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

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…

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.

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

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…

Baked Kodubale

Kodubale is a famous spicy crisp deep fried snack from Karnataka. My love for baking and Indian flavours, made me try this baked version. Two of the main ingredients in the traditional kodubale are rice flour and gram flour. I decided to use beaten rice and roasted bengal gram to replace the same. B

Whole Wheat Chocofills

Close your eyes and imagine biting into an ordinary looking cookie and finding your mouth filled with fudgy chocolate. Heavenly isn’t it?? My 8 year old had been requesting for a ‘dark fantasy’ kind of cookie and this is what i came up with.  You might sometimes wonder what to do with the last bit o
