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.
The recipe uses whole wheat flour and no refined flour. I have used unrefined sugar too. It has a mild sweetness and is very apt for breakfast or mid morning snack. The recipe is a keeper.
The muffin recipe is super easy to bake. Its done within 30 minutes. This is definitely a must try recipe , eggless too.
It looks so appealing with the jam on the top and kids will surely enjoy them. So that day I decided to make the normal way without any healthy ingredients. I used all purpose flour and granulated white sugar. I used only half a cup of sugar and it was okay for us. There is sweetness of the jam too.
I have seen in a couple of blogs featuring them and they looked quite tempting. I wouldn’t call this cake completely healthy. I have used an egg and the regular granulated sugar and the usual ingredients. Except that I have added more of whole wheat flour and a little of plain flour. But for a more whiter and a spongier texture, you can consider using plain flour completely.
I do wish to come back to regular blogging but it really seems quite impossible these day as the routine work takes up all the time. Weekdays are very tiring and weekends are for relaxing so that we can regain the energy and be ready for the next weeks haul. […]
This is a very easy recipe and its my go to recipe whenever I don’t have much time for cooking. This does not really require any side dish as such though you can serve a side dish of your choice if you like it that way. Papads or chips should be a good choice to serve with too!
I had made this brownies a couple of months ago for my kids snacktime. They love anything with chocolate and I promptly sneaked in some sweet potatoes making the brownies healthier. Walnuts give a nice crunch and chocolate just enhance the taste. They had a nice texture and were really delicious. Kids enjoyed and sweet potatoes imparts the necessary sweetness , So I have added very little sugar to it in the end.
This time I used pumpkin. Its a very simple recipe and can be done in a few minutes. This is also an interesting way to sneak in some pumpkin in your diet especially if you are a pumpkin hater. Many people I know hate pumpkin as they find it quite sweet for their taste. But in this recipe , you actually cant guess that there is pumpkin. Also cashews gives a nice creaminess to the pasta.
I have been baking atleast once a week for the past few weeks. I serve them to the kids during tea time. So they are quite overjoyed. My son observed this and told me that its feels good to have home baked goodies every week. It is satisfying for me […]
