Cream Cheese filled Banana Cake

Cream Cheese filled Banana Cake

Couple of days ago, I was doing my weekend grocery run and guess what? There were a few big bags of ripe bananas sitting at the fruits weighing station, crying out “Buy Me”, with a price tag of $2 bucks! The offer was too irresistible and since we are huge banana fans, it would be fitting to add that bag into our grocery cart...

Quick and Easy Christmas Fruit Cake

Quick and Easy Christmas Fruit Cake

I’ve been receiving multiple requests from BNF fans requesting for a fruit cake recipe. After multiple researches and few recipe tests, I’m proud to present you this Quick and Easy Christmas Fruit Cake. Actually, you could enjoy this rich and ultra-moist fruit cake anytime of the year but since Christmas is around the corner, I wanted to make this for my dad-in-law who is a huge fan of fruit cakes...

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten chocolate lava cake is a cross between a chocolate cake and soufflé. Other names used are chocolate fondant pudding or chocolate lava cake. Whatever name we like to call it, we can all recognize a MCLC by its signature oozing gooey centre. In this post, I'm going to show you just how easy it is to make this restaurant quality dessert at your own home, even for first-time bakers! You might want to do a test run on this recipe to be sure of the cooking time and the desired consistency. Mine was perfect in 10 minutes. This recipe has been tweaked to serve 2 so feel free to increase the the ingredients accordingly. Oh, another piece of good news. If you want to prepare the cake mixture in advance, you can! Just cover the ramekins with cling wrap and pop it in the fridge. Take them out about 30 minutes before baking.

BNF "Emergency" Chocolate Mug Cake

BNF "Emergency" Chocolate Mug Cake

Some of you might have seen my molten chocolate lava cake recipe a few weeks ago. I've received many positive feedbacks on how their cakes are finally flowing. Two thumbs-up if you are one of them! But alas, I realized not everyone has an oven readily available (i.e my sis) and what happens if you have the sudden urge to have some chocolate cake?? So, I've done some extensive research on substitute for ovens and guess what, the next best baking tool is microwave! Yeah, I'm actually not a big fan of using microwave, it's just not me. I'm more of an oven person (haha, if that makes any sense). But trust me, this recipe works so beautifully using the microwave and best of all, you will be able to savor your mug cake in less than 2 minutes! Although there is no "molten" effect, the end product is moist, gooey and oh-so-mmm. I've given an upgrade to the original recipe by adding in 2 of BNF secret ingredients*!

Vanilla Sponge Cake

Vanilla Sponge Cake

On a scale from 1 to 10, I think the level of difficulty to making a perfect sponge cake is 6/7 (ugh, I can’t decide). Now, don’t confuse this with Chiffon cake. Like its name, Sponge cake has a firm yet aerated texture, similar to a sea sponge, while a Chiffon cake is a very light cake and usually vegetable oil is used instead of butter. You’ll also need a tube pan to make a successful Chiffon cake. Anyhow, that’s another story. Let’s go back to sponge...

Super Moist Banana Cake

Super Moist Banana Cake

What’s the difference between banana bread and cake? They are almost similar except a subtle difference in the taste and texture. Banana bread is not as sweet as banana cake and has a heavier and drier texture. Banana cake, being a cake, embraces the full sweetness of a dessert (of course, you could adjust the sugar level) and is generally lighter and moist...

Moist Chocolate Cake

Moist Chocolate Cake

I know many people are obsessed with light, spongy, fluffy, chiffon cakes. This recipe is quite the total opposite, so am I. I’m obsessed with dark, rich, moist cake. Oh, and it MUST be chocolate. I can’t think of any other cakes that are dark. Today is my hubby’s birthday, who just turned 30-something today (not sure if he wants me to mention his age here hee hee)...

Nutella Banana Upside down Cake

Nutella Banana Upside down Cake

An upside down cake is simply a cake turned over and served upside down. The base is lined with a layer of fruit (usually pineapples) covered in butter and sugar. In case you have leftover Nutella lying around at home (like me) and in the mood for baking, try making this Nutella Banana Upside down Cake, which is an upgraded version of butter cake. If you are not a fan of banana, feel free to replace with mango, pineapple, apple or whatever works for you...

Mini Potato Cakes

Mini Potato Cakes

Mini potato cake (or potato patty) is another of my childhood favorite snack and one of mom’s “western food” recipe. Coming from a typical Asian family, our staple meals were mainly Chinese food so you can imagine when mom made us pork chops, French fries, garlic bread etc, our greedy little mouths would clean up everything on the plate...

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Between Tiger (aka the love of life) and I, can you guess who the bigger sweet tooth in the family is? Judging from the way I phrased the question, quick witted readers would have gotten the answer right in a heartbeat. There’s no other way to describe except that I married an ice cream monster. A rather attractive one I must say. If the kitchen police were to raid our freezer, they would definitely find at least a tub (if not two) of frozen treat in there...

Lemon Glazed Pound Cake

Lemon Glazed Pound Cake

Have you ever wonder what exactly is “Pound” in Pound Cake? I did. Back in the olden days, pound cakes were traditionally made with 1 pound of egg, 1 pound of sugar, 1 pound of flour…well you get the drift. I can only imagine the amount of cake they had to eat...

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Hooray for all gluten-intolerant chocolate cake fans! Today’s recipe is all about chocolate. NO flour allowed. This is a rich and decadent chocolate cake but yet light and fluffy at the same time. Think soufflé – in the form of a cake. Heck, perhaps I should've just called it Chocolate Soufflé Cake! The original recipe calls for 4 ingredients but I added in a pinch of salt to elevate the chocolatey goodness. Sneaky, right?...

Chwee Kueh 水粿 Water Rice Cakes

Chwee Kueh 水粿 Water Rice Cakes

A big high five to my fellow Singaporeans who grew up eating Chwee Kueh as part of your childhood! Today’s post is dedicated to you. When I decided to feature recipes for the upcoming SG50 to celebrate Singapore’s jubilee year, Chwee Kueh was the first item that popped up in my mind...

Easy Banana Chocolate Sheet Cake

Easy Banana Chocolate Sheet Cake

A lot of readers have asked me: “What is a perfect cake to bring to a party?” The answer is in this recipe. Chocolate is really one of the universal sweet that almost everyone will go goo-goo gah gah over with. The thing about bringing food to parties is they have to survive for at least a few hours at room temperature environment and still taste good. Therefore, I highly recommend this Easy Banana Chocolate Sheet Cake. Did I mention it is so easy to put together as well?...

Osmanthus Water Chestnut Cake

Osmanthus Water Chestnut Cake

If you are a fan of Chinese dim sum, this Steam Osmanthus Water Chestnut Cake must be no stranger to you. They are usually served either steamed or pan fried. It is absolutely one of my dad-in-law's most requested desserts from BNF kitchen...

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Happy Friday everyone! ☀ ☀ I often get requests for NO-BAKE recipes, so today’s No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake is written with you in mind! This dessert is especially great if ....

Pandan Chiffon Cake

Pandan Chiffon Cake

If you are from Southeast Asia, then this Pandan Chiffon Cake should be a sight for sore eyes. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered the origin of this light, fluffy sponge cake hails from Indonesia. The signature green of this cake usually comes from the juice of pandan leaves aka screwpine leaves although green food coloring is also commonly used to enhance the color...

Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

If you have made my Outrageous Chocolate Cookies or Red velvet Chocolate Chips Cookies (hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!), you should know my immense love for soft and chewy cookies. Not to mention chocolatey. The craze for adding salt to desserts has been going on for quite some time (salted caramel being the top favorite combination). Since Tiger and meh-bear are salted dessert junkies, I decided to jump into the bandwagon and make these salted chocolate brownie cookies for them...

Banana Bread Cookies

Banana Bread Cookies

Even though they are called Banana Bread Cookies (mainly because of the shape), the texture are super fluffy, moist and almost cake-like. Thanks to the use of the super ripe banana, they smelled and tasted 99% like banana bread. I can’t help but to open the cookie jar every now and then to get a whiff of that addictive aroma.

Crispy Tofu Cakes

Crispy Tofu Cakes

Mention Tofu and most people would not describe this soy product as tasty. In fact, tofu itself is pretty neutral-tasting. However, there are tons of ways to spice up this nutritious and versatile ingredient and these crispy tofu cakes is one of them.
