Upside-down Pineapple Cake

  Term 3 in William Angliss ✅                    9 months in Melbourne ✅                       I sometimes wonder where time goes. Before I know it, I’ll be a qualified pastry chef👩‍🍳 Seems more scary than exciting at times […]

Spiced Florentines

Say the word ‘CHOCOLATE’ and I feel I’m in heaven. I don’t think there’s any other ingredient in my kitchen that I enjoy working with more. It’s the only thing that helps me destress. When I’m sad, angry or disturbed, I sometimes open the cupboard and munch on it. Don’t you love it too? If […]

Rum & Raisin Cruffins

  Growing up in a country that faces so much poverty, my mother would tell me that I couldn’t leave the table without finishing every morsel of food on my plate. She would narrate that story I’m sure most of you’ll have heard of how some children don’t even get one proper meal a day. […]

Dairy-free Whole Wheat Orange Cake

Living a dairy free life, especially for a dessertholic is a complete nightmare. It becomes very tough when you’re meeting friends at cafes or invited to parties because you’re not sure what ingredients go into those cakes and other sweet treats. Baking without butter and milk is not easy. You end up with such a […]

Chocolate 101 + Almond Rocks

This time, last year, I made a very important decision. The kind that I know is going to change my life forever. It was hard at first because I come from a different background (being media) and I was scared whether I was doing the right thing, but the minute I received my offer letter […]

Vanilla Pound Cake

When you’re thinking cake, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Cheesecake….Mousse….cakes loaded with frosting. Those are cakes which give us a sugar high. They’re gorgeous to look at and taste just as good to eat but nothing beats the humble pound cake for me.   It’s one of the first cake recipes I […]

Meringue 101 + Lemon Pavlova

It’s been a rough couple of days. I just lost someone really special to me. She played such a big role in my culinary life so it hasn’t been easy at all to get back to the kitchen. But they say, life goes on and my Nana has always been so supportive of everything I […]

No-Bake Ferrero Rocher Teacake

Four years ago, I moved to a place which was quite unfamiliar to me. Being a person attached to home, it wasn’t the easiest move. It took me several months to get used to everything. Weather, travel, making new friends and most importantly food. I tried surviving on a dubba service for exactly a month […]

Banana Jaggery Loaf

First things first. I’ve just turned 22. I’ve published my first tiny cookbook. It’s something I’ve been wanting to write for quite sometime now.  2 months of research and recipe testing, all worth it in the end. It was so much fun working with the team at Better Butter and love how they encourage young […]

Fig Coffee Crumble Muffins

  I’ve never been too fond of coffee. Always been a milk baby. Even during exams, when I had to stay up late, while all my other friends were drinking mugs of caffeine, I would pop chocolates in my mouth. But as I grew older, I realized that I’ve got to start expanding my taste […]
