With the rising lifestyle costs, most of us are feeling the brunt of inflation and are actively looking to reduce our expenditures. Seasoned café-hoppers who enjoy sweet treats are now turning to baking courses in Singapore to whip up their own treats! A quick Google search “sg baking class” reveals that baking can be a relatively affordable hobby, and a great way to unwind after a tough week at work (especially if you tap on your SkillsFuture credits!). For full-time homemakers, it’s a great way to pass the time and showcase your culinary skills on special occasions! These delicious homemade treats can go a long way to making someone’s day, for both the baker and those who indulge in the delicious creations.
In this article, we’ll be sharing five easy and delicious baked treats that every homemaker would love to make, right in the comfort of your own kitchen!
Remember how it took Singapore by storm with its creamy and slightly caramelized savory cheese filling encased in a buttery, flakey pastry? This delectable treat is surprisingly easy to make at home! The recipe involves a simple combination of cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and a hint of lemon zest, baked in a tart shell that can be bought ready-to-bake or made from scratch. The result is a gooey, rich balance of cheesy goodness and a delightful golden brown butter crust.
Milky sweet yet decadent, this delicious Milk Chocolate Loaf is sure to appeal to young kids and the young-at-heart! A moist and decadent treat, it’s a solid upgrade from the plain or whole meal toasts that many of us are accustomed to. Perfect for chocolate lovers of all ages, the recipe calls for a rich milk chocolate batter, made from a blend of melted chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Baked to perfection, the Milk Chocolate Loaf delights with its velvety texture and irresistible aroma. Slice it up and savor each bite with a cup of hot tea or coffee for a quick midday snack!
Surprisingly, this isn’t a common recipe among baking courses in Singapore. Lucky for you, we offer this recipe in our Hands-on Breads & Tarts Course!
A common staple among baking courses in Singapore, Butter Cookies are a classic favorite that will never go out of style with infinite possibilities for customization! These melt-in-your-mouth treats are incredibly simple to make, requiring just a few basic ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen. A conventional recipe typically includes butter, sugar, flour, and a touch of vanilla extract. Unleash your creative side by using cookie cutters to shape the dough into various designs or by adding a sprinkle of colored sugar for a festive touch. These delightful cookies are an irresistible treat that works great as a homemade gift.
Looking for a more local flair to your desserts?
Infused with the aromatic flavor of pandan and the richness of coconut cream, Pandan Coconut Cream Scones with Kaya offer a delightful twist to the traditional scone recipe. The scones are made by combining flour, sugar, baking powder, and a generous amount of pandan extract and coconut cream. Once baked to a golden brown, they are best enjoyed with a dollop of homemade kaya spread, adding a delightful local touch to this classic British treat. An ode to our British colonial past, if you will!
Are aesthetically pleasing baked goods your secret guilty pleasure? After all, the eyes (and camera) “eat” before the mouth does! These visually stunning Seashell Macarons don’t only look good, but they taste delectable too!
This dainty French confectionery is made from almond flour, powdered sugar, egg whites, and a touch of food coloring for the vibrant sea-inspired hues. The macarons are then piped into seashell shapes and baked until they develop a crisp exterior and a soft, chewy center. Fill them with your favorite ganache or buttercream for an extra burst of flavor!
Baking is a wholesome pastime that can offer both relaxation and satisfaction, once the proverbial flour “dust” settles.
There’s nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked treats wafting through your home to lift your spirits and whet your family and friends’ appetites!
