Banana Bread or Banana Cake is a favorite in our home. I bake it at least once a month - and have many variations of this delicious cake on my blog. I have baked Banana Cake with raising, with nuts, multi-grain flours, with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips - the list goes on! This latest is a wonderful Breakfast Cake as it is made with oats. Its dense, healthy, and nutritious and packs the power you need in a breakfast food. I love baking this Cake on weekends, for road trips, or to take along on hikes. At home I just warm a glass of milk and enjoy the cake with it. For the road I pack individual slices in cling film and add them to our snack packs. They are perfect with a hot glass of tea after a good long walk.

Its been ages since I made any steamed food. After our move, I had parked our steamer away in the back of my pantry. But with the coming of the festival season, we are all craving snacks! This year I decided to begin with making steamed snacks. I began with some Dhokla and the next on my list to make was Pithi | Peethi | Lentil Filled Rice Dumplings.

Its Ganesh Chaturthi and I have been cooking up some yummy celebratory dishes. This year I made Til ke Laddu | Sesame Seeds Laddoo for the first day of Ganesh Chaturthi. Followed it up with Mumra Chikki, Amimi Kozukottai, and today I have made Dal Pitha. However, I have been slow to post all the yummy dishes that I have been cooking up for this festival season. In fact its been many days since I wrote a post at all. Last month was quite busy and while I made some great dishes and took the photos, I just could not find the time time to sit and get the writing done.
