30min Wholemeal Cream Scones with Homemade Strawberry Conserve

Stop baking cakes for a while, I’ve been looking for new breakfast ideas as I’m bored with muffins & pancakes…
I recently have afternoon tea with scones & pies so I thought it shouldn’t be too difficult to make scones.
The most interesting recipe is 30-min scone & the recipe I used only needs 3 ingredients: whipping cream, wholemeal self-raising flour & sugar.
Scone is plain really, but when it’s freshly baked from the oven, it’s soft & tastes great with clotted cream & strawberry conserve.
Light & soft cream scones served with a cup of coffee that wakes me up in the morning :)

Crémeux aux Framboise

I baked this cake for my friend’s birthday.
I first saw the recipe from cake chef, which is a Japanese website showcasing Japanese patisserie.
It’s called Cremeux, meaning creamy & smooth.
The cake is composed of 3 layers: almond genoise, white chocolate yogurt mousse & mascarpone mousse.
I really like the mascarpone mousse & white chocolate yogurt mousse combo, but I was thinking it would be overly sweet so I added a raspberry jelly layer.

I renamed this cake ‘Crémeux aux Framboise’.
The mousse is smooth & creamy, the raspberry adds a tangy freshness.
For the decoration, I wrapped the mousse ring with bubble wrap & made the cake from upside down so that the top mascarpone mousse would pick up the pattern.
It worked out really well & I simply garnished with fresh fruits.
Happy baking!

Brownie Eggs for Easter

I spotted a Korean post about these brownies baked in egg shells a few days ago.
I couldn’t resist to bake it for Easter, it’s fun & interesting :)
The creative idea is originated from Sandra Mangas & Cupcake Project.
Both of them have amazing food blogs, full of inspirations & amazing recipes.

It was sunny & bright the next morning so I set up a table next to the window to take these shoots.
I adore the lighting & love the simple white set up.

Happy Easter!
