    Easy banana muffins

    by  • April 24, 2020 • Recipes • 0 Comments


    Being a lazy cook, I try as much as possible to minimise washing up. This recipe uses only one bowl, unlike most muffin recipes that requires more. It uses basic ingredients, and no mixer required. So if you have some bananas lying around, which I somehow always do, give it a go.    ...

    Homemade ciabatta – first attempt

    by  • July 14, 2012 • Recipes • 4 Comments


    My first attempt at making ciabatta was quite a messy affair. I thought I followed the recipe to a t, and for some reason which I still haven’t figured out, the dough was way too wet to be shaped by hand. And by wet, I mean almost pouring consistency. Not one to give up...

    root beer bundt cake6

    I thought this would be fun to make. And it’s pretty easy too. In fact, I’ve bookmarked this recipe ever since I got hold of the Baked cookbook. The combination of root beer and chocolate is simply genius and really addictive.   The recipe calls for over 2 cups of the root beer. Matt Lewis...

    I was at the farmers’ market the other day and ended up with two pomegranates. Don’t ask me why, I’m just prone to buying the unexpected every now and then.   What do you do when you’ve two pomegranates sitting in the fridge? Not wanting to waste, I googled and found this brilliantly easy...

    I have a confession to make. I love bread. I love eating it and I love making it. For me, there is nothing more comforting than the smell of fresh baked loaves.                  If you eat bread quite a fair bit, it is worth investing in a bread...

      You must be wondering why go through the trouble to make pasta when it is so easy to pick it up from the store. Somehow, fresh-made pasta has this wonderful texture that is just not attainable with dried ones. Once you’ve tried the fresh-made ones, you would not want to go back to...

    Fancy some home-made preserves to go with your morning toast? It’s easier than you think. I had a go at jam-making last weekend. And the results were so rewarding I wondered why I’ve been settling for store-bought preserves all this while. Go ahead, give it a try. You would be glad you did. Easy...
