Black forest cake is one of the hot selling cakes in any bakery. And even the recipe in my blog and YouTube have got a good number of views. Whenever I post cake recipes, I get so many requests for cooker cakes. In India, before OTGs came into normal day to day use, pressure cookers were the ovens for most of the housewives, including my mom. My mom used to add some fine sand in the bottom of a cooker or a cast iron pan and baked cakes in it. The sand used to maintain even heat throughout the pan and so the cake baked will turn out so good. I started pressure cooker baking only after some viewers asked me for the recipe.
Vegetarian version of the white chocolate mirror glaze has been in my to do list for long. I have even tried it so many times and failed it. So I just stopped trying. But my readers and viewers haven’t stopped asking me about it. I used to reply that I will do, but didn’t get the needed push to do it. When I went to Delhi, I met with one of Vaishali’s nieces who wanted a recipe for white chocolate glaze so that she can make it for her kid’s first birthday. I promised her that I will post a video immediately.
Click on any image to view the video. I have been facing some problems embedding my video in the blog. So for now, watch it on YouTube.
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.
From my childhood days, I have been a great fan of puffs. The flaky crispy pastry with a savoury filling always makes my mouth water. When I was in college, we bought a small oven. We also had a book which covered all the basic baking recipes including the Indian bakery style puffs. I noted down the recipe and tried it. As you can imagine, it was a great flop. So from that day, I stopped trying puffs at home and enjoyed them in bakeries. After four years, I stopped eating eggs and completely avoided eating puffs at bakery.
Piping roses with whipped cream is an easy task. If you just know the technique behind it, you can create beautiful colourful cakes with whipped cream. This is one of the most requested designs and finally I decided to make it for a celebration. My YouTube channel crossed 10,000 subscribers today and this is for all of you who have encouraged me with your comments and likes throughout my journey.
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.
After the two chocolate cupcakes in a row, here is a different one which is a favourite for most of the people I know. Red velvet is is my favourite too. Even though some are not very keen on the food colour used, I don’t mind tasting this once in a while. But still I need to try a recipe using beetroot for those who wants the all natural cupcake. These red velvet cupcakes are made with oil and so these can be decorated with cream frosting and can be refrigerated without loosing the moistness. And like most of the eggless cakes, this is a one bowl recipe. Mix everything in a bowl and bake.
Cookies and cream is a combination which has been tried widely in cakes and desserts. So I decided to make my version of the cupcakes. For the cupcake recipe I used my eggless chocolate cupcakes I posted earlier with little change for a more fluffier texture. I also made a video for the same. The batter has an oreo cookie stuffed inside before baking. And the cream has the oreo crumbs in it. And finally, an oreo cookie tops the whole cupcake.
When I did the white modelling chocolate video, I had too many requests from readers and viewers to show how to use it on cakes. Though modelling chocolate is a great alternative for fondant, it doesn’t work like fondant. The clay is very different in texture and needs some getting used to before using it for covering cakes. It cannot be draped on a cake as it is not as pliable as fondant. You need to wrap the cake instead of draping. Here is my attempt to show you how to do it.
