Bear Naked Food blueberry coffee cake

Blueberry Coffee Cake

- Despite the name Blueberry Coffee Cake, this delectable crumbly sweet has absolutely zero coffee content. This American-style classic cake is meant to be eaten during breakfast and goes really well with an aromatic cuppa coffee, hence the name.

Bear Naked Food rustic apple tart

Rustic Apple Tart

-What makes a good Rustic Apple Tart? Is it an amazing flaky crust or an irresistible fruity centre? All of them. This fail-safe recipe has a sturdy yet tender crust and the free-form shape means you do not even need a pie plate or baking pan to make this. You could use any leftover fruit in your fridge - strawberries, blueberries, peaches, etc. I'm using three granny smiths and one red gala apple for this 8-inch tart.

Lemon Drizzle Cake

-Lemon Drizzle cake is a special and quintessential recipe to serve up this Christmas. A bundt pan is used to create a more regal looking cake for this special occasion. If you do not have a bundt pan however, any normal baking pan would work just fine.

Bear Naked Food Ultimate Sticky Buns

Ultimate Sticky Buns

-Ever since I’ve bookmarked this recipe from America’s Test Kitchen, I’ve been eager to put this Ultimate Sticky Buns to test. Sticky Buns are really like cinnamon rolls with a nutty, gooey caramel topping. Most of the sticky buns I’ve tasted tend to be greasy and overly-sweet. Honestly, I’m not a fan of overly buttered baked goods.This recipe promises light, moist and fluffy dough thanks to the addition of flour roux (aka tang zhong) which is a cooked flour paste. This method can also be used for soft bread rolls and buns

Flourless Cloud Bread

Since I saw this Cloud Bread making waves on the internet some time last year, I’ve been wanting to give this super easy 4-ingredient recipe a try. Now, traditionally, one of the crucial ingredients for bread making is flour, yet this recipe calls for none. The method resembles very much like making a soufflé yet less complicated so there is no really no messing up on this one (I hope). The only thing you'll want to take note is the whisking of the egg whites. When the instruction states beat egg whites until STIFF peaks, you must really beat them till STIFF peaks. The stiffer the better. That way, your cloud bread will hold their shapes well when you transfer them onto the baking tray...

Homemade Baked Beignets

These soft, pillowy bites of yeasted dough are as delicious as they look. Oh, for those of you who are not acquainted with Beignet, it is usually made with yeast, bread flour, evaporated milk, deep fried and dusted with a generous coating of icing sugar. Think of it as the cousin of churros. This no-machine needed dough can be easily mixed together by a wooden spoon or hand and instead of deep frying them, I popped them into a preheated oven of 180°C/350°F and baked them to golden brown perfection. You could definitely deep fry them as well in medium hot oil for a couple of minutes...

Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache

Truth be told, when I first came across this Chocolate Layer Cake with Caramel Ganache in Rose’s Heavenly Cakes by cake goddess Rose Levy Beranbaum, I skimmed past the recipe and did not even bother to attempt it. Perhaps it was the lack of an illustration of the cake or maybe the daunting 3-page instructions, whatever the case was, I’m glad I finally rolled up my sleeves and did it. The end result is worth the 2 days effort...

Lemon Layer Cake with Lemon Curd Frosting

Sweet and creamy dessert cakes always taste fantastic when lemon is used as a main flavouring ingredient. The sharp, fresh and acidic citrus aroma of lemon contrasts wonderfully with the rich and sugary taste of cream cake. A perfect balance between creamy, sweet and sour...

Plaited Brioche

There is this certain sense of joy and satisfaction whenever you make your own bread. Although seemingly daunting at first, baking bread at home is equally fun and relaxing. It is a great skill to have, and an addictive activity. Many people have the misconception that bread making is difficult. In reality, it is not. It is just time consuming. Which makes it the perfect activity for days when one has to stay indoors. Plaited brioche is absolutely delicious and can be eaten on its own, as a sandwich or fried like a French toast. A simple but indulgent way to enjoy brioche, is to slice it and spread it with a thick layer of butter. The difference between brioche and normal bread, is the fact that brioche contains eggs and butter, which gives it a much richer taste and flavor...

This recipe brings together 2 wonderful components - Victoria Sandwich Sponge and Roasted Strawberries.

The Roasted strawberries alone are also very delicious. However, nothing beats having Victoria sandwich sponge together with roasted strawberries. If you have guests coming over, this easy yet tempting dessert would be a pleasant surprise for them...

Latte Chiffon

Who likes Latte? Me! Who likes Chiffon cake? Me! This subtle coffee flavored chiffon cake is made for all coffee lovers out there. This fluffy and moist sponge cake goes so well with what else, but a warm cuppa latte. If you are caffeine intolerant, using decaffeinated coffee would be most ideal. In this day and age, health-conscious people and would avoid overly sweetened desserts and cakes. Like me. The level of sweetness errs towards the milder side so if you have a sweet tooth, you might need to adjust with more sugar...
