Wacky cake recipe - vegan chocolate cake - No egg no butter cake recipes

      What if you want to bake a cake in a hurry?You dont have eggs at home and cant run to the grocery store now.  Are you calorie conscious and dont want to eat a cake because of the butter in it. 
Try this cake. You can have the cake and eat it too!!!
         I had seen this recipe a couple of months ago in chef in you website and several other blogs. I had loved the recipe and wanted to try it immediately, but had somehow forgotten it due to other commitments. Later when Usha had posted it last month, I was reminded of it and tried it on the same day. It is so easy to bake and is also ready in minutes. You can make the batter in the same cake tin itself. The ingredients are readily available too. It does not require butter or eggs or even baking powder.We all loved it a lot. I even stored it in the refrigerator and we had it the next day. It actually tasted even better the next day , as with time, the flavours are beautifully absorbed.

        The history of the cake is interesting too. It was made during the world war II days when there was a shortage of butter,milk and eggs. There are some variations too. I would love to try similar recipes in future and will be posting them if they come out well.
        So do try this cake. You are going to love this one and you can even gift it to your friends.
Do give your feedback if you try this one.

Tandoori paneer gobi tikka recipe - Paneer recipes

     We hardly eat out nowadays.Its around once or twice a month. So during weekends, I try to make something special for all of us. Its only during the weekends, I get to spend a decent amount of time in the kitchen.I make naans and exotic subji or masala dosa with some restaurant style sambar and chutneys or poori masala. One such day, we felt like having something really dabba style, spicy and delicious. So I decided to make this kind of tandoori style paneer and also add some cauliflower in it.
I served some with some rotis and we had some dipped in some mint yogurt chutney. We really enjoyed it.

Eggless double chocolate whole wheat muffin recipe- Easy eggless baking recipes

          We love the chocolate chip muffin available here at the supermarket and I always buy them as they are quite tempting. My kids love them too. I love the strong chocolate flavour in it and its moistness. I always wanted to make something like that at home. I found a vanilla chocolate chip muffin recipe here and made a couple of changes to make it into a chocolate muffin. It was quite delicious and quite similar to the muffin I buy at the stores. Though of course there was a slight change in the texture as I have used a major proportion of atta here. But let me tell you there is not a hint of taste of atta in the muffin as it usually does. The batter is quite sticky due to the addition of atta, but that doesn't really matter when the taste is going to be awesome.
