    EVENT: FOODIE’S REDOING OLD POSTS #9 What is the advantage of this theme? Old posts just get lost in the wide wide wide web unless they are very popular. Renu who blog’s at Cook with Renu has started a Facebook Group called Foodies_ Redoing Old Posts where every two weeks we can redo our old posts and share it on the group. What’s the advantage of doing this? Well, it gives us the opportunity to improve the write up, update photos and get comments. I’ve got so many old posts that need updating especially where the photos are concerned. This group with definitely give me the ‘push’ to prepare the dishes again for better photos. What is a trifle? Trifle is an English dessert which…

    Happy raksha bandhan day to my dear brothers Rakshabandhan is a special day celebrated by brothers and sisters. Its that time of the year when brothers get fed sweet stuff and sisters get a present. In the olden days while tying the rakhi, sisters usually fed their brothers a piece of jaggery or sugar lump. Then it progressed to laddoos and barfis. Nowadays most brothers shy away from ghee laden sweet stuff and instead prefer chocolates. Unfortunately this rakshabandhan I will not be either in London or Nairobi to feed my brothers some yummy home made chocolates. Sorry, no cannot post them either as they may not get past the post office workers here, or have a brilliant idea, pass on the recipe to my…

  • 125.chocolate banana walnut muffins

    July 26, 2012mayurisjikoni

    Muffins, I love Bananas and chocolate are a classic combination for cakes, muffins, smoothies, cookies etc. These muffins turn out very soft and spongy even though I have not used eggs. Yogurt and fruit puree are excellent replacements for eggs. Most of the muffins I have blogged do not have any frosting on top as usually I prefer to reduce the calorie intake. Feel free to add frosting on yours. updated 03/07/2016 Muffins are very easy to prepare. Its basically all about mixing the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. I prefer to sift the flour with salt, baking agents, cocoa powder, spices etc. I mix the wet ingredients together, eggs, oil, butter, fruit purees, juices etc. The basic rule is not to over mix.…

    I love strawberries Fresh fruit cupcakes are delicious, soft and fruity. I went to Nairobi last week and came back with loads of fresh sweet strawberries. I had to bake these yummy cup cakes this morning. Ideal for breakfast or tea. I left mine without any decoration but you can serve them with whipped fresh cream or just sieve some icing sugar over the tops. I loved these cupcakes as they are not too sweet and you can actually taste the strawberries and chocolate chips.  EGGLESS STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP CUPCAKES Yields 12 to 16 cupcakes 1½ cups whole wheat flour (atta) 1½ tsps baking powder 1 tsp soda bicarbonate pinch of salt ½ cup sugar, white or brown 4 tbsps soft butter 1 tsp vanilla…

    a century… my 100th recipe Cannot believe that I have actually posted 99 recipes and this one will be the 100th one. Wow! However, at the same time feeling a bit sad as its nearly the end of June and I have only 100 recipes blogged. Will I meet my target of 366? My ever optimistic daughter, Nami says I will. I rather believe her than to feel too bad. I still have loads of recipes not tested and tried or some which I need to try because I need to formulate the measurements. So obviously there is no shortage of recipes. Its just that I need to find time to try them, blog them.By blogging these recipes I have earned a new title of…

    What is Chocolate Pistachio Fudge? A fudge is a crumbly or chewy sweet made from sugar, milk or cream and butter. They are mixed and cooked over low heat, stirring it all the time till it thickens to a soft ball consistency. When you add chocolate to it is called a chocolate fudge. Chocolate fudge can be plain or with nuts, seeds, dried fruits of your choice. A Chocoholic Alright, finally admitting to the world that I’m a chocoholic. I love all kinds of chocolates, milk, dark or white. Usually lunch or dinner ends with a small piece of chocolate. Normally, I just buy chocolate from the supermarket but once in a while I get in the mood to make chocolate at home. Being a…

  • 47. eggless carrot muffins

    May 14, 2012mayurisjikoni

    happy birthday Daxa Yesterday was my best friend’s birthday. Usually I bake something to give her as a present as she doesn’t bake much. So obviously this year was no different. So with all the ingredients ready I was on a mission to bake some eggless carrot muffins.I had got the recipe from a blog I can’t remember and was there in the book under the heading ‘try out’. I didn’t scrutinize the recipe, thinking that most are written out well and do turn out pretty good. So while I was mixing and measuring, realised that the batter  was turning out too dry. So putting my know how of baking into action had to re vamp the recipe and start afresh. The end result was…
