1 Minute Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie

You know, I love to bake, in fact I love baking more than cooking but if there is one thing that I don't like to bake, it's cookies! Simply because I need to stand by the oven all the time checking on the cookies and keep changing trays! I have a small oven and I can bake only about 4-5 cookies at a time and hence baking cookies is my least favorite!

Chocolate Mousse Brownie

Today I have a happy indulgence baking! This is one of my most favorite recipe! Chocolates are my most favorite food (yes chocolate is a food to me!) and I love brownies, they are my weakness! When I was little, you could have probably kidnapped me with a good, fudgy chewy brownie! Them fudgy ones are my preference! 
This recipe makes an already lip smacking brownie even more insanely irresistible!

Ragi Semiya Upma | Ragi Vermicelli Upma | Finger Millet Noodles

I'm so dejected as I write this post. My favorite camera is broken! I've been using a simple point and shoot camera for all my pictures and it has served me well for 200 plus posts but now it's gone! My son has thrown my camera multiple times and nothing ever happened and I dropped it accidentally - just once - and it's broken! On the up side, my birthday gift from my husband is still pending so maybe I'll get a bigger and better camera as my gift!! Fingers crossed!

Today's recipe the Ragi Semiya Upma is a healthy breakfast dish. This is a wonderful alternative to the regular semiya upma. Actually my husband picked up this ragi sevai while we were grocery shopping and I tried it out and it came out very good. I've made this a few times and without the added masalas it tastes very bland. This is the way we liked it. So here's the recipe.
Also try the thinai sevai, tastes too good!

Eggless Whole Wheat Apple Jaggery Muffins

For all the cakes and cookies I bake, my kids don't like the sweet stuff! They are like their father! While my husband and kids prefer bajji and bonda for snacks, I prefer brownies and muffins. So to satisfy my cravings to bake, I bake mostly for others. My maid's family, my driver's family, my husband's friends and neighbor's get to enjoy on their birthdays and anniversaries free of cost!! Aside from preferring bondas and vadas, my family wants to eat only healthy stuff! So when baking for family, you need to bake some healthy stuff in between indulgence bakes! After last week's indulgence post, here's a healthy guilt free muffin that you can bake for your kids.

This is an extremely soft and moist muffin made with wholewheat flour and jaggery. We love this muffin and I'm sure you'll love it too!

Eggless No Bake Chocolate Chilli Cheesecake | Easy No Bake Recipes

So it was a special birthday of a special person in our family and I wanted to make a special cake! I always go for chocolate based cakes when it's time to celebrate and this time, it was no different! 

As I was pondering on which cake to bake, I came across this chocolate chilli cheesecake in the cadbury website. I have heard of and seen chocolate chilli cake/cupcakes/cheesecake recipes before but I never thought I would be making them since I never preferred cheesecakes. But of course, all that changed ever since I made the eggless mango cheesecake! I totally fell in love with cheesecakes ever since I had that mango cheesecake and I have been looking for an opportunity to make it again, in a different flavor!

Instant Microwave Fruit Cake (no eggs & no butter)

INSTANT FRUIT CAKE! If you have followed my blog, you know how much I love the instant recipes. So when I came across this one, it's only natural that I tried it immediately!

I love Christmas, I love everything about Christmas but most of all I love baking the Christmas fruit cake! The other day I was travelling in my brother's car and I was listening to some carols, it's ever green Christmas in their car! They play Christmas carols all through the year! Those songs put me in the mood for something 'Christmassy' and I tried this recipe and what an awesome recipe it is!

Whole Wheat Fruit and Nut Cookies

My most favorite cookie is the fruit and nut cookies from unibic. I can eats packets and packets of that! These cookies are similar to those cookies and it's no doubt my favorite! Also these are very easy and quick to make with the goodness of whole wheat, oats and flax seeds. I always get annoyed with store bought cookies since they are so frugal in adding the fruits and nuts! But here I can add fruits and nuts to my hearts content! When I made these cookies my husband was fasting and I tell you it took a lot of self control to keep some for him!!
