Sometimes you have to bake a change

It has been a while since I last checked in here. My main platform for communication has been via social media, so it was absolutely remiss of me to omit to repeat the same information here. The Midnight Baker remains as a registered business entity although I am currently only baking for a smaller circle due to work commitments. Thank you for all the inquiries sent to my email and my deepest apologies for not being able to reply to each of you in time.

Candied Blood Orange & Lemon Curd Tart

“Orange” you glad it is Chap Goh Mei today? I thought it would be nice to commemorate the 15th day of the Chinese New Year with this blogpost that pays homage to the citrus. Do you have any favourite citrus recipes? Do share!


For when life hands you lemons

It goes without saying, I love lemons.

Lemons are an unambiguous lot.

Sweet. Tart. In your face. You know, kind of like the Bake Slave on a sugar bender.

When my childhood buddy gave me a glorious cookbook Guillaume: Food For Friends earlier this year, we poured over it and were floored by the redoubtable Guillaume Brahimi’s famous Lemon Tarts. And so, the seed of a future make/bake was planted that day.

Chef Brahimi’s recipe calls for a three parter: a sweet pastry base, lemon curd and candied lemon.

Well, I obviously have adherence issues, don’t I?

I had blood oranges with Greek style yoghurt earlier this week, and the peels were too pretty for the bin. Waste not, want not.

And so began a slight deviation; I decided to make them into candied peels, feeling that the sharper citrus notes and the vibrant…

Cherry Friands

Thinking of something different for your tea party or pot luck? Something you and your guests can eat in a bite, spare your nails from digging into muffin liners and avoid buttercream moustaches?

It is time to make friands, not foes!

Friands are moist dense cakes that are made with ground almonds and browned butter. I love pairing fruits with my bakes hence the cherries, which give a nice balance to the friands.

The Midnight Baker’s cherry friands are petits fours baked in mini-muffin tins. Though the friands may be small in size, they are big in flavour and are sugar-reduced.

Price: RM 37.50 for a box of 15 friands.

Hazelnut lovers, do I have the perfect biscotti for you!

Based on feedback, some of you prefer having smaller biscotti to dunk into your hot beverages. I hear you! My biscotti are still in 150 g bags but now made into smaller bites for you to savour longer.

Hints of fresh citrus from fragrant orange zest and subtle warmth from cinnamon make this hazelnut biscotti a sure winner. A bag of this delicious Hazelnut Biscotti Bites is RM 13 for 150 g – remember, my biscotti are trans fat free and dairy free (hurrah!).

Coconut Oat Cookies

Soft-baked golden deliciousness!

Soft-baked golden deliciousness!

Don’t you love delving into the historical origins of food! The delicious ANZAC biscuits were first made during World War 1 for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, hence its name. The three main stars in ANZAC biscuits are desiccated coconut, rolled oats and golden syrup. Replicating the flavour profile, I’ve made these into soft-baked coconut oat cookies, which are available on the menu now. These egg-free cookies are delicious paired with a good hot cup of coffee (or tea, if you prefer!). If, like me, you wax lyrical over a childhood favourite called Candy Kelapa (Coconut Candy), then this is the cookie for you.

Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

VeganGFBrownies|The Midnight Baker

This is your new best friend.

Hands down, this delicious chocolate brownie scores high marks for its healthy factor – it is a vegan and gluten-free brownie! When you bite into it, you wouldn’t believe that it has NO flour and NO eggs; yet remains moist, chewy and very much like old-fashioned brownies. The secret lies in the black beans and coconut oil combo that I use. You could get these square bites topped with Belgian dark chocolate chips, or almond nibs. What are you waiting for?
