Was craving for madeleines and chance upon LeGem Patisserie. Sometimes I think Instagram can read my mind (haha).
LeGem Patisserie freshly baked modern madeleines comes with an assortment of unique flavours.
Chocolate hazelnut ~ glazed with a layer of chocolate, sprinkled with a generous serving of nuts and filled with whole nuts too!
Black Sesame ~ aromatic and had a deep nutty flavour.
Fig with Cheese ~ savoury and sweet a perfect match.
Triple Chocolate ~ has an intense chocolate flavour but not too sweet.
Kaya with coconut ~ uniquely Singaporean style topped with desiccated coconut.
Matcha With yuzu ~ refreshing twist of zesty citrus yuzu and an earthy kick of matcha goes very well with a cuppa sencha green tea.
Strawberry with ruby chocolate ~ a tension of fresh berry fruitiness and luscious smoothness like yoghurt.
Lemon ~ a decidedly tangy note but not too sour.
Earl Grey ~ wonderful in smell and delicious in taste.
The dear little cakes are tenderly moist, soft and spongy and definitely does not have the acrid after taste of baking powder.
I can’t decide which is my favourite cause all are so yummy! Melts in your mouth…makes you going back for more and I sure did (this is my second purchase before I wrote this). I highly recommend you to try! LeGem Patisserie madeleines are not only scrumptious but also a feast to the eyes!
To me what makes LeGem Patisserie stands out is that she takes the effort to pen a note which adds a personal touch.
Today I want to share about my new found find – Mar_velicious Patisseries a home bakery founded by two best friends Jet and Amirah with whom I got acquainted by chance.
My first encounter was their brownies and its simply love at first bite! The texture was perfect- moist and yet not too soft, chocolate melts running on the sides but wasn’t overly sweet best paired with a scoop of rum & raisin ice cream making it simply divine.
Their sea salt chocolate chip cookies are equally yummy – sweet and savory at the same time. Highly addictive I must say, can’t just stop at just one you will want more. Their peppermint chocolate chip cookies are refreshing – don’t worry the peppermint isn’t overpowering.
oh guess what the do Ondeh-Ondeh cake too!! I was so over the moon when I found out they make that. The smell of pandan is so fragrant, texture of the sponge is dense and moist, drizzles of gula melaka seals the deal.

Mar_velicious Patisseries – one bite is all it takes
What I really appreciate most about Mar_velicious Patisseries is having the option to customize the sweetness of the bakes to my preference. Don’t get me wrong I have a sweet tooth and desserts are important to me a meal is never complete without desserts. But perhaps with age I prefer low sugar bakes.
There are so many reasons to chose home bakeries over commercial ones – personalized, creative, the use of quality ingredients and most importantly its baked with passion and love.
