Sri Lankan Rich Cake

Rich Cake is another variety of fruit cake (or, as I would call it, Christmas fruit cake :)) that is commonly served at weddings and at Christmas in Sri Lanka. Since I’d recently made a coconut fruit cake, Fahim had been begging me to make a Rich Cake. So I did. ๐Ÿ˜€ Here it...

Easy Chocolate Mousse

I wrote this up a few days ago, but the stars were apparently not aligned properly since it gotten eaten. Not even my saved draft was intact! Ack! So here I am again, trying to remember the witticisms from the original. Oh, and how brilliant was I! Amazing! I had the best stories… ๐Ÿ™‚...

Pound Cake

Pound Cake

Turns out, I've made plenty of cakes called pound cakes (yes, I do have that bad of a memory), as evidenced by the recipes I've got kicking around, but none were true pound cakes in the original proportions. ... Well, except I didn't make it with one pound of each ingredient, but...

A month and a half back, Fahim and I were returning home when we saw this truck. ... Cuz I really don't think we're in an alternate universe right now, you know? As it turns out, we got our answer when the car we were in passed the truck.

Kiri Aluwa – Sri Lankan Milk Toffee

Except that Fahim tells me that no one calls it kiri aluwa, apparently. Ah well. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a sweet that I encountered very soon after I came here. And as usual with most sweets, I adore it. ๐Ÿ™‚ In the past, we’ve bought it from the grocery store. Milk toffee usually comes in...

Embarkadeiros!

29 October 2009
By
Embarkadeiros!

That’s what Fahim, the silly boy, calls ’em. They’re really called brigadeiros. They’re a Brazilian treat I learned about on Craftster. The directions in that thread say to microwave the ingredients in a deep container for 6 minutes on high. That didn’t work for me or a few others, unfortunately. When I took the...

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars. Because Fahim is who he is, he’s calling them NaNoWriMo Bars. But we’ll just ignore him, shall we? ๐Ÿ™‚ Nanaimo Bars. Ah, that brings back memories. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nanaimo Bars have been a part of my life for a good long time. Since I belong to a family of adamant chocaholics, Nanaimo Bars...

Lemon Coconut Larabars

Fahim’s already started calling these Laramie Bars, and once he starts something, he’s not inclined to let it go. He changes the names for everything, so I really should be used to this by now… :p Larabars. I came across a post over on Chocolate and Zucchini about them a couple of weeks ago...
