Eggless Coffee Cake (Microwave Version)

Eggless Coffee Cake was something I had tried few years back. As I am not particularly fond of microwave cooking, I hadn’t attempted it after that. Recently, one of my friends spotted the picture of it in my Facebook timeline and asked for the recipe. This was followed by a few more requests. That’s when I decided to make it again. It took some time for me to recollect the source of the recipe but finally managed to find it. The recipe I followed is from Apy Cooking. I decorated the cake with coffee flavoured whipped cream and chocolate sauce….

Bacon Jam

I have always been drawn to trying out something new than preparing the usual menu. So I’m always on the lookout for that inspiration. This time, I was inspired by my little sister. During our chat session, she was going on about a unique jam she tasted. Bacon Jam. Though I’ve seen them on TV, I never got the opportunity to taste them. Naturally,it piqued my curiosity. As expected, next thing to do was to google for a recipe. I followed Martha Stewart’s recipe with minor tweaking. All of us loved it. You can use in sandwiches, burgers, rolls etc.

Beaten Coffee / Dalgona Coffee

We got married while J was doing a course. ‘Calling On’ friends was a routine affair. During one such visit to a colleague’s house, the lady offered to make some coffee, to which we agreed. I was surprised to see her returning from the kitchen with a cup and spoon and beating away. I couldn’t help asking what she was doing and pop came the reply, “I am beating the coffee powder for the coffee”. Huh??? Have heard of filter coffee, instant coffee etc..but Beaten Coffee???? Naturally I was intrigued. The result was a frothy light coffee that I thoroughly enjoyed That was years back, and in all these years I never really bothered to try my hand at making our Desi Espresso. A recent visit to our dear friends, the Mahajans, triggered my urge of attempting to make one. When I asked them the technique, they coached me and even offered to give me a little practice in beating the coffee. I must say they were good teachers The measurement given below makes enough espresso for 3-4 cups of light co
