Yeasted Coffee Cake – Chocolate Cream and Black Current Delight

As soon as I saw the Daring Baker’ challenge I knew that I may not be able to take it this time, reason being the meringue which is the main ingredient for baking this lovely cake. Since I do not use eggs in my baking and meringue calls for the same I left the challenge feeling sad not being able to complete it. But after seeing the lovely posts on the DB with these baked goodies I could not resist myself and baked the same cake using chocolate and cream mix.

Cinnamon rolls – A Healthy Twist with Palm Sugar, honey and walnuts

Cinnamon rolls are a very common breakfast feast in many European counties. A soft and flavorful yeast bun/roll I would love to munch upon any time of the day. Though the lazy & the busy will find it a bit tough nut to crack, which includes me too 🙂 As the resting hours are really intimidating and test your patience levels to the full! But the end results are sure to make you ecstatic.

To make these cinnamon rolls loaded with nutrients I added Palm sugar instead of the regular white sugar. Honey, walnuts, cinnamon and wholewheat are the other contestants fighting for their place in the health chart of these cinnamon rolls. Palm sugar gave a very caramelized and lovely flavors to the rolls.

Baking butterflies….and a Perfect Eggless Orange Loaf

It just struck to me that I have not posted any bread recipes using the yeast till date. The first time I baked a bread was way back in 1984 during my 10th board exams. I wanted to divert myself to something more exciting and appealing than the boring and lifeless formulas and equations of chemistry 🙂 And bread making was one such area.

I did bake a bread and my mom took it to her office and asked (or forced, should I say) everyone to taste and pass on the comments to me. I came to know much later that while I passed in good colors in my board exams, my bread sank 🙁

Still whenever I bake a bread I have butterflies in my stomach. More often I opt for baking my breads with leavening agents (baking soda) which is much easier and quicker, rather than baking with yeast.

Whole Navel Orange-Honey Eggless Cake

I love bright Navel Oranges, the fact that they are seedless and juicy makes me an ardent fan of these orange beauties. Navel Oranges are a delicacy in baking cakes and muffins, as these impart beautiful color and flavors to the goodies.

These fruits are devoid of seeds and are propagated by cutting method . And since the blossom end of the fruit resembles the human navel it has got this unusual name – ‘Navel Orange’. Navel Orange-Honey Egg less Cake is a real treat with distinct flavors and soft texture.

Ragi or Finger Millet Pancakes for a Healthy Breakfast

Pancake is a weekend breakfast at my home. And I often get worked up thinking new ideas and innovative ways to bring different flavors and taste to pancakes. This time I tried adding Ragi, Finger Millet to my Pancake batter just to add extra bit of nutrition to the breakfast. And I was surprised when my 6 years old daughter enjoyed and finished it without any complain 🙂

Easy Cinnamon Tea-Cake

A piece of cake and a cup of tea will give any evening a perfect start. This Easy Cinnamon Tea Cake is my all time favorite. I love the earthy aroma of cinnamon in my cake, and the coffee adds up the extra zing to the cake. My kids don’t enjoy this delicacy as most of kids do not like coffee and cinnamon flavors. All the more better, I get to indulge in it all by myself, with a few slices spared for my dear hubby 🙂

Banana & Carrot Eggless Bread

‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ holds true for this Banana & carrot eggless bread which added one more foodie inventions in my recipe network. I never tried a cake or a bread in a pressure cooker, as there was always a smiling Microwave sitting pretty in my kitchen. But the sudden current cut made me do so. After assembling all the ingredients for the bread, mixing the batter and pouring the mix in the bread pan, the current went off and my microwave went silent!

Eggless Carrot Muffins

Easy to bake, with very few ingredients and steps to go, muffins could be any first timers’ delight.

I like to bake muffins with added fruits and flavors to add variety for my kids’ snack box. Carrot being one of my favorites in vegetables I often use it in most of my cooking. Carrot muffins can be made in advance and frozen in refrigerator for future use. You can defrost the muffins in microwave whenever you require. It stays good for almost 4-5 days at normal temperature, in an airtight container.
