Granola Bars

I just thought I should be eating more oats and nuts, and granola bars are very healthy and nutritious if they are homemade. Naturally sweetened and no preservatives.

This recipe from minimalist baker turns out pretty good after a random search on google for granola bars. I just substitute flaxseed meal for almond flour, almond butter for peanut butter and used normal vegetable oil, and a mixture of nuts I have on hand. Nothing complicated, a very easy and fast bake, and minimal washing!

Hokkaido cupcake with cheese

I baked again today! Recipe from here (Nasi Lemak Lover). I think it’s very close to the very popular traditional sponge cake that people are queuing up to buy.

Very yummy, because I usually prefer sweet over savoury desserts. The parmesan cheese sprinkled on top really adds a different depth to the otherwise boring-tasting sponge cake.

My cakes still cracked though, and I finally know the reason why. My oven was too hot even though I had set the correct temperature.

Banana Chiffon Cake

I did a stocktake of my pantry a few days ago and found out I really need to bake more or I will have throw away all my soon-to-expire ingredients. Too zealous when shopping at Phoon Huat during sale.

And so, this is the banana chiffon cake I baked this morning. I think it has been a couple of years since I baked a chiffon cake because 1) I hate washing up since it need 2 big bowls for mixing and 2) Washing the cake mould is really a pain-in-the-a**.

I prefer baking muffins and bread because there is less washing involve but lately, my taste is geared towards lighter cakes. Less oily, less dense, and it somehow gets finished faster, which means I should be able to bake more often, hopefully.

The cake is very soft and moist from the added bananas. Not bad, can try again.

Recipe here from The Domestic Goddess Wannabe. I’ve always liked her recipes.
