Chai Spiced Bundt Cake

CHAI SPICED EGGLESS BUNDT CAKEWhat 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.

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
