The pearl milk tea dessert craze has hit Asia hard, with crazy pearl studded desserts popping up all over my Instagram feed. I’m talking Pearl milk tea cakes, pancakes, crepes…. just absolutely anything you could think of really!
And with the rising popularity of milk teas (just look at all the newly opened drink joints!) I’m sure it’ll come to Sydney some time. But rather than waiting around for some café to get onto it, I thought I’d whip up a batch of these pancakes myself for brunch.
It’s been a while since I’ve actually cooked anything from a recipe in print. There’s just too much recipe inspiration online!
But when I came across this Vegan White Chocolate and Butter Bean Muffins with Raspberry and Chia Jam recipe in The Chia Co’s recipe booklet, and had the ingredients and curiosity to try out a vegan muffin recipe, this was the result.
It’s been a while since I’ve been super excited about a cake recipe.
Sure, I’ve come across many good recipes. There’s a handful of my go-to’s, like my trusty chocolate cake which I almost always use for cake decorating. Come to think of it I’ve actually never posted the recipe up on this blog….
But I digress.
My point is I haven’t really raved on about a cake for a long time. Infact the last time I remember doing so was when I discovered my sour cream pound cake recipe. Which to this day is still one of my favourites I don’t make it often enough. Check it out if you haven’t. You’ll love it!
But today, I’m sharing a recipe that has absolutely stolen the crown of my all time favourite cake! I’m not even a person who chooses favourites so this is kind of a big deal. It’s so good I’ve literally lost count of how many times I’ve made it. And it’s only been three months since I discovered it.
I know I said that I’d be posting some more comfort food recipes, but the sudden change of weather meant I had to change my plans. Luckily I had this Honey Soy Chicken Noodles Salad bookmarked since the beginning of winter!
I’m not kidding either- am I the only one who always bookmarks dishes when they’re wayyy out of season?
Spring is finally here (yay!). Whilst I do have some fantastic recipes saved for when the weather warms up, the cold rainy weather over the past week has meant there’s still time to indulge in comfort food for a little while longer!
Which is just as well as I haven’t really been posting many recipes lately. Sorry guys, recipes are just so time consuming to type up! But I’ll try to sneak in a couple more winter recipes before Spring truly arrives, starting with one my favourite recipes this winter.
Thai Pumpkin Soup.
