Pistachio Meringue Cake with Mascarpone Lemon Curd Frosting

Moist and crumbly Pistachio Meringue Cake with not so overly sweet Mascarpone Lemon Curd Frosting! This was my husband’s birthday cake last week. The cake is pretty good on it’s own but I had to make it look pretty. The candied orange along with few a meringue cookie were the perfect little effortless toppings that went beautifully with the cake. We all loved the cake, including our little fella who doesn’t approve any cake that doesn’t include chocolate in it.

Rainbow Cake

Pick all the colors you can think of, mix it with the cake batter and make the most colorful Rainbow Cake. And if you love frosting then by all means go bold on that too. I used quick butter cream frosting. Now because it’s a special cake to celebrate the festival of HOLI colorful sprinkles went on top. HOLI is after all the festival of colors!

Plum Cake

Plum Cake is a simple summer cake with beautiful nutty crumbs from almond meal and juicy sweet plums nestled on top. The nutty almond flavor with a little bit of nutmeg and cardamom makes this a very tasty teatime plum cake. A tiny dollop of whipped heavy cream would be great on the side, but I just love this Summer Plum Cake as is, with a cup of tea.

Rosemary-Walnut Loaf Cake

The cake, a book and some hot tea; joy in simple pleasures! I grew up eating a lot of home-baked vanilla flavored cake with no frosting. We didn't have a cookie jar to dig in after school but we had a cake box that would hardly be empty. Ma didn't need any special occasion, she just needed some free time in hand and our lunch box would definitely have a piece of cake in it.

Lemon Cake With Basil Mascarpone Frosting

Last weekend was one of those rare weekends when we spent both the days at home. We relaxed, cooked a lot and ate cake for breakfast in our pajamas. It was Arvind’s birthday on Sunday and this time, I got a little ambitious with the cake. I layered the cake, covered it with basil frosting and even made candied basil leaves to decorate on the cake. Although the flavor was really nice, the cake turned out a tad bit dry. And as for making the cake look pretty, I have a long way to get there!

I am a big fan of citrus cake and adding cornmeal to the batter gave a lovely texture. February is the Heart Health Month and keeping that in mind the cake is prepared with Mazola® Corn Oil.
