When I saw Bake Along #71 is Jam Doughnut Muffins, I immediately wanted to join the fun. This doughnut muffin is very easy to make. With a couple of quick stirs, the batter is done and all you need is to add some jam inside. I prefer to make them into mini muffins (I used friand pan). The muffin tasted like a doughnut with a sprinkling of sugar on top and they can be quite addictive especially when served warm.

Last week when I saw Fion's Almond Pound Cake recipe using dairy whipping cream, I knew that I had to try out it soon as I've some leftover whipping cream in my fridge. Moreover I was afraid that it'll turn bad if I left unused for a little longer. So, I quickly baked this Almond Cake over the weekend. I followed Fion's recipe exactly but added an extra 2 tablespoons of almond meal in it. The cake texture was very fine and tasted really good, fragrant and soft. I couldn't resist reaching for another slice and enjoyed it with a cup of tea.

The big craze recently is cooking healthy Tomato Rice which has appeared in Facebook and circling in the blogosphere. Tomato Rice is very easy to cook. It's just like our daily rice but in this case, we cook the rice with one whole tomato in it. Then mash up the tomato and mix with the rice with little salt and pepper and serve. I definitely wish to join in the craze too and here is my version Tomato Rice with ham and broccoli. You can also add toss in some corn or mixed veggies to make the Tomato Rice more colourful.

I was very happy to meet up with Linda of RotinRice again recently. Our last meeting was more than 4 years. We had an enjoyable lunch on the day that Linda arrived and spent a few hours walking at Chinatown after that. Linda gave me some lovely gifts and I love them all especially the beautiful cookbook. After browsing through the recipes on this cookbook, The Afternoon Tea Collection, I decided to try out the Madeleine recipe with the madeleine pan that Linda gave me. I love the Madeleines, they tasted delicious and not too sweet to my liking. Moreover it only took about 10-12 minutes of baking time. This small dainty cake was very fragrant with a little crispy outer layer served once cooled down. A perfect companion to serve with a cup of coffee or tea for a lazy afternoon.
Thank you Linda for your thoughtful gifts :)

This No Bake Caramel Pudding is an easy recipe made of gelatin. The smooth pudding custard and soft caramel on top is quite similar to the Crème Brulee, just that for Crème Brulee, the caramel is hard which will soften upon baking. Definitely an after meal delicious dessert especially for those who have a sweet tooth.

When I saw the Bubble Rice Cookies posted by Irene on her blog few months ago, I know I'm going to love it. These Bubble Rice Cookies were really addictive that I couldn't stop myself from popping them into my mouth one after another and almost finished almost half of them gone while watching TV. You can easily make these at home without much effort ~ have a go at it! Your kids will definitely ask for more!
Enjoy & Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Here is another light, moist and gluten free cake. You can never imagine that only 15g of rice flour and a quarter teaspoon of baking powder with some grated apple can make this cake so wonderfully delicious. This cake has a nutty fragrance from the pistachio nuts and ground almond. The cake still stayed soft even after being chilled for 2-3 days. I baked this cake twice in a week and received many compliments from friends and family. Do have a try on this super easy yummy cake. You'll never regret it.

After seeing Cheah post her beautiful Pumpkin Choc Chip Muffins, I also wanted to bake some as I still have some pumpkin leftover in my fridge. Totally agree with Cheah, these muffins are moist and delicious. especially with the choc chips and cranberries in them. Definitely going to bake these again soon.
