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…


Lightening-Quick Nutella Crunch Pudding

I came up with this quick and easy dessert after wracking my brains about what my 7-year old could make for a small cooking competition. As it was a cold-cooking competition, where there were no hobs or electrical appliances allowed, anything other than assembling was not possible. Since the kid has not been introduced to any types of cooking or cutting and…


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…


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…


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…


Coconut Panacotta With Fresh Mango

What dessert can one make for Sunday lunch with friends on a hot summer day? Anything actually, but since it’s mango season and sweltering outside, I thought I’d go with something light, cooling and seasonal, so I went with a coconut panacotta, which is essentially a creamy jelly. After a heavy meal of cheesy quiche and mutton lasagna, the lightness of the…


Mint Chocolate Mousse with Baileys Irish Cream

  Whenever I’ve made chocolate mousse for guests at a dinner party, there've been rave reviews. My family loves it, especially my husband. The recipe is so simple and one can use any liquor of their choice here, rum, kahlua, flavoured brandys. The texture of the mousse is smooth and melt-in-the-mouth and the flavour decadent. My introduction to this came from Irish T.V.…
