Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling

Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling

I have been trying to motivate myself to make something without chocolate! I must tell you, it’s very difficult :D. Even these Peanut butter muffins with oat streusel that I baked yesterday needed some last minute nutella filling and chocolate chips sprinkled on top! My instagram feed is full of colorful fruity bakes for inspiration. I even bought plums and peaches to make something with them. But after few days of procrastination and not letting anyone eat them, we finally relished them the other day! I was actually relieved because now I wouldn’t have to feel guilty for not baking […]

The simplicity of plain cakes is delightful. I love a moist, soft, buttery plain cake with my morning coffee. I have so many coffee cake recipes up on the blog.

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.

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!

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 […]

I don’t like baking the same recipes again and again :D. I constantly have fights with mom because she is terrified when I enter the kitchen with something new in mind. But what is the fun in doing something you have already mastered. One should keep trying new stuff and upgrade themselves. I do revisit my tried and tested recipes occasionally. But I am all up for new challenges. Baking is some sort of therapy for me. Even if a recipe requires me to slog several hours at a stretch, I am still a happy person. The Peek-a-boo Cake is […]
