Choco Orange Brownies#BakingBloggers

Brownies are the quickest to make. Not too much of washing to be done. Just one bowl and that's it. Our friends whenever their visit is pre planned they will ask me to bake brownies for them. They love brownies, but, do you know I, am not a brownie fan. I love cakes that too without any icing, like to have them with a cuppa of tea or coffee.

3/4 Cup Butter
150 Grams Dark Chocolate chips - chopped
3 Eggs
1 ½ Cup Caster Sugar - I used Brown Sugar
¼ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 Teaspoon Orange zest
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking powder 1 tsp
100 ML Orange juice 

Mix all together in a bowl beat for 3 minutes, pour in a greased 8 x 8 inches square pan, and bake on 180 degrees for 25 minutes. 
Cool, cut it and enjoy.

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.

Strawberry Sandwich Toaster Cake#BakingBloggers

Welcome to this month's event of Baking Bloggers. Baking Bloggers is a group started by Sue , in which we are given a theme  or an ingredient and  we must  bake the a recipe with it.
This month  our theme is Baking with Small Appliances. It was so much fun trying to use small appliances and baking with it.  I have used my sandwich toaster to make these soft and quick Strawberry cakes.  
Made these for evening tea and as they out of the toaster, they were vanishing.  I had force stop them not to finish all since a pic had yet to be taken.  Did not use any topping for decoration since I,  used fresh strawberries to make them and had enough of flavor , most of all there were eagle eyes waiting... to devour them.

100 Grams Unsalted Butter  
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup All Purpose Flour 

1 Teaspoon Baking powder  
1/2  Teaspoon Strawberry essence 
5 - 6 Fresh Strawberries - pureed
Pink color few drops  - optional ( did not use) 
A Pinch of Salt


Sieve the flour with the  baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a bowl, add the butter and sugar, whisk until smooth, then add the egg and beat well. Next add the essence and mix it in. Add  half of the flour mixture and strawberries gently fold it in and mix. Finally add the remaining half of the flour mixture and combine until the batter is smooth.
Brush butter or oil on both inner sides (top and bottom) of the sandwich maker, then close it and turn it on to allow it to preheat it for about 3 minutes. 
Once hot, open it and spoon the cake batter in each well until full. Then close and bake your sandwich cakes for about 3 minutes.
After which you can open and check to see if they are done.
If you want them golden on both sides flip them and keep for a minute, I did that.
 They will turn a golden brown when ready.
When you bite into them they will have a light and fluffy texture.
