Palmiers - Little Hearts Biscuits

Today's recipe is another delicious biscuit which is quite popular among kids in India.. It is also a traditional French pastry which is flaky, rich and buttery.. I got this recipe from here and absolutely love it.. The addition of nuts is optional, but so tasty.

Bagel

Today's bake is a very famous type of bread called a Bagel. I love these with cream cheese.  Bagel is a traditional bread originated from Poland which is shaped by hand into a ring, poached and then baked, The toppings are a personal choice. Common toppings are sesame seeds, poppy seeds and rolled oats. I got this recipe from here. How does a good bagel taste – it should have a crust exterior, chewy interior and will have a light pull.

Buttermilk Biscuits

This is one of the first biscuits I tried.. I remember searching for biscuits recipe and I will always land up in cookies where there were many eggs to begin with.. Then when I searched biscuits without eggs, I landed on this recipe and tried it immediately. The pictures are at least 8 - 10 years old.. So long long ago, so long ago...

Eggless Pineapple Cake

Today's recipe is a simple and elegant Pineapple cake which I adapted from my Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake recipe. I made this cake for my husband's birthday.. He prefers single layer cake with frosting.... We loved this cake with refreshing pineapple flavor and aroma.. I frosted the cake with Fresh cream frosting. Another try I made was writing with the sugar syrup... I wrote "Happy B’day" with Sugar syrup and kept it on top of the cake.. It was so crunchy and delicious. This recipe will make 1 13x9 cake or 2 9" round cakes or 2 8" round cakes
