Fruit Flavoured Creamy Yogurt

500ml yogurt/dahi
3 tbsp jam/fruit preserve(your choice)I like rasberry
2 tbsp sugar

Depends on the yogurt.
If you have thick yogurt then its great but sometimes we get watery yogurt. In this case use muslin cloth (white netty cotton cloth used to seperate paneer from milk).
Keep yogurt knotted in this cloth for few hours in the fridge till you feel yogurt left is thick.
You will see extra water oozing out.
In bowl add this yogurt and gently mix sugar.
Dissolve the sugar properly.
Take glass cups and fill 1/4 glass with jam and remaining yogurt.
Serve chilled depends on your taste.
It might be too sweet for some and less sweet for others .
Experiment with sugar levels and enjoy this delicious dessert

Chocolate Cake


• 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

• 1-1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour

• 1 tbsp Vinegar

• 1 tsp Vanilla

• 1 cup Sugar

• 1 tsp Baking Soda

• 1/2 tsp Salt

• 1/3 cup Oil

• 1 cup Water

• Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
• Mix liquid ingredients in a separate bowl and combine it with dry ingredients.
• Stir the mixture with a wire whisk until well mixed.
• Grease an eight-inch baking pan.
• Pour the prepared mixture into the pan.
• Bake for about 45 minutes at 350 degree F.
• Top with ice cream and serve.

Simple Sponge Cake


For the Sponge

3 Medium eggs

Self raising flour


Caster sugar

1 tsp Baking powder

For the buttercream

75g Butter (unsalted)

Icing Sugar

1.Firstly, weigh the eggs (in the shell) and make a note of the weight.

2.Weigh out the weight of the eggs in sugar, flour and margarine (if the eggs weigh 200g, you need 200g of sugar, flour and margarine.

3.Beat the margarine and sugar in a large mixing bowl, until the consistency is creamy, the aim at this stage is to incorporate as much air into the mixture as possible.

4.Break the eggs into the margarine and sugar mix, add the flour, baking powder and any flavourings.

5.Mix the ingredients together, trying to incorporate as much air as possible.
Check that the mixture is of dropping consistency, in other words, when you lift and tilt a spoonful of the mixture it should naturally drop back into the bowl and not run or stay on the spoon. Add a little milk or flour if necessary.

6.Divide the mixture evenly between two greased 18cm cake tins, and place in a 180 degrees C oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not open the oven until at least 20 minutes have passed (doing so will release the air from the sponge mix). 7.

7.When the sponges are cooked you should be able to lightly press the top with your fingers and it should spring back into place.

8.Remove the sponges from the oven and place on a cooling rack.

9.While the sponges are cooling make the buttercream, by beating together the butter and icing sugar, and any flavourings. Add as much or as little icing sugar as is required to overcome the œbuttery flavour.
