Chocolate cupcakes!!!

I think there is no need to say for whom i made this!!!! To finish my large tin of cocoa powder many chocolate recipes will be coming up in this blog!!!

My daughter likes everything in chocolate flavour! Well my son is only 2 + now im wondering what his requirement will be when hes 4-5 yrs!!!

I saw these cup cakes in another blog but forgot which one and in that blog there was a link to the original recipe 

I didnt do the frosting but i topped my cupcake with vanilla ice cream.  I followed the exact recipe and it was soft and fluffy! :)

Mooli Paranta

Everyday i think what should i make for dinner sometimes i repeat the same thing twice a week. To avoid that i have made a timetable for the whole month! So every monday is parata day :) kiddos sure love it! This time i decided to make mooli parata.

I have been thinking to try it for a long time.. but never did get a chance.. I went thru Srivallis Roti Mela  i came up with a recipe which was a mix of all mooli parantas! LOLs!!!

i added  2 cups of aata, 2 cups of grated mooli, 1 tsp each of ajwain and til, salt to taste, little bit of red chilli pwdr and turmeric powder and kneaded into a dough. i kept the dough for 1 he before i made rotis. 


Banana Crumb Muffins & Banana Walnut muffins!

Do u know the muffin man the muffin man the muffin man the muffin man..

LOLs.. when ever i make muffins both my kiddos sing this :)

All Recipes is my fav website for baking. The main thing is that the recipe will have lots of reviews which will help to make thr original recipe better and healthier.

I made the Banana Crumb Muffins from this site last week and followed the recipe exactly, except that i used 1/2 cup of sugar and used oil instead of butter. It was so soft and moist and yummy. And another thing i didnt add the topping because i thought it might be very sweet.

When i made it this week i made it more healthier. I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and added 1 tsp of cinnamon. Still it was yummy and moist and soft. I sprinkled a lil bit of quick cooking oats on it. I also added 1/4 cup of walnuts and raisins this time. 

Altogether it was delicious.

Marble cakes and cupcakes!

I have been baking and grilling a lot now a days but unfortunately my camera is dead and my camera phone is not so good in taking pics.. By the time i wait for my hubby to come home to take a pic from his iPhone half of the thing is eaten by mu kids and then i think ok may be i'll post this next time... i have a lot of drafts and im wondering when im going to post all of this!!!

today my daughter told me lets make a cake together! Its really hard to resist a almost 5 yr old! :D

So i decided to make my first marble cake from scratch! i have been baking a lot from www.Allrecipes.com so i decided to go there and search for this recipe. And i think this is the perfect recipe

then she said she wants cup cakes.. So with 3/4th of the batter i made a marble pound cake and the rest i made marble cup cakes.. i even mixed a little more cocoa pwdr in one or 2 cupcakes to make it chocolate cup cakes and some into plain white cup cake. 

I followed the recipe exactly but reduced the flour by 1/2 cup as some of the reviewers suggested but kept everything else the same.
