Sweet sweet mornings and Mango bread pudding

What defines a morning person? Are these the people who wake up super early in the morning and already are balls of energy ready to burst? Are these the people who never seem to have any problems waking up at 4AM but are in bed by 9 in the evening? Or perhaps these are the …

{Filipino Food-Love} Days of pan de sal lovin’

I have very real love for breakfast. But among all the breakfast foods I enjoy, I have to say there is nothing quite like a hot piece of pan de sal in the morning. A perfect pan de sal is super soft, light, and airy, with a slightly crunchy exterior. It has just a hint …

Hi chocolate, it’s nice to matcha!

Did I really just write that title? I’m sorry. So I finally managed to track down some matcha powder some weeks ago, and unfortunately it’s not the sort I’m looking for. It seems like a really mild type of matcha. From what I’ve been seeing in photos, the concentrated one has a greener hue; and …

Finding resolve + Hot Cross Biscuits

As some of you my dear readers know, the start of this year hasn’t been particularly pleasant because of a certain “discovery” that happened.

If only life were as easy as braiding lemon breads

{Countdown to Christmas} My first panettone

I think one of the best things in life is breakfast. I can’t seem to survive the day without it. Mornings composed of coffee and some form of bread are perfectly blissful in my book. Oh, and silence. I like to take my breakfast with a side of that. When I think about it, my …

I constantly dream about autumn baking

I love autumn. It’s a major reason why I love autumn baking, because it really makes me feel the arrival of autumn down to my bones. The only problem is I live in the tropics, where autumn is virtually non-existent. Perhaps the closest thing we have to autumn here is the slightly chilly, windy December …

Flo Braker’s pull-apart bread in Herb & Cheese style

Among the homemade yeasted breads I’ve made thus far, I think the pull-apart bread is quickly making its way to the top of my heart. Fortunately, all the recipes I have tried for this particular type of bread have been nothing short of stellar. While my favourite remains to be Flo Braker’s heavenly Lemon-Scented Pull-Apart …
