Semperit/OldSchool Butter Cookies

10 Aug

Class ended a little early today so I got home and decided to start the pre-Raya/Eid baking with ‘Semperit‘ .Semperit is basically  butter cookies taken to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.It’s very light,crumbly and literally melts in your mouth.The cookies are just so pretty which is an added PLUS.

The recipe is adapted from a popular Malaysian website, myResepi. So why not spare 2 hours of your day and prepare these babies from scratch!It’s easier than you think 😉 .

My first attempt at Semperit was in Adelaide a couple of years back.Well,Raya down under was different but in a good way.I remember baking these until 2am in the morning cause we had a miniature oven back then. So to my Adelaide friends that I have crossed path with & especially to my peeps at 805,803,my favourite red cabbie,my Stars Align family and my crazy girl from botanic apt,

this one’s for you.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

8 Aug

I first heard of the red velvet cupcakes while scrolling through Martha Stewart’s website.It’s basically a lighter version of a chocolate cupcake but in the shade of dark red and topped with cream cheese frosting.If you must know,the color of the cake is achieved through a chemical reaction between the buttermilk,vinegar and cocoa powder and  a tinsy bit of red food colouring to intensify the colour.

The recipe that I used for the cupcakes is from my oh-so-awesome online baking guru,Bakerella.I have no complaints about this recipe. It’s very light and moist with a subtle chocolate taste which paired so well with my favourite cream cheese frosting recipe.

Pandan Chiffon Cakes

8 Aug

I have always been intrigued by chiffon cakes in general.Chiffon cakes are light as a feather yet still very moist and oh so very fluffy.

I usually opt for chiffon cakes just because it’s a much healthier option due to the absence of butter .

The chiffon cake that I will be sharing with you beautiful today is Chiffon Cake infused with fresh pandan flavor.

A match made in Heaven.

French Macarons

French macarons with chocolate ganache filling

 

How can you not LOVE French macarons? A perfectly made macaron should have an eggshell-like crust with a soft centre and pretty little ruffles running along the sides.

 Hence, my journey to baking the ultimate macaron begins. After two very unsuccessful attempts,I have learnt that macaron baking is a very delicate process and somewhat tedious especially for a novice baker like me. After a little tweaking of the recipe here and there, lo & behold I present to you,

my French perfection.

Mango Mousse Cake

7 Aug



I had a couple of beautifully ripe mangoes in the kitchen,hence I wanted to make a cake that incorporates fresh mangoes .What better way to showcase our seasonal fruit other than the Mango Mousse Cake?:) 

The mousse cake has a base of a soft and moist sponge cake followed by a layer of mango mousse with chunky bits of fresh mangoes and topped with a layer of mango purée jelly. 

I am very pleased with the result as every layer goes so well together.The layers really compliment each other and it accentuates the natural sweetness of the local mangoes.

If you’re not a huge fan of mangoes,any kind of fruits can be substituted or if you are having trouble finding fresh fruits,you can use canned fruits like lychee or peaches for this recipe.
