For those who had known me well enough, y’all might be aware that I’m a dessert lover. I love desserts, I like to bake, and I love making different kind of desserts and experimenting on different recipes. So, as a self-taught home baker for roughly five years, one of my trusting baking partners would be Anchor.
Whenever we heard about Anchor, I’m pretty sure that everyone will think about the famous Anchor Butter. Actually, under the Anchor Brand, they have a full range of dairy products, such as Anchor Butter, Anchor Cream Cheese, Anchor Culinary Cream and also the Anchor Milk. Anchor claims that all of these products are made from fresh milk from free range cows that are fed with grass throughout the year.
As per my personal experiment and observation, and also personal preference, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these products! These products had successfully differentiated themselves in term of the quality of the products, and they completely change the game of my home bake desserts.

Some of you might have come across the 1st Anchor Say Cheese campaign in 2015 and it was more around the Japanese-inspired desserts & pastries. This year, in conjunction with the 2nd phrase of this campaign and CONNECTING WITH LOVED ONES as the theme of 2016, the new selection of desserts is more European themed and feature delicious sweet breads as well.

What’s better way to spend time with the people we love the most and sweeten the day with some delicious desserts, right? Here's the European style signature creations by Anchor.
Lady Marmalade (L), a sweet bread with an orange cream cheese filling topped with an orange candied peel which is totally edible. Personally I really hate the desserts that contain processed fruits such as durian cake, banana muffin, blueberry cheesecake etc as it kind of gross me out. However, this caramelized orange slice does give me a surprise in the mouth! Big thumb up for this!
First Love (R), a sweet bread with a brown sugar cream cheese in the center sprinkled with brown sugar for that added crunch, guaranteeing love at first bite as there is really a generous amount of cream cheese filling inside.
Cheezni (B), cream cheese sandwiched between two slices of decadent chocolate brownies and topped chopped walnuts, this is totally the best combination in the world! Feeling blue and down, grab a slice of Cheeznie and recharge your energy!
Almond Rosa (F), a soft classic almond butter sponge cake with a nutty taste, layered with cream cheese. Sometime almond might have this bitter taste and that’s mean the almond is oxidized and go rancid. Since Anchor states that their products are fresh, so the baking ingredients that they use must be fresh as well. So no worries on the bitter-tasted almond, its guarantee fresh!
Customers can now expect these exclusive Anchor’s signature creations at the selected bakeries throughout the country from now until December 2016. The participating bakeries in Miri, Sarawak will be Hot Cross Buns. These bakery partners will whip up the delightful Anchor branded desserts using the original recipes and training provided by Fonterra’s patisserie chefs, with a slight tweak to suit the unique preference of their customers.
It’s great to know that such high quality desserts can be found in the local cake house instead of those atas café. Thank to Anchor Food Professionals for always coming out these amazing ideas and putting customers at the first place.
