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

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?

Bear Naked Food Mango Sticky Rice

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.

Sticky Toffee Banana Cake

Sticky Toffee Banana Cake is a sinful and delightful treat that is fitting for any and every occasion. Rich and aromatic banana cake drizzled with warm treacle toffee sauce would be a pleaser for anybody. It is also a perfect way to use up old bananas that would otherwise need to be thrown away.

Bear Naked Food Chinese-style swiss roll

Chinese-Style Swiss Roll

Growing up, I remember tagging along with mom to the local old-school confectionery store near our house to get our breakfast items. Paper wrapped sponge cake, Pandan coconut waffles, fluffy, cottony soft swiss roll. Ah, those are some of the sweet memories of my childhood.

Bear Naked Food Easy Walnut Pie

Easy Walnut Pie

- Most of the time, walnuts are often eaten on their own as a snack. Touted as the king of nuts, walnuts are not only a healthy brain food but also could help to prevent heart disease and cancer. This Easy Walnut Pie is chock-full of roasted walnuts and a warm molass-y filling.

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
