Melt In Your Mouth Pineapple Tarts

I can almost hear the firecrackers and clangs of Chinese New Year as we approach one of my favourite celebrations of the year. An excuse to have food in abundance, be surrounded by family and a period of guaranteed laughter. A celebration steeped in superstitious beliefs where this one short moment in the year will…

Soft, Fluffy, Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

Some say that nothing beats the smell of fresh baked bread coming out of the oven, that warm cosy scent that for some reason speaks to an innate part of us making us feel like everything will be okay. Even I am guilty of having that sentiment. But I take that back. What it should…

Cruffins + Kouign-amman

Hi everyone, I’m back with another laminated pastry, but this time with cruffins! So before I go assuming you know what I am on about, what are cruffins you might ask? Well, they are a mix of croissants and muffins, something dreamt up and brought to life by the famous Lune bakery here in Melbourne…

Thai Milk Tea Crème Caramel

I’ll be honest, I’ve been feeling rather lazy ever since lock down #2 (Stage 4) settled in. 🙂 Not being able to leave my vicinity has left me feeling rather constraint with what I am able to do, yet at the same time allowed me to take a step back to focus on these recipes…

Mini Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies – Famous Amos Style

Like many, one of my earliest childhood association with chocolate chip cookies stems from the sweet scent of caramelised cookies that wafts into your nose, surrounding you in an almost intoxicating scent, calling out to you as you walk through the busy shopping centres. Irresistible and hypnotic. Before you know it, you’ve found yourself trying…

Blackout Brownies – Two ways – Cakey and Fudgey

Disclaimer: Given I have never tried the bakery brownies that these were inspired by before, I can’t claim how similar or dissimilar my recipe is. What I can say is I and my taste testers (who have tried said bakery brownies before) enjoyed both brownies that I’ve made.☺️ But it is also because of this…

Chocolate Hazelnut Babka Knots

Warning, if you don’t like chocolate, then you might have a problem with this recipe. 😉 I am a firm believer that if I am having a chocolate dessert, then I better be able to taste the chocolate in it. 😉 I’ve had quite a few chocolate babka’s over the years, and I always come…

Pain Au Chocolat | Chocolate Croissant | Chocolatine Recipe

Given that many of us have found ourselves suddenly home bound due to Covid, it seems like there’s no perfect time like the present to work on that checklist of things we have always wanted to bake but never got around to doing so. And in this instance, the world seems to be revolving around…

Soft Indulgent Brownie Cookie

With the world feeling like quite an unknown place these days, I have turned to chocolate as my comfort medium. I would have never imagined a time where toilet rolls are so sought after that they would fly off the shelves quicker than fresh food would. If we were to jump back in time to…
