These are my childhood favourite and many thanks to Joanne Chai for the recipe. I love the eggy flavour and with the use of only 3 ingredients. So happy to get hold of this recipe and recorded in my blog. 

Recipe adapted from Joanne Chai


4 eggs
120g self-raising flour
120g sugar


1) Preheat oven 120 degree.
2) Sift flour, spread flour on baking tray and dry in the oven for 3 - 4 minutes. Leave aside to cool. (For a crispy texture, if you don't like it avoid this step)
3) Heat up the oven to 220 degree.
4) In a mixer beat eggs until fluffy and slowly add in sugar. Turn speed to high beat until it become pale colour.
5)Make sure the mixture is thick not runny(drip down)

Pastry Fruit Cake

I was so eager to try out my new Hello Kitty baking pan and just right that I planned to bake this Pastry Fruit Cake. This is a heavy batter cake and I am happy to see the Hello Kitty imprint so visible. Glad that I bought this baking pan!

Cream Cheese Cotton Cake

Finally I made it! After so many attempts, I successfully baked this Cream Cheese Cotton Cake, perfectly rise so high and cottony texture. Now I can better understand the meringue peak form stage and the way to fold the meringue into the batter. I guess practice make perfect, I will keep practicing it and hopefully I can make more other flavour cotton cake.

Recipe adpated from Jeannie Tay


6 egg yolks
50g butter
50g sugar
100g milk
50g cream cheese
75g Cake flour
20g Corn flour

6 egg whites
100g sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar


1. Over low fire, heat up butter, cheese and 50g sugar until cheese has melted. Add milk and whisk until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and sift in the flours. Whisk until combined before adding the egg yolks. Whisk until well blended. Set aside.
2. Whisk egg white until frothy before adding cream of tartar then gradually add the 100g sugar and continue to beat until firm peaks.
3. Add the meringue to the yolk batter in 3 portions, making sure both batters are well blended but do not over mix.
4. Pour into prepared pan and bake with water bath at 155C for 70-75 minutes. Remove and unmould by inverting on to a plastic board or non stick pan, peel off lining and re-invert back on to a rack for cooling. If the side is still wet-ish, put into the oven to dry with the residual heat for 10-15 minutes.

Green Bean Soup

Green Bean Soup has always been my favourite dessert but I have never cooked the sago right and it turned out starchy. When I came across a tip on Facebook on how to cook sago, I was determined to give it a try and it was a success! 

Below, record for my future reference.

1. Do not wash the sago.
2. Cook sago in boiling water for 10 mins (you can still see small white dots in the sago ).
3. Off the flame and cover for 10 mins. (have enough hot water to cover the sago).
4. Pour sago into a pot of tap water.
5. Drain and add sago into green bean soup when about to serve.

Chocolate Cake

It was a very last minute request to make a birthday cake and immediately I thought of using the No Fail Sponge Cake recipe. I have added Hershey Chocolate powder to the cake, covered with chocolate buttercream and topped with chocolate gananche. Indeed a Chocolate Overdose Cake!

Milk Cupcakes

I was tasked to bake something using 
milk powder and when I came across this recipe, I decided to give it a try. However, I felt the texture was too heavy and it had a strong milky taste. So I topped it with chocolate ganache to blend the taste and it turned out great.

With modifications :


60g butter
60g sugar
100g fresh milk
2 eggs
100g milk powder
120g cake flour
1 tsp baking powder

Couverture chocolate


1. Add butter, sugar and fresh milk in a bowl. Microwave and mix.
2. Add in egg and mix well.
3. Sift in milk powder, cake flour and baking powder and mix well.
4. Scoop batter into cup fillers and bake at 170 Deg C for 20 mins.
5. Topped with melted chocolate and decorative.

Nestum Cookies

Another recipe which has milk powder for my experiment. Few mistakes made, I used Corn Flour instead of Corn Starch and the cookies were under baked (even though I baked for 20mins as stated) which resulted in a chewy texture. The dough was kind of sticky which I am not sure why and so I added more flour. Also, I find the cookies  a little too sweet. I will give it a try again.

With modifications :


100g butter
120g sugar (reduced from 135g)
100g plain flour
50g potato starch or corn starch
50g milk powder
1 egg
1 tbsp Nestum Cereal
Some Nestum cereal (for coating)


1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs gradually and beat until well combined.
2. Add in sifted milk powder, plain flour, potatoes starch and a tablespoon of Nestum cereal. With low speed to stir for a min until well mix to form a pliable dough. Scoop a teaspoon of dough, roughly shape round and put in a bowl of Nestum Cereal to coat the dough.
3. Put in paper cups and bake in preheated oven of 170 Deg C for 25 mins until golden brown.
