Where there’s a sweet tooth….

there’s a cake ! Bake or NO BAKE !

I mentioned a few days ago , the microwave at home has conked off , but this is no spoiler for the hub who absolutely loves sweets .

A quick  online search resulted in a quick sweet fix ! Luckily we had all the ingredients and he managed this in less than an hour. As this was his first time trying this out , Mr. Sweet Tooth used smaller proportions of ingredients . It was fun to watch him in action . I have posted the link to the original recipe at the bottom . Mr experimenter added almonds and skipped the  vanilla extract .

I was a spectator in the kitchen and here’s what I observed …..

A few walnuts and almonds toasted on medium flame for about 4 minutes

About two tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of cocoa powder mixed and then water added gradually , stirring well.

Over medium heat , add butter (  He added one and  a half tablespoons) and stir for about five minutes

When this is done , let it cool for about ten minutes and then add this syrup to the biscuits and nuts !

    1. Jaggery…that used to be my grandma’s fix too ! The experimenter is definitely not me in our home , in fact I took up baking only to satiate those sudden sweet desires of Mr. Sweet tooth . Am not a big fan of sweets myself . An occasional indulgence but that’s that . Have a nice start to the week R. 🙂
