Poh Ling Yeow reveals delicious two-ingredient pastry recipe

With all of us spending time at home more than ever before, many have been turning to baking to keep themselves entertained.

But if you’re wary of making something from scratch, then this easy recipe from MasterChef star Poh Ling Yeow is definitely for you.

The celebrity chef shared on Instagram her recipe for palmiers from her book Poh Bakes, revealing it was “one of my fave things to make”.

Surprisingly, the classic recipe only requires two ingredients – caster sugar and puff pastry – which Poh said you can either purchase ready-made from the supermarket or make yourself at home.

Poh’s method, which takes under an hour to make, was a hit with her followers on Instagram who praised the straightforward method.

“Palmiers are so nostalgic for me. My sis and I used to get to share one after ballet class each week. Huge treat for us,” one person wrote.

“Oh my god @pohlingyeow this is one of my fave recipes from your book,” another commented. “So satisfying and pretty, yet so simple.”

“Looks delicious! Hope you’re not sick of hearing that,” another fan wrote.

Poh rose to fame while competing on the first season of MasterChef in 2009, where she came runner-up to Julie Goodwin.
