Recipe adapted from Here


  1. In original recipe she used jaggery and honey but I used sugar. And I replaced coconut milk in the place of milk.
  2. You can check the cake in-between 20 – 25 mins as each oven works differently. Mine was ready in exactly 25 mins.
  3. You can add any nuts of your choice.
  4. You can even frost the cake after completely cooling down.

      1. Thanks my friend – Thinking up a storm for a good theme. Will await your submissions for April

          1. If you think of something please let me know as soon as possible.

          2. Thanks so much, How about we do this on a monthly basis, that a participant in the previous month have the option to choose the next theme. OK, this is your turn. Please let me know if possible what the theme would be no later than 25th, as I will still need to prepare the post for release on the 1st. Are you up to it??

          3. This sounds great ?…I was thinking that have we done cookies theme yet. If not how about doing that?

          4. Would it be possible to choose a differeent theme, as we did Cookies in December. Anything else, or even just an ingredient.

          5. Ok..Seems I got poor memory ?…I thought color of the food will be interesting. If so green colored food. If not , then going on ingredients, green leafy vegetables.

          6. Like the idea of green leafy vegetables. Great we will use that then. So you now know the theme but we will keep it secret till the release on 1 April for the rest
