Surprise Inside Valentine Cake / Hidden heart loaf cake

  I personally love occasion and I find that Valentine’s day is a wonderful day to express love to your loved one. So here I am with my Surprise Inside Valentine Cake / Hidden heart loaf cake for my readers. I tried to keep it simple and handy.

Bangladeshi Black Forest Cake

Bangladeshi Black Forest Cake

  Black forest cake is the most popular cake in Bangladesh. But with availability of ingredients and taste bud of Bangladeshi people Bangladeshi Black Forest Cake is quite different than original Black Forest cake. Cherry is only used in decoration (not inside layer). In Bangladesh Butter cream is used in Black Forest Cake. Though I prefer whipped cream, I am adding both (butter cream and whipped cream) recipe. Use to your choice. It is pretty simple recipe which gorgeous look. You don’t need to perfect with icing, because you will cover it with chocolate. Please check tips part. Instead of chocolate you can use cake crumbs from off cute cake.

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

  Molten Chocolate Lava Cake / Chocolate lave cake / self-sauce chocolate cake / molten chocolate cake which ever name you call it, it’s just little piece of heaven. You can use your favourite type of baking chocolate bar or chips. Different chocolate has different sugar level, so lick a bit to add sugar to your taste. I have used milk chocolate bar here. To make this cake usually ramekin (one type of small dish for baking and serving an individual portion of food) is used as a mould. Though you can use any microwave proof tea cup. I used tea cup here and make 4 small cakes though you can 2 standard sizes from this batter. Depend on size, baking dish and oven it will take 10 – 15 minutes. You can even use cupcake tray, for cupcake tray it will take 8-10 minutes. If your cake is not gooey (molten) inside that means you baked it too long, bake less time next time (though instead of Molten Chocolate

Bangladeshi Fruit Cake

Bangladeshi Fruit Cake

    Bangladeshi Fruit Cake is actually close to lite fruit cake with raisins, glazed cherry and Ash Gourd candy.

Nonta Biscuit / Salted Biscuit (Bangladeshi Style)

Nonta Biscuit / Salted Biscuit (Bangladeshi Style)

To me if you don’t like chanachur or Nonta Biscuit / Salted Biscuit (both need to be from bakery not from packet), you are not Bangladeshi. Nonta Biscuit / Salted Biscuit is the salted form of shortbread(interesting). In Bangladesh it is made with hydrogenated vegetable oil(Dalda) rather than butter or ghee.   Ingredients: • 1 and ½ cups plain flour • ½ cup cornflour • 200 grams butter • 3 tablespoons caster sugar • 1 and ½ teaspoon salt • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder(optional) • ½ teaspoon baking powder • ½ teaspoon nigella(kali jeera)     How to make: 1. Add butter and sugar in a food processor and mix it till butter starts fading. 2. Add salt and cardamom powder: mix again. 3. Sift baking powder, plain flour and cornflour together. 4. Add sifted flour in food processor little by little and mix it. 5. After mixing flour it will become very soft dough. Take out the dough from food processor and add nigella. Mix it with your hand.
