Orange, Cranberry Cream Scones

Specks of orange zest and cranberries

What do I like about these scones? They are buttery, crumbly, moist and the kitchen smell like Christmas as they bake because of the addition of orange zest and cranberries. It is a one bowl recipe and mixing was done using my hands,  therefore washing up afterwards was kept to a minimal. The scones can be made ahead and freezes well.

Hazelnut Sourdough Cruffins

This made a real, good treat for my weekend breakfast. It was assembled the evening before and left overnight in the fridge to develop. An early morning bake ushered in a delicious start to my weekend.

Apple Cake

Beauty is in the simple things. It is how a feel about this simple cake. Simple to make with no fuss in its presentation. Full of apple goodness and tasted even better the next day.

50% Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread


Sourdough bread baking have become a weekly routine ever since I started my naturally leaven bread journey a year ago. I will try to bake at least 2 loaves of the bread weekly for my family and every bake is a learning experience.

Fresh Figs with Thyme Infused Honey

I like fresh figs. I like how the simple, beautiful shades of purple on the outside contrast with the complex white and pinkish structure on the inside. Fresh fig is very subtle in flavour and I like the combination of the slightly sweet, soft flesh against the crunchy, seedy and sticky interior.

Matcha Pound Cake


I like pound cake. It is a 'keep it simple' cake. Baking with simple ingredients, such as fresh eggs, good butter and vanilla, will reward you with a fragrant loaf of goodness.
