mango cake

Mango cake recipe

I decided to bake a mango cake. I used a simple vanilla cake recipe and adjusted the ingredients to include the mango puree. I used fresh indian mango(banganapalli) variety . I did not bother to try with the whole wheat flour this time and went ahead with the refined flour. The cake turned out to be very soft and spongy.

 
cream cheese cookies

Cream cheese cookies

The recipe was just decided on an impulse. I had some cream cheese nearing expiry date. I had made this delicious banana bread with the cream cheese. So I thought of using the rest in the cookies. I never imagined it to be so good.

Banana cream cheese bread

This particular bread happened when I had the abundance of all the required ingredients. I had seen this recipe recently and I love it as it was a bit unusual than rest of the banana breads we usually bake. I had bought some cream cheese couple of months ago and I had to use them.

 

How to make almond butter – Almond butter recipe – Vegan recipes

Making vegan butter (though I am not a vegan) with nuts at home and using them in my bakes was in my mind for a very long time. Finally I made them with almonds and used them in my cookies and they really turned out great. My kids loved them too. I do want to try more of such recipes and will be posting them as I try. Until then try out the easy and healthy cookie recipe with this butter which I am posting soon after this one.
