The one with the caramelized bananas

Hi, everyone! 😁 I hope you’re all doing wonderful.

So, I made crêpes with chocolate and caramelized bananas today. It was my first attempt at making crêpes and caramelized bananas.

I’ve attached the recipe for the crêpes below:

Crêpes

Please note that I also added 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar to the batter in order to make it mildly sweet, along with 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence to tone down the taste and or smell of eggs.

For the chocolate spread, I used some leftover combination of milk chocolate and milk from before. For this spread, take 1 cup of chocolate with 1/4th cup of milk. You can change the quantity depending on the amount of output you want. Chop the chocolate into tiny pieces and add boiled milk to it. Stir the mixture after 20-40 seconds, until it becomes smooth. Put the mixture into the fridge for 10 minutes or so for it to become slightly thick. Your chocolate spread for the crêpes is ready! This mixture can be used for other purposes as well.

Now, for the last part of the dish — the caramelized bananas; the recipe to which you will find attached below:

As it is evident, the chocolate refused to behave and started overflowing. 😅 The combination of the caramelized bananas and chocolate tasted pretty good together.

I hope you all try this dish, and let me know your experience. Until next time, bye-bye, and take care. 🙂

A classic welcome to summer

Hi, all you lovely readers! I hope you’re all doing great. It’s been really long since I’ve posted anything, and I’m a tad bit guilty of that.

So, this one’s about an easy-to-make beverage; cold coffee! Yes, it’s quite easy to make, but I only made a tasty one after a really long time.

Now, for this cold coffee, in a grinding jar, I added 3/4th mug of milk, 1 teaspoon of coffee (or a small normal eating spoon, in case you don’t have measuring spoons), and 1 teaspoon of sugar (I used powdered sugar, but you can use granulated sugar as well). Then, I gave it a nice mix. After this comes the best part; ice cream. 😁 I put 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream into the jar, and off went the mixer again! You can use chocolate ice cream, if that’s what you prefer. I couldn’t find chocolate ice cream in the market, so I used vanilla instead.

(I hope my photography skills have improved).

The whole thing does not need to be mixed for more than 10-15 seconds all-in-all. The ice cream will add volume to the cold coffee, which is why I used only 3/4th mug of milk, and not a whole mug.

So, here’s to the season of delicious cold coffee, lemonade, and buttermilk! Take good care, you all. Don’t let the heat get to you. I will post here soon again. Till then, bye bye! 😁

Why food?

Hi, everyone! 😁

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend. So, this post is not going to be about any dish that I tried making or so, because I haven’t made anything. 😛 I’m going to use this post to convey to you why I chose to start writing a food blog in the first place.

So, food is a really big thing in my family; from my grandparents to my parents to my elder sister to me. Whatever happens, we want yummy food. Now, obviously, our definition of yummy food doesn’t always match, but for most part (for vegetarian food, because my grandparents do not consume non-veg), it does. My maternal granny (my sister and I call her Naanima) is an amazing cook, and passed this art to my mom as well. My sister is a foodie as well and a brilliant cook. I ask her for help whenever I find myself confused while baking.

I started baking just for fun. But, soon enough, I started loving this beautiful technique that we call baking. Over the past two years, my love for food has grown immensely. I’m surrounded by foodies which makes it easier for me to talk about it. My best friend, Ananya, an excellent cook, has out-of-this-world wonderful baking skills. She and I are indulged in talking about food majority of the time. She’s another person I go to when I need help to clear my doubts about what is to be done further while baking or making any dessert. I don’t cook savoury dishes much; just a few dishes here and there sometimes.

Desserts are my love; I love making them. The fact that I love eating them is a little obvious, I suppose. 😁 Well, I shall definitely update you guys soon about any incredible dish that I eat or any new/old dish that I make. For now, bye-bye! I hope you have a great week ahead. 🙂

Entrée into the world of blogging

Hi, everyone!

This is the first time that I’m blogging. I’ve been thinking of starting a blog since a long time, but never went through with it. But, finally, here I am! This is purely out of impulse, which is quite unlike me.

So, as the name suggests, this platform will be dedicated to food (especially desserts), because one of my mottoes is – “Food is love. Food is life.” I will try to update the blog as regularly as possible, with the help of the honest feedback by all you readers, of course! So, please do give me your honest feedback.

Until next time (which will be the first proper post), toodles! 🙂
