Coffee Blondies

  I pampered and indulged myself in these blondies last week. This is criminal to bake such blondies and then overindulge. Usually, I am careful about the calories I consume, but these coffee blondies gave me reasons to ditch that conscious mind. These gooey, almondy, coffee flavoured blondies were so delicious that I wasn’t able to hold back the temptation. I must be very honest with you, if you are looking forward to some celebration or you are in that […]

Healthy Gluten-free Brownies

Healthy Gluten-free Brownies When I started baking long ago, I went through a series of trials and experiments in my mom’s kitchen. I started with very basic cakes and cookies and it took me long to nail the recipes, that would give me consistent results. Baking as a subject needs a lot of patience and accuracy. One needs to be familiar with the oven temperature and should know, how the ingredients behave with each other. How one ingredient can overpower […]

Classic Banana Bread

How we have a very silent presence of water and air in our lives and we never acknowledge them, never bother to give them some appreciative words. A classic recipe of banana bread has a similar kind of presence in a bakers life. It never seems to get old, and never goes away and we really never acknowledge it. I love baking a loaf of banana bread, love to have a slice with my tea or coffee. It always has […]

Healthy Oat Muffins - 1

Healthy Oat Muffins

Healthy + Tasty baking is considered as a misconception by many. I also fall into that pit of the doubt when I buy commercial baked goods and they are labelled as #healthy. Our psyche makes us eat more when we read the word healthy. The whole food market today is evolving around these keywords. The word Healthy on a packet of cookies can be true, but the number of calories each cookie contains is often not mentioned prominently on the […]

Strawberry Oat Crumb Top Muffins

Strawberry Oat Crumb Top Muffins

Muffin is best when had with a hot black coffee. When it’s #metime. I prefer muffins with a ballooned top, crusty heads and soft moist inside. Quite honestly, this is the muffin, I am having after quite a long time. And what a satisfaction, absolute soul-fuel.  When it comes to strawberries, strawberry yoghurt is kind of most wanted dessert at home. Though, I am equally in favour of strawberry pavlova, cheesecake, pannacotta. But this time, muffins seemed like a perfect […]

Traditional Christmas Plum Cake

Traditional Christmas Plum Cake

Christmas is good baking/food, and school holidays for me. Being a Punjabi, Christmas is never a big affair at home, though we relish the whole atmosphere around. It’s so bright, happy and live, so positive everywhere. We don’t do much at home, but kids do have Christmas Parties to attend to. And I do, crave a good Rich Christmas Plum Cake during this festival.  Just one slice with coffee (and a movie of my choice) is what I want. When […]
