Easy Cake Recipe with chocolate frost and mango, strawberry topping....for anniversary celebration

I made this Yellow cake with chocolate fudge on our semi anniversary celebration:)

It was really awesome :)
It's said that little bite of chocolate makes us feel good that's why I prefer chocolate frost on it!!!!!!
Here is the recipe....

For Yellow Cake:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • For frost: 
  •  cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2.  Grease and flour cake maker.
  3.  Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt ,Set aside
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  5.  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  6.  Pour batter into prepared pans.

7.Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped. 
8.Cool 15 minutes before turning out onto cooling racks.


 Mix 1cup granulated sugar +1/4 cup cocoa +1 teaspoon vanilla extract + 1/4 cup butter +1/4 cup milk and boil this mixture. Frost is ready.
Decorate the cake as shown,
Cut little upper portion of the cake so that the frosting sticks firm. Apply frosting to the cake with knife and freeze it for about 1hr.
Now decorate the cake with the fruits you like. I used Mango and strawberry. 

Hope you all like my recipe....plz come back again... :)
Note Worthy TIPS:
While applying frost to cake the mixture spills on the cake boards and will ruin the complete preparation. To avoid this take wax strips/ Cut zip lock bag in to long strips and place them beneath the cake. remove these strips after you complete the decoration.
Always decorate cake with fruits/ nuts after freezing it atleast for 1hr.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
