Banana-date-nut Bread


My husband and I go bananas over banana bread and it’s our breakfast staple at home. I have tried several versions of banana bread like this chocolate-banana bread, banana muffins, nutella-banana muffins. To be honest, this recipe is my favorite of all the ones I have tried to date. It’s vegan- no egg, no butter, no milk and yet so fluffy and moist. I have used part ‘whole wheat flour’ and part ‘all-purpose flour’ here, you can change the proportion to your liking. Here’s how I make it.

Glazed Lime Cake


I haven’t baked anything in yonks and was craving for something lemony since a week. I baked this glazed like cake for the first time 3 years back and we loved it so much that I wanted to try again. I’m usually very conscious while baking cake, I try to replace all purpose flour with wheat flour, white sugar with brown sugar, butter with oil but this cake has all sorta mean stuff- butter, white sugar, white flour and all sorta meany yum stuff. But it’s totes worth it. 😀

Chocolate-Banana Bread

Raise your hand if you buy bananas and wait for it to ripe just so that you can whip up some yummy banana bread? I’m raising both hands here! How many of you think that the rate at which the banana ripens is indirectly proportional to your enthusiasm for baking? It’s so true in my case. Some days I want to bake so bad but the bananas decide to test my patience and ripe at the sloth pace. That’s what happened this time when I bought bananas JUST to make banana bread and they made me wait hopelessly. bananabread Read More …

Nutella Star Bread

Around two years back, I attempted to make this bread for the first time and it turned out so well. It’s an art and this bread is truly a master-piece. I made it again yesterday with a dear friend of mine and we had such a great time making this bread. The first time I made it I din’t have the heart to cut or eat it but this time I couldn’t wait to tear them apart and eat them. You can also try making this bread with pesto or even jam too. I’ve always made it with Nutella and we love it. Here’s the recipe if you may wanna have a look. Read More …

Strawberry Crisp

vegan_strawberry_crisp I’m flooded with negative vibes sometimes and it’s really scary and stressful. I try to shoo them away by practising mindfulness. I do a lot of  gardening, walking and baking. It really helps me relax and therapeutic. I know it totally doesn’t sound anything like me but I guess it’s part of grieving. Last week I baked whole wheat buns and this week I baked this delicious dessert- Strawberry Crisp. Read More …
