Following the coffee chiffon a few weeks ago, I have been craving for a coffee dessert. I have not been successful with coffee flavoured entremet, so, I was determined to find some suitable recipes and flavour combination. I decided to turn one of my favourite tart into an entremet. But instead of the accompanying coffee... Continue Reading →

After my not-totally-satisfactory blueberry cheesecake attempt last week, I did more research and realised that, in fact, I have made double fromage cheesecake a few times before. And it's none other than Pierre Hermé's cheesecake mosaïc. So, I used that recipe, replaced the pistachio cheesecake with some lemon juice and zest, and the cherries with... Continue Reading →

Ever since famous Hokkaido cheesecake, LeTAO, arrived at our little red dot, "double fromage" cheesecake is becoming the new "in" dessert. As my prior experience with this type of cheesecake was disappointing, I thought I would try making it at home before investing $28 trying another. During a friend's last trip to Singapore, I promised... Continue Reading →

What's better than a decadent, dark chocolate dessert for Valentine's Day? Trick question. There's nothing better, really. But, to break with tradition, and a close personal second favourite, I decided to make something without chocolate. This petit gâteau is an amalgamation of a few of my favourite non-chocolate components. The only thing I needed to... Continue Reading →

Christmas is in the air! Time to bust out those dusty molds and bake up something special. And I really want to bake up something particularly special to christen this new set of mold. Ever since I read about DA's December cronut - white chocolate peppermint and cherry, I couldn't quite get it out of... 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 →

I have some praline mousse and hazelnut joconde from a few weeks back, and since I was craving some mousse cakes, I decided to make them into mini versions of these petit gateau. As I was lazy, I skipped the coffee in the namelaka, leaving it as plain chocolate namelaka. I also left out the... Continue Reading →

Praline is a tricky ingredient to incorporate into an entremet due to its high sugar content. After a lot of research and testing, plus indispensible advice and recipe sharing from a good friend, I finally came up with a combination that balances sweetness and flavours, with a special accent on the hazelnut praline. And thus... Continue Reading →

The last time I made this I thought the pistachio and raspberry flavours didn't really come through. I told myself for the next attempt I will definitely amp up both these flavours, as it seems like a really promising combination. So, for this attempt, I decided to do away with the joconde layers, and added... Continue Reading →
