Bread and butter pudding

  Bread and butter pudding is made by soaking buttered stale bread in custard and then baked till the custard is set. This English classic dessert, though made from simple ingredients, takes bread to the next level. It is one of the good old desserts that never fail to please my palate. For most people, the whole idea of making this pudding is to “salvage” the stale bread that is nearly going into...

Fresh mango pudding

  Each time we had dim sum in our favourite Chinese restaurant, we would surely order their best-selling mango pudding. Unlike others, this restaurant used fresh mangoes to make their mango pudding instead of canned mangoes or mango essences. Both its texture and taste of the pudding pleased our palate very well. So, whenever my hubby and son suggested the idea of making this dessert at home, I would refuse...

Homemade applesauce

Apples are traditional remedies for diarrhea. But do you know that raw grated apples are used to treat constipation whereas stewed apples for diarrhea? No, not me. I was totally ignorance about this fact until last December when my son was hit by a stomach virus. When I read up on what food to offer for kids with diarrhea, I found out that we should avoid raw apples!! This is because they contain high fiber...

Cherry yogurt popsicles

If you had been blog-hopping, you would have discovered many posts on popsicles during this summer season. Everyone has his/ her most favourite method of making popsicles to share. I can’t tell you how much I love looking at those individualistic creations. None of them are 100% identical. I’m truly amazed by how a simple recipe can be tweaked in so many interesting ways. So I told myself that I must...

Konnyaku jelly

  Have you heard of Konnyaku?   Konnyaku (蒟蒻) is also known as “konjac, konjaku, devil’s tongue, voodoo lily, snake palm, or elephant yam”. (Can anyone tell why so many eerie nicknames? ). It is a natural food made from a type of mountain potato mixed with calcium hydroxide or calcium oxide extracted from eggshells.   It is a traditional Japanese health food and has been consumed for...

Osmanthus poached pears

  My son loves a variety of fruits, be it sweet or slightly sour. Does that mean he is not picky about fruits? Not really. In fact, he can be outright picky. He clearly likes some (a lot) and dislikes many as well. One particular fruit that is near to the bottom of his preferred list is Chinese pear, especially when served as freshly cuts. He would only take one small bite and give me the standard “Mummy,...

Strawberry crunch

How many of you would think that good nutrition starts with a good nutritious breakfast? Definitely not me when I was staying on my own. I didn’t really put much effort to make sure I have a good breakfast. It was either getting a hefty breakfast or skipping one altogether. Back then, breakfast to me is the least important meal of the day. That was then. Ever since I became a mother and done a bit of research...

Oaty fruit crumble

My hubby and I share one common interest. We both love food, especially dessert. Both of us get very excited when it comes to chatting about dessert. We used to be die-hard fans for desserts before our son came into the picture. Thereafter, our eating habits changed to a more health-conscious regime, as well as eating everything in moderation. That’s why I prefer to bake bread over cakes or...

Lemon cheesecake (non-baked)

  “Do you know you can make a cheesecake without having to bake one? And, you don’t need to use an electrical mixer too!” said J.   “What? No oven? No electrical mixer? Are you sure?” said F4T.   This was my first re-action when J (an ex-colleague) shared her non-baked lemon cheesecake (a.k.a. icebox cheesecake) with me many years ago. As a person with zero knowledge in baking at the...

Triple chocolate brownies – a gift from someone special

Early one morning, FEDEX delivered a parcel to my doorsteps. It was a box of triple chocolate brownies from someone special in London. They looked so delicious and inviting! Who can resist this sinful indulgence, especially when it comes to triple chocolate? Without a second thought, I quickly took one and put it into my mouth to savour. It was sooOOOoo delicious, moist, velvety…….. the best I had eaten...
