Sambal Tofu

I still remember those hot Friday afternoons when I rush home from school for lunch time, having worked so hard (WELL that’s how I viewed my teen life to be 🙂 ), knackered and super happy its finally weekend! Malaysian school finishes earlier on Fridays to allow Muslims to observe their Solat Jumaat secara berjemaah…

Sprats – deep fried the mi-way

In season: July to April (UK) Greater similarity to my favourite Anchovy or Ikan Bilis Besar… I wanted to know how they taste like and seek out if they are compatible with an Asian recipe.. Specifically the Malaysian Indian (mi) way 🙂 I paid just £0.94 for about 15 of these tiny fish at my local supermarket…..

Dwtty Cupcake Galore..

March is a month of celebration in our household. This is the month I had my first born after a hundred pages of pregnancy stories and two hundred pages of labour stories. She was born weighing just 5 pound ++ and nurses in the post labour ward fondly nicknamed her ‘Dwt’, which is a Welsh…

Cranberry and Toasted Almonds Cupcakes

Feels good to have time to blog again after what seemed like endless waves of fibre optic issues, toddler teething, shop hopping and festivals.

Petit BaraBrith

‘Baker in Me’

Experiments and stacks of it for the past few weeks. Improvising existing recipes, trialling new found ones, re-invigorating childhood memories, and innovating a few. Many recipes are in making, and many were imperfect. Everything joyful nevertheless. Thankful for my ever critical baby girl; forward with her thoughts and suggestions, and my hubby who tirelessly washes…

Blueberry and Buttermilk Cake

A perfectly delectable cake. This recipe originated initially from a bundt recipe which I have trialed and tested various times, and revised to my taste. Exciting variation of history exists about Bundt cakes from Wikipedia.  I have to admit, it is always great to find out more about the cakes I so loving bake, serve…

Roti Bakar Gula

When I was munching away my ‘second’ breakfast at work, my intrigued boss asked me; ‘What you having?’ Hesitant for a moment, I uttered ‘Toast with abundance of butter sprinkled with caster sugar’… I stopped and waited for her reactions.. None, I continued ‘Well I know I’m weird and wonderful..’ and smiled. She hmmmned and…

Caramel Strawberry Madeleines

Caramel Strawberry Madeleines with Whipped Cream, Caramelised Strawberry Sauce and Caramelised Almonds. I absolutely indulge in these traditional small French cakes, and  this recipe comprise caramelised strawberries which adds non-intense sour and sharp tang to the cakes. The love for Madeleines continues and another innovativeness shared… Making caramel strawberry sauce   200g Strawberries at room…
