Even though I’ve never visited Levain Bakery in New York, there are enough videos online to prove they are arguably the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie in Manhattan. Search for “Levain Cookie” in YouTube or the internet and you’ll find tons of online tutorials on how to make these thick and chunky cookies. They are crisp on the outside and moist in the centre. They are SERIOUSLY delicious!
It’s that time of the year again where home bakers would fire up their ovens, break out their “weapons” and start their annual festive baking marathon. How could I miss out on all the fun and action, right? I have been making these for many, many years and everyone who tries them agrees they’re out-of-this-world delicious! I could not believe I‘ve not share this recipe here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
