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…
