The issue with baking with bananas is that most of the bananas we get at the grocers are quite raw and you'd need to let it sit a couple of days before it is ripe enough for baking. This is one of those weeks when, earlier in the week I really wanted to eat a... Continue Reading →

The first time I heard about this super rich Italian dessert was a few years ago when I was discussing baking with an Italian colleague from Sicily. As a chocolate lover, I was very intrigued. But, there aren't too many recipes online and I certainly couldn't find any in my stash of recipe books. So,... Continue Reading →

While I don't think there was anything wrong with last week's chocolate tarts, somehow, it just didn't hit the spot. So I decided to give it another try, this time with my square tart rings (aren't rings round??). And I have to say, I do like this rendition a lot more. Firstly, I absolutely loved...

How unfair! Anyway, I had a strange craving for something with chocolate and raspberries. And my Silikomart Parfum mold... Continue Reading →

I have always been curious about the chocolate and passion fruit pairing. The Mogador macaron from Pierre Hermé is a little too tart for me. So for my attempt, I decided to tone down the passion fruit for a bit. To prepare the passion fruit purée, I scrapped the seeds out of 6 fruits, bring... Continue Reading →

The last time I made this I thought the pistachio and raspberry flavours didn't really come through.
