This month’s Bread Bakers host Mayuri of Mayuri’s Jikoni wanted us to make pancakes. And it can be a regular one or from any part of the world. When I was browsing through the blogs, I found that there are so many types of pancakes around the world and even our dosas come under the same category. I was looking for easy recipes and as it involves maida, I wanted to make a small batch. I saw the Greek version of pancakes usually served with honey. When I read the recipes, I found there were two recipes for the tiganites. One is like the usual pancake made with flour, milk and eggs but the other one was made with yeast and had no eggs. So I chose to make the yeasted tiganites.
It has been such a long time since I made a video in m YouTube channel. Though I had this video clipping ready before a month, I couldn’t find time to edit it and upload it. And also I my blog is giving me so many problems for the past two weeks. Even now I have some problem regarding YouTube and so I couldn’t attach the video here. I will give the link to the video below so that you can check it on my channel. I am trying really hard to rectify it.
Baking without oven is an interesting technique and it has been so popular in India. In fact my mom used to bake her cakes in a cast iron pan filled with sand which creates the required temperature inside needed for baking the cake. But after we got our first oven, we completely forgot about it. Once I started posting videos, I have had so many readers asking me to do recipes without oven. So I started baking with pressure cooker again. My first recipe Eggless Red Velvet Cake was a hit among viewers. So I made these soft and tender pav buns in pressure cooker for all those who love baking but don’t have access to oven.
Brioche is an enriched French bread with a very soft, tender crumb. Traditionally, it’s made with a good quantity of eggs and butter, but for those who don’t eat eggs for any reason, this recipe is definitely a keeper. And to make it more interesting I have used wheat flour or atta to make these buns. You can use it a sandwich/ burger bun or just taste it slathered with nutella or butter or jam. However you serve this it tastes so buttery and yum. This month’s Bread Bakers host Pavani of Cook’s Hideout wanted to make us healthy breads. So I used wheat flour in this recipe but I couldn’t skip butter as the whole recipe depends on butter.
For the second day of Cakes and Cookies theme, I chose to make chocolate muffins. My daughter is a great chocoholic and she loves anything chocolate. Muffins are easy to bake and makes a lovely snack for kids. When I went through the list of muffins I have baked, I saw that I don’t have a chocolate muffin in my archive. So I decided upon these muffins and to make it more interesting, I added tutti frutti and choco chips to the batter.
Let me start this New Year with a delicious chocolate cake. I have been trying to make swiss roll for so many days now. Making a perfect roll without any cracks is a great challenge. And I have been failing badly in it. When I saw a recipe for chocolate swiss roll, I noted that recipe and tried it on one fine day. And like all the attempts, even this failed and I was left with a bowl full of cake crumbs. I didn’t want to make cake pops again. So I searched the net for recipes to use up the cake crumbs and chanced upon a video by Bhavana. That video gave me an idea for these rolls.
