Fudgy, Gooey Dark Chocolate Brownies

  In my quest to make a super fantastic brownie, I must have made at least eight batches, averaging two a week in the last two months. Do you know how many permutation-combinations there are in one simple dish with just seven ingredients? Tweaking any ingredient will give you a different result. Mixing ingredients in a certain way will give you a…

Apple and Pear Crumble

What can one say about apple crumble? It’s one of the most easy, frequently made sweet treats and will most likely have been a part of the dessert menu in almost every second restaurant you would have eaten at. It’s certainly a part of every buffet in a five-star hotel. Made well, it’s delicious and hits all the right spots. However, it…

Rustic Banana Walnut Cake (Eggless)

This is a cake I've been making for many many years now and it never fails to get polished off in a day. It’s definitely not a perfect looking cake inside but has a rustic, homemade appearance with the baking soda and yoghurt combination making the edges and corners of the cake a slightly chewy darker brown. Thats actually the most delicious…

Deliciously Fluffy Double Chocolate Cake

Coming up with the recipe for this lovely chocolate cake was so enjoyable especially as all the variations I tried out came out brilliantly! The Universe was being kind to me this time, after all the culinary disasters I’ve had in the past few months. I tried three different proportions, all of which worked, and even managed to get a delicious accidental…

Coconut Delight Cake (Eggless)

This cake is a tribute to my Indian heritage and is inspired by my love for coconut and jaggery combinations in many Indian sweetmeats made for certain festivals. One item called Modak, a rice flour dumpling stuffed with coconut and jaggery is a particular favourite and every time a friend’s mother-in-law makes it, she’s been given strict instructions to make an extra…

Double Apple Pie With a Twist

This is a healthier version of the regular apple pie because it uses jaggery powder instead of sugar and you wont even know the difference. It came about after my younger child was laid up with a terrible bout of allergy related respiratory infections and the poor baby has not been allowed to eat any candy or desserts as sugar makes a…

Very Berry Strawberry Cake

January and February are super high calorific months in my household. It’s birthday season for four fifths of my family, and so far I’ve already baked four cakes in less than a month. Everyone has a different request and I try to oblige them all. I’ve baked a chocolate cake, a tutti frutti cake, a strawberry vanilla cake and this full on…

Delicious Eggless Tutti Frutti Cake

I’ve been on a baking frenzy the last week. Most of it has been experimental, tinkering with ratios and ingredients to see if I can come up with the perfect cake. Managed to get a pretty good version of the Vanilla Butter Cake in the last post and then decided to work on an eggless version of it. I’ve been making eggless…

Moist Vanilla, Butter Cake

How to make that perfect vanilla cake that does not have too much butter or sugar or all the things that are harmful for you and still get it to rise well, fluff up and taste awesome? Err, tough job (and healthy cake is kind of an oxymoron) but it is a work in progress till I personally feel satisfied that I’ve…

Sinfully Delicious Plum Pie

Summer fruits in North India are the best! You get the most amazing cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, mangoes, melons, watermelons, litchis and the like and it’s a glorious feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. After having our fill of the fruits I thought to make full use of them and create some desserts to further showcase their awesomeness. I’ve…
