Of Baking and Cooking

I have to agree with my blogging friend Joanna. She said I was bitten by “baking bugs”.

The following recipes were the one I thought is worth sharing with you all; they are smooth texture cakes with a hint of veggie/fruity taste in it.

This recipe never failed me (touch wood). I have attempted many times and it usually turned out good; it goes really well with rice.

Give a try, ladies.
