Nankhatai with Butter | Eggless Indian Festival Cookies

Many years ago, I posted a recipe for Nankhatai. At that time I was doing a lot of experimental baking using different kinds of flour. I used atta (Indian Chapati Flour) for this recipe along with besan (Gram Flour), and semolina (cream of wheat) for this recipe. What resulted was a crunchy version of the Nankhatai, which was also deliciously melt in the mouth.


The recipe I am sharing today is a more traditional version of the Nankhatai. It is superbly delicious, and feels like a softer version of the Scottish shortbread!! This is because the main ingredients here are besan (Gram Flour) and butter. A very small portion of semolina is added to the recipe to give this cookie a good crumb, and AP flour to ensue it all holds together.

Mango Cardamom Cake | Eggless Baking


Mango season is upon us and the joy of eating this amazing fruit cannot be overstated. Every summer I try out ideas for recipes with both raw and ripe mangoes. As I love baking, I posted a recipe for a Vegan Mango Cake, a few years back. Today I am sharing another recipe for a Mango Cake that is eggless, but not vegan.

Lemon Coffee Cake | Eggless Baking


Lemons are aplenty and after a week of Lemonade Recipes 😉, I was ready to expand my recipe horizons 😄!! So yesterday I baked my favorite Lemon Cake - eggless of course!! I often bake citrus cakes, but this was the first time I bake one topped with Streusel!! It was surprisingly good, with a dense crumb, and a light lemony flavor which came from the table spoonful of lemon zest and the fresh lemon juice in the recipe.

Dundee Cake | Eggless Baking


A traditional Dundee Cake comes from the Scottish kitchens and is packed with a variety of dried fruit and wears a crown of almonds. It is a dense, delicious cake, with a very rich crumb, best enjoyed with a cup of fragrant tea. Many years ago when I taught myself to bake, Dundee Cake was my go to for special treats and the very cold winters of Delhi.
