Banana & Condensed Milk

Though banana bread can be done in different ways , one of the best ways is with condensed milk. To get the colour and add some sweetness I added molasses in it. But you can totally omit molasses from this recipe too.

This bread is not very sugary  as I didn’t add much sweetness to this bread. One way this bread is healthy with less oil and sugar. The other thing is you can serve this with a cup of coffee with extra butter or jam if you wish.

Where ever I go I order banana bread with my coffee. I always noticed that there is a huge difference from cafe to cafe. Don’t try from commercial type places as they put preservatives to keep longer.

I have so many different versions of banana bread types. Please browse in my channel or under the cake section if you like banana bread.

Chocolate Eclairs From Scratch

Hazelnut & Chocolate Slice

I couldn’t stop eating this slice. I love this a lot. Hazelnuts and chocolate goes really well with each other. Adding Irish cream makes it more rich in taste too. Make sure to roast the hazel nuts before using.

I have done this slice a lot of times. But if I make it at home I am the one who finishes it all the time. Once with out adding any cream I added only Irish cream. OMG the taste was awesome. if you are serving kids do not add any liqueur. You can add different flavours that goes well with the chocolate.

Apple Cake From Scratch

Fresh apples are better in cakes than the canned apples. I got many requests for fresh fruit cakes and thought of doing this fresh apple cake for them. I used Granny smith apples for this cake. You can use any apple variety of apples for this cake.

Try cutting the apples to thick slices to avoid releasing much liquid to the  cake. This  Can be served as a dessert or even to go with a coffee. If you like more fruit cakes look in the fruit cake section.

Blueberry & Custard Tea Cake

Blueberries are very nice in cakes. This can be served as a dessert too.  I always add extra blueberries in this cake.  If you want to serve this cake as a dessert use whipping cream or custard to serve. Its really nice with a scoop of ice cream too.

Marie Biscuit Pudding with a Twist

Marie biscuit pudding is an all time favourite in Sri Lanka. We enjoyed this  as kids  a lot. Still I love this. Its so simple and easy to make and also ready in 10 minutes.

There are things that you need to know. Adding an egg will not do any harm as the hot butter will cook the egg. In video I mean cooking as the curdling of the egg, That’s why you need to keep on stirring for a longer time while adding the hot butter. I have done another recipe before and this is the updated version of it.

The other thing to remember is that you can double the liquid for   covering the biscuits with out adding chocolate at all.

I have uploaded several pictures of the finish product and how to freeze in individual snack bags. You can always freeze this dessert in snack bags to please kids or your guests later too. Thaw it before serving or take out the day before and leave in fridge to take the next day.

Spongy Pillow Cake

No wonder why these beautiful cakes got this name. They are so spongy and very light like a feather. Its worth trying this recipe at least once to see how it looks like. I always add less sugar in my recipes. If you like to add more please feel frr to add more sugar.

I did this cake in small loaf pans. But you can always use a larger tray for this. This can be kept in a fridge for a longer time too. Other than that you can freeze the cake with out a problem.
