Caramel Cake

Caramel Upside Down Cake

I love reading books. Have I ever mentioned it before? I used to be an avid reader but somehow in the course of time I have reduced my reading drastically. Not intentionally but it just happened. I had a dream yesterday about getting locked up in a library and I spent the rest of the dream- you guessed it right- Reading! Yes, you read it correctly, I DREAMT about reading! So, I’m gonna get back to my reading habit. I have atleast 6 novels in my shelf that I’m yet to even touch. Anyone willing to join me in this marathon, please do 😀 As I was browsing for more books to buy(!), I realized I never posted the pics for a cake I made 3 weeks back. So here we are.

Maritozzi Con La Panna (Roman Cream Buns)

As I might have mentioned in a couple of places, I am not very good at baking stuff that involves yeast. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy baking breads or other yeast delights. I very much wish to be good at it. So in the pursuit of achieving greatness (ahem!) in bread baking, I had joined Aparna’s We Knead To Bake group on FB quite a while back. But being who I am, managed not to get involved or put in efforts into baking the monthly bread to fulfill what i had actually joined the group for and became a silent spectator of all the different breads she would post every month. I did bake a couple of breads but didn’t write a post about it. So here is my first blog post for the WKTB group.

New Year, a Neapolitan Cake and some History

First and foremost, wish you all a Very Happy New Year 2015!! Hope this year brings nothing but happiness and takes all your sorrows away.. A New Year means a lot of things to a lot of people. A new beginning, a fresh start, a new goal or just to make everything a little better than last year. I am no different. I am not one to take resolutions and have strict determinations. But I do hope to make a difference somewhere in any small way I can. Achieve a few goals and set a few things straight. And what better day for a little introspection than 1st of Jan right?

Mixed Nuts Streusel Cake

Hi, I’m back with another fabulous recipe from our Bake Along group. For last week, Subhashini chose an Almond Streusel Cake adapted from one of Martha Stewart’s recipes. Wikipedia describes Streusel as a crumbly topping of flour, butter, and sugar that is baked on top of muffinsbreads, pies and cakes. It is a wonderful addition to cakes and takes the taste and texture to a whole new level.

Although Subhashini has made the streusel with just almonds, I used a mix of Walnuts, Almonds and Pistachios. Walnuts are my most favourite ever, I can eat them all day 😀 So i had to include them..

Hi, so here I am again. Nothing much happening on this side of the earth. Baking now and then, cooking everyday (almost) and yet nothing to blog? hmm.. I do have things to blog, will get to it.
