There is so much to write on this blog that I really don’t know where to begin from. So many recipes to be posted, so many food tales to be shared. I don’t know why I have been so laid back and lazy in posting these days. I promise will try to be regular from now on. I know I know I can almost feel many of you staring at me for the next part of Baking Basics specially Chandu, but I promise its coming soon very very very soon 🙂
Today we what I have for you is a yummy cake that I made sometime back. We were doing a surprise birthday party for some friends of mine and the brunch menu was Chat, all heavy and fried stuff followed by a sinful creamy dessert, I had to make a cake and I was so clear I don’t want a creamy and iced cake. Gotta have a balance somewhere yaar 😉
As usual I tweeted for suggestions, started browsing and narrowed myself to two options making a crumble cake which is partly my own recipe, partly from Maunika of cookinacuury and a lemon ricotta pound cake. I had full plan set on making the lemon ricotta when Murphy played his usual trick on me and I didn’t find ricotta and hence ended up making the second choice – a pear and blueberry were the fruits I chose for the crumble and man I think the combo was made in heaven and discovered in my kitchen, it was absolutely yummm. Don’t believe look at this picture.
