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...

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...

Banana muffins

  Quite often I heard from some mommies that they always run out of ideas when it comes to preparing teatime snacks for their preschoolers. I consider myself lucky as my son’s kindergarten provides teatime snacks. So far, he hasn’t complaint anything about the snack served in school. When I “interviewed” him on his preference between mommy’s cooking and school lady’s cooking, he cheerfully...

Cranberry scones

I have been making scones quite often as they are extremely easy to make. Without having to bring out the electrical beater, I can easily whip up a batch of warm scones in no time for breakfast, brunch and teatime. The key to the making of a good scone lies in the technique itself.  Do not overwork the dough as it can make the scones hard.  This cranberry scone recipe is adapted from Farmgirl’s Cranberry...

Oatmeal banana raisin muffins

  My son loves oats to bits. He can polish up a whole bowl of oatmeal breakfast that his dad often made for him during weekends. I, unlike him, dislike oats, and will only eat oats in muesli breakfast cereal. Whenever I see oatmeal, it reminds me of the oatmeal I ate when I was sick during childhood. And, this perception has stuck deep into my memory and was tough to erase. That was until recently…….   I...

How to make muffins

  I have been baking muffins for couple of months. Throughout this trial and error period, I learnt 2 important tips in making muffins which I like to share with you in this post. For those who are first timer at making muffins or those whose muffins are still turning out to be less than (or like mine initially, far from) perfect, the following tips will definitely come in handy in your next attempt.   A)...

Banana bread

Do you have problems clearing your fully ripen bananas at home? I always have, and don’t know how to deal with them except to gobble them up fast so as not see them go to waste. That was until recently when I chanced upon a wonderful banana bread recipe from Bits of Taste. The recipe and preparation were adapted from a YouTube video which demonstrated how to make this old fashioned banana bread in a...

Apple soup

Do you know that childen’s song can be used as an effective and influential tool in promoting a healthy diet to toddlers? It may sound weird to some people, but it really worked for my son. “An apple a day keeps the doctor (x4), A-P-P-L-E” – is a song my son learnt from his playgroup that had successfully changed him from one who rejected apple into one who is now an avid...

Banana pancake

I found out this wonderful recipe after reading the post from here. As compared to my previous recipe, this one is lighter and fluffier without adding the wholemeal flour. By adding 2 large fully ripen bananas into the batter, it made the pancakes even tastier and yummy! I had rewritten the steps so that it will be easier to follow. Ingredients: 1 ½ cups (12 oz) plain flour (or 50% plain flour and 50% cake...
