Hello !!!

I am so happy to share that my humble blog completes 3 Yrs this month. It has been an amazing journey which has taught me so many things , introduced me to many wonderful and talented people who are always encouraging with their lovely feedback which has helped me to improve.I would also like to thank my family, friends and my wonderful readers who have time and again given their honest feedback which has made me better understand them and improve myself constantly. Do continue to shower your love and blessings which will boost me .I have met many of them personally and there is long list of people whom i am keen to meet sometime soon.To share this milestone i have baked a moist chocolate cake and decorated it as well.

Now coming back to this wonderful recipe it is eggless. I have tried to step out of my comfort zone and worked with Ganache. It was an awesome experience working with chocolate ganache. I know i need to work on my decoration skills. This is just a baby step and I am happy to have taken it.

2 Minute Mug Cake(Eggless)

I am dedicating this post to my younger son who is on a overseas trip for  school Immersion program for 4 days.

This is the first time he is on his own. For a Mom her child is always a kid. I have a mixed bag of feelings and at the same time very happy as my son was selected for this program. Not many people get this opportunity. This will surely help him to learn and understand the world and become a good human being. He has an opportunity to explore and learn new things.

He told me Mom please don’t get emotional when I am leaving for the trip as I will be back soon. I am deeply touched. All of us at home are missing him as he keeps everybody on their toes all the time.

We are waiting for him to return this week.

Before he left ,I made his favorite 2 Minute Mug cake(eggless) .

This is a no fail recipe. I can bet this will satisfy your hunger cravings.
