Chocolate Sponge Cake – No electric mixer – make in the pan and bake in the oven

I am not surprised if you feel too lazy to take out all the necessary equipment to fix a cake sometimes, worrying about all the washing and wiping would be waiting!

So, why not try this recipe to save your day! Just call this, a ‘lazy cake’ because you don’t have to use the electric mixer or the mixing bowl at all. Instead, you just have to cook all the ingredients in a pan. The batter comes out creamy and silky smooth and bakes a super moist and incredibly delicious cake ever! You don’t have to ice this cake because it is perfect as it is.

This cake cannot go wrong, so do not worry. Just relax and fold the ingredients together and pop the batter into the oven. I baked this cake under 160C instead of usual 180C given the fact that the batter is a little too runny and also to achieve a more moist texture in the cake.

Tip: If the top of the cake is already browned and the middle is under cooked, cover the top with a baking sheet or just a blank-sheet and cook further 10 minutes

Ingredients needed:

Self-raising flour200g
Margarine or butter200g
Sugar200g
Cocoa powder2tbsp
Salt3 pinches
Baking powder1/2tsp

  • In another pan heat water and add cocoa powder and salt. Stir under low flame until cocoa powder blooms. Pour into the pan with butter and sugar and give a good mix
  • Beat eggs with a fork until frothy and add to the pan
  • Add flour and baking powder together and drop to the pan.
  • Mix all together until a smooth batter is formed
  • It is this easy you see!

Eton Mess – Very British & Very stylish!

Much loved for its finest taste and luxury appearance, Eton mess is a very popular dessert in the summer season in England and believed to be served at the annual cricket match at the Eton College in the late 19th century, where it got its name!

Who can resist this indulgent, sweet strawberry dessert? The occasional crunch of the meringues in the silky smooth cream, drenched in the sweet strawberry sauce and the taste of fresh juicy strawberries, make it a heavenly treat in the warm summer months, where the strawberries are in abundance.

The best news is that it takes only a few minutes to whip it up! Gather the ingredients needed and it’s just whipping the cream and wrapping all in it! Then, grab a spoon and let your taste buds go dancing!

Serve on a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or just decorate a cake with it to give an absolute luxury taste and appearance!

Ingredients needed:

Juicy strawberries
For the strawberry sauce
Juicy strawberries200g and a cup full for garnishing
Sugar3 1/2 tbsp
Lemon juice1 tsp
Water1 tbsp
For the whipped cream
Double cream – whipping cream200ml
Icing sugar3 tbsp
Lemon juice3 drops
For Meringues
Buy a packet of good quality meringues from a supermarket

Let’s whip it:

1st Step: make the strawberry sauce

Strawberries, lemon juice, sugar
  • Place strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and water together in a pan and heat up gently until the strawberries are softened and floating in a sauce. This will take about 10-15 mins.
  • Send the sauce through a sieve to get a clear liquid without any seeds
  • Keep aside to cool.

2nd Step: Whip up the cream

Eton Mess will be a messy and an undesirable lump if the cream is not whipped into perfection. It is very important to place the cream and the mixing pins in the fridge until needed and wipe the bowl clean and dry.

  • Take the cream and mixing pins out of the fridge and immediately pour cream into the bowl
  • Now start whipping at medium speed and gradually increase the speed to maximum. You will notice the cream thickens while mixing rapidly for 3/4 mins
  • Add icing sugar while beating in full power
  • Add lemon juice
  • Beat until stiff peaks form. When you lift the pins, the peaks must not drip but stay stiff and firm
  • Check the sweetness and add a bit more icing sugar in, if you desire to take the sweetness a little further

3rd Step: Assemble – the best part!

  • Slice a cup full of strawberries and drop into the cream
  • Add some of the strawberry sauce
  • Crush some meringues and drop
  • Mix all together
  • Decorate with more strawberries, strawberry sauce sprinkled on the top and meringue scattered on

or

  • Take a tall glass and drop chopped strawberries, then whipped cream and top it up with strawberry sauce. Continue the same layers until you reach the top.
  • Decorate with a sprig of mint
  • Place in the fridge for 2/3 hrs and serve chilled
  • Delicious!

Best Chocolate Brownies -Blitz In The Blender And Baked To Perfection

This is the easiest and the yummiest Chocolate Brownies I have ever made! I mentioned “easiest” here, because the batter is made in seconds by dropping all the ingredients into a kitchen blender and blitz together just for 5 seconds!

Originated from the United States in the 19th century, Brownies are crispy and crackly on the top, fudgy in the centre, chewy and caky at the same time. It is a cake and it is not! The difference is no baking powder or self – raising flour are added, so the batter does not rise. Instead, it becomes chewy and fudgy while baking.

So, let’s make these beauties and serve them around, at tea time! Or you can drop a few on top of vanilla ice-cream and serve with a little dash of chocolate sauce to make it a gorgeous dessert!

You can also, drop them into a transparent bag, tie a ribbon and make a pretty gift for a friend! Once you made them, serving ideas will come flooding! So, let’s get ready with the ingredients and give it a try;

Trifle Pudding – A yummy, fruity treat for Any occasion, Any season

Enjoy making this beautiful Fruit Trifle Pudding, tossing any seasonal fruit and add extra colour to any occasion!

The glorious appearance and the delicious taste in this dessert is a real winner among any other yummy treats. The usual traditional English Trifle Pudding has a generous amount of whipped cream, which I deliberately avoided and added custard cream instead. This, in turn, gave this pudding a lighter texture so that you won’t feel too heavy after tucking into it!

Pineapples alone give a distinct taste and flavour to this pudding. So, remember to add a ripped, juicy pineapple along with other fruits.

Also, make the sponge cake, Jelly in two colours and the custard cream, on the previous day to make the whole process easier. I have given the recipe of the sponge cake below, which is the best choice for this pudding. Do not use the usual butter cake/pound cake/fruit cake even if you are tempted because they tend to crumble and spoil the original delicate taste. The sponge cake stays neat and nice, absorbing the juices and contributing a great deal to the overall taste.

Let’s see what are the ingredients you need;

Sponge cake (thinly sliced) Recipe given below1
Pineapple (stewed) Recipe given below1
Condensed milk2/3 tbsp
Custard cream (Vanilla flavour)-Make according to the
instructions given in the packet
2 mugs
Strawberries, apples, grapes (red & green), raspberries, blackberries, cherries, mangoes or any other fruit
(If you take bananas, slice and sprinkle some lemon to prevent blackening)
1- 2 cup each
Jelly in red and green colours2 cups
Tuti fruiti1 cup
Cashews (optional)
Sultana (optional)
Ingredients – Sponge cake slices, jelly, stewed pineapples, custard cream, tuti fruiti and sliced fruits

Let’s assemble all to produce this beautiful trifle;

  • Choose a tall Pyrex dish and arrange a neat layer of sliced cakes on the bottom
  • Arrange strawberries around the dish which will look pretty from outside. You can arrange grapes, bananas or any other fruit of your choice
  • Pour some pineapple syrup on the cake slices
  • Scatter some pineapple pieces on top
  • Cover with a thin layer of custard cream
  • Now, arrange a layer of jelly cubes
  • Throw any kind of fruit pieces on top
  • Again, a layer of cakes must be arranged
  • A dash of pineapple syrup and pineapple chunks must go next
  • Custard cream
  • Fruits
  • Jelly
  • Cakes
  • The layers must continue until you reach the top
  • Pour 2tbsp of condensed milk
  • Smear a layer of custard cream as the last layer
  • Arrange strawberry slices or any other fruits and decorate attractively
  • Sprinkle tuti fruiti, cashews, sultanas or any dry fruit pieces
  • Store in the fridge for at least 8hrs, preferably overnight
  • All the juices will get soaked up and blended beautifully when you serve. Cut into squares and serve on dainty dessert plates

Undu Walalu recipe

Undu Walalu /Pani Walalu “Gold Bangles”

undu walalu/pani walalu

Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka welcome this most prominent cultural festival known as Aluth Awurudda or New Year on the 14th of April annually. It is also known as the Sun festival, based on the astrological point of view that, Sun’s journey from the House of Pieces to the House of Aries is completed on this day.

The whole country gets together to celebrate this occasion on grand scale by making many traditional sweetmeats, dressing up in traditional costumes and playing traditional games.

These gold bangles are a very popular sweet during this time and I am thankful to my mum for passing this recipe on to me as I am now quite confident in making them myself.

I believe this is the easiest and the yummiest sweet that you can rustle up just before the New Year day. I am sure everybody will love to indulge in these, gladly forgetting their diet plans!

So let’s make them and pass them around to spread happiness and goodwill.

Important tips:

  • Remember to fry twice to make them crispier
  • Choose a flat pan so that you can fry several of them at the same time
  • Sugar syrup must be always hot. If it goes cold in the middle of the process, heat the pan again for a minute
  • It is advisable to make one and taste it first and adjust the taste if needed, before starting the whole process
