Eggless Chocolate-Coconut Fudge Cake...step by step.



I know I have not been posting any baking stuffs here, its not because I was NOT baking anything...its because I bake only my favorites which I have already posted here; like Hershey's best brownies, cappuccino muffins, chocolate chip cookie bar, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chip shortbread, coconut cake etc.

Lately I have been experimenting on cakes like egg-less cake, butter less cake...I tried baking with coconut oil and yes I kinda liked the result. I tried my favorite coconut cake with coconut oil and nobody at home even knew that there is no butter in it. Why this sudden love for coconut oil which is so abundant in this coconut rich place-Gods own country, Kerala.....it all started after coming across this article.

Coming back to this cake, I found this at Sangeetha's Kitchen originally from Home cooking, but I made little tweaks to suit my taste. The result was a very moist and fudgy cake, I actually increased the oil, used coconut oil and used fresh coconut scrapings and topped it with chocolate chips to satiate the chocoholic in me.

Recipe source: Adapted from Sangeetha's Kitchen, originally from Home cooking.
Ingredients:
Sugar: 1 cup.
Flour: 1 1/2 cup.
Fresh coconut scrapings: 3/4 cup.
Cocoa powder: 3 tbsp.
Baking powder: 2 tsp.
Salt: 1/4 tsp.
Water: 1 to 1 1/2 cups.
Vinegar : 1 tbsp.
Coconut oil: 1/2 cup.
Vanilla: 1 tsp.

Topping
1/2 cup chocolate chip plus 1 tsp flour.

Method:
Put flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.

Mix them with a whisk.

Blitz the fresh coconut with 1 cup of water in a food processor or mixie. (you can add the rest of the water to the batter to get a smooth consistency).

Pour the coconut oil, vanilla, vinegar into this and give it a mix. Meanwhile grease a baking tray and preheat oven to 180 degree C.

Fold this slowly into the dry ingredients...and fold till it is nicely incorporated. Add the rest of the water to make it into a smooth batter, you can add little more water if needed.

Pour into the greased baking dish.

Mix chocolate chip and flour (chips will not sink if mixed with flour)

Sprinkle on top of cake batter.


Bake for 35 min at 180 degree C or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. You can also make these in muffin trays or as cupcakes.

Enjoy the double chocolate coconut fudge cake....

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…

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, …

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.
