Eggless Lemon Cake

Eggless Lemon Cake
Hi Friends,
I never imagined that lemon cakes could be so addictive. I made this cake after gathering so much courage. I was scared that lemon zest will make it bitter as i never did that earlier. But i gathered all courage and started baking a lemon cake. My fingers were crossed until cake was baked and lemon aroma filled the kitchen. I never thought it could be so refreshing and tempting. 
When i took first bite of the cake i was like My God why i was so much scared and kept myself away from such a addictive flavor. Flavor was sweet and tangy a perfect combo to tingle your taste bug. I will highly recommend you to try this cake.

Wheat Flour and Sugar Cookies/ Cookies with Wheat Flour and Sugar

Wheat Flour and Sugar Cookies/
Cookies with Wheat Flour and Sugar
Hi Friends,
This is my first cookie in the blog. I always wanted to bake cookies. The only time I miss an oven is when i think about baking cookies. As in cooker or gas oven you dont get enough space to bake cookies and you will end up baking 2-3 cookies at a time. But this time i was determined to bake cookies at any cost. Instead of baking cookies in 2-3 batches as made small cookies so that if recipe went wrong i regret less and second thing was time. I was not having enough time to bake cookies in batches. So i chose this way and it worked well. 

These are very easy, quick and healthy cookies as it has wheat flour ghee. My be shapes of cookie does not attract your but my cookies are crunchy with the soft and chewy taste of tutti fruity. It took me hardly 30 minutes to complete the process. My kids liked them very much. Hope you will try and like them as well.

Wheat Flour- 3 tbsp
Ghee- 1.5 tbsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Baking Soda-1/4 tsp
Tutty Fruity-1 tbsp

Take your ingredients

cream sugar+ghee

no need to dissolve sugar

take flour and baking soda

mix them well

now slowly add flour mix in sugar+ghee mix

add remaining flour and mix well

it will look like bread crumbs

add tutti fruity

mix well

make dough

take a small portion and shape them 





yummy crunchy and chewy cookies

  1. Check cookies after 12 minutes, if not done bake for more two minutes and check again. 
  2. You can skip tooti fruity and make them simple.
  3. After baking cookies will remain soft but they will get the crunch when cooled down completely. So don't over bake to get the crunch.
  4. You can use all purpose flour instead of wheat flour and butter instead of ghee. But ghee will give you a unique aroma and taste. So its recommended. 
Hope you will like it
