Sourdough Carrot Cake

I made this cake first time more than 3 years ago when I first got the sourdough starter. I took it to work and everyone loved it there. But I haven’t had a chance to make it again until now. I saw the recipe in the King Arthur Catalog and it reminded me of the moist and delicious cake that I made years ago. Sourdough starter makes this cake very moist and there are no tell-tale signs of sourness or the addition of sourdough starter anywhere. I halved the original recipe and made 1 8″ round cake. Then frosted the…

Soft Wholewheat Bread

Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 1/ Day 2 Theme: Yeast Breads Dish: Wholewheat Bread Making homemade bread is quite satisfying. I’m not a pro at bread baking and I always follow the recipes to the T.

The only changes I usually make is to add wholewheat flour for a part of white flour other than I don’t take too many chances in baking.


Banana Yeasted Sandwich Bread

Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 1/ Day 1 Theme: Yeast Breads Dish: Banana Yeasted Sandwich Bread We are back to the regular weeking marathons this month.

He wanted to buy one a while back, but I was resisting the idea — didn’t want to clutter the kitchen with another appliance. But when it…

Self Saucing Chocolate Cake (Vegan recipe)

Happy Valentines Day to everyone. After posting the Mango custard yesterday, I thought I should also post something with Chocolate for Valentines day. Valentines day without chocolate is probably unthinkable for some, but history channel says that this association happened only recently even though the roots of Valentines day go all the way back to Roman era. Chocolate is a well known aphrodisiac, but the main reason for chocolate being the center of this holiday could be the candy companies marketing strategies. Whatever it might be, here’s another reason to enjoy our beloved chocolate. I saw this recipe in King…
