Today, I'm finally back with a new recipe that has won the hearts, and stomachs, of friends, family and neighbours alike. I have to admit that our family has been spoiled by the infiltration of seedless grapes that when Dad bought a punnet of seeded green grapes, it took far longer that needed to get … Continue reading Recipe: Hazelnut Cinnamon Grape Cake.
Happy things tend to be round... Cakes, cupcakes, the sun, doughnuts, the moon, bubbles, egg yolks, avocado bellies... Ooh! And pizza. Business has been picking back up with cake orders coming in. Either that or most birthdays fall in June. I'm not complaining. I enjoy baking chocolate cake... I still dread macaron orders but I … Continue reading Round Things.
We're in Phase one post-Circuit Breaker and we're about to go into Phase two at the end of this week. While Singapore slowly loosens its Covid-19 measures and life starts to return back to some kind of pre-virus normality, I'm still happily pulling bread out of the oven. I've always thought myself too impatient a … Continue reading The Night I Almost (Food-)Poisoned the Rennetans.
Have miso, have bananas, make Miso Banana Bread! With a dash of cinnamon of course. I've been baking so much bread lately that I've been neglecting my cakes/pastries. Felt like baking up some banana breads but did not want to do 'the usual'. Also, I've not made mousse cakes in the longest time! So black … Continue reading Recipe: Miso Banana Bread.
Going German with homebaked sourdough pretzels. This time, I managed to shape the pretzels much better although still not perfect. At least they taste just as pretzels should! Had to put this photo up because it was the best pretzel I shaped. Lol. We ate these alongside some paprika oven-baked wedges, nuernburger bratwürschen (German sausages) … Continue reading Recipe: Krausalat.
Florian and I decided that every weekend, we'll spend time together in the kitchen making a nice dinner for the four of us. I'm cooking most evenings which I'm thoroughly enjoying. I'd like to think we've been having mostly good meals, definitely more healthful considering I'm stingy with salt and oil. Most recently, Mum and … Continue reading Recipes: Mediterranean Night.
Managed to spend this week blessing friends with fresh loaves of bread. I don't know if it's a blessing for them or whether it's unfortunate having to be my guinea pigs. I'm glad they happily received the breads and have gone through a few slices already. Flaxseed bread. Still not making perfect breads but I … Continue reading Recipe: Earl Grey Scones. Bless and Be Blessed.
Last weekend, hubsy got back into the kitchen and baked up another German classic - hazelnut cake. The ground hazelnuts were brought back from his last visit to Germany and I wanted him to use it up quick lest it go rancid in our heat and humidity. But first, BREAD! I've been playing around quite … Continue reading Recipe: German Haselnusskuchen
It took a 'circuit breaker' to get the hubs into the kitchen. Not complaining! He wanted to bake German cheesecake to satisfy his cravings for them. We had some quark that he had brought back from Germany when he went to visit his grandfather. They needed to be used so last week, he took the … Continue reading Käsekuchen and Sourdough.
It looks like lots of people are still happily gallivanting and flouting the measures that the Ministry of Health has put in place to try and contain Covid-19. Come on people! Please take this seriously. The longer everyone takes to get it together, the longer we're going to be in this 'Circuit Breaker' phase, the … Continue reading Recipe: Mediterranean Seafood Stew.
