Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

The beauty of making cinnamon rolls at home is No. 1: your kitchen will smell heavenly like a bakery, No. 2: you’ll get to eat them fresh from the oven and No. 3: you’ll get to dip your fingers in that cream cheese glaze (and lick it!). Since this was my first time making these Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, I was pretty surprised it was not as daunting as I had imagine...

Churro Cream Puffs

Pâte à Choux (choux pastry) may sound all fancy but it is really relatively simple to make compare to cupcakes or muffins. Whether you are making cream puffs or eclairs, it is basically the same formula, except the piping shape. Pâte à Choux (choux pastry) may sound all fancy but it is really relatively simple to make compare to cupcakes or muffins. Whether you are making cream puffs or eclairs, it is basically the same formula, except the piping shape. f When I came across this churro cream puffs recipe by Barbara Bakes, I knew I had to make it. It is not every day I get to try a churro-flavored cream puff so I have to know how it tastes. I won’t even bother to wax lyrical about the taste of these iconic little French pastries. They taste as good as they look. Period...

Auntie Anne’s Copycat Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

Having grew up eating Auntie Anne’s pretzels where each and every pretzel is made fresh, I was naturally skeptical when I came across this Auntie Anne’s Copycat Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites recipe. Could I really achieve that soft, fluffy, chewy and sinfully delicious biscuit by making them at home?...

Molten Lava Bun

There is something really satisfying about making (and eating) your own buns, especially these molten lava buns. The “molten lava” is none other than the ever popular salted egg yolk custard filling. I had a fun time making the step-by-step video below, especially the part where I get to pry open the buns to reveal the filling inside. Also, I made a new friend that day called Calories...

Sweet Potato Rice Donut

Don’t mind me – Korean cuisine has always held an important spot in my heart/tummy and if you read about my jjajangmyeon post last week, you’ll understand my constant craving for K-food. These sweet potato rice donuts are also known as “Chapssal Donuts”. They are sold at street food markets all over Seoul.

Gudetama Egg Tarts

Thanks to my 15-year old teenager who introduced Gudetama to me, I got myself acquainted to this Sanrio character. I do not fully comprehend (up till today) what the hype is with this egg yolk character but based on its Facebook page likes of 145055, this sweet lazy egg certainly has its strong base of ardent followers and I must admit, he is growing on me. Gudetama aside, this egg tart recipe adapted from Two Bites and Annielicious Food mimics that of Hong Kong egg tart - a soft flaky crust with smooth creamy custard filling...

Lychee-tini Jelly Shots

This Lychee-tini Jelly Shots has been on my to-make list for quite a while. The original version contains alcohol – using either Cointreau, vodka or martini. Since I’ll be bringing this tray of jelly for a family potluck gathering later, I’m going to go the virgin route and use a can of fizzy Kickapoo Joy Juice instead. This way, my little cousins will get to enjoy them as well without getting into trouble with the parents...

Double Chocolate Pavlova with Mascarpone Cream

This Double Chocolate Pavlova with Mascarpone Cream is made with one of my favorite girlfriends in mind. She is a huge fan of chocolate, meringue and also gluten-intolerant. Action speaks louder than words, I actually made this for her birthday (few weeks back) and hand delivered it right to her door. And yes, it lasted the 25-min journey and kept well in the fridge even till the next day...
