Fruitcake Biscotti

Fruitcake Biscotti

Hello bakers!! I have been brooding over a box of dried candied fruits since eternity. Since Fruit Cake season is over, I decided to make a Fruitcake Biscotti! The Fruitcake Biscotti imbibed all the flavours of a good Fruit Cake. And the best part is that the fruits did not require any previous soak for months.  Light and crisp, the Fruitcake Biscotti tastes delicious with a cup of tea :). And the recipe is very simple to follow!   Traditional Biscotti recipes didn’t contain any fat. The dough was then baked twice, first in a log form and then after […]

Cheesecake Brownies

Another brownie post! I will tell you why ;). Homemade brownies are the best thing that can happen in your kitchen! They are incredibly easy to make and they always taste tad better than those brownies you had at that cafe! And that’s because the home baked brownies are richer, since you don’t have any artificial flavors in them and you can completely control the quality of chocolate that goes in! These Cheesecake Brownies are perfect for those times when a standard brownie just doesn’t seem indulgent enough. The dense fudgy brownie base is topped with a creamy sweet cheesecake […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge (No Bake)

Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge

When I was a kid, my mom used to make chocolate fudge for us all the time. She would mix condensed milk with Horlicks, Bournvita or Drinking Chocolate, whatever she had on hands. And then add lots of nuts! I would always get to lick the bowl and enjoy some even before it set in the refrigerator :D. She would then divide it equally amongst all three of us :). Our mom has always spoilt us with her brilliant cooking. She can stay in the kitchen for hours and keep cooking treats for us. I think I get my baking […]

I have always known that Raspberries and Chocolate are amazing together, but so far haven’t been able to grab raspberries at our local stores. Luckily, a friend at work handed me these beautiful candied raspberries the other day. I didn’t think twice about baking this delectable Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Cake. The simple, no-mixer recipe yields a super-moist chocolate chip cake with bursts of raspberries in between.

Tiramisu (Eggless)

Tiramisu Eggless

Tiramisu is a popular coffee flavoured Italian dessert.  In Italian, Tiramisu means “Pick me up”.  The legendary dessert tastes so heavenly that it can actually “Pick you up” from the darkest of slumbers. The refreshing and dreamy tasting Tiramisu is like a Trifle pudding comprising of distinct layers.  The bottom layer is formed by espresso coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuits. A fluffy liquor spiked mascarpone cheese and cream mixture forms the next layer. And lastly, cocoa or shaved chocolate makes the final impression! Most traditional Tiramisu recipes use raw eggs in the mascarpone filling to give it a thick and creamy […]

And the combination of dark chocolate with the brandy soaked candied cherries was just so amazing. […]
