I baked a Swedish cake, coconut bread, an apple pie and crunchy chocolate bars last weekend. My dig camera is up and running now and hencemanaged to take a few pics.
I took the pic of “Sister kaka” before it went into the oven and after that my camera was down. By the time it started working they got over. So bear with these pics. This is a swedish cake and Dagmar had given this name as its a smaller version of a bigger cake. I baked it for my loving sister and she liked it very much when I served it warm and fresh. The original recipe calls for strawberry sugar which I cannot get in Chennai. I mixed oridinary sugar with a pinch of green food color and the looks were not that bad but I missed the gorgeous looks of the strawberry sugar for sure! This recipe is from A Cat in the Kitchen
The Chocolate crunch bars are again a great snack and so easy. This is our dear Nic’s recipe again!
Then comes the coconut bread! This was almost like a coconut cake but less sweet. I made a simple topup and it turned to be absolutely delicious. This is my father’s idea of eating a slice of bread which I applied to this slice of coconut bread. Apply a a generous layer of butter on the slice. Sprinkle “Glucose” generously on it. The chill feel of glucose melting with the butter turns out to be an excellent icing. My father’s innovation in early 60’s during his bachelor days is our family’s favorite now! Here are the coconut bread slices !
