Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Peanut butter cookies generally originated in US and is a classic American snack since 1900s. The flavor profile is sweet & salty – just like how peanut butter tastes like. There are no hard and fast rule on what type of peanut butter (chunky or creamy) to use and generally, JIF and Skippy are the common brands...

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?...

Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes

Recently, I’ve been going town at strawberries. They seemed to be crying out “Buy me!” whenever I walked past the fruits section in supermarkets. So the star of today’s Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes recipe is none other than strawberry! They are incorporated in the batter, frosting and also in the center of the cupcakes.

Crispy Bak Kwa Cookies

For the benefit of non-Singaporeans/Malaysians, Bak Kwa aka 'Rou Gan', is a sweet-savory Chinese pork jerky. It is often made with pork although there are other variations such as beef and chicken.

Almost Famous Amos Cookies

I’m a Famous Amos cookie junkie. Especially the no-nut chocolate chip version. That way, I could enjoy the sweet, chocolatey, buttery goodness in every bite. While it is tempting to “up-size” the purchase (100 g free for every 300 g purchased), I was disciplined enough to buy no more than 100 g each time...
