Orange Marmalade Cake




Orange Marmalade cake

Buttery and citrus flavored marmalade cake, it was at instant hit and my family loved it.There was no specific recipe. I just used an ordinary cake recipe and gave extra flavor with orange juice, orange marmalade and wine.Adding wine is optional,I had some leftover after I made Christmas plum cake and so added into this cake.You can substitute it with buttermilk.I had actually prepared a orange syrup( orange juice and sugar) to drench cake layers,but the wine and orange juice had already made the cake moist and super flavorful so I did not use the syrup. Try this cake,you will surely love it.

Ingredients

Flour- 2 1/2 cup
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Eggs- 3
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Butter- 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence-1 tsp
Wine- 1/2 cup
( or you can use 1/2 cup butter milk)
Zest of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
Orange marmalade- 1/3 cup
(I used the store brought one-use 1 tsp for the cake and rest to spread on top of the cake)


In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.Shift flour and keep aside.Preheat oven to 350 degree F.Prepare cake tin by buttering and lining with parchment paper.

In a small mixing bowl, stir in the juice of one lemon, zest of one lemon, orange marmalade and wine and set aside. 
Using a hand mixer beat room temperature butter till soft and fluffy. Add little by little of sugar till it blends well and becomes a pale color. Beat for about three to four minute. Now add one egg at a time and continue to beat in high speed till it is well blended,light and fluffy.Add vanilla essence. With a spatula fold in 1/3 of the flour mixture and little of the orange juice wine mixture.Gently fold and continue the same process till all the dry and wet ingredients are well incorporated.
 Pour into prepared cake tin. Even it using the spatula spread it evenly in the pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake completely. Decorate the cake as you desire. If you wish you can do a cream frosting and use orange marmalade as a filling. I just spread a layer of marmalade on top of the cake. 


 Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

Kerala Chicken Roast

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...

Shrimp Biryani

Shrimp Biryani has a wonderful taste and flavor which makes it stand apart as one of the most popular and favorite among Biryani lovers. There are different ways to make an authentic shrimp Biryani. This is not an authentic one. It is inspired by the Goa shrimp Biryani which makes use of coconut milk and tomatoes instead of yogurt. When i read about this i had an instinct to make it as I wished to understand why Goa food is unique is in its flavor and taste. This recipe actually called for the traditional method of making it with raw shrimp and uncooked rice cooked in coconut milk. But I did not try that fearing that I will end up with a pulao. Luckily my method proved successful and the Biryani came out well and there is a wonderful aroma now in my kitchen.

Ingredients
For Rice
Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Cardamon-2
Cinnamon- 1 stick
cloves - 2
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tsp


For shrimp masala

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
