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...

Copycat IKEA Fried Chicken Wings

Besides their affordable furniture and home furnishing, IKEA Singapore is also well known for their great range of meals and snacks. In fact, their Swedish Meatballs and Fried Chicken Wings are the most popular items to order. *Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. Ever since I posted my Better-than-Ikea Swedish Meatballs last year, I’ve been wanting to recreate my own copycat version of IKEA Chicken Wings. After two rounds of kitchen testing, I think this is it. Actually, my test testers think these wings are better than IKEA’s...

Korean BBQ Chicken Leg

Bold and bright flavors are the main characteristics of Korean cuisine. And this Korean-scented BBQ chicken leg is no exception. Crispy, salty and wonderfully moist, it is an ideal dish to be paired up with some Korean alcohol such as soju or makgeolli. If you intend to host or take part in a BBQ party, this chicken dish is extremely ideal and will be a definite favorite amongst family and friends. Just half cook the chicken in the oven before finishing it on the grill afterwards. The reason why this has to be done, it to ensure that the chicken is fully cooked before the marinade starts to burn. Garlic and soy sauce are excellent marinade ingredients. However, they do burn fast when being cooked on an open flame. Therefore, it is better to precook the chicken before finishing it off on the BBQ...

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...

Food Review: Yentafo Kruengsonge – famous Thailand’s Pink Noodles at Kallang Wave Mall

If you are a regular traveler to Bangkok, you would be familiar with Yentafo – a distinctively pink noodle dish in Thailand. The “pinkiness” comes from the fermented soybean paste added to the soup. It imparts a distinctive sweetness and essence to the broth. Although it’s not as popular as Thai Boat Noodles, yentafo is a staple choice of noodles amongst the locals. If you are not aware, Yentafo Kruengsonge is an authentic Thai yentafo brand with 28 outlets in Thailand and two in Laos. In Singapore, this is the third outlet after the opening of its first outlet at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard in November last year. The second outlet is at One@KentRidge...

Braised Turnip Rice Bowl

This delicious and comforting dish is simple as it is nutritious. Minced pork and turnip are braised in a thick and fragrant sauce before being doused over steaming white rice. Perfect for rainy days, and as a late night supper. Another upside to this dish is how versatile it can be. Minced pork can always be substituted with minced chicken or minced beef for a slightly different, but equally delicious meal. Likewise, daikon radish also makes an excellent substitute for the turnip. Having this mouthwatering dish over steaming Japanese rice provides a delightful alternative to the usual white jasmine rice as well...
