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!

Olive Oil Chocolate Cupcakes

I am not much of a baker but I do have a few cake recipes that I can completely vouch for. This one bowl olive oil chocolate cupcakes is one such recipe that I make quite often and has a lot of approvals from both adults and kids! The Olive Oil Chocolate Cupcakes come out fluffy and moist. The best part is that the batter makes exactly 12 cupcakes.

One Bowl Banana Nut Bread

I didn’t think I would need another recipe of Banana bread until I tasted my cousin’s recipe. He enjoys baking with his kids and on our beach day, he got this super moist loaf of banana bread. It was the best banana bread I ever had and this One Bowl Banana Nut Bread has now become my go-to banana bread recipe. It’s moist but not dense, crumbly but not dry, the texture and sweetness are spot on too.

Mango Panna Cotta

If you are ever in doubt of what dessert to make for a party or for random mid-week indulgence, go for a Panna Cotta. It’s the easiest thing that one can pull off with absolutely minimal effort. Every time I make something as simple as a panna cotta, I wonder why don’t I make it more often! I made Mango Panna Cotta last week. It was absolutely luscious, velvety and so smooth to the palate.

Orange Chess Pie

I came across Megan's blog through Instagram and her story instantly inspired me. She has Ulcerative Colitis and she has been fighting the disease for a long time now. Her blog, Meg is Well, started as a way for her to navigate through the struggles and to feel less isolated with the world around her. Read about her journey that she is going through in her blog. She is one strong girl and I absolutely adore her! Today, she is sharing a stunning Orange Chess Pie with you all. I am a sucker for any citrus dessert and this pie sure does make me…

Raspberry Pistachio Eton Mess

When I met Arvind 11 years ago, I realized very soon that he was different from all the men that I had met before. He was caring, very soft-spoken and so patient! It’s been 8 years since we got married, made a beautiful boy, bought a house and travelled to a few countries. That beautiful man has changed my life and whatever I am today, it’s because of his constant support and motivation. It might sound silly but I am living my fairytale life. Someday, I will share our not-so-ordinary love story but for today, it’s a delicious Raspberry Pistachio…

Santra Badam Barfi (Orange Almond Fudge)

The delicate sweet tangy orange with the richness of ghee and almond make Santra Badam Barfi a delicacy for your palate. It’s moreish and almost melts in your mouth at every bite. We Indians love barfi (dense milk-based fudge) and make it quite often, be it a special occasion or not. There are different types of barfi one can make with addition of nuts and fruits.

EASY Flan / Creme Caramel

Gently jiggling, sitting on a pool of dark caramel sauce! The contrast of this rich eggy custard with the faintly burnt taste of caramel is what makes crème caramel or flan so special. Glossy, shiny and so smooth that every bite just slides across your tongue. Called as Crème Caramel in Italy and flan in Spain, it is a simple baked custard with caramel topping.
