Bear Naked Food Easy Baked Apple Crisp

Easy Baked Apple Crisp

Hmm…where do I begin to describe my love for this Baked Apple Crisp? I think it was years ago when I “accidentally” ordered it on a menu, mistaking it as apple pie instead. When it came, I was like okay, it ain’t apple pie but it smelled absolutely heavenly. Upon first taste, I fell in love with this dessert. Think crunchy oatmeal cluster with warm, juicy spiced apples.

Bear Naked Food Best Double Chocolate Eclairs

Best Double Chocolate Éclairs

Éclair is one of those desserts that seem to send “oohs” and “aahs” across the table. It took me almost a day to finish writing this lengthy post. While it may seem daunting, it’s actually quite easy and satisfying to make your own éclairs. Although there are quite a number of components in making these Best Double Chocolate Éclairs, they could be done ahead in advance.

How To Prepare Sago

What is Sago? If you are not familiar with these translucent chewy pearls, they are made from palm stems and the texture is spongy and by itself, there is not much taste. It was only recently that I discovered that Sago actually helps to reduce high blood pressure and promote healthy blood flow to the heart as they contain a decent amount of potassium.

Bear Naked Food Classic Tiramisu

Classic Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert that never fails to bring a smile to my face whenever I have it. Over the past years, I’ve shared two Tiramisu recipes – Tiramisu in a Cup and Tiramisu Cheesecake. This Classic Tiramisu is adapted from Nigella Lawson’s Irish Cream recipe which I’ve been faithfully referencing for all these while.

Bear Naked Food Teochew Steamed Yam Paste Orh Nee

Teochew Steamed Sweet Yam Paste (Orh Nee)

A quintessential old school Teochew dessert with decades of history and nostalgia. This warm and smooth yam paste is bursting with sweetness and a great comfort to many older Singaporeans, as well as a sizeable number of those in the younger generation. Traditionally, Teochew Orh Nee is made by cooking with sugar and shallot oil. This simplified and healthier version uses no oil and the amount of sugar is kept to minimal.

Best Lemon Buttermilk Cake

If there is one cake I would make over and over again, it’ll have to be this Lemon Buttermilk Cake. When I first came across this an episode of Genius recipe from Food52, I immediately bookmarked it and broke out newly acquired Bundt pan.

Bear Naked Food Hilton DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hilton DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie

I gotta admit - this is my first time trying the Hilton DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie. Since DoubleTree by Hilton released their official recipe couple months ago, I’ve been urged by family members and friends to replicate these highly popular cookies (more than 30 million consumed every year*) that are even baked in space. Yes, you heard it right. Who says astronauts can’t bake?

Mango Sticky Rice

Living in a tropical part of the world means we get access to exotic fruits like Papaya, Pineapple, Dragon fruit, Mango, etc, all year round. The sweet and savory combination of this Thai national dessert is something you can’t really get enough of.

Bear Naked Food Lemon Cream Cheese Chiffon Cake

Lemon Cream Cheese Chiffon Cake

Recently, I’ve been experimenting with lemons. I love everything lemon. There’s something about that tangy, puckering taste that leaves me wanting for more, especially in baked goods.
