I Challenged My Pastry Skills with Reynold Poernomo’s “The Dessert Game” This Hari Raya

Since I had some free time during this Ramadan, I decided to challenge myself by baking brownies inspired by Reynold Poernomo’s book – The Dessert Game


In the book, Poernomo classifies the recipes into three levels – easy to hard. In it you will be able to find recipes that are easy to make such as butter cakes and even intricate desserts such as layered cakes garnished with fresh flowers. The book is fascinating as he has included tips on substitutions of ingredients used for the recipes. For example, for dark chocolate he advised that it should be paired with citrus fruits for a divine flavour combination. 


The first recipe I decided to bake was brownies as I have most of the ingredients on hand. You will need salt, brown sugar, baking soda, butter, chopped nuts, dark chocolate chips, cocoa powder, all-purpose flour and eggs. 


We would also like to take this opportunity to wish our Muslim readers Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! May you enjoy this festival with your friends and family!
