Lemon Blueberry Butter Cake

Someone at home is complaining that I hardly bake anything for him anymore. Poor guy I actually do bake but mostly for sale. I hardly bake anything for our own consumptions. My take on this is I don’t bake I don’t eat as this way I can control myself. Anyway, I gave in and bake this blueberry cake when Zue came for visit few weeks ago. We also can have it for tea and breakfast. Blueberry is in season now so I bought quite a bit of it for freezing and used some in our juice and baking.

Chee Cheong Fun/Steamed Rice Rolls

One breakfast that I miss a lot from home is Chee Cheong Fun. Oh we can readymade CCF from the Asian supermarket but taste and texture is somehow not right. I like the one served at the dim sum place but it came with fillings which I like but sometimes I like it just plain and serve it with some sweet sauce.

I’ve tried making it before but not too happy with the results. So after tweaking and trying it out a few times I think I almost got it right. It is very close to the results that I wanted. It has a much softer, thinner, smoother and right texture. I also added a bit of spring onions to it for some color and flavor.

Almond Cinnamon Stick Cookies

I love the smell of cinnamon in baked pies and cookies and I don’t think I use it enough in my baking. So I decided to add some cinnamon to these cookies. This cookie dough a more pastry like rather than cookie as I wanted a sturdier cookie. It actually turns out pretty well, they were crunchy, not overly sweet and it goes really with a cup of tea or coffee. Do try it out.

Blueberry Sweet Rolls with Mascarpone Lemon Glaze

I’ve been slacking a lot in updating my blog lately. I hope there are still people dropping by my blog. A lot of things happened for the past 2-3 months and it kind of took priority of my time. I too cut down a lot on my baking and cooking so hopefully I can get my blogging mojo back and continue to share my recipes here regularly. Anyway, I baked these rolls a few months ago and finally get to sit down to type out the recipe today.

I still have a lot of frozen blueberry in my freezer so I am trying to finish them up so I can get some fresh ones during this summer so decided to use some to make some rolls. These decadent buns turns out soft, fluffy, bursting with juicy blueberries and covered in sweet mascarpone lemon glaze. It was so great to have it for breakfast with a cup of coffee.
