Applesauce is such an amazingly useful thing to have in your refrigerator!

Since my buttermilk-in-baking discovery, I’ve had an amazing string of recipe-successes while experimenting with bread dough. Similarly, applesauce is that one thing that has completely changed the way I bake anything sweet (cakes, brownies, cupcakes, muffins, pancakes etc.).  (more…)

Mangoes are in season!

I’m yet to meet someone who despises mangoes. How can one really?  For someone with a sweet tooth as intense as mine, desserts are the bane of our existence! Moderation, Special occasions are words we don’t find in our dictionary. But dessert cravings can be managed. A mango is all I need to forget about that chocolate cake (wait – did I say cake? gotta make me some of that now!).

Aamras is simply mango puree flavored with cardamom or ginger. That’s it. You can probably stop reading now since that’s all there is to this recipe! But if you want, I’ll write it out for you!

Hershey’s Kisses have got to be the cutest candies ever invented. Not only do they taste amazing (I mean, hello? That burst of chocolate in your mouth? Yauza!), but they also effortlessly add a certain cuteness to an dessert they are a part of. For lazy people like me, this is great because we don’t have to spend hours stressing over dessert-decorations!

Inspired from these intensely-chocolaty candies, I decided to make some cupcakes that will knock your socks off! With a basic chocolate cupcake base, I take it up a notch by stuffing each cupcake with a Hershey’s kiss. And then I frost them with an amazing frosting I discovered accidentally. Yep – have you tried combining buttercream and marshmallows and chocolate? You’ve got to do it right now – if you haven’t already!

The best part is that you really don’t need to stress yourself too much. You’re going to enjoy making these cupcakes – just as much as you’re going to enjoy devouring them!    (more…)

Coconut Mousse

Subtle and delicious coconut mousse made with vegan marshmallows, coconut milk and fresh whipped cream! A burst of tropical delight in your mouth!!! 🙂 Coconut Mousse Recipe | Instant & Eggless Coconut Mousse | Sweet Treats | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

Sometimes, I just want to quit my job, go some place quiet, and spend the rest of my life reading from my Kindle and eating coconut mousse.

This coconut mousse just transported me to that alternate universe. Good food does that to you sometimes, doesn’t it? 🙂

Coconut is one of those amazing fruits that not only tastes amazing in savory dishes like rice, chutneys etc., but also makes up for a fantastic ingredient to work with in desserts. The subtle burst of flavor in every bite of this mousse will leave you craving for more! As delicious as my airy chocolate mousse (both kinds!) is, I’m always game for trying new flavors. After successfully extrapolating the technique into making scrumptious strawberry and butterscotch mousse(s), I now use a similar method to make this easy coconut mousse. And what’s even cooler is that you could totally use vegan whipped cream, raw sugar and make a vegan dessert – if you so wish.   (more…)
