Christmas and New year Collections

Standard

When it comes to Christmas, I think only of my Home town, a perfect place for Christmas with too many Christmas carousels, lights, crackers and music all over the nook and corner of the streets. Last year I have been to my home town, this time here in Bangalore.

Cakes and Bakes:

Ginger Banana Bread

Standard

As I have told last week, that I wish bake daily a cake or cookie or bread, but unfortunately last week both of kids were down with viral fever and now it’s me with high fever. Unlucky me, but still I hope I could bake atleast once in two days. Stay TUNED.

When I was searching for a bread recipe, I found out this Ginger Banana Bread. But I thought of inducing spices to bread, so did it.

The bread was yummy, spongy with little spicy taste in it. The quantity of spice powder depends on your taste buds, but when you add more the quantity of spices in it, I hope it won’t be like a bread. Let us move on to the recipe…

Oats Banana Cookie

Standard

Recently I came across too many cookie recipes, but I want to try cookie with oats and this resulted in this Oats Banana Cookie.

Oats Banana cookie was crispy, crunchy and soft. My son and hubby loved this cookie a lot. A perfect cookie for munching, when you are on diet, as I have used powdered jiggery instead of sugar. Let us move on to the recipe…

Since it’s Friday, I am taking it to Fiesta Friday #98  hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner after a couple of weeks.
