2 mins Strawberry Mug Cake – By MY DAUGHTER


Just like that I was busy with few of works, my daughter came and ask for baking a cake. I told do check out the recipe and prepare by youself. Intimes of doubt call me for help – But she never called me, with help of the younger one (lil BRO), she started mixing the batter. Just like that went and asked, “Any help?”. These kids where laughing at me and told, ” Never enter the kitchen, unless and until we call you”.
Finally this was result – 2 minutes Strawberry Mug Cake. I never imagined the cake would be so tasty, spongy and it melts in the mouth, proud of her.

Jack Fruit Idly


Jack fruit is one among the special fruits of summer. I use to have jack fruit, not to very often or I am not a fan of Jack fruit. But my daughter likes to the core, when she finds Jack fruit in the market, she urges to get it. Yesterday as of my daughter’s wanting and for a ritual as offering my hubby got Jack fruit. He got more the quantity of Jack Fruit, she had little and I kept the other in refrigerator.

Today morning when I saw the Jack Fruit, I thought of trying some recipe with Jack fruit and had a chat with my friend about this, she told me that her aunty prepares Jack Fruit Idly which would be yummy and also she guaranteed that not only kids even we would finish it in minutes. So I wanted to try it immediately.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #115 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
