Orange Cardamom Yogurt Cake

Well, it’s just been a terribly long time you saw us around the blogosphere. No stories this time around. We’ll jump right into some orange cardamom-y goodness! We thought this would be a good way to break the ice and distract you from our real (read: lame) reasons for being MIA. So, some of you who still follow us on Instagram must remember that this delicious chai time cake made its first appearance on social …

Sugar free Baby Smash Cake

Hello everyone, this is Aditi checking in for the CeeBees. Yeah, we’ve not been around for a while now despite my many declarations of wanting to blog and be around more often. I think I could/ should (you decide) now write a post on how to take countless blogging hiatus (or hiatuses, I am still researching on the actual existence of the plural form of hiatus, any views?) and excuses to make on your return …

Whole Wheat Brownies and a Story

Oh.. I did see some of you roll your eyes already! Yes, we’re back. Again. We periodically disappear. You think- we’re back again with some more lame excuses to explain our unannounced absence? Well, to be honest, I have been writing this post for a really long time… err.. in my head! I have been telling myself every day that today will be the day when thoughts are put in words and published. And today, …

Strawberry Cake

Some of you must remember these beauties from our Instagram feed from a few weeks months ago. Opps.. It’s been there way too long without a recipe especially if I have already made it more than once. But then it’s never too late for fresh strawberry cakes, is it now? This is no fancy schmancy cake- just a classic slightly adapted Martha Stewart vanilla cake topped with tart berries and baked to a light golden …

Whole Wheat Flour & Olive Oil Walnut Spice Loaf Cake

Errr..Long name, eh? I just couldn’t contain my excitement on this one. I have been trying to get myself to use whole wheat flour and olive oil to bake a cake for quite a while now. I just wasn’t sure about the texture, taste & flavor. After seeing quite a few cake and bread recipes using whole wheat flour and olive oil from the lovely ladies Sonal from Simply Vegetarian777, Apsara from Eating Well Diary …

Chocolate Sheet Cake

There is a reason why Ree Drummond calls her chocolate sheet cake the Best. Ever. It is the best.chocolate.cake.ever. You absolutely gotta try it. I have been wanting to make this recipe for a long time but the fact that it calls for a lot of butter and sugar has always kept me away. But it was finally time to put my new sheet cake pan to use and also, did I mention that everything …

We Are Back, Fiesta Friday & Strawberry Shortcake

Hello and welcome back! After a grueling two-week blog makeover period we are back with the soft opening of our brand new website. Yes- it’s still what we’d like to call a “soft-opening”. We are still putting all the bells and whistles in place and working behind the scenes to make everything look better. When we started the process a couple of weeks ago, we didn’t think it would take us this long to get …

Super Bowl Treats: Vanilla Cupcakes & Masala Sausage

Game day food is big- so I had heard and now I have seen! In fact, I think they should change it to chicken wings/ finger food day! I will not bore you more with the details of Super Bowl because I don’t understand the game even one bit, but the food- I understand. So we attended the “big game day house party” and did the usual- carried dessert and snuck in a spicy appetizer. …

Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Preserve Filling and Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream

This cake has managed a well-deserved spot after a couple of healthy dishes. 🙂 I was so excited to write this post and  that explains why it’s long! Oh what would I do without cakes…and the joy of baking them and frosting them- just wish I could more of them than I do now.  Just the beautiful sweet smell of a plain vanilla bean cake gets me excited! So we had a potluck-house-party to attend …
