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 […]

Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Cake

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. I have baked the Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Cake in a small bundt pan, but the recipe works fine in a loaf tin as well! The recipe yields a buttery-moist Raspberry and Chocolate […]

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 […]

Masala Chai Brownies

Chocolate Brownies With Chai Spices

My mother loves her tea, just as much as I love my coffee. I remember, when I was growing up, she used to drink about 15-20 cups of tea in a day! Gradually, I made her understand that tea isn’t any energy tonic and she shouldn’t abuse it so much. Although very resistant and stubborn initially, she drinks only 1 cup of tea nowadays. And she totally loves her tea-time. She wants it in her favorite cup and with her favorite cookie or a slice of home baked coffee cake. Occasionally, she drinks her tea with few pieces of dark […]
