MOCHA OATMEAL CAKE RECIPE

Mocha Oatmeal Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Enjoy this oatmeal cake that is flavored with coffee and cocoa.

This Mocha Oatmeal Cake  is a perfect dessert to enjoy with family and friends.   Addition of oatmeal is a great way to include fiber in your diet too.
.
The rolled oat  is soaked in coffee for 20 minutes before adding to the batter.

I have used a wire whisk  to beat the butter and sugar but you could use a  mixer to do the job.

Mocha Oatmeal Cake turns out  gorgeous with no cracks and utterly moist.   I think the sweetness is on a lighter side ,  you may add extra sugar for a sweeter version.

Carrot Raisin Quick Bread  Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

If you're looking for a fast and easy bread, you should look out for quick bread that needs no kneading and no rising like this Carrot Raisin Quick Bread.

This bread also was  egg free.   As for the flour part, used a combination of plain flour plus whole wheat flour.

I grated the carrot using a box grater and used evaporated milk, but you could sub that with regular  milk if unavailable in your country.

Carrot Raisin Quick Bread turns out incredibly moist, easy to slice and took exactly  50 minutes to bake.

A combination of rice and yellow lentils  make this a nutritious meal. I serve  my  Kitchree or Kitchari  with Ayam Masak Merah (Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce),
