Sweets - Souffles and Biscuits

Here's another collected recipes post with all things sweet. Considering that most of these are my own recipes I am reasonable sure that you guys will enjoy them. Some of them were taken from others and added to as well. All of these are being migrated over from my other blog. So click on the headings to go over to the recipes.

Chocolate Fudge Icing

This is what takes any regular sponge or vanilla cake the extra mile. This gooey and yummy icing is easy to make and is an instant success with kids.

Butter Bake Biscuits

For those of you who have tasted Kayani's Shrewsberry biscuits this will taste familiar. Its not as good as the original, although I will keep trying to get that formula right.

Praline or Butterscotch

This is the crispy crunchy bit that you can use to top off ice cream and puddings. You can add this in a tipsy pudding to get extra crunch.

Praline Souffle

The praline above is also used to make this praline souffle. The original recipe was from my aunt. I do tend to tweak it a little and so should you!

Lemon Souffle

This is a good lemon souffle recipe. Just don't go overboard on the lemon rind and zest or it can end up tasting quite bitter.

For those of you still looking forward to the cake recipes there's not too long a wait.

Mixed Recipes

Here is a collection of recipes that I  have picked up from other posts on the internet. They are building blocks to more elaborate recipes. You can make these and keep a couple of days before the party and have them available ready to improvise on the day of the party.

Some of them are really quite good. Others can do with a little personal touch to improve. Hope you enjoy trying them out as much as I did. To go to the recipes click on the title heads. They will take you to the page with the recipe.

Mushroom Sauce

This is a good base for stir fried vegetables. If you intend to serve this at the party make the sauce and store in the fridge a day before. Cut up the vegetables and store them as well. Then on the day of the party  stir fry the vegetables and add the mushroom sauce just before serving. Heat up together and you have a great dish ready.

Broccoli and Cheese

This one is so cheesy and delicious that even the kids won't mind eating their broccoli. If you are too averse to broccoli you can alter the recipe. Use regular white cauliflower instead of the green broccoli. It may not be quite as colourful, but it will still taste great.


"No Vegetable" Soup Recipe

This one is good for those unannounced visitors at odd hours. When you need to serve a hot soup in a hurry and don't have any vegetable or chicken stock available you can use this quick recipe. I tried it out and it came out quite tasty.

Basic Vegetable soup

Call it vegetable stock or basic veg soup. You can use this as a soup by itself or spice it up with some more ingredients. Croutons and soup sticks will help dress it up. As will some finely chopped coriander or parsley depending on your taste and availability.

Basic Chicken Stock

A truely versatile little soup stock with which you can proceed to build any umber of more complicated soups. One of which is give below - the chicken wanton soup. I also found it a good base to make the talumein soup with.

Chicken Wanton Soup

Some hot soup with baby spinach leaves to add color to the white wantons in the clear soup. Yum is the word if you prefer your soup under spiced and clean. For those of you more interested in a hearty meal try the Thukpa recipe below.

Vegetable Wanton Soup

For the vegetarians there can be wantons that have no egg. Here is how to make the egg-less wantons and add them to the vegetable stock to make veg wanton soup. Again the spinach leaves can come right in to add color to the dish.

Thukpa - The Noodle Soup from Leh

 For those who have been to Leh this soupy noodle meal is no surprise. It is the staple meal of the local population combining carbohydrates with a good deal of hot fluid and nutritious vegetables. Add the chicken chunks and it also gets protein rich.

Hope you enjoyed these recipes. Will be back with some more soon. Check out more soups and salads in this book.
