Finally...... Raspberry & Passionfruit Tarts

Finally submitted my thesis yesterday night, though it’s not completely over, awaiting viva in a few weeks.
I have no ideas what to do for the rest of the week apart from all those writing & editing.
My mind is still about writing thesis, need something to divert my mind & focus.
I think it’s a great time to start baking again & updating my blog.

The recipe I’m sharing now is from a while back in summer.
A request from my sister, I’d asked her what she’d like to have for desserts the day before we went picking raspberries.
Cheesecake was on the list but passionfruit & raspberry tart sounded wonderful, plus it wasn't difficult to make at all.
We’ve had tart passion framboise from Laduree, it’s amazingly delicious.
Although my sister has the cookbook, it’s not at hand so I simply googled the recipe for it & found a recipe from Bertha’s blog.
Crunchy tart crust, rich yet exotic passionfruit cream & tangy raspberries, just a wonderful combination.

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

Hello readers, I come back for another quick update!
As a little breakup from my writing up, I baked some chocolate cupcakes the other day.
It had been a long time since there was a nice smell of cakes from my kitchen & it’s just great to do a bit of baking.
So, I took some photographs & decided to have a quick update for the blog here.

This recipe uses about 300 g of chocolate, so you can tell it really is ultra rich.
As I like my chocolate cakes to be bittersweet, I reduced the sugar.
I hope you would like it, bon appétit :)

Just to say hi.... with a recipe

 Hello readers.

I’ve been away from baking & blogging for a while as I’m writing up my thesis for my Ph.D.
I'm not even halfway yet with my writing…
Writing up is such a long & boring process, sometimes I wish someone can write it up for me, which is totally impossible...
To break it from my boring writing, I thought I should update the blog & let you know that I haven’t abandoned this site.
Just that I can only focus at my thesis, it’s probably one of the most important piece of writing in my life.
I hope next time when I blog, I would already submit my thesis :)

Also a quick update of the recipe, I baked this for my niece’s 1st birthday in early February.
It’s gorgeous yet simple & easy to bake.
