    RECIPE: BRAZILIAN CARROT CAKE Brazilian Carrot Cake is not only beautifully bright but so soft, moist, fluffy and divine. Drizzled with melted dark chocolate, it makes a perfect dessert or enjoy some with coffee. I’d come across the recipe years ago and had jotted it down. Then, had forgotten all about it. Generally, if I’m not with family for my birthday, it does not occur to my hubby to order a cake! I’d actually been dropping hints that there are quite a few ladies in our apartment complex who bake and sell cakes, one is my neighbor. However, come 20th Feb there is no cake! So the hunt for an easy peasy cake began as I knew my other neighbor’s kid would be expecting a…

    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: CHOCOLATE Chilli Avocado Chocolate Cake: Vegan, fudgy, eggless and delicious, are the words to describe this incredibly easy to bake chilli avocado chocolate cake. If you’re a lover of avocado and chocolate like me then you’ll love this cake. Since I love the combination of chocolate and chilli, I decided to add a bit in the cake batter.

  • Eggless Chocolate Cake

    Eggless Chocolate Cake This eggless chocolate is my no fail cake recipe and I’ve been baking it for a very long time. I mostly get requests to bake an eggless cake for parties, for religious gatherings and for tea time. Whenever we have guests coming home for tea of dinner, I get requests to bake an eggless cake. I’ve tried the condensed milk one, even ones with flax egg but I prefer to make this recipe with yogurt. The yogurt makes the cake crumb soft and melt in the mouth kind. People cannot believe that this cake is without eggs. A Century – my 100th Recipe Cannot believe that I’ve actually posted 99 recipes. Wow! Most of my family members thought that I would give…

For this recipe I use both as you want a burst of mango flavour with each bite.   What is a Mango? Mango is a juicy stone fruit (drupe). Yes, though we all say mango seed, its actually called a stone. Undoubtedly India is the world’s biggest supplier of mangoes. Having said that, a visit to Carrefour in Dubai (my first visit to UAE), I was totally baffled at the variety of fruits that were sold. When we came to the mango side, you name the variety and it was there. Sitting pretty at the far end were apple mangoes…
