Free Form Cherry Pie

I prefer to make pie compared to baking a cake. Somehow I don’t have a good relationship with cakes except pound cake, I can only make pound cake… Recently I made a greek yogurt cheesecake. My cheesecake looks like melted ice cream, OMG!!! What happen to the beautiful cleanly sliced cheesecake that I always see…

Creamy Creme Caramel

Creme caramel is a simple dessert but you can’t keep your eyes and your mouth away from it. I have tried making creme caramel many times. And there are so many things that can go wrong. See, I have tried steaming it, got wrong twice on the measurement of milk that results in soft steamed…

Passion Fruit Tart

I got these passion fruits from Paddy’s Market in Sydney. These fruits stood out because of the smell. I remember this stall that sell fruits stood next to a lot of fish stalls and when I passed by, I got a whiff of the passion fruit smell among the fishes smell. You know that fish…

Pumpkin Panna Cotta with Caramel Syrup

I wanted to make this long time ago but I can’t find a suitable size of pumpkin for this dessert. I don’t want to use a basketball size of pumpkin to make this dessert unless I have a big crowd to feed. Although if you have a big crowd to feed, please find a big…

Coconut Jam Tart (Kaya Tart)

This is like the national jam of Malaysia, in Malay language, we call it “Kaya”. Made from coconut milk, egg and fragrant with pandan leaves, this jam is usually spread on toast along with margarine or butter. The sweetness from kaya and the slightly salty butter/margarine will tingle your tongue. It is best eat along…

Coconut Panna Cotta with Palm Sugar Syrup

I made panna cotta again! Sorry folks. It’s not that I am obsessed with panna cotta. It’s just that I happened to have a lot of cream in my fridge and I thought why not use it all and turn into delightful dessert that you can store in the fridge for 4 or 5 days….

Cheese Phyllo Triangles with Honey & Rosewater

I always love the combination of rose water, cardamom and pistachios. The potent fragrance of rose water combine with the intense cardamom aroma, the green pistachios and the purple and red crushed rose petals, all these clashing of colours and aroma just let you feast your smell senses and eye senses first. In many Persian…

Panna Cotta with Mixed Berries

I have always thought that Panna Cotta is hard to make. It is an elegant dessert that wobbles. This white pudding with dark coloured  mixed berries contrasting the colour will let you feast your eyes first before your mouth. Scoop a spoon, dip with a bit of mixed berries compote and put in your mouth. You…

Waffles Waffles

This is my ideal waffle eating scene: Waffle fresh out from the waffle maker – hot. I quickly spread butter on top and see the butter melts. Then I pour syrup all over the waffle. I must also make sure the syrup is evenly distributed in each square so that I can enjoy every inch…
