Neapolitan Cake

This cake is something which I always wanted to try. The beauty of the three layers always caught my attention.. ❤ 

For those who do not know what a Neapolitan cake is, it is a cake with the 3 core flavours in all Neapolitan desserts- chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. And it is frosted with a white- pink icing. I used ermine buttercream or cooked flour buttercream because I find it less sweet, it has less butter than the AMBC or American buttercream which is loaded with sugar and butter and ermine buttercream is also more creamier. 😉

Fluffy Lime Yogurt Cake With Lime Whipped Cream (Egg-free)

They say trial and error is the best method to learn new things and perfect things. I can seriously vouch that this is the best way to learn things. I prefer to work with eggs because it is more fluffy, moist whereas eggless bakes are either too soft to handle or they are little dense. And substituting directly in place of eggs do not always give best results 😛

Pomegranate, Rose And Pistachio Meringues

Meringues are so unique and versatile… Made with 2 basic ingredients, it is a sure treat! I decided to give a slight middle eastern twist to my meringues by combining the middle eastern flavours of pomegranate, rose and pistachios. And the result, a modern twist on the age-old french classic. 🙂

Mango Fudge Cake With Mango Glaze

How could I possibly not make a cake using ripe, succulent mangoes during mango season? This is not your ordinary sponge cake but it is a rich, dense mango fudge cake. It is a celebration of mangoes and it goes incredibly well with hazelnut praline, so I made it once again for this cake.  🙂

Banana Walnut/Almond Cake (Egg-free)

After a lot of requests for egg-free and vegan cake recipes, I present my banana walnut/almond cake. The cake base is butter-free, egg-free and pretty healthy as it’s made with mainly wholewheat flour.  It’s very soft and moist for an egg-free cake. This cake can be made into a banana loaf as well by simply baking it in a loaf tin.

Chocolate-Tea Swirl Cake

As mentioned in my previous post, I had gone on a vacation to Ooty. Ooty is mainly known for two things- it’s cold climate and it’s tea! Not to forget the yummy homemade chocolates. 😉 Because we went by car, we could thoroughly enjoy the weather and the scenic drive. It was indeed beautiful- the misty mountains, green tea estates and tall splendid trees!

Malai Matka Kulfi (Indian Ice Cream)

Kulfi is a popular frozen dessert which is often referred to as the “Indian Ice cream”. Although kulfi is called an ice cream, it doesn’t have the texture of ice cream. It is more dense, rich and creamy which makes it all the more desirable. Traditional flavours include malai (cream), pistachio, kesar (saffron), rose water and also mango.

Orange And Dark Chocolate Cookies (Egg-free)

I just adore this combination! Orange and dark chocolate work exceptionally well together and compliment each other’s flavours. This classic combo has 3 basic ingredients found in every household (butter, sugar and flour). Next comes the flavouring provided by the orange zest and cubes of roughly chopped rich-dark chocolate. 🙂
