Soy Milk Jelly Recipe @

A nutritious and refreshing  dessert made with soy milk. I had use a store bought and mildly sweetened soy milk but if you can get hold of unsweetened ones that is so much better.

Also added about a cup of  sliced canned peaches but this is optional, feel free to choose other fruit of your choice. This fruit enhance the flavor and make it prettier too.  Serve your guest with a beautiful  jelly set in a smaller jelly mould.

Soy milk can be a healthy alternative to diary milk for people who are lactose-intolerant or vegan.

Onion Pancake Recipe @

These batter based  savory Onion Pancake are quick and convenient to make using simple ingredients commonly found in your kitchen.

This straight forward recipe  was comforting  and  can be consumed immediately after it has been prepared. I had used milk to obtain softer pancake but you can also  use water or other non dairy milk such as almond milk, rice milk. soy milk  to mix the batter.

Addition of onion makes these pancake subtly sweet and  ideally goes well with a bowl of spicy gravy or chutney of your choice.

Bread baking  really makes my day. I had tried all sort of yeast bread but the most requested  was a sweet bread.

This time, using  a yeast raised dough and filled with banana baked in muffin pan. Actually you can use any filling you like. Make sure to grease your muffin pan  or spray with non stick cooking spray for easy removal.

It is advisable to check after 15 minutes of baking since each  individual oven varies.  If the edges start turning golden brown, that is the right time to remove from the oven.

It was  incredibly  good, addictive and  comforting! .

Yield    :     10

250g all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp instant yeast
2 tablespoon softened butter
3/4 cup warm milk
1/2 tsp salt

4 medium banana sliced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour


Sift flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl.

Add in butter and milk, knead to form into soft dough.

On floured work surface, knead dough until smooth for 8 minutes.

Place dough into oiled and covered bowl. Allow to rise until doubled for 1-1.5 hours.

Punch dough down, roll out into rectangle about 1/4 in thick. Cut out dough using 2 in pastry cutter. Press the dough circles  into each muffin pan, let rest for 10 minutes.

Combine all ingredients for the filling. Spoon the filling into the tartlet, let sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven @ 190C. Bake tartlet for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. You can remove from the oven when the edges start turning golden brown.

Gently remove  them from the muffin pan, transfer onto rack to cool.

Banana Coconut  Loaf Recipe @

I was on  a verge of baking a banana cake unfortunately I don't have any more milk. So the best option was to make use coconut milk found in my pantry.

Had use a pack of 200 ml coconut milk and top up with water to make up a cup. You can find  coconut milk in an aisle of supermarket displaying Asian goods or else pick up a can of coconut cream.

Before adding more sugar to the batter, kindly check how sweet your banana was but for me half a cup of sugar was just right.

Really impressed that   the addition of coconut milk makes  this loaf  deliciously tropical , super moist and beautifully sliced. Highly recommended to bake a batch this weekend!
