Christmas Chocolate Cake

Santa claus is coming to town, so let's try this cake recipe...:D. If you love chocolate cakes, you will love this recipe, so soft, so fluffy yet not sinful. I've used just few tablespoons of butter. Frankly, this recipe is not mine, I came across this recipe while learning about the boiling water-cocoa awesome technique, it actually intensifies the chocolate taste and makes your cake soft, so thought of sharing it with you. I mostly use yogurt frosting on cakes, but you can choose any frosting you like. I find yogurt frosting healthier, easier and tastier. Anyways, have a great christmas and celebrate life....Merry Christmas!!!!

It's Christmas time and winter is at its peak, a cup of tea (or 2 or 3 or 4 or.....:P) is perfect to feel comfortably divine! Everyone deserves a little treat with tea on such cold winter evenings and this cake is just perfect for this. Easy to make and very tasty. I've used very little butter in this recipe so enjoy it without much guilt. By the way, I didn't realise I have crossed 50 posts on my blog (Hey hurray), it's great!!! So try baking this cake and have a little treat from my side!!Hope you'll like it!!

Strawberry-Apricot Relish

My love for jams made me try this recipe, though its a relish and can be taken in many ways, but I love to have it on a crisp toast (with some fresh cream). This relish is a fresh, healthy and tasty way to satisfy your sweet taste buds and can be a good Christmas gift option for your family and friends! Apricots and strawberries are loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fibres and this relish is good way to add them in your diet. If you don't like apricots (huh?...really!! :P), you can use dates, figs, sultanas or raisins, in fact just play with any juicy berries or fruit, with any chewy dried fruit. This relish is easy to prepare and so divine! If you are gifting it to somebody, do specify the best before time (see step-6 below). Hope you like it!!!!

Citrusy Dates Chicken Breasts

Few days ago I posted a dates gravy recipe which was well appreciated. So inspired with that I tried using dates in this chicken recipe too. Dates have a very unique taste that incorporates well in sweet as well as salty recipes. This recipe has a very interesting flavour, sweet, sour, salty and of course very datesy :)  The sweet lime juice gives this dish a very nice citrusy hint. I've used very little oil that makes it even healthier. So go ahead and celebrate this festive season with this easy baked chicken recipe!!! Hope you like it!!

Hope you like it!!
