Buttermilk Biscuits

Standard

Thought of trying out something new for breakfast for kids. My kids wanted to have a dish which is similar to English and so tired my hands over this Buttermilk Biscuits. These biscuits are soft, fluffly and buttery. These biscuits can be served with breakfast or may be a tea time snack or may be a brunch. It was only few mins, there biscuits disappeared once when they are out from the oven. Give a try and enjoy with your kids. Let me share the recipe…

Eggless Orange Moist cake

Standard

Eggless Orange Moist Cake but I could call it a 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and a Diet Cake. As of now I would say that I am better in baking, thought of trying out moist cake. This is was my second attempt with moist cake and it was a big hit in family and among my daughter’s friends. As X-Mas season started, stay tuned for more cakes and cookie recipes.

I have used palm sugar instead of sugar which is good for diabetics, oil and orange juice instead of butter and egg which reduces the fat. And so I call this cake as 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and Diet Cake. Let us move on to the recipe…
