The Banana Bread

Banana bread just like the perfect chocolate cake or chocolate chip cookie is one that is so dependent on personal preference that it’s almost controversial to say you’ve got the “perfect” banana bread recipe. Everyone has an idea in their head of what a great banana bread should be. Banana bread is one of those…

Old School Butter Cake and A Nation’s Birthday

“Few thousand miles and an ocean away But I see the sunrise, oh, just like the other day Picture your eyes as I fall asleep Tell myself it’s alright, oh oh, as the tears roll by” – Oceans Away by ARIZONA There’s nothing like your phone buzzing away with constant reminders of friends and family…

Chocolate Mint Brownie + A small request

It’s been weeks since I promised to post this recipe. My mom flew from Singapore for a visit, Melbourne has enjoyed some hail storm warnings and it’s suddenly that time of the year again where the much coveted Saveur Blog Award nominations have open. And so I have a small request to make for you,…

Bittersweet Earl Grey Honey Cake

Come winter, this is the cake I crave. The warmth of spice and honey that floods your senses as it comes out of the oven, that lovely elusive floral hint from the earl grey brew which plays off the honey as you sink your teeth into that first bite is my idea of a warm…

One of the very first post on this blog was an Anzac cookie and for the last few months I’ve been tossing around the idea of this bar in my head. Now, it’s finally time to post this deliciousness. I tend to naturally have a sweet tooth, but it’s recently made itself even more prominent…

Blood Plum and Hazelnut Snack Cake

The hardest part of starting any blog post for me is knowing how to actually start it. And that’s where my struggle begins. When my day consists of draining activities that leave me lack luster to post (because any talk of those activities leave me even more drained than before), I end up telling myself…

Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Buns

Easter is pretty much here and I’m enjoying the huge selection of hot cross buns lining the shelves of bakeries. But who would I be if I didn’t decide to make some at home as well? The first time I saw Tivoli Road Bakery’s hot cross bun recipe in their book, I knew I needed…
