Fig and hazelnut cake

March 18, 2016

1

I know figs must be back in season because I recently received about 2 dozen of them in my parent’s latest care package. This coupled with the leftover hazelnuts from the previous post, led to this cake. I’d paired figs with hazelnuts before so I was pretty confident the combination would work in a cake form. Then I came across […]

Toblerone cheesecake

I’m actually not a huge fan of cheesecakes. So it’s a little ironic that I often find myself making cheesecake, purely because some of my nearest and dearest happen to love it.

It’s timed well given a recent Masterchef pressure test with Dan Hong’s pandan chiffon cake served with coconut sago and black sesame icecream. Also, I’d been waiting for an opportunity to try a recipe from my favourite cupcake blogger – Chockylit for […]
