Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram – Quick and Easy Munch / Snack

I hope the name looks funny – “Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram”, since this snack was prepared by my hubby, during his bachelor days 😝, most commonly during the lazy times or with no pocket money, this would be their hunger food for sudden cravings with little job, easily available and less expensive ingredients. Recently when he was chatting about his good olden days in Bangalore more than 15 years ago, this resulted in the discussion of this recipe 😊.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #176 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Wheat Coffee Cake with Walnuts (Eggless, Milkless, Butterless)

Standard

As most of us are looking out for healthy recipes, but like to have desserts especially when it comes to cakes, who say no? So thought of making a healthy cake, this resulted in my vegan Coffee Cake with walnuts. Already I shared my Coffee Cake with Nutty crunch and this cake is very special and completely different from that as it has no eggs, no butter, no sugar, and no milk and prepared with wheat flour/atta.

This cake is very healthy dessert and good not only for weight watchers, but also for diabetes people. Also this tastes yum, and has the soft and fluffy texture which would be liked by everyone. Enjoy your winter by giving a try to this healthy and delicious Vegan Coffee Cake. Let me share the recipe…

No Bake, 2 Ingredient Molten Choco Lava Cake

Standard

Being a big fan of Dominos Molten choco lava cake, whenever we go for Domino’s Pizza – choco lava cake is a must in the list. I resemble being a kid, when I get Choco Lava Cake. I never ever share my lava cake even with my kids, even if I am not able to eat that moment, will have it later, but never share with anyone – that selfish moment.

Recently I got to try this Choco Lava Cake but in a unique manner – no bake with just 2 ingredients and just 5 mins. It was yummy, I have used Marie Biscuits, but you can also use any brand choco chips biscuit for perfect texture. Let me share the recipe…
