Desserts in a Jiffy

Recipe: 1 Minute Microwave Flourless Chocolate Cake

Do you sometimes get an intense craving for a mouthful of deep dark chocolaty yumminess?

I do... almost every other week

Single-serving microwave cake recipes are perfect for such times. However, most of them never worked for me. Unless I ate them scalding hot and burnt my mouth in the process. Once cool, they almost always turned out dry and hard.

Finally I tried out a recipe for microwave flourless cake. That was better than the ones with flour. But it was still a little more pudding-like and a little less cake-like. Until I added some Nutella to the batter :) That was perfect. Even after an hour, when the cake was cool, it was moist and cakey...

Some days later, I also experimented using peanut butter instead of nutella and it resulted in a wonderful chocolate peanut flavoured cake.

Its very easy to make and takes just about a minute to cook.

Baking with Corn

Recipe: Cheesy, Crunchy Corn Bake

Babies have sixth sense...

I'm sure...

Have you noticed how just when you have to do some really important work and are running short of time, the peacefully sleeping baby wakes up crying?

It was the exact same case when I was trying to complete baking and take the photos for this post... (and the same case every morning too...)

Refreshing Re-beginnings

Recipe: Monsoon Mazaa

I have been away for a long time.

Though I've been wanting to get back all the time, life just kept giving me tons to do. My hands were full with a new addition to my family last year, sleepless nights, my support system crumbling apart, bouts of bad health, returning back to work after maternity leave, etc.. You could just say that life took over the blog....

Finally one day I happened to see the facebook page for Indian Food Blogger Meet and I was thrilled. But my hopes were soon dampened when I realised that I was no longer a regular blogger - it had been more than a year since I posted. The kind organisers of IFBM agreed to get back to me if there was a seat vacant after the regular bloggers enrolled.

And there was...

Woohoo!!! I am going to the Indian Food Bloggers Meet :)

And then there were the competitions. When I saw the Urban Dazzle mocktail/cocktail competition, I knew I had to do it. I had baskets and baskets of fruits at home (thanks to my parent's farm) If I missed this, then even the fruit flies wouldn't forgive me...

I had to experiment with the flavours when the little one was asleep and all the photographs have been clicked with me tip-toeing around my sleeping baby :)
