He turned 3 months.... | Chunky Whole wheat apple walnut cake

Regular readers of my blog would have got used to the monthly birthday celebrations that I do for the kid and the cake baking and cutting sessions. I love baking the monthly cakes for him as this is a pretext for me to bake. Yes, I totally love baking cakes , any kinda bakes and when it comes to bake for the kid, I am adoring it. I am late in posting this, its time for another bake but with all the crashed system and doomed motherboard, not to forget the motherly responsibilities, I am in loss of time. But as the saying goes, better late than never, here I am with the recipe for Aaryan's 3rd month birthday cake.

Not to forget, Happy delayed Janmashtami wishes to all my sweet readers. I still remember this day, a year back, when I got a cute little toddler Krishnar, gave him some butter (..a small speck) as per the ritual, drew krishnar paadams, made sweets, did a small pooja, all the time praying to him to come to me, to bless us with a bundle of joy and after a year, here I am typing about my kid as he lays innocently across my bosom. No words are there to describe all the seconds that I am experiencing now and the toddler Krishnar will always be a part of my family for all the years to come.

Gokulashtami will be one festival which I will not miss to celebrate in my lifetime and so is today... Made some maa laddoos and arisi payasam for the Naivedyam. Will post the recipes when I find time and am not sure when that will be but sometime in the near future...

Thanks to all my readers who sent out all their love and wishes to us. We love 'U' all...

Now though its to celebrate his day, the cake finds its way into our tummies. Aaryan gets only a fake mouthful and that too for the photoshoot. So I didn't go for any calorie-laden chocolate cake or butter-cream frosting but stopped with a whole wheat cake throwing in apples and walnuts for the fancy part. (...oh they are fancy when it comes to health). The apples got cooked and gave a beautiful flavor to the cake. It being whole wheat, the father was allowed to take 2 pieces extra to his regular share.

Adapted heavily from Smitten Kitchen
~*What U Need*~
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 50 gm
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup
Apple - 1, peeled, cored and chopped
Walnuts - 1/4 cup, chopped

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 230C. Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda thrice. Cream butter and sugar and beat till fluffy. Add egg and mix till pale. Gently fold in the buttermilk.

Add the flour mixture and fold together. Thrown in the apple chunks and walnuts and give a stir. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 mins. Reduce the temperature to 200C and bake for another 15 mins or till done.

Slice and serve!!!


**My Notes
**Use butter, buttermilk and egg in room temperature.
**Overmixing the buttermilk will cause the mixture to curdle so just fold in.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!

  44. Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
