Do you remember my Chocolate Crinkle Cookies? This one is a twist to that recipe. I used oil in that recipe and I used butter here. And changed the flour and cocoa proportions and added food colour to get these cookies. My cookies turned out to be darker red, but if you want bright ones like my Red Velvet Cake, you need to change the proportion of flour and cocoa. I will give it in the recipe so that you can decide on the resultant colour. Sending this to Kid’s Delight – Cakes and Cookies hosted by Vidya and started by Srivalli.

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.
We are now on the third week of Bake-a-thon 2016. This week, I will be posting three cupcakes. To my pleasure, all the cupcakes turned out perfect and I was so happy. These were the first batch of recipes I made for this event. And the very first was made by my daughter. If you are my friend on FB, you might know that I celebrated my birthday on October and my daughter made me those cupcakes. And I have reserved them for this event on blog. My daughter being 10 years old, made thse cupcakes from scratch. And she also made those chocolate gems on top. I had some butter cream from the previous project and it went for the frosting.
Cream Cheese has been a rare ingredient for me as I don’t get it even in supermarkets at my place. So when I saw a recipe for making it at home, I immediately tried it. And it has been my go to recipe for a few years. But recently I found that there is a simpler recipe which produces the most smoothest cream cheese ever at home and I have already made two batches of it. So what do I do with all those cream cheese? I made cheese cakes, cup cakes and three different type of frostings ( video coming soon) and now I don’t have any of the cream cheese left. I think I will make it after two months. It has been an overload of cream cheese last month.
This no bake Crustless Pistachio Saffron Cheesecake shots are my entry for the third day of dessert in glass theme. Yesterday I was telling you about my experiments with the cheese cake mixture which sets beautifully and slices neatly without melting. I have happy news to share. I just found out the best cheesecake mix recipe using china grass. From now on, I will be doing different cheesecakes without the danger of failure. And with the best home made cream cheese recipe, I think my folks at home are going to be really happy.
Read on to know The Best Homemade Cream Cheese Recipe. I have made cream cheese at home already which is my go to recipe till now. You can watch the video and read about it at Home made Cream Cheese. But after I started using the liquid rennet for my cheese making, I was searching for a recipe for cream cheese too. The recipe I have posted before is just a substitute for cream cheese and can be made with paneer and curd. It is effective but it is still not very smooth. There is a slight grittiness from the paneer, however you grind it. I even have got queries about making smooth cream cheese as we get in shops. But at that time, I didn’t know about it and so I couldn’t give them a better recipe. But don’t worry, it works great in all cream cheese related recipes. I have already made no bake cheese cake, baked cheese cake, cream cheese cookies and many more. But if I tell you that there is one more recipe which gives you the smoothest cream cheese, will you say no to it? Of course not.
Halloween is just a week far and I wanted to make a cake specially for that. Conceiving a cake idea is really hard. When I am not very sure what to make, I ask my daughter. She usually gives an answer which will form the foundation of my project. So when I asked her for Halloween ideas, she mentioned spooky witches’ fingers. I have it already on the blog so I said no. But after a while, I thought why not make a cake with the spooky fingers. I couldn’t find a single cake made with finger cookies, so decided to make it.
When I was in college, in Mysore, we used to visit bakeries during free hours, and the only cake I would order was honey cake. With syrup oozing out of the cake, it was such a tasty delight. And after finishing college, I stopped eating eggs and so never went to a bakery after that. It has been nearly 18 years since I stopped eating eggs and it has been that long since I tasted a cake from a bakery. I used to be so crazy about cakes and I think it is the only reason I started making cakes at home. And I never ever dreamed that I would be in a position of advising others regarding baking. It is really so hard to guess life.
