Posts from the ‘Baking’ Category


Hello! Its been a long time, but I’ve moved to a new blog domain as I wanted to start fresh, I haven’t been baking new things since the last time so I needed a breather.
Anyway, here is my new blog >

Feel free to follow, its gonna be a more all rounder blog instead of just baking! Hope to see you all 🙂


Bernie makes Chocolate Crinkles

Finally! I’ve officially finished the last of my university assignments forever, though my graduation won’t take place till March 2010!! But I’m excited about looking forward to my working life, and the best part is not worrying about studying for exams (but I’ve been mulling over my last ever exams coming in the next two week!! /gasp)!

Edit: I’ve decided to revert back to my old name as it was tedious to let my friends know that I’ve changed my blog. Apologies to EVERYONE who have been changing their bookmarks and links (seriously ;A;)!!!!

Anyway to celebrate all of that, I made Chocolate Crinkles.

Bernie makes The Wildwood Brownies!

Made these brownies over the weekend, they are not wild, and they are definitely not made in the woods! Frankly, I don’t even know why they were named that, but I baked them after my last assignment on Monday and then got lazy to type a post on it till now. Heck, its exam period now and I’m writing/editing this post! =/

Bernie makes Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake!

Semester 1 of my Final Year has been hectic, so many MANY assignments to do and with only 3 weeks left to the end of semester! I don’t even know why there is a proportional increase to the year you are studying and the amount of assignments you have to do? Dang University and their excessive need for assignments!

Bernie makes Pineapple Tarts!

Update: I posted the aluminium presser picture in the Kuih Lapis post. Nothing big really!

So this is the continuation of the CNY post from… 2 weeks ago? Pineapple tarts with rather sour store bought pineapple jam. I’ve made open faced crispy pineapple tarts before (and eaten tons while visiting people) but the covered ones made with a soft crumbly pastry is best.

Pineapple Tarts 01

I made two batches using two different recipes, one from a newspaper cut-out from the Straits Times (Singapore) and the other from a post by Fresh from the Oven. The newspaper cut version in my opinion was too soft, and they kept crumbling and sticking to my fingers each time I needed to transfer them to containers.

Bernie makes Kuih Lapis!

Kuih Lapis, a small asian cake cooked layer upon layer until golden brown is a favourite among my family members during Chinese New Year. Since I wasn’t around for last year’s celebrations, I went on a baking spree this year to make up for my absence, and Kuih Lapis was on the list~

Kuih Lapis 01

I’ve seen my mother make Kuih Lapis before, but it was a long long time ago. She didn’t like the tediousness of the cake as she had to prepare other dishes as well and that cake took up a lot of her time. Since I ‘had’ the free time (or whatever time I had after cleaning the house before CNY), I decided to give it a go, and the recipe didn’t look too daunting either~

Bernie makes Butter Cake!

So, my exams have come and gone, so what’s a girl to do with holidays in her mind right now??

Bake(!!), make ice-cream, watch game-plays of survivor horror games on Youtube and go out on merry outings with her friends!

Buttercake 03

With my dad visiting us for a week, I decided to look for a good butter cake recipe (also called yellow cake I believe) without 10 eggs and heap loads of butter and sugar. I finally found one through tastespotting that only consisted of 2 eggs with much less butter and sugar.
