Heirloom Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Summer is on a slow decline here in Sydney. Thunderstorms cool the spiking temperatures every few days and tease you with the anticipation of autumn. On days like today when the sun is on vacation and there is a delicious chill in the air, there is nothing more...

Doodle In The Cake Pan With This Fast Marble Slice

A couple of weeks ago I was rushing to meet my project deadline before picking my son up from school and driving him to a play date. I had 40 minutes at best after I wrapped up my final logo presentation before leaving home. Overcome with a sudden urge to bake [I...

Milk Bundt Cake

Earlier this year I embarked on The Great Kitchenaid Challenge. I have owned a dear little frail-looking Phillips hand mixer for ten years now. It has been my steady companion in all of my baking triumphs and tribulations. It is faded, has food stains (no, I can't be...

Brown Butter Lemon Friand Cake

This cake was a thought. An idea that took flight and landed in a white pie plate. It came about slowly with a lick here and a taste there. A haphazard yet thoughtful marriage of ingredients. My ode to autumn. A bid to hold on to the season that has passed. The sin of...

Cakewich - White Chocolate Sandwich Cake With Jam And Cream

My youngest hit the ripe old age of 3 earlier this year and with a maturity that only a 3 year old can have, he proclaimed "I am a Chef!". For the 2 months prior to his birthday, he had been getting down and dirty with all things food. Wanting to make...

I always get excited for long weekends. It usually means living in pyjamas and indulging in some slow kitchen cooking and baking projects while sneaking away every now and then to sip some hot tea and play hide and seek with the soft winter sun poking through the bare...
