White Chocolate Passionfruit Cheesecake

White Chocolate Passionfruit Cheesecake

If there was anything that I’ve dreamed of making, it’s the perfect cake. I’ve always been fascinated by the art concealed within the glass display walls of bakeries and upscale cafes. It was an unattainable dream for a humble self-taught food maker. There have been […]

3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate

3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is proof that vegans can have their (choc) cake and eat it too! This is the simplest recipe you can possibly find for something so melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The other option is melting cacao butter for a chocolate that won’t melt so quickly between […]

Matcha Pound Cake

Sometimes, a simple, home-baked pound cake is all you need to make your day. It can sure make mine. If you’re a sucker for all things Green Tea / Matcha flavoured, this one’s for you! Feel free to add red beans to the mixture if […]

Asian Pear Ginger Cake

Asian Pear Ginger Cake

Given the choice, I’d choose a pear over an apple any day. There’s something about grinding down those little gritty bits into a powdery paste, and gnawing at the core for them long after I’m done with the fleshy part. The grits are called ‘stone […]
