Lebkuchen (Gingerbread)

As we are in the midst of the festive season, it is hard to resist the temptation of the sweet and spicy goodies on offer. The difficulty is, they are mostly likely not vegan and even the odd vegan versions of festive bakes can tend to be very disappointing. My solution? Try and come up…

Banana Bread (vegan)

The good thing about buying bananas is that you eat the delicious fruit. The even better thing about buying bananas is that I never seem to finish them before they get too ripe, so I end up making banana bread with the leftovers! I’ve been using the Stephanie Alexander banana cake recipe for a few…

Vegan Pie

This week, I was visiting the cute and lovely Divya in Dubai and as a thank you for her hospitality, I wanted to bake her something scrumptious. I’ve always found baking on the go to be quite challenging – in my kitchen, I have all the necessary ingredients and equipment (which I have built up…

Jam Cookies

One of the best things about cookies is their versatility. They are a perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea, can easily pass off as a quick and easy dessert and are handy when you want a sugar kick during your day. To top off the awesomeness of cookies, you have jam – a lovely…

Masala Chai cake with Lemon and Mint Icing

I’m sure many  will agree that there is hardly a better way to make friends than over a cup of tea. The bond that you build only grows stronger as the tea brews and before you know it, several cups of tea have been happily sipped and you end up with a great friend. That…

Sweet and Salty Cumin Cookies

As my parents are visiting for a few weeks, I’ve been making different cookies so that they have a fun accompaniments to their morning cuppa. While I have made them the super easy ginger cookies and chocolate chip cookies (recipe to follow soon!), the fist recipe I want to share is of these delicious sweet…
