As we are approaching the end of yet another super long year, how about lifting your spirits with a breezy baking experience with Phoon Huat?

What I love about this kit is that they've already pre-measured almost all the ingredients for you. This means you don't need to buy the entire packet of an ingredient just to use a bit of it (less wastage!). All you need to do is add your own eggs and butter for this recipe 😉
