Baking for Dummies - Top 10 Baking Tips

Hey aspiring home bakers, yes you! I mean who doesn't want the magical skill to whip out some aromatic muffins or fluffy cheesecakes out of their very own kitchen for a fraction of the retail price? Be it for self-consumption, sharing the love, or just simply to garner likes on your Instagram (and of course, eat it afterwards), here are some baking tips for you. My friends and some of you have asked me some questions about tips and tricks on baking, and I have compiled them right here - ALL IN THIS POST (so ffs, please stop asking. Just kidding, I love you guys.)

Okay, mai gan jiong (hold your horses), some disclaimers first: I do not claim that I am a professional baker, but just an average dude who spends most of his time in the kitchen other than paktor-ing (dating). I first baked about God knows when, perhaps 10 years ago, and failed terribly in my coconut macaroons. I stopped for quite a while but am back in action since last year. With my experience garnered in this period, I present to you, the first of many (or maybe just one): Baking for dummies.

Recipe: The Most Fluffy Cheesecake Ever

Don't you just adore cheesecakes that wiggle and jiggle like a pair of uh, Jigglypuffs! Okay, I am not talking about New York style cheesecakes, which are much denser and cheesier than their Japanese counterpart. My mother loves cheesecake, but she dislikes cheese - oh, the irony. After experimenting with several recipes, I finally found one that delivers the fluffiest and moist cheesecake. Now you can enjoy homemade cheesecake (and the fun) at a fraction of the price you pay in bakeries!

The Bravery Cafe @ Horne Road, Singapore

The Bravery Cafe - it has been a while since I been on a cafe-hopping trip, and my recent expedition has brought me to this dainty cafe located at Horne Road. If you have no idea where is that, it is totally walkable (3-4 minute) from Lavender MRT station. When you're strolling along Horne Road, do keep a lookout for an exterior of red and yellow acrylic wall - not really glamourous just like its industrial worn-out interior - but it provides a good environment for a weekend chill out.
