  1. Dear Rose,
    Thanks again for your generosity in putting all your recipes on the net for the good of the people, esp the cooking enthusiasts!

    If I want to make a smaller cake, can I “halve” the ingredients and also, can I just use vegetable oil instead of butter?

    May God continue to keep you in good health all the days of your life!

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

  2. Yes, you can try using corn oil. For half the recipe, you can also bake them in small muffin tins.
    I just made one pudding using Hoen Kwe flour, if its good I’ll add to the recipe list.

    Hope you enjoy baking!
    May the Lord bless you with wisdom and talents.

  8. Hello,

    I “accidentally” found your website while surfing for teochew fishball. I fell in love with you, love at first sight!

    By the way, what is the weight of 5 eggs (weighted together with shells)

    Thank you.

  9. Hi Rose,
    I found your website while looking for sugee cake recipe. May i ask which type of banana shd i use for this banana cake recipe. I tried using pisang berangan, but the texture that i got is different from those sold in the bakery. I also could not get the “black dot” that a banana cake normally has. Hope you could give me some tips. thanks.

  10. Hi Rose,

    I stumbled upon your site while looking for fresh cookie recipes for Diwali last year (ended up making most of them in your list) and that lead to trying your banana cake recipe as well. It was too wet and sweet(for some senior folks in the house) the initial 2 times I tried them. So I adjusted the flour to 230 g and reduced the sugar to 230 g and it is ever my favourite recipe. Thanks for sharing your passion with the world. God Bless.
