A CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH A TWIST!

Recipe: Ragi (Finger Millet) Chocolate Cake (Eggless)


Chocolate cakes never fail to impress my family ,serve it 3 times a day ,7 days a week and again for a whole month and then try baking something else like a vanilla cake for break .... 😑 you would find my kids and hubby frown and say ... oh come on not this again 😐!!! Its not that they won't eat it ... of course, they gorge it down without much effort, but the initial distaste they show can seriously put me off.

MORE CHRISTMAS TREATS!!

Yule Log (Buche de Noel)

Here I am back with another Christmas speciality.



Well, I always wondered why they ever called this luscious cake roll a Yule log and why was it synonymous with Christmas . A few tapping and google had it all. Actually, it was an ancient European tradition to collect yule logs and burn it over the 12 days of Christmas and they even reserved a piece of the current years log to light up the log for next years Christmas !!
And the Yule log cake began to made as a symbolic representation of this ancient tradition when the actual custom fell out of use.
