Victoria Loaf for my little one

J  ust 10 min of preparation and rest on the baking time!!! My  21/2 yr lil one would always stop himself by the cake section inTesco’s when we buy bread.. Poor thing , I would tell him  letz go home and I will bake u one… Dont know wot preservatives the sponge cake’s have got at the store…

But this time I kept up my promise and baked the cake as soon as I returned from the grocer. Victoria Sponge is the easiest I could do and very quick….. Ved did not allow me to take lot of clicks as he was desparately craving.. for more pieces..  I thoroughly enjoyed it.. baking and serving .. It has been an absolute pleasure…

Sabudana Vada | Sago Seeds Dumpling

L  ovely Weekend… With a picnic lunch at Virginia Waters Lake… A good 4.5 miles walk around the lake and enjoying the best of the british summers… on a perfect Sunda.y… Packed a few nans and roti’s from the birthday party on Saturday and made Kadai Aloo to go with it 🙂

Today’s post on Sabudana Wada is a creation out of no special occasion or treat. I m just on a spree in finishing the stocks in my pantry.. Thats when I came across this left over Sabudana . I love the way my momma makes Sabudana Khichadi… I havent reached her perfection point.. My hubby found my version not up to the mark.. though I tried a similar way… But not with the wada’s . Bingo!! Came out perfect and ideal as a starter or as tea snack . This Sago Seeds Dumpling hails from Maharashtra and is particularly made during fasting.

Madeira Cake with Strawberry & Mascarpone

Our friend’s daughter was turning 9 this year.. LIke every year ,we were thinking of picking up some present…But then suddenly I changed my mind and said.. NO.. I m making the birthday cake for her… as a present!! Fully excited and a bit worried too as to how the new aluminium mould would work.. Thanks to this lovely mould from India… It gave no trouble.. like most non -stick dooo… and came out perfect.
No Chocolate Cake this time!! This was the first thing I told myself.. when I decided on the cake..
Browsed a little while and boiled down to Madiera Cake..  .Undecided on the filling and topping I went on to bake the cake. Since I had lost touch… , after pouring the batter into the mould ,I realised tat it was sufficient only for half the cake 🙁  Had to repeat the whole process… ..
In the meanwhile , I decided on the mascarapone filling and topping with strawberries instead of buttercream frosting !!
