Apple Nutmeg and Cinnamon Sponge Cake

This Apple Nutmeg and Cinnamon Sponge Cake is definitely a delicious treat. It even tastes better after being in the fridge over the night. The cake is moist, spicy and sweet and if  you start eating one slice, you just want to eat one more. 😀

Saffron and Pistachio Kheer… Indian Dessert

This dessert which I made yesterday was absolutely amazing. It’s an Indian dessert called ‘Kheer’ A great combination of saffron, pistachios and sugar without turning too sweet. I have never tried to make anything from the Indian Cuisine before, so I was happy with the result, as it turned out beautiful. I found this lovely Kheer recipe on  Peri’s Spice Ladle’s Blog. Instead of 4 tablespoons sugar, I reduced to 3. I added 10 strands saffron, instead of 6-7.  😀

Kheer Sugar and Spice

Kheer Sugar and Spice Baking

Recipe (makes 4 portions)

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup Basmati rice, washed and drained
  •  3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • pinch of cardamom powder
  • 10 strands saffron
  • ¼ cup pistachio, crushed with a mortar and pestle

Bring the milk, rice and cardamom to a boil. Reduce flame to low and let it cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring every few minutes to avoid it sticking to bottom of pan. Check if the rice is cooked. Using a hand blender or the back of the spoon, churn the rice and milk mix (this step is only meant to break up the rice grain, not blend it.)

Add the sugar and saffron to the kheer. Stir the pistachio nuts into the rice pudding. Remove from the flame when it reaches a pudding-like consistency (remember puddings get firmer as they cool.) Serve slightly warm or well-chilled.

Happy Birthday Sugar and Spice Baking 1 year old! Sugar and Spice Baking’s Fruit Vanilla Cream Cake and Vanilla Muffins! Go Sweden! Go England!

One year ago, I started my Baking Blog, Sugar and Spice Baking, without knowledge about how to create a Blog. This year has been amazing and rewarding, despite the fact that I’ve been forced to go to the gym a bit more often.. hehehe.

My boyfriend James, gave me Mr. Croco, and for some reason I decided to involve Mr. Croco in the Blog due to that he looks a bit cute and funny with his eyes and smile. You have also met Mr. Croco’s friends, Mr. Octo and Mr. Water-Draggo, in earlier Blog posts. They are on “holiday” now, but Mr. Croco is here to celebrate with you guys. 😀 He has baked Sugar and Spice Baking’s Fruit Vanilla Cream Cake and on top of that he also baked some yummy Vanilla Muffins. I hope you all have enjoyed reading my Blog so far… More to come in the future. I wish you all a lovely Saturday and Summer! Happy Birthday Sugar and Spice Baking 1 year old! Go Sweden!
