Super easy recipes roundup

With my mum around, I haven’t been doing much cooking at all this past couple of weeks. My mum would definitely have some great recipes to share, so I will aim to do a special one featuring a really nice dish made by her in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, I thought to do a roundup of some of my favourite super-easy recipes I’ve shared in the past – all requiring only a handful ingredients and fool-proof cooking processes…

Homemade microwave kaya (coconut jam)
Made with only four ingredients and whipped up using a microwave oven.
Tastes awesome too when it’s freshly made!

One-minute chocolate mug-cake
Only needs three ingredients and also just zapped in the microwave in a minute.
An instant chocolate cake fix anytime you need it.

One ingredient ice cream
Made with just ONE ingredient with the aid of a food processor
No garbage in it – this is the only ‘ice cream’ my son has tasted and he loves itDSC00777

These recipes are too simple to mess up that you absolutely have to try them.
Do share them with me if you do – I’d love to see how they turn out for you.

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. i loveeeee kaya, will try the recipe!!

    1. Yes! This one is a must try. No need to buy kaya anymore after you've tried this.

  2. Oh the ice cream! I must try it.
    We must freeze the banana first?

    1. Yes... slice it up before freezing - easier than trying to cut a frozen banana... then into the food processor, start whizzing, and continue to have faith until the magic happens.

  3. I love these fast recipes!
    I would liek to try kaya coz I hadn't got the microwave oven... heh...
    I did try mugcake but I steam them.

    I've heard of the banana ice cream but had yet to try. Will do some day.

    1. Haven't tried steaming a mug cake before... how did it turn out?
      I guess for the kaya, you can always cook the traditional way.
      And yes, the banana ice cream is really yummy for something so simple... I definitely recommend it!

  4. Apologies for this very late visit to you post. I loved these recipes. That cake looks much better than the 5 minute one I have seen before. I will be trying it very soon.

    1. Oh not a problem at all Lisa. It was enough just being able to link up and check out your recipes and other ones who linked up as well.
