Atta cake, this recipe calls for whole wheat flour aka atta, the flour we usually use for making rotis. This cake is eggless, butterless and i used condensed milk,dates puree to replace the egg and oil for butter. Apart from it this cake goes for simple and usual ingredients easily available in your pantry. I have added walnuts to give a nutty texture to this simple cake. You can add tutti fruity bites, chocolate chips or else more nuts as per your desire. However adding chocolate chips will definitely make this cake very interesting. Since i want to feed my kids with dates, i prepared a simple puree with dates cooked in water, if you dont have dates just replace it with apple puree.

I was searching for some spicy cookie with peppercorns, while googling i found an interesting cookies here. Initially i was intrigued about the addition of ground black pepperin cookies but trust me this cookies tastes absolutely nutty, mildly hot with mild sweetness. Actually the addition of black pepper gives a subtle hotness to this delicious cookies. Whole walnuts grounded as coarse powder along with all purpose flour makes this fabulous cookies though the original recipe goes a cup walnuts but i went for half a cup of walnuts, hence i couldnt stop adding some flour to make this scrumptious cookies.

Bored of baking always sugar loaded buns or dinner rolls, then give a try to this spicy sauteed onions and finely chopped coriander leaves loaded flavourful buns.This buns goes immediately to my favourite breads list.

My husband is an ardent fan of dry fruits cake, obviously my pantry will always have dry fruits and nuts. One of his favourite cake is fruits loaded cake, this cake ressembles almost like pound cake, though less egg is used. This recipe calls for butter eventhough you can replace it very well with any cooking oil. Actually i do this cake quite often by replacing half of the quantity of butter with oil. You doesnt need to soak the fruits overnite or in warm syrup, just add directly to the cake batter and bake it.However i couldnt stop myself adding some freshly squeezed orange juice and orange zest to the cake butter. This cake is quite simple to prepare, but trust me if you love loads of dry fruits in your cake then this cake is for you.

Its been a while i baked cookies with oats as main ingredient, this cuties are my recent bakes which i simply baked out easily and quickly with quick cooking oats and butter scotch chips. Adding butterscotch chips makes this cookies more delicious, obviously oats makes these cookies more nutritious and highly rich in fibre. As usual these cookies are eggless but not butter free, if you want to make some scrumptious cookies dont skip butter. Butter plays an important role in this cookies and its winter here so we love to add some fat in our daily meal or bakes just to tolerate the nasty chilled weather. Since few days, the weather in Paris is very much down and its quite hard to tolerate. We keep ourself comforting by indulging some fat loaded foods just to make us happy.

Brownies, this rich chocolate loaded baked dessert are quite famous for their fudgy texture.

Needless to say how we love brownies at home. Actually i had a small bottle of strawberry jam sitting for a while in my fridge as none want to have in their bread toast.
