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…

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…

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…

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…

Cinnamon, Peach Crumble Cake

What can I say? I was getting images of this cake in my mind for a long time and finally went ahead and did it. The peaches and cinnamon in a soft cake with the lovely nutty crunchy crumbly topping………………….. My indulgence.  Came out well. Very well. Try it. You can have it with a light vanilla custard, or ice-cream, or just…

Airy Sponge Cake With Lemon Curd

  It was my son’s birthday and of course I had to bake him the cake. I’ve been making his birthday cakes every year for the past seven years, barring last year, when the monkey decided he wanted an `outside’ cake with a fancy design. Well, this year he was happy to get back to my humble creations. One of the most popular cakes…

Coconut Orange Tea Cake With Citrus Glaze

  Wow, my first post on my new blog. In all the career options I considered growing up - and there were many - being a chef was never one of them. For the longest time I thought nothing of my cooking and on many an occasion I’ve needed someone to rescue more than one dish in a single meal, so imagine…
