Baked Sweet Potato

Sweet, sweet potatoe are at the top of nearly everyone's healthiest foods list. One baked, medium-sized sweet potato contains 438% of your daily value of vitamin A (a white potato contains 1%), 37% of your vitamin C, and some calcium, potassium, and iron too.

Today was my baking day, so I kept these potatoes in the oven till all my baking was over and voila you have these healthy and yummy sweet potatoes.


3 Large sweet potatoes, unpeeled
3 Teaspoons Butter
A pinch Black pepper for each sweet potato

Heat oven to 180° degrees. Pierce each sweet potato several times with the tines of a fork. Place each sweet potatoes on foil and seal them individually. Bake until tender, about and hour and a half. Make a slit in the top of each sweet potato. Top with 1 tablespoon of butter and season with the salt and pepper.

Mixed Cereal Upside Down Pineapple Bundt#BundtBakers

This month the event for Bundt Bakers our host  is  Felice Geoghegan.The theme is "Breakfast Cereal Bundt Cakes".

This is a fantastic recipe to use up all the leftovers Breakfast Cereals in your pantry. It's such a forgiving recipe, can use any breakfast cereals. Just keep in mind the measurement of the same. I have adapted this recipe from here. Took the idea  and made it my way and it turned out superb. This recipe is a keeper.

I had 25 grams of Chocos, 30 grams of Muesli and about 2 cups of Cornflakes. Just blitzed them in a blender jar to a fine powder, measured it, for this recipe you require 1 cup, and the quantity was just right. All leftovers finished. In the freezer I had fresh pineapple that was cooked with little brown sugar, cleverly thought of making an upside down pineapple cake.. ta da those leftovers too finished. So don't you think this is a great recipe. 
1 Cup Powdered Cereals
1 Cup All-purpose flour (
Teaspoon Level Baking powder
Teaspoon Level Baking soda
A Pinch of  Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla essence
¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
½ Cup Packed Brown sugar
½ Cup Homemade Applesauce 
¼  Cup  Fresh Yogurt
1 Large Egg
¼  Cup Milk
1  Cup Chopped  Pineapple

For the Pan
5 - 6 Pineapple Slices - cut into halves to fit the pan 
¼  Cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Heaped Butter
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. 
Place cereals in a food processor and pulse until the cereals is finely ground (but it's ok to have some  small chunks or coarser crumbs). If you get more or less, measure out 1 cup.
Gently stir together the cereal crumbs, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, applesauce, yogurt, egg and milk.
Pour half the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir gently to combine, then add the other half and stir until just combined (careful not to over-mix). Fold in the chopped pineapple. Let batter sit for 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, grease  a 8 round bundt pan. Place  the butter  and brown sugar into the bundt pan and on low flame let the butter melt, as  soon as the butter melts, place it aside to cool.  

When it cools arrange the sliced pineapples  in the pan. 
Now pour the prepared batter into the pan,then bake it for 40 - 45  minutes, or until a knife comes out mostly clean when inserted into the middle.
Let cool after 3 to 4 minutes then immediately unmold it into a serving plate. 
 Slice it and serve warm. 
 This was so deliciously soft and moist.

Baked Kabak Mücver#BakingBloggers

Zucchini is called  kabak  and  Mücver is a fritter in Turkish.  This  Kabak Mucver is  similar to a pancake, made from grated zucchini, potatoes, egg, onion, dill, cheese and flour. You can enjoy this  as a main course  for dinner  or  a light lunch or as an appetizer
This makes a perfect meal, brunch, lunch or dinner. The spice level in this recipe is just right..perfect.   In my view do not increase the spices, it will ruin the taste of dish.
Serves 4

1 Large Courgette/Zucchini
1 Medium Carrot
2 Medium Potatoes
1 Medium Onion - finely chopped
3 Large Eggs

3 -4 Tablespoons Grated Cheddar Cheese
3/4  Cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Heaped Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Fresh Curly Parsley - finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Fresh Flat Parsley - finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill - finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Dried Mint
¼Teaspoon Red Chilly flakes
1 Teaspoon Level Baking powder
½ Teaspoon Level Salt
¼ Teaspoon Level Black Pepper powder


Preheat the  oven to 180 degrees C.
Grease an 8 inch pan with oil well, keep aside.
Sieve  the flour, baking powder, add  the dried mint, chilly flakes, salt, pepper and mix,  keep aside.
Grate the zucchini , carrots and potato.
In the large bowl add the grated veggies,  finely chopped onion. Mix the ingredients together and now add the cheese, parsley, dill, mix them too.
Beat 4 eggs and pour this over mixture  and stir everything together.  
Stir  in the sieved  flour  till it is well combined.
Pour the oil over the mixture and  give it a good stir.
Pour this over the greased pan and spread it to the edges to make the thickness as  even  even as possible all over. 

Place the pan in the  pre heated oven and bake for around 40 - 45 minutes.
To check for doneness, the sides will start to leave the sides of the pan and insert a toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean take it out of the oven.
Run a offset spatula around the sides. Let it cool before cutting into slices. 
Enjoy this  warm, with freshly set  yogurt on the side and a soft dinner roll or bun. 
It's a  change from the normal meal that you  have and  so satisfying, you will love it.    This Turkish  baked  dish was  loved by my hubby too!
My Notes
Any leftovers, just heat it in the Air fyer at 180 degrees C for 3 to 4 minutes or Microwave it for a minute.
