My kids wanted cakes, homemade chocolates, and cookies for the Christmas celebration at their school. I came across a lemon cake recipe in Vanitha magazine....they just used lemon rind and not lime juice...since I wanted the lemony flavor I altered the recipe to suit my taste.....Nidhi wanted cup cakes....so I just spooned them into my muffin tray without the paper cups.....also made some chocolate chip cookies.....
and my homemade chocolates....kids wrapped them .....and even took some pics for me which I have included in this post....coming to the lemon cake....it has no vanilla flavor....yes.....it is all lemony...I just sprinkled some chocolate chips on top before baking them.....after making the other goodies I ran short of butter....so I used vanaspati instead for the cake and it came out soft and spongy....you can also bake them in a cake tin...this measure yielded about 15 cup cakes.....also wishing Merry Christmas to all my friends.... I wont be blogging for a week or so as I will be visiting my parents and brothers....so wishing a very happy Christmas to all my friends out there and thanks a lot for the love and encouragement you all have given me.
