Hi Wendy,
Thanks for being so generous with your recipes.
I tried your cashew nut cookies and they were a big hit with my husband and kids.
Also tried your banana cake which has since become my favourite :)

Here's wishing  you a Happy Chinese New Year!

HI Wendy, Another thumbs- up from me. I baked this yesterday and it turned out well. I am so happy to try out your recipes so far with great success. Does the size of the pan make a difference in terms of cooking time? I noticed that somehow the cake is slightly denser at the bottom. When i added the 4th egg, the mixture started to curd up. What does this mean? Anyhow, it turned out well. Will be trying your non baked durian cheese cake today. :-)

Hi.. If I make this into a cup cake, the baking time should be much shorter right? Perhaps 20 - 25 mins? TIA
