Rum Sugee Cupcakes

I have always wanted t bake a Sugee Cake but I always failed to do so... Reason being that my sugee flour would be expired by the time I decided to bake one, or not, if I wanted to bake one, I do not have any sugee flour...


To my surprise, this Sugee Cupcakes were a delish and they were so soft and fluffy!!!


The texture was utterly cottony soft, the girls and myself loved it very much. But you might find a little coarse bit texture of the sugee (semolina), otherwise, everything about this Sugee Cupcakes were fantastic!


So next one will be Sugee Cookies, love the crunchiness of the Sugee Cookies I used to buy from the Indian shops..... 

Keep track if you are keen :)

▪ Danish Butter Cookies ▪

I like my danish cookies with sugar..

So did my hubby... 
Because his first question was when he saw this cookies, "Where are the ones with the sugar???"



These ain't exactly the danish butter cookies we would get from the usual tins we buy from the shop but they were as great...

Not only were the ingredients simplified, the cookie batter was easily piped out too. And little Mimi was trying to pipe out. She was having fun doing so.


So even though these Danish Butter Cookies ain't similar to the usual ones, you can bet that they were definitely better being home baked.

And Mimi couldn't help herself with these cookies once they were cooled.

▪ Tomato Pizza Bread ▪

It has been a long long time since I had tried to make a pizza dough from scratch.

Ever since I found the EASIEST way to make pizzas for my girls, using the Mission Wraps as base, they had loved such pizzas instead of the regular bread pizzas. They very much preferred the thin & crispy layer of the mission wrap, plus the extra servings of ham & cheese toppings.


For this "from the scratch" pizza dough and the looks of the pizza toppings, only Hubby & myself enjoyed it.

The 2 eldest girls had one each while Mimi refused to eat them. She wanted the "crispy" pizza with lots of ham...

Oh well... zzz...


The pizza bread texture was great, + the ketchup & mayonnaise drizzle, + the Japanese dried cuttlefish slices... It was a sinful treat but both of us enjoyed these mini 4-inch pizzas.

☆Baked Mini Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts☆

My kids loved their Mini Chocolate Donuts, very very much...!

Reason being that they were able to decorate their own donuts, coated with chocolate and decorated with all their favorite sprinkles and toppings... Would you too???


This is my best baked donut recipe, I would highly think so and recommended.

These donuts had a cake-like texture and it remained soft even on the 3rd day.


But today, these mini donuts were a little different....

They contained pumpkin... something new and the kids were unaware of it...




So when I asked them to take a bite on their delicious donuts, they were shocked to hear the word, "Pumpkin"

But not too worry, these mini donuts contained very little amount of pumpkin, and yet gave these donuts a very pretty yellow color...

The kids loved and enjoyed their donuts as usual, 8 mini donuts for each of them.
