No-Bake Rainbow Cheesecake 免烤彩虹芝士蛋糕

Happy goat year everyone! I made this cake for my son's birthday which fall within CNY period. It tastes like a cold dessert which is suitable for the recent hot weather.

Ingredients: (make one 8" round cake)
15pcs Oreo biscuits (remove icing and crush finely)
50g melted butter
100g castor sugar/fine sugar
18g gelatin
300ml warm water
500g cream cheese (room temp)
1 tbsp condensed milk (optional)
2 tsp vanilla extract
200g dairy whipped cream (whip till stiff peak and keep in fridge till needed)

1) Combine crushed biscuit and melted butter in a mixing bowl. With the back of a spoon or spatula, press the biscuit crumbs firmly onto the base of a 8" springform pan or cake ring. To ensure the base is even, I used a flat-bottom cup to smoothen crumbs. Keep in freezer while you prepare for the batter.
2) Mix (B) and stir to ensure gelatin is dissolved. Ensure no lumps. If there is, remove or strain away the lumps. Let it cool to room temp.
3) Beat (C) at slow speed till creamy and smooth.
4) Slowly pour gelatin mixture while beating slowly. Ensure all incorporated and now batter should be runny consistency.
5) Add whipped cream and mix with slow speed till well combined.
6) Divide batter into 6 equal portions, add colouring and mix well. Pour batter into pan, one colour after another (start with purple and end with pink). Leave it in the freezer to set for about an hour or in chiller for several hours till set.

Christmas Strawberry Shortcake

Merry Christmas to all my dear friends and readers! ♡

Here's my bake for Christmas, no log cake this year, just a simple strawberry shortcake.

Cake recipe refer to Carol.

2 eggs
60g sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice (or 1/8 tsp cream of tartar)
80g cake flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract }
1 tsp vegetable oil } not in original recipe
Some icing sugar

200ml dairy cream
20g sugar
Some strawberries

Syrup mixture:
Dissolve 12g of sugar in 20g hot water. Add 1 tsp rum when it has cool down.

To make the cake, refer to the video here.
170C for about 12-13 mins.

Whip dairy cream and sugar to soft peak. You can chill the whisk and mixing bowl in freezer before hand and place the mixing bowl on ice while whipping.

To assemble, brush syrup mixture on one side or both sides of the cake as you like, sandwich with whipping cream and cut strawberries, decorate as desired.

Do not replace dairy whipping cream with non-dairy in this cake as dairy cream will make the cake taste much better.

Churros 西班牙肉桂油条

This small batch of Churros was done in less than half an hour but they were wiped out even faster by three monsters in the house. This explains how popular they are.....crispy outside and soft inside, indeed very tasty.


1 cup water
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetables oil
Pinch of salt
1 cup (140g) plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder

Cinnamon powder

1) Mix (A) in a pot and cook till boiling. Remove from heat.
2) Add (B), mix to form a dough.
3) Set aside to cool down a bit. Meanwhile, mix cinnamon powder and sugar in a plate.
4) Place cooked dough in a piping bag which fitted with a big star tip. Heat oil, pipe dough into hot oil and fry till golden brown.
5) Coat with cinnamon sugar while it is still hot.

1) I somehow had difficulty in piping the dough so I shaped it instead and used the back of the knife to cut some lines.
2) Make 8.
