saffron cake

Saffron & Kwara Cake

Tea cakes are absolute the best to bake. A well-read PG Wodehouse book and a slice of tea cake are such a simple pleasure to enjoy every day. 

But passing on the decorative frosting and the awful fondant with garish artificial coloring, please. 

Instead, enchant with the golden of saffron or the pink of beets!

What better way to add saffron to a meal to make it festive? 

We'd like to present the saffron cake. In addition to giving the cake a golden glow, it also gives it an obviously festive Indian flavor.

Kesar Burfi With Milk Powder

It's the festive season, so let's make some burfi!

Khoya or milk powder can be used to quickly make burfis that taste just like those that are cooked from scratch. This milk powder burfi recipe is a nice one to try if you don't have access to khoya and reside outside India. You can use any dairy whitener but verify that it is not the sweetened kind.

Just to make things exciting, you can tinge one layer pink using some beetroot juice. If you don't like pink, you may skip it. However, it will only add a few minutes of labor.
