Raisin Walnut Loaf Bread (Pre-Ferment Dough) 老面种果干软吐司



As you can see from my posts, I really love exploring bread recipes since it is one of the easiest food to serve for breakfast and snack time! Haha :)

I was really happy to have chanced upon this blog, and to decide to try this pre-fermented dough (老面种) bread recipe.

While it may sound fanciful, this pre-fermented dough is really easy to make - just mix it together - and it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. And this makes the bread really, really soft! Not to mention that it was kept soft even on the 3rd day after being baked.

Shredded Chicken Porridge 鸡丝粥

Chinese Shredded Chicken Porridge with spring onions


I remember one of my favourite food to eat when I was a child, was shredded chicken porridge. Previously I have made chicken porridge with dried scallops, and this time round, I made the porridge with chicken stock + 1 secret ingredient.

My husband, who is usually picky with food, gave thumbs up for this!

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake 巧克力焦糖瑞士奶油蛋糕

Salted Caramel Swiss Meringue Buttercream Chocolate Cake with glass stand and jar of caramel



Just before 2017 ended, I had 2 layers of chocolate cake sitting in my freezer. Sometimes when I bake extra, I'd love to just freeze them! Just in case I didn't make any breakfast for myself (lol!).

So I thought before the cake "expire", I should probably try out salted caramel with chocolate cake! And I really loved it!!

Tau Suan 豆爽


Gula Melaka Tau Suan


I first posted this Tau Suan recipe in 2016. However I was in a rush to take photos, so they did not turn out very nice.

Had been wanting to make tau suan again, but we were just so busy each weekend! So I was very happy to have some time to make it again last weekend.


EQ's 4th Birthday!



The Jie Jie had her birthday celebration in Dec this year!

I am kind of tired out from organising parties because I am usually the only one who does the planning, coordinating and baking lol! And the husband also requested for a no butter/no cream kind of birthday cake, which made me wondered WHY hahah.

In the end, I decided to try out Susanne's deco chiffon cake, since I bought 2 of her books. However, my oven is really temperamental, and I was not able to get the right temperature for no browning.
