Gingerbread Cake With Lemon Glaze#BakingBloggers

In India  molasses  is known as Kakvi.  Kakvi is the stage before the final process of making jaggery. I have used the store bought molasses . But, you can make this at home with jaggery or fresh sugarcane juice. Will make this soon and post recipe. This is often used as a topping to eat with sweet pancakes or soft chapatti for breakfast. But it's the first time I am using it in baking.  
This Gingerbread Cake With Lemon Glaze was hit at home and also my friends.  

To bake this use a a rectangle pan with height and a small pan so that this will get  a lift.  I used a 8 by 6 inches and 2 inch height  rectangle pan and it was right for this cake.
I loved this month theme of Baking Bloggers.  Let's make this Gingerbread Cake With Lemon Glaze.

Dry Ingredients
1.2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 Teaspoon Baking soda
½ Cup White sugar
2 Teaspoons Heaped Homemade Ginger powder
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
Wet Ingredients

1 Large Egg
1/2 Cup Dark Molasses / Kakvi
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Boiling Water

For the Lemon Glaze

½ Cup Icing Sugar
A Juice of one small lemon
1 Teaspoon Lemon zest


In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients and spices well. 
In a another bowl add the molasses,vegetable oil and egg, whisk well, now  mix in the dry ingredients a little at a time.  It will become a thick batter.  Now add the boiling water and whisk till it forms a smooth and lump free batter.
Pour this into a greased, lined and floured  baking pan and tap it well to remove any air bubbles bake at 180 degrees C for 35 minutes.
As the cake is baking let's make our glaze  
Mix all ingredients in a pan and place it on very low flame to warm it well and sugar dissolves. 
 As soon as the ginger bread is out of the oven 
pour all the lemon glaze and let it cool. Cut into slices and serve with ice cream or whipped cream. We enjoyed just as it is.
This was delicious and yummy.

Skillet Rosemary & White Wine Chicken Leg#Baking Bloggers

In baking bloggers, which is a group started by Sue , where in the topic for November month is baking in cast iron. I had purchase this lodge cast iron skillet many months back and had not yet used it. This theme gave me an opportunity to use it, thanks Sue for this wonderful theme.
Soft and juicy Cast Iron Skillet Chicken legs with fresh rosemary and white wine is so delicious, it's a hassle free, ready in less than 30 minutes! Just marinate the chicken and the veggies of your choice, pop the entire skillet in your oven and you will have tender, juicy chicken legs ! I have a small 23 cm skillet so one chicken leg with thigh can fit into it, added some halved red baby potatoes, a complete and power packed meal is ready. 


1 Chicken Leg with thigh
2 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary
¼ Teaspoon Sumac
¼ Teaspoon Freshly Crushed Black pepper
¼ Cup White Wine
A Juice of one small Lemon
Salt to taste
4 Red Baby Potatoes
1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

Wash and pat dry the chicken with a kitchen paper towel. 

In bowl mix in the lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, sumac, crushed pepper and salt to taste. Rub this marinade into the chicken well. Toss in the halved red baby potatoes into the remaining marinade and place them into the skillet along with the chicken leg.  
Pre-heat the oven with both elements on at 200 degrees. Before you pop the skillet into the oven pour in the white wine and bake for 30 minutes. After 15 minutes remove the skillet holding the handle with silicone gloves, turn the side of the chicken and potatoes, pop this back into the oven for another 15 minutes and its done.

Cheesy Twisted garlic bread is a great snack or appetizer.  I made this for our evening snack and they turned out so crisp and cheesy.   I had some leftover bread dough in the refrigerator, made these.  You can used any leftover bread dough to make these.

Kids will love them, this can be packed as tiffin for children or even as a travelling snack.  Its is easy and takes hardly any time to make.  Not much of second proofing.  These turned a little  more brown, cause I left them in the oven and went down for some urgent work and by the time I came and checked they had already turn this color so keep a watch while baking them.

For Baking Bloggers Sue of Palatable Pastime is our host and every month we get to vote on theme. For month of October we asked to bake with garlic as an ingredient.

Chipa Argolla#BakingBloggers

Chipa Argolla  is recipe of Paraguay.  This is a breakfast or a snack small cheese bread which has, two versions one  is called chipa the other is chipa argolla.  Chipa argolla is the popular ring shaped version.
  I,  believe that in Paraguay, the town of Coronel Bogado, which is the capital of chipas,  even hosts an annual festival of chipas. The word chipa comes from the Guarani language and it  means cake or bread.

These are a mainly prepared, given to family and friends   during the Holy Week of Lent. 
For Baking Bloggers Sue of Palatable Pastime is our host and every month we get to vote on theme. For September the theme is biscuit and scone recipes which are American based.

I, have seen so many recipes on net, but,  this  is a perfect, tried and tested recipe.  
205 Grams Sabudana Atta / Tapioca Flour
115 Grams Fine Corn Meal
60 Grams Butter - unsalted   
2  Eggs
65 Grams Mozzarella Cheese - grated
65 Grams Parmesan Cheese - grated
½ Teaspoon Heaped Anise seeds / Saunf  
¼ Teaspoon Salt  
¼  Cup Milk
¼ Teaspoon Baking powder

In the bowl, add the butter and the eggs. Mix for a couple minutes with electric hand blender. Incorporate the grated cheeses and anise seeds. Add the salt and milk, mix well . Then, add the tapioca flour and corn meal,  continue mixing until well combined.   Keep this  covered with a cling film to  chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
After you take the dough out from the refrigerator, add the baking powder and knead to a soft dough. 
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.  Line two baking trays, with parchment paper and lightly dust it with cornmeal.  Keep aside.

Pinch the dough into small balls.  Roll each ball into a rope of about 5 or 6 inches long and ½ inch thick. Bring ends together to form a small circle and press to seal. Place them an inch apart on baking sheets .
I made the first tray into big circles and kept them about 2 -3 inches apart.  Found that on baking they did not expand much.  
The next tray, made small circles,  see pic above.
Bake them for 20 to 25 minutes until slightly golden  and can  see tiny red spots on the Chipa Argolla . Remove and cool them on to cooling rack. 
These are crisp from outside and soft and chewy from inside.
