87g brown sugar
100g plain flour
0.5tsp baking powder
0.25tsp salt
75ml oil
50ml evaporated milk
1 tbsp bailey's irish cream
2 eggs
100g chocolate chips (I use pcs of peppermint chocolate)
some peanut butter

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Sieve flour, chocolate powder and baking powder and salt together, and then stir in the sugars.
  3. Mix eggs, evaporated milk, oil and Bailey’s together, and pour them into the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir till no more visible lumps.
  5. Spoon 2 tsp of batter into prepared cases, then adds in a piece of chocolate, followed by 1 tsp of batter, top with some peanut butter and finally another 2 tsp batter.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Cool muffins thoroughly and store in air tight containers

I brought 8 of these to school for my classmates to try.. And reviews are good.. I guess its chocolate, so naturally will be a hit among the ppl who tried them!

Ginger Milk Curd

Ginger Milk Curd, also known as Jiang1 Zhi1 Zhuang4 Nai3. Its easy to make this if you get it right.. I have the most experience in this... (as in failures..)

If I did not remember it wrongly, I tried this for about 5 or 6 times, and each time I failed to get the curds, so I end up drinking ginger milk.. haha!

See the milk curds?

A clearer picture.. I know this looks like the steamed egg custard that I've just posted, but its not the same..

One require steaming the other no.. And FYI, I made this 2 on the same day (half an hour apart). So by the time I finish both, I'm really really fullll~

Recipe adapted from KC, posted by Florence.

Ginger Milk Curd


115mL milk
1 tsp sugar (Omitted)
2 tsp ginger juice
0.25tsp vinegar (Freshly squeezed)


  1. Put vinegar and ginger juice in bowl.
  2. Scald milk and sugar till sugar dissolves.
  3. Remove milk from heat and stir for 15 times (to bring the temp of milk down).
  4. Pour into (1) and leave till set, for a firmer texture, steam on low heat for 6minutes.
  5. Serve warm or chilled.

I omited the sugar and just boil the milk till the side bubbles..

Milk should not be boiled till 100C as the addition it into the ginger juice would denature the enzymes, and curdings will not occur.

The ginger taste/smell is not too strong, so no worries.. And this dessert really warms up the body, and its good for a chilly weather!

Steamed Eggs (a.k.a Tan Tan)

Tried making steamed eggs just now..

Surface of the steamed egg is not smooth as compared to florence's. I used medium fire instead of low fire..
The steamed eggs is very smooth and nice.. Taste abit like beancurd (Tao huey), only difference is that this has the egg and almond fragrance.

Recipe adapted from Kitchen capers, posted by Florence.

However I made some changes here and there to suit my tastebuds.

Steamed Egg

60mL water
0.5 tsp honey (recommand 1 tbsp instead)
115mL milk
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp almond powder

  1. Boil honey with water till honey dissolves.
  2. Stir in almond powder till dissolved.
  3. Add milk and eggs to the cooled mixture.
  4. Strain mixture into 2 cups (I pour into 1 cup), cover with foil and steam over low heat for 10minutes.
  5. Serve warm or chilled.

Alas.. I re-read the recipe, then I realised that I did not cover my cup with foil, which I guess it contributes to the "Rocky" surface of the custard and next time round I shall steam in 2 cups, so I can eat one cup warm, the other chilled.. Hehe

I don't like anything sweet, so I used only 0.5tsp of honey, and trust me.. Thats a bad move.. Should have up it to 1 tsp.. Really not sweet at all.. The additon of almond powder really enhances the taste of the steamed egg.. Very fragrant! Yumm.. Hehe! (Will make this again tml, but with variations of course!)

I made another milk dessert on the same day, and I ate both by myself.. So now I shall declare that my stomach is really overloaded.. With milk..

I shall post the other milk dessert in a seperate post.

Bento #4

Went back to school yesterday with classmates to mug for the upcoming exams.. So I woke up early in the morning (only 1 hour earlier) to prepare a bento for B..

I packed the bento using Lock n' Lock lunch box and a free lipton box.

Lunch today consist of gourmet blackpepper hotdog bun with cheese and egg, bacon potatoe salad, fried butterfly prawns (X3). In another seperated box, I added in watermelons (X2), slices of orange and strawberries (X3).

The strawberries are from korea, and it's really sweet.. My dad bought 2 punnet for $5. So it works out to be $2.50/punnet.

I think its quite cheap.. Consider to get 2 punnet for my bakes.. hehe!

Coming back to this bento, B really enjoyed the food! He asked me to double up the potatoe salad and the prawns! Heheh! And I'm really glad that he enjoyed the food I've prepared for him!

My favourite subject

Ello all..

Sharing with you what I did for my Secondary 4 O'levels Food and Nutrition exam..

Appetiser: Watercress and Peas soup
Main: Baked fish with herb butter
Side dish: Chicken Potatoe Patties
Dessert: Berry delicious yoghurt

I was given 2 hours to whip up all this.. It wasn't stressful at all, in fact, I enjoyed the whole process very much!

I still remember during my sec school days, my favourite subject is none other than Food and Nutrition! We get to cook once every 2 weeks.. Most of the time we cook..

Actually cooking is another passion of mine.. I love to cook.. Cook for my family and those peeps that I love..

So in this bloggie, apart from my bakes, I will post up my "cooks" (if there's any) and my bento.. Stay tuned!!

Christmas Logcake

Trying hard to clear off all of my "bakes" pictures by posting 3 post at a go..

Presenting to you my last year Yule logcake.. My maiden attempt at it..

Actually B requested me to bake somethings for his family's x'mas party.. Since its a X'mas party, I've in mind to bake a logcake..

I was really afraid that I'm not up to the standard yet, so I bake one "trial-trial" solely for my family's consumption. Something random: personally I like the cream cheese filling very much!

The "naked" yule log that survive the trial test.. But since its for family consumption, I did not add on any decorations.. (my family didn't mind either) =P

The above is the one that I brought over to B's family party.. A really simple decoration.. As it totally slips off my mind that I need to buy snow powder to dust the cake, so I used icing sugar.. But its a big NO-NO as I realised that it kind of like melt into the chocolate ganache..

The feedback from B's family were fairly good.. And that makes me a happy girl for the whole day!

Recipe adapted from Florence's blog.

5 egg yolks
25g castor sugar
Pinch of salt

Woah, longest recipe I ever typed.. Fingers aching.. haha! Personally I find that the difficulty I encounted then is that the chocolate roll wasn't soft enough.. And I strongly believe its my skill of folding in of egg white, back then I really couldn't fold whites well..

Bento #3

Another bento lunch prepared by yours truly.. And I really mean it that I cook these from scratch.. Considering that it's quite an achievement.. Hehe

My favourite strawberry shortcake box! (Cos it's big, can dump lots of things in it and its PINK!)

This bento filled with (L-R, clockwise): Blanched french beans with grilled capsicum, pan fry pumpkins, thai sweet chilli sauce, pieces of Otah skewer together, blanch baby corn, pan fried blackpepper salmon, and blanched broadbeans?

Gosh, suddenly just forgot the name of the bean.. But I assume it is alright cos A picture worths a thousand words, yeah?

I really enjoy the salmon very much! Cos I marinated it with lots of black and white pepper.. Fiery hot.. YUM!

Vanilla cupcakes

Hey hey.. I'm back in action again.. after MIA for weeks..hehe!

Of course I'm back in action with more things to share..

Zillion Months ago, I made my favourite vanilla cupcake again! My all time favourite..

A tried and tested recipe that never fails me.. I bake these cuppies and brought some for my project mates and share with them! And they were generous with the praises, which gave me extra boost of confidences in baking!

Presenting to you the recipe:

The recipe is a really simple one.. I simply adore easy bakes.. Minimise the washings.. Hur Hur Hur!

Hope you'll enjoy this simple cuppie!

Durian Chiffon Cake

Now I'm into the Chiffon craze.. Tho abit late.. Hehe..

I usually walk home (to and from school) instead of taking bus as I treat this as a form of exercise.. So on my way home today, I saw DURIANS! I've a reallly realllly soft spot for this thorny creamy fruit.. So almost immediately I stop and bought a box for $5, consider that as quite cheap as january is not the durian season..

I continue to think what can I do with this durian other than eating it down to my stomach.. So I thought of DURIAN CHIFFON!

I got the recipe from Aunty Yochana's bloggie.. I've it printed out and place it nicely into my file.. hehe!

See how tall this chiffon is..

I really like the golden brown colour on the surface of the cake.. Looks beautiful right? hehe

See the air-holes, and a whineey speck of egg whites.. Hehe.. Didn't fold it well..



6 egg yolks (use only 5)
150ml coconut milk (Replace with full cream evaporated milk)
4 tbsp corn oil (Use only 3tbsp)
Pinch of salt
150g durian puree
1/4 durian essence (omitted it)
50g caster sugar (use only 10g)
140g plain flour (use top flour)

6 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
100g caster sugar (use only 80g)

Methods (base on how I did it)

  1. Whisk egg yolk and sugar till light and creamy, and stir in the durian puree, evaporated milk, and oil and stir to mix.
  2. Gently stir in the sifted flour and salt.
  3. Whisk egg whites with caster sugar till foamy, then gradually add in caster in 3 batches, continue whisking at high speed till stiff peaks forms.
  4. Gently fold in the egg whites (in 3 batches) into the yolk batter.
  5. Pour batter into a 23cm chiffon tin and bake at 175C for 45mins (I use 50mins) or until cooked.
  6. Remove cake from oven and invert pan immediately onto a wire rack and leave it to cool completely.
  7. Remove cake from pan, and serve.

Personally I think that baking at 45mins is not sufficient as the skewer did not come out clean.. So I bake at 50mins.. However, I suggest to add addition 10g of flour as the cake surface is dry, but interior is slightly wet/moist..

Nevertheless, mom love this cake.. she rated it 8/10... However I suspect it's because she likes durian.. So for her, anything that goes with durian is good.. Haha! I wrote down in a short note from on the recipe, next time try pairing this cake up with durian mousse.. I think it will be heavenly! Hehe!

But I would say that this cake is quite sucessful! Will definitely try this again, when the durian season (June/July) approach! Hehe!
