    Coffee Jelly Chocolate Parfait

    As we all know Coffee and Chocolate are a great combination. This is a delightful cold dessert that is easy to make, however, it takes time as you need to cool it in fridge.

Then replaced Butter with Oil. The cake turned very soft and moist, but too fragile. So I reduced Oil. The …

    Cocoa Oats & Almond Cookies

    I have a great recipe for ‘Oats & Banana Cookies’. They can be made with No Egg, No Flour, No Dairy. The binding ingredient is Ripe Banana, so they taste Banana. The other day, I wanted to make Cocoa flavoured Oats Cookies, but I didn’t have Banana. So I made a new recipe. You need …
