Hokkaido Milk Bread is a Japanese-style bread that's incredibly soft and fluffy, subtly sweet and beautifully-buttery. This pull-apart bread is great for making sandwiches, or just enjoying by itself with a nice warm cup of green tea.
Chinese egg tarts are popular treats found all over Chinatown, particularly in tea houses as a dim sum dish. Egg tarts are prominent in Guangzhou's food scene, and scholars call it the "quintessential symbol of the fusion between Cantonese and Western cultures."
Brown sugar rice cakes are a classic: crunchy on the outside, chewy on the outside, they look almost like potato fries. But instead of ketchup, they're covered in an osmanthus flower-infused honey syrup, that you (double) dip each bite into.
Ma lai gao (马拉糕) is a popular dim sum dessert, alongside the ever-popular salted-egg yolk custard bao. It's essentially a sponge cake with a beautiful caramel color due to the brown sugar, and because it's steamed, ma lai gao is a fluffy, soft and gorgeous cake (it will literally spring back if you push down on it!).
Here's an extremely simple yet delicious lil' recipe for Amber Walnuts to add a bit of spice and edge to your life! 🙂
My mom loves to bake, and she's frequently sending me photos of her latest creations as I stay in my dorm eating ramen and mac & cheese. *cries* Anyways, this time, she made Zebra Stripe Japanese Cotton Cheesecake, which looks amazingly good, so I thought I'd share it with y'all too!
As with everyone else this quarantine, I have definitely on a baking rampage this weekend (more like, every weekend): after buying some on-sale cookie butter, I figured I'd try one of the many recipes that involved cookie butter. The easiest? These cookie butter brown sugar cookies!
Although the brunt of summer has passed us, it’s always fun to have an indoor activity to take me away from the extreme Texas heat (that lasts until mid-December...). One of my favorite things to do is to explore new and easy recipes for healthy snacks that I can snack on the rest of the day or after a sweaty workout -- and not feel guilty!
This recipe is one of my favorites: it's my attempt to replicate the famous Auntie Anne's softest cinnamon sugar pretzels. It's a pretty simple recipe too -- and hopefully will satisfy your cinnamon sugar pretzel needs.
Blueberry scones are the pinnacle of afternoon dessert -- soft, crumbly, buttery and just the right amount of sweet. They're my favorite to grab at coffee or tea shops, and even better: they're so simple to make yourself at home! This fun little recipe is perfect for making eight large scones for a quick breakfast item to go alongside your coffee, or 16 smaller scones to stave off that mid-day hunger.
