If you are a baker, the name “Madeleine” may not be unheard. For others the name may sound like a complicated confectionery but trust me, it is not as tricky as you think and you can easily make these beautiful bite sized dessert at home. Let me tell you that this thing may look and sound really fancy but the French madeleine recipe just needs your regular sponge cake ingredients, yes the technique is a bit different and once you master that you can make madeleines every now and then just like me. I’ve made them thrice this week and every time it just gets polished off in a matter of few hours. Continue reading
Pretty, gorgeous and colourful things have always caught my attention. I was planning a basic eggless doughnut recipe post since very long and now that I’m ready to upload, I’m so pleased by the pictures. The doughnuts look absolutely gorgeous, don’t they? I know I boasted a bit but really I can keep on looking at the pictures for as long as possible.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning? I know most of us want tea, right? until someone is a coffee person! Well I’m whole heartedly a big time tea lover. A cup of tea in morning can keep me going for the entire day. I’m talking about regular milk tea here or the english breakfast tea to be specific.

I’ve used gourmet black tea leaves from the brand Assam1860 and the dessert I created is Chai Spiced Bundt Cake with my choice of spices, a tea flavoured glaze topped with lots of crushed almonds and pistachios.

This Ricotta, Chocolate and Cherry Tart had been on my mind for quite sometime now. The reason I couldn’t make it was unavailability of Ricotta Cheese in my city. It still isn’t available so are you wondering how I came up with dessert. Continue reading
Cheese is a favourite to everyone, but most people in India are familiar with only the processed variety which is widely available. Anyone who is into baking or knows much about cheese will never be happy with the cheese availability scenario of India, and so is the case with me. A lot of times I have to let go off so many recipes that I want to try just for a mere reason that an ingredient is not available. In cases like this, the best that can be done is “Substitution”. So, a recipe that I wanted to try out recently, required ricotta cheese which is no way available in my city and I bet it is not available in most of the cities in India. I researched and found out that making ricotta cheese at home is really simple and thought of sharing the recipe with all my readers which can be really helpful. Homemade ricotta cheese requires a handful of usual ingredients and few hours, that can’t get better! Continue reading
