Sunday Chats - 5

Hello and hope you all had a wonderful week! Though mine was pretty bad! was down with a really bad chest infection and fever and body-ache.

But, this cake made me better and cheered me up pretty fast. Yesterday, I became a year older and my kids surprised me with this at night. Really, birthdays does make you very special; even if you are ill and such pure tender love will make you glow inside out. And believe, me I really felt so good more than I felt in about 3 days!

These days, my hubs tell me that I am very clumsy (well, that is not my fault entirely; its the ageing factor that is to be blamed, ha!) I dropped my clutch purse a couple of times while walking in the city along with my credit cards, drivers licence etc etc .....and since poor hubs was behind me; he picked it up and later gave me and warned me to be careful....but the same thing happened again in the next couple of days. Being a soft spoken person (I am the loud kind; opposites attract, wink! wink!) he again gently reminded me that I am being clumsy and to take care of my any wife I also, smiled and said ya, I will.....and guess what he got me for my birthday.....A Sling Bag! and that really made him a happier person as now he need not worry about myself losing my clutch purse. His thoughtful gift will make my hands free and my belongings safe while I walk about the city.  I don't know whether it is my children's brain behind this or entirely his.

Talking of birthdays and cakes; have you tried my pressure cooker cake  yet?? Frankly, I was astonished at the texture of the cake when made in 8 inch round pans. The cake was so soft yet sturdy, sort of pound cake-like and for my birthday, I had promised my children that I will bake for them in round pan and maybe frost with chocolate butter-cream, but then sometimes things does not go the way I plan; but do end up in a better way like the cake above in the picture.

Thank you for the love and support you give me.

Have a wonderful week ahead!

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
