The Baking Jin
The Baking Jin was created from a desire to bring the flavours and textures of beautifully light South East Asian cakes that I used to eat in Malaysia, to here in the UK, for everyone to enjoy. Baking is a passion for me, influenced undoubtedly by my Mum, who baked from our family home in Borneo, Malaysia, filling the house with the smell of cakes, cookies and bread. After taking up a professional career as an engineer in the UK, the need to bake returned and I embarked on a challenge which resulted in winning the Cambridge Bake off 2015.
Now fully addicted to baking, The Baking Jin is dedicated to creating wonderfully light chiffon sponges with oriental and fusion inspired flavours. I was a coder by day and baker by night which brought out the scientist, and the creative in me. Both of which are applied to my baking. In 2020, the day job had to go, and I am now baking full time. I put in a lot of work to make my cake to perfection - light, fluffy, flavoursome, not too sweet. But really, I just want you to be as satisfied as I am when tasting my cakes.

Something a little different
Chiffon cake, made with eggs, sugar, flour, water and vegetable oil but no butter, is an obsession throughout South-east Asia. In Japan there are bakeries that only bake chiffon cakes. Schoolchildren in China eat it as a snack. In the Philippines the ability to turn out airy chiffon is the test of a good home cook. People in Malaysia have chiffon cake around the clock, for breakfast seem to be very common! Yet not many in UK know about it, if you have not tasted chiffon cake, why not give it a try, The Baking Jin can bake for you!
