One - Bowl Dark Chocolate Cake with Butter Cream Frosting

One – Bowl Dark Chocolate Cake with Butter Cream Frosting

I made this for my son as he was requesting me to make his favorite chocolate cake with butter cream frosting. After several days of nagging I finally decided to make this as I wanted to try out a frosting idea I saw recently on Amanda’s blog… For the decoration she suggests # 32 tip and you can see her detailed tutorial here…I didn't have # 32 tip so I tried with my star nozzle. .. It didn’t come out perfect and I ran out of butter cream frosting at the last row … But somehow I liked the overall look of the cake, so I thought of blogging it… Was intended as a blog anniversary post last week but due to time constraints I could not manage it last week...  It’s been 6 years of blogging and thank you so much for the love and support you have given me :)...

This chocolate cake I have already posted a long time ago... I used to make this cake regularly and the best part is that it is a one bowl cake and uses oil no butter…  it’s a very  soft cake and you can frost it with Butter cream or with Whipped cream ....

Pork Vindaloo Recipe

How to make Pork Vindaloo

Pork Vindaloo, is a hot and spicy dish popular in Goa and also amongst Christians in Kerala. It’s a very spicy dish and is served on special occasions like Christmas, Easter, engagement and baptism ceremonies. Like in any other recipe there are many different versions of this recipe. Some recipes add fried potatoes towards the end of cooking; I did not do so but if you wish you can add cubed and fried potatoes towards the end of cooking.  Vindaloo tastes better when served the following day and it goes well with breadsPalappam, Vellayappam, Sannas and all kinds of Indian breads and rice.  And for those who don’t like pork you can substitute with Beef, Chicken or Lamb....

Happy New Year!

How to make Homemade wines

I made this Lemon Wine soon after I made Orange Wine last March.... At first just after the fermentation period, it tasted and looked like lemon juice and I was a little disappointed.... I kept the wine away and untouched for a couple of more months and again when I checked the wine, the pale color had changed to golden and the taste had changed drastically.... Now it has a unique zesty flavor of lemon mingled with the sweetness of raisins! Another successful wine experiment to add to my collection....
