Snickerdoodle Bread

snickerdoodle bread

Too much of chocolate on the blog already! I sometimes wonder if the name of the blog should have been theloveofchocolate instead :P. I am completely partial for chocolate based desserts! I might as well take this name change seriously sometime! Until then, I have baked this Snickerdoodle bread for you guys. I love the snickerdoodle cookies! And everything else that has cinnamon in it! Cinnamon is such a lovely ingredient for baking. The best part is the warm, heavenly, inviting smell that engulfs the house when you bake something with cinnamon in it. I have been sitting with a […]

Carrot Coffee Cake

 I am not a Carrot cake person.I will never order it in a bakery. I am a loyal chocolate fan with a complete bias for Chocolate Desserts. I like carrots only in my mom’s gajar ka halwa. But I have been wanting to do something with pumpkins and carrots for a while. Both for the blog and for those of you who like such desserts. See, I am sweet like that :P. The carrots are so fresh and juicy in this season. I would be a fool not to use them now. But I am really not a fan of […]

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 […]

Drunk Chocolate Cherry Cake

Drunk Chocolate Cherry Cake

Any celebrations coming up guys?? This is a perfect cake for all those occasions! The Drunk Chocolate Cherry Cake is perfect to embrace the winters too. The two-tier Drunk Chocolate Cherry Cake is a delicious blend of dark chocolate and candied cherries that were previously soaked in Brandy for 3-4 days. The layers are then held together with a dark chocolate ganache. And I also wrapped a white chocolate cage around it for some added drama :P.   The cake tasted delicious and moist. And the combination of dark chocolate with the brandy soaked candied cherries was just so amazing. […]

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 […]
