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 […]

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!

The Hummingbird Cake is a signature southern dessert. It’s basically a banana and pineapple spiced cake with a cream cheese frosting. I baked this one for my parents anniversary. The eggless banana and pineapple cake was spiced prominently with cinnamon, a spice that some despise and i absolutely love! The layers had a dulce-de-leche mascarpone filling and the entire thing was frosted with a ready made Pillsbury cream cheese frosting.  And not to forget, the crunch from the toasted nuts! Each slice was so filling and scrumptious! All the flavours mingled beautifully!! The Hummingbirds probably fed on fruits and nuts […]

Whipped these simple yet delicious donuts for breakfast the other day! They came out so cute and pretty. I read several recipes for Baked Cinnamon Donuts on the internet and adapted bits from several to create my own. This one is a real simple recipe bursting with cinnamon goodness. On top of that it is eggless 🙂 I have heard several times that baked donuts never  taste like the fried version. It is partly true because all the recipes for baked donuts are basically adapted from traditional cake recipes. But then why won’t anyone love a simple, quick, eggless, non-fried, […]
