Mace is the outer covering of the Nutmeg fruit. It has a beautiful lacy form. The aroma is wonderful. As I searched for recipes using mace, I saw a lot of Indian biriyani and kurma recipes. When I searched for international recipes, I got recipes for cakes and cookies.
I didn’t want to try biriyani, because many spices are used for the masala. The flavour of mace will go undetected in those recipes. I wanted to prepare something in which the flavour of mace is the dominating factor. So I decided upon a cookie. When finished baking one batch, I was not satisfied with the results. They were so soft. So I added more buttermilk and prepared a cake batter, Filled some paper cups and baked them. Wow! The result was super soft and spongy muffins with crispy peanuts. The taste was divine. We liked it very much. The aroma of ground mace filled the house. mmmm… yummy..
I prepared this using the home made biscuit mix. You can prepare it in large quantities and store it in the fridge for 2 weeks. If freezed it will be good for 6 months. I got this recipe from here.
