Carrot Halwa Blondie

Carrot Halwa Blondie

Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last month.We kept it low key and enjoyed  family dinner at our back patio, with array of our favorite dishes. I was looking for a dessert which echos the fusion of American and Indian taste buds. Thats when i  came across Carrot Halwa Blondie.It has all the elements of carrot halwa but instead of being Halwa, it is cake like,sweet dessert.I knew my husband would take a bite on it 🙂 Original recipe is for bar and uses 11 by 15 inch pan.I used 9 by 13.So mine was not a bar but it was more of moist cake which we liked. I also used Whole wheat pastry flour and coconut sugar for the recipe. I didn’t shred the carrots.I microwaved and coarse pureed it in blender.It was 1/4 cup more then the recipe asked for.I just had more carrots and i took a chance. Didn’t wanted it to go waste 🙂 PrintCarrot Halwa Blondie Ingredients2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour 3 leveled teaspoons double-acting baking powder 2-1/4...

Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake

December is a birthday month in our family.Every week there is one birthday.The biggest one is Jesus’s birthday,of course 🙂 Second to that,we celebrated my sweet hubby’s birthday past week :-).It is very hard to surprise my husband.Only way i can successfully (for the most part)surprise him is by serving the food,he has not anticipated.So this time,kids and geared up for  the big day.My son picked up “Avenger” plate to serve whereas my daughter couldn’t look past the princess.They picked up a gift and gotta birthday card for daddy 🙂 So,next big thing was the cake.I was mulling over the posts and internet to see what kind of cake i would make.In the midst of that,i asked him,(yes,i told him,i have hard time surprising him),so what kind of cake he would like?He answered,”Chocolate Cake,the old, traditional,BORING kind :-),which knowing him,somewhat translated into No nuts,certainly not when you can not avoid biting on it. No Coffee though we love the drink  but smell of coffee from cake is big NO-NO Coconut or...

Gammy’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

Gammy’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

I celebrated Mother’s day this year,a day prior.My sweet hubby treated us all at one of our favorite Italian restaurant, en route from Mickey Mouse world.I decided to switch from my regular order of Chicken Marsala,which I absolutely love to ‘Eggplant Parmigiano’ hesitantly.And I was not disappointed.It was light and delicious unlike my previous not so tasty experiences.We all were so stuffed that there was no room for dessert, so I told myself that once I get back to home I will make up for it. One of my all time  Favorite American dessert is scrumptious pound cake.I like this honest to goodness,very rich,soulful piece of heaven more than any other kind of cake or cookies.So when I checked my inbox and found this much  desired recipe for Sour Cream Pound cake from my dear friend Melissa ,I was thrilled.I am guessing it was the case of those telepathic communication I have read about, since i was expecting insanely good coffee cake or delicious donuts in my inbox :-). I know Mother’s day has come and gone for...
