Two Tone Mondrian cake

This is a colourful cake that I love to bake when ever I can.  Making this two tone cake is really simple and is really a bit hit a any tea party or even for a cafe. It tastes so yummy and the condensed milk I used to glue the cake makes it Devine

Sometimes you might think that this is a very complicated cake. Not really. I have given very clear instructions to do it . The other change I made to this  is using a mirror glaze than a usual chelate coating. That actually makes this beautiful cake looks really beautiful and elegant.

Chocolate is a good treat for any one at any time. You can do this for a birthday cake too. Try making several layers to make it more attractive.  You still can do a mirror glaze on to or even a chocolate ganache.

My daughter was giving very good complements to me all the time I make this cake. I always freeze the left over cakes  for future use, If you  freeze them in individual bags you can thaw as you need them.

125g Butter
– 120g sugar
– 80g Plain Flour
– 70g Corn Flour
– 4 Eggs
– 2 Table Spoons of Cocoa Powder
– Vanilla or any other Flavour

For The Mirror Glaze:
– 100g Milk Chocolate

– 40g Condensed Milk


Simple Rainbow Bundt Cake

Kids birthdays and colourful cakes , something I used to do all the time when my kids were little. I use the do this rainbow cake in different ways and I thought I should share the recipe. You can do this in different styles of cake pans too. The cake look very elegant and kids will love it for sure.

I did  this recipe for years and years . Recently when I was looking for another recipe I found it hidden between two pages. I thought I should do it once for you all.

You can decorate this cake with butter cream . Cut the cake in to several layers and sandwich with butter cream too. It will give a higher  cake too. If you want to do a larger cake try multiply it to suit your needs.

Banana Upside Down cake

To please a crowd is not that easy. We have to look at the budget and also the quality. This banana up side down cake  cake cost less and gives a nice flavour plus an elegant look. I did this cake to serve 10 people. So if you doing for few try doing half of the recipe.

I calculate the cost and its about 10 dollars to please 10 people. So you have to ask your self  whether I make one or buy out side. To buy something like this you have to pay at least 30 dollars. All my recopies are guaranteed try this for an occasion and let me know the results too.

If you would like more sweetness you can always add extra sugar in this recipe. If you want to more syrup to go through the cake add another 50 g butter to it.  When fruits are in season try doing something like this. bananas re so nice when you bake.

Do Nothing Cake (So Simple to make)

If you don’t like to worry about making cakes try this moist and delicate simple cake. Its so simple to make and the topping is really simple too. The taste is awesome and I am sure that you are not going to stop eating.

After making this cake on a Sunday I took several pieces to work on Monday.All my friends were asking how I made that. I promised to to give the recipe but to tell you the truth I am posting the recipe may be after 4 months. 🙂 Hope they will grab it. Shh………

This cake goes well with a cup of coffee but I really prefer to serve this as a dessert because of the moistness and the richness. The nuts and the condensed milk on top of this cake makes this such a rich but simple cake. The nutty flavours coming out from the pistachio gives a unique taste to this.

If you like you can always add any kind of a nut to this cake with out a problem. I like to serve this cake with hot custard or cold to make it melt in mouth after a meal.

Lemon Butter Slice

I made this lemon butter slice for sharing at a BBQ . This was a hit. When Lemons are in season try this recipe for a change and to use all the lemons. 🙂 The texture of the slice was  very beautiful, soft and some times I felt like calling this a lemon mud cake slice. It had the texture very close to a mud cake.

The tangy flavour of the lemons made this slice to be a hit. You can serve this as a dessert too. I think hot custard with lemon juice in it will make this slice more decadent for a dessert.

Instead of lemons you can use limes or oranges too. I think the pineapple juice will be nice too.

When you  bake this make sure to bake the slice only 30 minutes. Donot bake more than that.


This is how it was when taken out from the oven

I did the icing on top
Leave the icing to set.
Cut in to pieces.
Sprinkle more icing if you wish.

No Oil Coconut Sugar / Hakuru/ Jaggery/Cakes.

The coconut sugar is becoming very popular these days and I thought of adding coconut sugarto cup cakes and do a recipe. The redipe is with no oil or butter too. I

This can go dry quickly and I recommend to have it the same day or when you are mixing try adding 3 tablespoons of milk to it to get the consistency right. If you dont mind adding butter try adding 75 g  butter to get it well moist.

Coconut sugar is not very sweet. So if you like it very sweet try adding some brownsuar with the coconut sugar for more sweetness.

Chocolate & Almond Cake

This chocolate and almond cake is  very rich in flavour. This can be served as a dessert or with a cup of coffee or tea. Though I finish this with a ganache you can serve this with out too..

Adding whipped cream or just plain fresh cream will make this cake a nice dessert for an special occasion.

Apple & Almond Bread from scratch

Apple and almond is a good combination when baking cakes or loaves. It gives a nice and dense cake to go well with a cup of coffee or tea. I added a bit of bicarbonate of soda to this cake to lift a bit.

To make it healthy I added less sugar. If you like more sweeter  bread add more sugar.

Almond meal gives nice fluffy texture to breads or cakes. The pureed apples gives a tangy flavour as well it moisten the cake really well.

This cake is freezer friendly and if you like freezing the cake try slicing to size you like and add in to individual bags and freeze them for future use.

Lets bake the bread

Almond meal or almond flakes or kernels are  very nice in any cake. I use flakes always to decorate the cakes but some times I add in to cakes too to give a bit of crunch to the cake.  This is a very soft and a moist cake that any one will love to have.

The chocolate hive and will take you to another world when you enjoy this with a nice cup of coffee or tea. If I tell you this a very rich and a beautiful cake even for special occasion. Make sure to add the best quality chocolate to get the right taste and the luxury look.
