Coconut cream and Self rising flour Cake

I'm very new to baking, till now I made few muffins, cup cakes and one anniversary cake. I  never tried cookies, I will give a try next time. Today I made an experiment with cake and I was really surprised to see the results of my culinary experiment (Though I used to do adventures in biology lab, I never got this much perfect results!!!;)) The cake came out really good.

Here is the recipe,
self rising all purpose flour: 3 cups
salt-1/2 tea spoon
sugar-one and half cup
coconut cream (sweetened) ----1cup
vanilla essence-2ts
Milk enough for mixing dough
Butter- 1/2 cup ( I used Olive oil-1/4cup)
Nuts and resins-optional

  • This mixture will perfectly bake in 9" baking tray.
  • Take a baking tray and grease it with oil and dust with flour.
  • Now take sugar, salt and flour in a separate bowl and mix them.
  • In another bowl brake open eggs and beat them while adding milk and vanilla essence.
  • Heat the Coconut cream and butter until it becomes liquid under medium flame/ microwave for 30 sec.
  • Wait until the cream cools down.
  • Now mix the cream mixture with milk& egg mixture and pour it on to the flour & sugar mixture.
  • Keep stirring the mixture until you won't find any lumps.
  • Mean while pre heat the oven at 350F.
  • Pour the cake mixture on to the baking tray, decorate with nuts & resins(optional) and bake for 15-20 min.
  • Check the cake by inserting a knife into it, if the knife comes out clean then you have baked for perfection, else continue baking for few more minutes.
  • When the baking is done, remove the tray from oven and let it cool to room temperature and turn upside down to get the cake out of the baking tray.
  • Enjoy this fluffy sponge like cake as a perfect tea time snack.
I'll cut this cake when my hubby arrives home from office, watch for more pics then.

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.…
