The second ingredient PJ sent me is a flour which I couldn’t recognize. It looked a bit different from ragi flour and the flovour was totally new to me. I even put a pinch of it in my mouth to see whether I can identify the flour, but sadly no. I then messaged PJ and she gave me the answer. It is buckwheat flour/ Kuttu ka Atta which we don’t get in Tamil Nadu. But I have heard a lot about this flour and know that it is gluten free. There are so many Indian recipes I could try but who is going to eat? Myself and hubby are both on low carb diet and no type of atta can be consumed. Only Sruti can eat it but she will never eat ladoo or any other sweet. So I had choose a recipe so that my daughter would eat it without any reservation. That is how I came upon this cookie. Loaded with choco chips and butter scotch chips, I was sure, Sruti would love this.

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.
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.
This month has been very bad so far. I have been failing in many of my experiments and I am feeling so low nowadays. But still I couldn’t keep away from trying new things. Though I share my success stories here, my failures doesn’t make to the blog. But they are surely lessons learnt and I will never be repeating those mistakes again. I selected candies for this month and it is testing my patience too much. First I tried making honeycomb. The result was awesome, but I poured it into a smaller tin and it oozed out. Somehow I contained it inside the tin, but the paper I used for lining stuck to it. I had too waster all those paper stuck honey combs but still Sruti loves those bits and pieces which I recovered after breaking it. Next I tried making peanut brittle. This time I oiled the paper, the mixture came out perfect but again the brittle stuck to the paper. I tried a lot to remove the paper but couldn’t even remove a single bit of it. That is it, the whole batch got wasted.
