GF banana chocolate cake
Back to the crazy baking! I’m actually trying to limit my baking because it’s really hard to not indulge when you are at home so much. I’ve adapted this recipe from my GF chocolate pound cake and decided not make a non-dairy free one so that I can have heaps of Nutella in my cake! So much joy when I bite into a mouthful...Comments 0
Gluten free chocolate pound cake
First post of the year! It has definitely been a while since I’ve posted. With this isolation due to COVID-19, I have more time to bake and to post. However, it is surprisingly difficult to find flour and even gluten free flour in the supermarkets. Which makes me wonder why are people hoarding flour? To make bread in times of need? I am just...
Rosh Hashanah Honey Cake (gf, df)
I’ve always love to immerse myself in different cultures and religion. Each occasion is celebrated with a food with a special meaning behind it. Obviously I’m not Jewish, but a very special grandma told me how she grew up having honey cake every Rosh Hashanah. However, the honey cakes that she had in the past were often dry. Since I love to bake and...
Classic flourless chocolate cake (gf, df)
The classic flourless chocolate cake! One of my favourites to make because it is moist and fluffy at the same time. I love decorating my cakes with fresh strawberries and since they are in season now, I definitely made full use of it. I didn’t get a chance to take any photos of the cake slices because it was meant for a house warming...
Orange and coconut cake (gf,df)
It has been two months since I’ve posted anything. It is really hard to find time to bake and post now that I am working almost full time. I finally had some time this week to catch up on the things that I love to do – that is of course baking. I like to bake according to the seasons and being in Australia,...
South Island New Zealand
The South Island of New Zealand is a more popular tourist destination than the North Island. An ideal amount of time in the South Island would be at least two weeks. If you are thinking of doing any over night hikes especially for the Milford track, do remember to make bookings at least six months in advance because it is extremely popular during the...
Gluten free hot cross buns
The annual hot cross buns baking begins. This year, I’m making gluten-free hot cross buns so that Mr X can enjoy. Making gluten free bread is a real challenge. I analysed a couple of recipes and looked at the type of ingredients they had included before coming up with one. The first buns I made tasted good but resembled more like a scone then...
Rock cakes (Gluten and dairy free)
It has been a while since I’ve made a post. I graduated last year and moved down to Sydney. I’ve been trying to juggle with work, yoga and baking. Thank goodness I’m more or less settled now so I can start on sharing my recipes again. Rock cakes… honestly, I had no idea what they were until Mr XX requested for them. His mom...
North Island New Zealand
Hello Middle Earth! This is my last travel for 2018 and also my graduation trip. When I was planning this summer road trip for both North and South Island, I was very shocked by how expensive New Zealand is. Everything is easily at least NZD100 per pax hence I had to be very selective in my choice of activities. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed myself in...
Black bean banana muffin (GF)
I’m finally done with four years of studies and now I’m off to New Zealand for my grad trip! So exciting! While I’m sitting at Sydney Airport waiting for my flight, I’ve realised that I haven’t been posting for a long time. I made these black bean banana muffins a couple of weeks ago but have been so busy with moving that I didn’t...
