Wholemeal Pau with Red Bean Filling

  I love eating Chinese steamed buns (pau) as much as I love making them. Making pau is a lot easier and quicker than baking bread. I can even knead it by hand. But, I must confess that mastering the skill is not easy. After spending months in making pau, I still couldn’t get a batch of completely “wrinkle-free” pau, no matter how much care and attention I put into kneading, proofing and steaming...

Wholemeal Milk Buns

  These mini buns are made from a basic sweet dough recipe originated from Vinnie Baking Paradise. This recipe has been very popular among the local food bloggers. It uses sponge dough method which has many similarities with the 17-hour sponge dough method I shared previously.   Sponge dough method has always been my preferred method in bread making as compared to direct method for two simple reasons...

Taro Pumpkin Buns

  Hi everyone! I’m back. Life had been very hectic for the past two months till I had no time to blog. My family and I were busy packing and unpacking. Yup, we had moved house! It’s a cross-country move from Singapore back to our home country, Malaysia – my 2nd major move so far! It’s very tiring and challenging. We had a lot of things to juggle and sort out within a short period of time. But now,...

  The month-long school holidays have just started in Singapore. Oh gosh! I dare not imagine how chaotic the house will be with my Mr. Talk-A-Lot around during this period? Though he sometimes had me on my wit’s end, I still cherish a lot the precious and priceless moments we shared together. For this holiday, we will be away for a short vacation starting tomorrow. So, you won’t see any update in my...

Banana walnut cake

If you have been following my blog, you will notice that I have not used nuts in all my previous baking and cooking posts, with the exception of “how to roast cashew nuts”. The reason is that my son was not ready to consume nuts. In one instance one and a half year ago, he developed asthmatic cough after eating a small slice of pancake with grounded peanuts filling. His conditions worsened...

Hot cross buns – A date with Chef Sam

Yes, it was a date with Chef Sam, the young, handsome and talented food technologist baker. Rain or shine I must turn up, that’s what I told myself. It was an important and special date for me. On that faithful day, I went along to Orchard Central, with my bag in hand. No, it’s not a lady handbag with make-up stuff but my camera bag filled up with lenses and flash. Got the clue now? Sorry, no prize...

Healthy multi-grain bread

The class was conducted by a young and talented chef (Chef Sam) who gave a lot of valuable baking tips. Both the items turned out to be very delicious, especially the freshly...
