This is my first attempt making eggless cake. Since long time, one of my friend was requesting for the eggless cake recipe for her kids. Flax seed is the best substitute for egg and healthy too. It’s good to add flax seeds in our diet as much as possible daily in limitted amount. Read more

It’s hard to say ‘NO’ to Chakka varatti / Jackfruit preserve which is Kerala’s traditional sweet dish. We all love chakka varatti and jackfruit too. When last time I went for vacation, I just got 6 pcs of jackfruit from my neighbour (she got a quarter portion from her friend and shared it with me, so nice of her) as she knows that it’s my favorite one. I want to eat them but I couldn’t as it’s going to finish. I was enjoying the beauty & taking each bite very slowly & also I have to share it with Ayden to taste because that was his first time jackfruit…. luckily that was very sweet and tender jackfruit…
Here the jackfruit preserve used for the cake preparation is my mom’s loveful homemade one, send to us, and this is going to be a chakka varatti season for us. Read more
Vettu cake is a famous Kerala tea stall snack which is only seen in rural areas. This is one of my favorite cake, but very rarely cooked as it is deep fried. Vettu cake is more beautiful when covered in newspaper, that’s the way we get it from tea stall. Read more

April 4th, it’s Binson’s Birthday…… It’s a special day for me too….
In previous years I ordered cake, invited friends, gave gifts & that was complete surprise for him. He might have expected that I would do something this time. This time we three celebrated with a cake made by myself. That was really exciting, cake preparation kept me almost whole day busy. This is my first frosted cake, I never used to frost cakes at home before. It’s pretty entertaining if you have interest on it. After all effort, I feel like this was the most precious gift I gave him ever. Once again Happy Birthday to my love….
The cake came out perfect, tasty, yummy & the aroma filled my house with the happiness. I have prepared it in very simple way using basic stuffs. I have only one round tray, so I baked the 2 cakes one after other. You can leave the rest batter till the first cake get ready. For the frosting cake stand I took a circular granite piece & kept on top of a wide bowl (smaller than the granite), cover the granite with foil paper or leave as it is. And when it comes to cake decoration, as I said before, frosting is very rare rare thing in my kitchen. So I was looking for a cheapest cake decoration kit, as I don’t wan’t to spend more for a rarely using stuff. But this time it was a necessary thing for my plan, I went through shops, surprisingly I found Betty Crocker 11 pc decorating kit which worth $25 & the deal I got for $2.99 !!! Amazing ryt?? All set, let’s go for the recipe….. Coconut Pineapple Cake!! Read more

Today it’s very cloudy outside and am simply sitting at home. The cloudy dark days are really very boring for me and my little boy, especially when we both are in a mood to have something sweet. We were hardly trying to collect the ingredients as it was almost time to refill my kitchen by this weekend. My little boy was completely involved to help his mama by picking big big tins from the draw, dropping it on the floor, it was kind of confusing me and I opened the same tins again and again.

Now a days Ayden is not eating anything properly and its been hard for me to feed him. But he will be just opposite if I feed him anything made of blueberries. Even if he is full, he will ask me to feed him again and again. Still I am happy because blueberries are high in antioxidants, fiber and its very good for baby’s eyes, brain etc. It is one of the best food for kids……
So here am gonna make blueberry cake, so that we both and Ayden can enjoy this together. Read more
