Gula Melaka Coconut Scones - Vegan! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I can't believe that I have been writing Bake for Happy Kids for 10 years!

Since 16 Aug 2010, I have published 966 blog posts including this one and shared hundreds recipes. Some were from cookbooks and websites. Some were created by me. All were thoroughly tried-and-tested with my honest opinions.

Throughout all these years, I have been obsessed with baking and cooking. I have a huge collections of breads, cookies, chiffon cakes, waffles, pancakes and scones recipes at here. So please feel free to browse around my blog if you are interested.

At this moment, I'm proud of my achievement but not really sure what I should be heading. Should continue this blog and keep sharing my recipes? I would love to. Yet, I also ask myself... Why am I doing this? Oh well, this is my hobby. A hobby that I like, enjoy, spend a lot of time and don't make any money. LOL!

Honestly speaking, I don't really a plan to celebrate this milestone as I'm not overly excited about it. Maybe, I just a little tired finding the purpose of continuing this blog. Or maybe, I'm just a little depressed coping withe the current Covid situation.

Nevertheless, I would to take this opportunity to share a really good scone recipe. It's a recipe that created by me and I called these gula Melaka coconut scones... Or the Southeast-Asian scones! Instead of butter, cream and milk, these scones are made with cold coconut milk. Thus, they are dairy free. Plus, they are egg-free and so they are vegan too!

The Best Soft Chewy Snickerdoodles - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I bake for many reasons...

For my blog, hobby, curiosity, stress relieving and mostly for my family.

I want to bake the best cinnamon cookies for my son. Thus, my quest for this post is to search for the BEST thin, soft and chewy snickerdoodles that will stay nice, soft and chewy indefinitely after the day of bake.

Next, I did my research and baked.

Then... Ta-dah! I found my BEST Snickerdoodles!

Our Favourite Coffee Scones - Buttery Biscuity Moist Aromatic Not-too-sweet Quick and Easy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

How I wish life can be straightforward, simple and nice.

... just like these coffee scones.

Straightforward because they are fuss-free, quick and easy to bake.

Simple because they are made with basic ingredients such as flour, sugar, butter, cream and coffee. Nothing rare or uncommon.

Nice because they are not too sweet with minimal added sugar. Yet, delicious being buttery and biscuity outside. Moist, fluffy and aromatic inside.

Isn't it amazing that something so simple can actually taste so nice and extraordinary?

The Best Crispy Gula Melaka Cookies - 香脆马六甲椰糖饼干 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

"I hate you! ...for making me fat!"

I hear this comment a lot whenever I baked something nice. Although the comment sounded kind of nasty, it doesn't really bother me. And I will usually respond to this comment with a grin and say nothing.

I know... This is how a growing but weight-conscious 11-year-old saying "I like your food" to me as I watch the the delicious food diminish rapidly.

Once again, I heard this comment when I baked these gula Melaka cookies. This time, I didn't smile and say nothing. Instead, I was like "YES!!!" with a sense of victory! I was ecstatic because I found the BEST gula Melaka cookies!
