IMG_2538

Merry Christmas:-)

As I am on vacation, I could not try out new recipes for holiday specials. Started browsing my drafts and saw a cookie recipe and cake recipe, so decided to post a cookie recipe for Christmas and cake for New year 🙂

Sometime back, I got custard for preparing fruit custard. After preparing fruit custard, I had custard powder left and was thinking what to do with it.  Hubby and kid liked the Walnut Butter Cookies, so thought of preparing some cookies with custard powder.

Preparation time : 10 mins | Baking time: 13 – 17 minutes

Category: Cookies

Ingredients:

Wheat flour – 1  cup

Custard Powder – 1/4 cup (I used vanilla flavor)

Light Brown sugar – 1/3 cup

White sugar – 2 tbsp

Baking Soda  – 1/4 tsp

Baking powder  – 1/2 tsp

Butter – 1/3 cup melted in room temperature

Milk – 2 tbsp

Vanilla essence – 1/4 tsp

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F and place the parchement paper/ butter paper/ Aluminium foil on the cookie tray and grease the cooking tray with cooking spray

My Notes:

  • Can use cookie cutter for desired shape
  • I prefer my cookies on the sweeter side, so adjust sugar according to your taste
  • Cookies appear chewy initially but they became crisp after they are cooled completely
  • Add extract according to the flavour of custard powder.If you are using butterscotch custard use extracts accordingly
  • I used both brown sugar and white sugar, instead white sugar can be fully used
  • All purpose flour/maida can be used instead of wheat flour
  • Oil can be used instead of butter
  • Cocoa powder can be used if you like chocolate flavour

Eggless Walnut Butter Cookies (Whole Wheat)

IMG_2455
Whenever I think of Cookies, I always remember the quick 1 minute eggless chocolate chip cookies. I have tried cookies with All purpose flour, but as a healthy change this time, wanted to try with whole wheat flour. When I was seraching for eggless whole wheat cookies recipe online, I came across  whole wheat cookies in jeyashri kitchen. I liked it, so I tried it with slight modifications. Crispy cookies became a great hit in our home, even my LO asks for one more bite:-)

A post after a longggg gap. When I checked the comments and messages, I felt extremely happy to have such sweet people around, who stopped by to ask if everything was ok. Thanku All :-):-)

Couple of months ago, I had posted Eggless Pancake using All purpose flour. As a healthy alternative, I tried with Wheat flour. Had few strawberries in the fridge, so added them, and the fruitj gave nice flavour to the pancakes. We enjoyed these Soft and fluffy Eggless Pancake for breakfast.

Cream Biscuit Microwave Cake

IMG_9256

Hurray! its my 100th recipe. I cannot believe I reached this special number so soon. I started this blog when my Little one was 6 months old. One day, hubby suggested I do something interesting, and spend some time away from everyday chores. That’s when a kitchen chef like me turned into a blogger. I thought I will end up posting something once a week, but constant comments and encouragement from Co-Bloggers, friends and family is keeping me motivated.

Biscuit cake – sounds interesting? I saw a recipe for this in a facebook group. The original recipe used Oreo biscuit, and I am not a big fan of chocolate. So didn’t try it for a long time. Recently when we were in the grocery stores, I told hubby about Oreo cake, and he asked why can’t you try with some other cream biscuit. I was like why it didn’t strike me!!! Since we were in the Indian store, I got Britannia cream biscuit and tried this cake after coming home. Believe me, it was super moist and tasty. I wouldn’t say its a no-sugar cake, as biscuits already have sugar 😉 let’s call it a no-extra-sugar cake 🙂

Cream Biscuit Microwave Cake

Preparation Time : 2 mins |  Cooking Time : 5 mins

Recipe Category : Dessert

Ingredients:

Britannia cream Treat Biscuits – 20 (I used Strawberry flavor)

Milk – 1 cup

Baking Powder/ Eno salt – 3/4 tsp (I used Baking powder)

Butter/Oil/Cooking spray – to grease (I used Cooking Spray)

Vanilla extract – 1/8 tsp

IMG_9253

Method:

  • Grease a microwave safe bowl/cake pan. I used a cake pan made of Silicone
  • Put the biscuits into the blender and blend into fine granules

IMG_9219

  • Add baking powder, vanilla and milk and blend well

IMG_9222

  • Pour the batter into the bowl and microwave for 5 minutes

IMG_9225

  • Take it out and wait till it comes to room temperature. Once it is cooled, you can slice and serve.

IMG_9262

My Notes:

  • Any cream biscuit/cookies can be used
  • Since I have used silicone baking tray, I was able to unmould easily. If you are using any other microwave safe bowl grease generously with oil/ butter
  • Adding parchment paper/wax/butter papers helps to unmould easily

Stuffed Brinjal

IMG_8708

I love the masala powder my Amma prepares for Vaangi Bath. I always wanted to cook brinjal with that powder as a stuffing. Have added additional ingredients, and prepared a new version of masala for stuffing. Loved this way of stuffed brinjal 🙂 If you get small brinjals, both stuffed brinjal and Ennai Kathirikai Kuzhambu are great dishes to try.

Stuffed Brinjal

Recipe Category : Side Dish

Ingredients:

Brinjal/Eggplant/Aubergine – 15 medium sized

Salt – as needed

Stuffing:

Grated coconut – 2 tbsp (Optional)

Oil – 1 tsp

To Temper:

Sesame Oil – 2 tbsp

Mustard – 1/4 tsp

Curry leaves – 1 spring

IMG_8702

Method:

  • Wash brinjals and make 2 slits to form a cross, leaving the stalks intact. Put the brinjals in water to avoid them turning black
  • Add oil to the pan. once the oil is hot, add onion and garlic, and saute till the onions are cooked. Add remaining items listed under “Stuffing” and saute till they are golden brown. Cool them and blend them into a paste by adding little water

IMG_8696

  • Add oil to the Pan, when the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add  brinjals and curry leaves. Cook on low flame

IMG_8699

  • When the brinjals are half cooked, add the stuffing paste and mix gently. Cover the lid and cook. Sprinkle some water if required. The stuffing goes inside the brinjal slits, and also coats the outside

My Notes:

  • Can add tamrind/ tomatoes if you want it to be tangy
  • Instead of grinding onions, you can also saute them directly

Eggless Dry Fruit and Nut Cake

IMG_8656

After adding walnuts to Wheat and oats banana bread, hubby and I liked the nutty flavour, so thought of trying  a cake with nuts and dry fruit.  I have read that dry fruit and nut cake tastes great when the ingredients are marinated in Alcohol for a day. I wanted to replace alcohol with a fruit juice, and remembered Eggless Mango cake, in which fruit pulp replaced eggs. This time, tried a cake by marinating the ingredients in orange Juice (that’s what I had in the fridge, so used it). I have to thank my dear friend Lori@ creatingbeautyinthekitchen for inspiring me to try a cake without adding sugar. Have used honey and dates syrup instead of sugar. It came out well, no compromises in the sweetness!

Sometimes we feel like having certain foods, and prepare them. But there are certain recipes which give us that urge to prepare after just seeing the recipe. This 1 minute choc chip cookies is definitely one among them. When I tried it for the first time, it was a flop show! Though I read the recipe well, I was not sure if it will cook after taking out of microwave. I kept for 1 minute and 30 sec, and it was burnt 😦 After two days I tried again. This time, the cookie cooked even after taking out of the microwave, and easy delicious cookie was ready in no time 🙂 I did not add egg to the cookie!

Eggless Mango Cake

IMG_8130

It is going to be almost a month since I had Mangoes. After eating too many mangoes, both in fruit form and dish form, I decided no more mangoes for this season. But day before yesterday, when we went shopping, saw fresh mangoes, and they were inviting! While eating the mangoes, Hubby asked me why don’t you prepare Mango dessert. Being a dessert lover, if I hear this, I can’t stop myself. But was confused what to cook. That’s when my friend called me casually and asked why am I not baking these days. I released it is been long time since I baked, so thought of making a Mango cake. I have never tried Mango cake before, and I wanted to try eggless version, as I have read that fruit pulp, yogurt and vinegar are great replacements for eggs. Google without you what will I do 😉 Referred many recipes, and liked the one by holy cow! vegan recipes. Made few changes to that, and here is my version of mango cake.

Eggless Pancake

We visit IHOP frequently, and always include pancakes in our order. I wanted to try Pancakes at home, when I checked in YouTube, saw the recipe put up by Joy of baking. Usually I do it in that way. Couple of months ago, I wanted to make pancakes for breakfast but I didn’t have eggs. As always lazy me first thought of doing something else, but after thinking for a while, I made some minor changes from the original recipe and was able to prepare soft, spongy, fluffy pancakes without eggs:) Since then, I have been making pancakes without eggs.
