Pandan Cheese Cake for Grandma’s 78th Birthday!

29 Oct

Had a headache thinking of what to make for my Grandma’s 78th birthday!

She has been a loyal fan of my cakes and I wanted to make something special and different for her.

And since she doesn’t like her cake too sweet, anything fondant-coated is out of the question.

After much consideration, I decided to go with a green-based cheese cake for her as her favorite colour is green and she loves cheese!

 

Simple pandan cheesecake for Grandma!

 

I didn’t want to use any colouring for the cake so I tinged it naturally with some blended pandan leaves and it turned out great!

Besides adding a nice natural light green tone to it, the Pandan leaves added a nice fragrance and blended well with the cheese cake!

I topped it off with a cute figurine of my grandma donning clothes in her favourite colour, together with the pair of her favourite pet bunnies and a longevity peach to wish her a long fulfilling life.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

Chewy Nutella Cookies with a slightly charred Marshmallow!

10 Aug

Yummy Gooey Centre!

Made this with a friend on a sleepy monday afternoon!

Not a big fan of chewy cookies cause I like mine crunchy, but this was yummy!

And really rich -.-“.  Gave me a major sore throat afterwards..

My friend got the recipe online and it’s really easy to make.

It only requires 5 simple ingredients and very little of your time to make.

Good for a lazy weekend when you have a sudden sweet tooth craving!

 

Nutella Cookies

  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup marshmallows

Preheat oven to 175°C. Stir together Nutella, flour, sugar and egg until thoroughly combined.

Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Push marshmallows into the middle of each cookie and press down firmly with your palm to flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until set.

Leave to cool and Enjoy! ;P

focaccia

Haven’t made focaccia in a long while..

2nd attempt by the way..

a little too dry for my liking.. should have been more liberal with the olive oil!

nevertheless, it disappeared within the next day..

Love the smell of herbs! =)
