Kugelhopf

Rich, buttery brioche that can pass-off as a bread-cake! Baked it for Papa Bear’s birthday with whatever I could find at home – used Amul butter, raisins soaked in Frooti and gondhoraj zest. It’s the perfect cake for a bread lover and great for the holidays when you can leave this at the counter to snack on all day long!

Serve it with whipped cream, ice cream or just a dusting of icing sugar!

Cocoa Fudge Cake

Remember when I baked this Banana Bread, imagining it to be something Mad Men’s Betty Draper would have stashed away? Back then, I was binge-watching episodes of Mad Men when it aired late in the night. A strange thing

Chestnut flour is my latest jam! No, seriously, I’ve been stirring it into most things that I’ve baked lately and I absolutely love its slightly nutty, subtly sweet flavour. And for this latest experiment in my kitchen, I must thank the [Equal Streets](http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/

Turkish Gozleme with Ricotta & Swiss Chard

I’ve never been to Turkey, barring a brief stopover at Istanbul airport when I was on my way to Paris last year, but I can’t get enough of this Turkish street food snack called ‘Gozleme’. Think of it as a ‘roomali roti’ wrap that’s
