Vegan Meringue Kisses Baketitude

I’m not vegan.  I love dairy and I adore eggs. In any form. But I don’t particularly like Meringue Kisses. I love Pavlovas. Especially with a whole load of fruit. But these vegan ones, after two tries have converted me. They actually taste good. I never thought they would though. But I’m a believer now. Read More

Cookie Cake Baketitude

Cookies with no boundaries. Ginormous Cookies.  Birthday cookies.  Not cakes.  But cookies.  So apparently, cookie cakes have been doing the rounds of school children here in Mumbai.

Baked Gujiya Made Guilt Free_Baketitude

I adore Gujiya. I used to wait for Holi just just because that was the only time my mother would make Gujiya. It’s a painful process, it’s a painful process time consuming and you never make a few Gujiya. You have to make at least 6 dozen for the effort to be justified.  They are Read More

Nutella Sea Salt Brownies-Baketitude

Nutella is an indulgence at any point in time.  Nutella brownies are an other level of indulgence altogether.  Indulgent ,if you eat them once in a while. Sinful if you indulge often.  So that is why I rarely make Nutella sea salt brownies. They form a gorgeous, light brown, delicious, papery, crust and they are Read More

Donuts should be fried ,right? These ones, they are dark and twisty on purpose. They were dressed up for a Frozen theme birthday party . Yeah! Seriously. No ,you don’t have to fry them . No, not necessarily. You can bake them. When you want to eat more than one, you can’t fry them all.  Read More

Easy Pie Crust for Desserts-Lemon Tarts

Desserts. Super delicious and super essential.  I love chocolate but there’s something about citrus and butter and a well toasted , baked pie crust that brings magic onto a plate. My favourite dessert of all time would be a super zesty lemon tart-right now.  It is sweet, it is sour and its buttery. It’s satisfies Read More

Earl Grey Tea Lavender Bundt Cake

That cake. If I could have hugged it, I would have. I have been waiting for this Nordic ware Bundt pan for the longest time ever. My parents picked up my first nordic ware bundt pan for me and I had to flip a coin (because they could bring back only one) and unfortunately this Read More
