Chocolate Caramel Layer Cake

Chocolate caramel layer cake

Baked a Chocolate Caramel Layer Cake for my brother’s birthday. It’s a three layered chocolate cake with caramel frosting in between the layers and dark chocolate ganache all over. Also caramelized nuts on the top! Way awesome 😀 I know u would want to ask what is different from the earlier recipe on the blog- “Chocolate Cake with caramel buttercream and roast almond filling“. Well the caramel is different. This isn’t a caramel buttercream. It’s silky golden caramel made with condensed milk. It only takes 15 minutes to get this caramel together. The brown sugar lends it this gorgeous golden […]

Coffee Cake with a Pistachio Streusel

Coffee Cake

Summers have never been my favourite.The heat is just intolerable. Phew! I am a winter person. I love the winters. It is such a happy season. Wish we could have a shorter summer here 🙁  Anyways, I have been avoiding baking for a long time because my sister has been away. She has been traveling. She is someone who always appreciates and criticizes my baking. Hence, her presence is absolutely essential for my baking ventures 😀 She is returning tonight so thought of baking something for her. Jyotika loves muffins or a coffee cake with her breakfast. Her eyes light […]

Chocolate Cake With Coconut Filling Hello Fellas!!! What’s the highlight of any meal for u? The Dessert 😀 Isn’t it!! But we don’t always have this luxury with our everyday home cooked meal.

Tutti Fruity Cake

Tutti Fruity Cake

This is my dad’s favourite cake. He has been getting this cake from an old bakery since our childhood. He loves it. In my attempt to bake it, I had to make sure it tasted at least similar to it, if not better. It’s always a risk to bake something that can be compared to a classic. Phew!!   But luckily, he was totally impressed with it. I heard him telling mom-If she can bake it even better than his, why should I get it from outside! Voila!! That’s a huge compliment for me, because it’s really hard to get dad to appreciate […]

Coffee Streusel Cake

Coffee Streusel Cake

Usually we like our  everyday  cup  of coffee with cookies. But on some days you want something special with it 🙂 That’s the reason for baking this Coffee Streusel Cake. A coffee cakedoesn’t necessarily mean that it has coffee in it. Any cake that you can have with coffee is a coffee cake 😀 no specific  definitions for this one.   This one has a chocolate coffee flavoured streusel in it and has been baked in a Bundt pan. Streusel cakes look lovely when baked in a bundt pan, because you can appreciate the streusel much better in them. The recipe is a personal favourite and I have baked it several times before. Adapted from the […]

Chocolate layer cake

Chocolate Layer Cake

There can’t be enough chocolate cakes. The world needs more chocolate 😀 This one I baked for my brother who wanted a bakery styled chocolate layer cake with lots of chocolate cream. The chocolate cake recipe used here is the one printed  on the  cadburys cocoa powder  box. It results in this lovely and moist chocolate cake because of the mava/ khoya in it. I baked two 8 inch chocolate cakes with the recipe and sliced each of them into two layers each. And then the four layers were stacked together with lots of chocolate ganache resulting in this beauty!! It’s so gorgeous and […]
