List of Baking Ingredients in Singapore [Names of Flours in Mandarin, Malay and Tamil]

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. This is a slightly bastardized translation of what is perhaps the most famous star-crossed lovers play in the world – Romeo & Juliet. This quote might not have a direct link to the post, but it just popped up in my head when I was thinking of how to start off this post. My point was, in a multi-racial society such as

Really Good Chocolate Multigrain Pancakes

Sometimes, I’m obsessive compulsive to the point that even I get sick of myself, literally. I usually try variations on a single recipe and different recipes relating to the same thing for days on end until I satisfy myself that the recipe is the one I want as my “to go to” recipe, or the one recipe I’m willing to replicate to eat for the immediate future.

[Thursday's Trio] Absolutely Delicious Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Finally the third instalment of Thursday’s Trio! As you might have discovered, I find it rather hard to stick to a schedule - as you might or might not have realized, I have not done my Travel Tuesdays for a long long time (the last one was about Phnom Penh in June 2011) and neither have I completed my A to Z of Australia series either.

Anyhow, work’s been pretty slow this week, so I’ve had time to think of what to bake this coming weekend. If only I had more bananas, I’d make another round of this banana cake/loaf.

[Thursday's Trio] Buckwheat Pancakes

Today I thought I’d perhaps rewind a bit and talk about how I got started with experimenting with gluten free and other non-wheat flours. (This is partly because I realized I’ve yet to post photos of these buckwheat pancakes and also because I didn’t have my camera this week to take any new photos.) As I was typing out today’s post, I also decided that I shall name this new
