10 Baking Hacks to Make Your Life a Breeze

< Back to Guides and Tips

10 Baking Hacks to Make Your Life a Breeze

Baking can be a delicate affair – especially when half a cup of butter could be the difference between a show-stopping cake and a kitchen disaster. So make your life a breeze with these 10 baking hacks carefully selected by us that’ll make you feel like the best baker in the neighbourhood!

1. Get icing sugar from regular sugar!

Time for the finishing touch of dusting icing sugar over your baked goods – but you only have regular sugar! Don’t worry, you can just use your regular sugar by putting it into a food processor and blending at high speed until they reach the consistency of powdered sugar.

Get the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor for a portable and hassle-free appliance to do just that!

2. Juicy lemons in 10 seconds!

Need to get juices out from your citrus fruits as one of the ingredients? Instead of getting cramps squeezing them with your hands, simply pop them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds to get the juices flowing!

3. It just won’t come off!

Trying to add in honey or molasses into your baking mix but it just won’t come off your bowl or spoon? Just coat them with a non-stick cooking spray first! It’ll come right off and the ingredients you measured will be super precise!

4. Cut Perfect Slices of Brownies!

Always making a crumbly mess when cutting brownies? Run your knife under hot water for several seconds, dry it, and watch how cleanly your knife cuts through them! Pop them into your fridge to keep them fresh and re-heat your brownies when needed and you’ll be getting perfect slices of all your baked goods in no-time!

5. Make Instant Buttermilk!

If you want to make soft and fluffy pancakes, you’ve got to use buttermilk! Not many of us keep buttermilk readily available in our fridge, but here’s a hack to make instant buttermilk from just regular milk and lemon juice! Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or vinegar) in a 1-cup measuring cup and fill the rest with milk. After letting it sit for 5 minutes, you’ve just got a fresh batch of buttermilk!

6. Have the hazelnuts peel itself for you!

It can be a nightmare getting the flaky skins off hazelnuts – especially when you are making some delicious homemade Nutella cream!

To make it a cinch, roast the hazelnuts in an oven until hot then place them in a damp kitchen towel and gently rub. The combination of heat and moisture will let the hazelnut peel itself for you!

7. Control the temperature of your eggs!

You are baking happily when the recipe suddenly calls for room temperature eggs – oops, guess who forgot to take out the eggs an hour beforehand? Fret not! You can regulate the temperature of your eggs back to room temperature by immersing them in a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water for 5 to 10 minutes!

8. Ripen Bananas Quickly!

Here’s a time-accelerating trick for those who want ripe bananas without the hassle of waiting for them to ripe naturally!

 Place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 300°F for about 40 minutes – you’ll get perfectly ripe bananas for you to use in your delicious banana bread and cakes!

We recommend this Jamie Oliver Non-Stick Baking Sheet that is both sturdy and reliable!

9. Get perfectly flaky biscuits and crusts!

The key secret in getting those perfectly flaky biscuits and pie crusts is making sure pieces of butter are evenly distributed inside your dough. The best way to do this is to use a cheese grater and grate the butter into the dough for easy stirring!

The Boska Stainless Steel Trio Formaggio Cheese Grater is perfect for the job!

10. IG-Worthy Cakes with a Floss!

Ever wondered how pastry chefs achieve getting those perfectly sliced cakes in their photos? It’s simple! Get unscented dental floss from any local convenience store! A taut dental floss slides through soft and doughy items with much better precision than any standard kitchen knife!

3. Condiments & Spices

Don’t forget to pump up the flavours of your BBQ with condiments, spices and sauces for that extra OOMPH! Remember, it’s the small things that make your food taste a lot better!

Aside from the standard ketchup, mustard and sauces, we find having a good Sambal Belachan mix really turns up the heat – especially for those that love spicy!

5. Table Setting

Finally, the place where the feasting takes place! For tableware, you’ll definitely need disposable wares for easy clean-up.

5 Healthy Herbs & Spices used in Local Cooking

< Back to Guides and Tips

5 Healthy Herbs & Spices used in Local Cooking

One of the reasons why local dishes boast such rich flavours is because of how we incorporate a variety of herbs and spices into our daily cooking. Bursting with flavour and taste, these herbs & spices are integrated perfectly in signature dishes like Laksa and Rendang to create a flavour of depth that makes them our local favourites!

Many of these herbs & spices have intrinsic health benefits and relieve many common ailments too, talk about killing two birds with one stone!

1. Turmeric

Turmeric is a popular spice used frequently in Southeast Asian cuisines, especially as a flavour enhancer in delicious curry dishes! Providing a rich and robust flavour, Turmeric also contains a powerful antioxidant known as curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory benefits, aiding in the prevention of cell damage in the body.

Love Chicken? Check out this Cashew Butter Chicken Masala recipe from EatingWell which contains a generous portion of turmeric and other spices  – making it both a delicious and healthy dish!

2. Laksa Leaf

Laksa Leaf, also known as Vietnamese Coriander is an exotic herb commonly found in tangy, spicy Southeast Asian dishes. Be it cooking, baking or garnishing, this herb is extensively used in our local cuisine, especially for spicy, hot and sour dishes like Assam Fish and even Tom Yam!

Not only do Laksa leaves give your dishes an additional kick, it also has a plethora of health benefits including aiding in digestion and inflammation. Its diuretic properties also make it a great way to detoxify the body, cleansing the liver of various toxic substances.

Start cooking with Laksa leaves using this healthy Laksa Fried Rice recipe from Health Hub!

3. Garlic

Everybody’s favourite ingredient in the culinary world that goes hand-in-hand with local staples like Chicken Rice and Char Kway Teow! Aside from adding intense flavours and aroma to any dish, it comes with heaps of health properties too!

Garlic helps lower blood pressure  and cholesterol, improve one’s immunity system and contains cysteine, an amino acid that boosts hair strength and elasticity, giving you thicker and healthier hair!

Heres a recipe from Watch What U Eat on a healthy Asian Chilli Garlic Tofu Stir-Fry you can cook in under 30mins!

4. Star Anise

An aptly named spice because of the star-shaped pods they reside in, star anise is often confused with anise, but the two are entirely unrelated as it carries its own distinct liquorice flavour and medicinal benefits.

Famed for its presence in the Chinese “5 spices” and Indian “Garam Masala” blends, this versatile spice is rich in powerful bioactive compounds, giving it many antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial capabilities!

We have just the recipe to fully make use of this spice in a hearty bowl of Braised Pig Trotters with Mushrooms and Chestnuts.

5. Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a fragrant herb that is commonly found as an ingredient in Asian dishes – injecting a bright citrus flavour to everything from soups to curry!

What’s more, lemongrass is also often steeped in water to be drunk as tea because of the great health benefits within the herb. It includes relief from flu, insomnia, stomach problems and even respiratory disorders!

So indulge in this Ginger Lemongrass Detox Iced Tea from Rasa Malaysia, a healthy and easy-to-make drink that is perfect for the summer.
