Red Velvet Cake [ Egg-free, Whole  Wheat And No Artificial Colour]

Red Velvet Cake [ Egg-free, Whole Wheat And No Artificial Colour]

Kyu Ki Baby Ko BEET Pasand Hai !! Sounds cheesy I know but I somehow couldn’t stop myself from writing that. This cake got me super excited. The perfect colour, the right balance of sweet and tart, oh the crumb! To top it all an egg free, whole wheat version without any artificial colour. A couple of day’s back I happened to attend a meet, which focused on healthy baking. While chatting about colour doused red velvet cakes, I couldn’t help noticing the expression of a lady who absolutely loves red velvet cakes. This one is for you Madhuri. Here’s…

Filter Kaapi Cake

Filter Kaapi Cake

If there is one thing you shouldn’t miss when you visit a ‘tambram’ household, it is our piping hot filter kaapi. There is something special about sipping filter coffee, early in the morning while listening to the suprabhatam in M.S. Subbulakshmi’s voice. I always loved it when my mum woke me up with a steaming hot tumbler of frothy filter coffee. The aroma of freshly brewed decoction is something I always look forward to when I visit my parents home. This morning while sipping my cuppa, I realized I haven’t made a coffee cake for way too long! So, my…

Champorado/ Tsampurado Tart

Champorado/ Tsampurado Tart

Chocolate and Rice sounds like a very unusual combination doesn’t it? When I heard about the traditional Filipino ‘champorado’ or tsampurado [chocolate rice pudding], I was really intrigued. The sticky chocolaty rice, sweetened with milk and sugar feels a lot like a rich chocolaty kheer. Recently I received a book called ‘ India On A Platter’ by Saransh Goila, having come across the chocolate kheer recipe in it made me even more optimistic that this would work. I decided to serve this in the form of a tart with a buttery, flaky pie crust to add to the crunch and…

Barley Brownies

Barley Brownies

One of my baking buddies has been creating some amazing bakes with barley flour. Experimenting with alternative flours in cakes and bakes can be a real eye opener. When it comes to cakes most people seem to believe that using white flour, refined sugar, butter and eggs is the only way to go about it. A year back I thought on the same lines. But then Ovenderful happened and this amazing ‘Healthy Baking’ community has made me believe that nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, is impossible when it comes to baking. Last night I decided on giving barley flour a go. We…

Irish Chocolate Potato Cake – Eggless and Whole Wheat Version

Irish Chocolate Potato Cake – Eggless and Whole Wheat Version

I honestly never imagined potatoes in a cake until I came across a pic of a potato based cake last evening. I did a bit of research on the net and came across the Irish Chocolate Potato Cake that looked absolutely divine. I simply had to try it and in my way. I think the picture above says it all. The texture is absolutely brilliant, with loads of air pockets that gives the cake a spongy light feel. Yet it has a richness that all chocolate cakes must have. Moist and absolutely mouth watering. And I bet no one would…

I love simple, no frill home-baked cakes – Warm and fresh out of the oven, just like how mum made them.
