Easy double chocolate cupcakes.....


Is there something called death by chocolate!!! If there is I strongly urge you to make this cake to get the chocolatey ooey...gooey feel......I made this cake 3 times now....and it has topped the list of my favorites....actually it all started when my son (Cheriyan) wanted a chocolate cake so very badly one late Sunday afternoon and I was short of butter.....then I remembered that I had book marked this recipe and gave it a try.....it came out so soft and fluffy that it disappeared fast....and I had to make again.....one thing which I have found is that the cake is a bit low on sugar....so a topping is a must....I topped it with my own homemade chocolate sauce.....


I think it is best to mix the batter with chocolate chips rather than sprinkle chocolate chips on top (like I did, actually I forgot to mix in the batter, only after pouring it into the cups did I remember about them and when I made again.....I mixed them in the batter and it was pure heaven!!

Recipe source: blogs.babble.com
Ingredients:
All purpose flour: 2 cups.
Sugar: 1 cup, powdered.
Cocoa: 3/4 cup.
Baking soda: 2 tsp.
Salt: 1/4 tsp.
Milk or cold coffee: 1/2 cup.
Buttermilk: 1 cup (I added 1 tbsp of vinegar to milk).
Vegetable oil: 1/2 cup, I used vanaspati/dalda, melted).
Eggs: 3.
Vanilla essence: 2 tsp.
Chocolate chips: 1 cup.
Method:
1. Preheat oven, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
2. In your food processor or your mixie jar (the one which you grind dosa batter), put in the milk (I added 2 tsp of nescafe to the milk), butter milk (I added 1 tbsp of vinegar to the plain milk), melted dalda or oil, eggs, and vanilla. Pulse all this in the mixie until mixed nicely. Now pour this into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until combined. If the batter is thick can add more milk/water to make it creamy. Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks if you have any.

3. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins that have been lined with paper liner, filling them 3/4 full. Bake for 20 min. I got 24 cupcakes with this batter.

4. Serve with chocolate sauce or any cream icing of your choice.


Enjoy.....will be back soon.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
