Are you looking for a recipe for a really easy fresh fruit cake? Here is a no fail recipe that I use when baking with berries. A very simple coffee cake that is eggless, rises well, and has a beautiful crumb worthy of a Coffee Cake.

Cake baking has been a passion of mine. I began experimenting with baking when I was not quite in high school and have never looked back since. As I always followed the recipes from my grandmother's very English book and magazines, all my baking was with eggs. I never even dreamed that one could bake without eggs - they play the role of both providing moisture to the dough and act as a raising agent. Of course, there are some recipes that cannot be attempted without eggs or even egg whites. But there are many many recipes that can be attempted eggless - or so I discovered many years when I decided to take my experiments to a different level.

The first time I heard of Puran Poli was as a kid visiting a friend's home in Bombay! It was coming up to Holi and we had just popped in after an afternoon of skating. The home was replete with the aroma of ghee and cardamom and there was much bustle in the kitchen. On the dining table were large plates piled high with what looked liked parathas. But these parathas were sweetly fragrant, incredibly soft, and oozing with butter fat!!

I always to try to keep our refrigerator and stocked up with fresh home made meals. Yet every so often I also need to rustle up a really quick meal. Something easy yet delicious that we can enjoy hot off the pan. Seviyan or Indian noodles are my one on my favorite quick cook foods. With a pack or two in the pantry I assure you, you too can feed your family a hot meal in minutes. There are so many ways of preparing the seviyan - just go with your mood and instinct.
