There is no joy like dunking a homemade warm buttery cookie into a cup of tea or a glass of milk. Especially when you bake those few times. Don't get me wrong, I love baking, seeing the fruits of your efforts bloom and rise in the oven and fill the entire house with those heavenly aromas is something I simply cannot get enough of. But, I just fail to make the time to bake very often. So whenever I do, I celebrate the finished product. And what a celebration this was - rich chewy cookie with bits of crunchy cornflakes and soft blocks of my favorite dark chocolate. Try resisting that!!

There is only one thing to blame for this Cornflake Chocolate Cookie goodness - the idiot box!! As every other person obsessed with food, I too binge watch food channels on TV. And one of them repeatedly played these "quickies" or "shorties" of a cornflake chocolate chip cookie recipe. As far as I was the only person watching it, it was okay, I've learnt to contain my excitement now, but this video was watched by Raj and Gee and had them all excited. Their excitement rubbed off on me, and these cookies made it into this world from my tiny little oven. When I say tiny, I mean it, I had to bake them in 3 batches. Also, another reason I bake less. The first thing I buy when I buy my first house, will be a BIG bad oven!!

I'm usually a fan of crunchy biscuits or cookies, and this was the first of my chewy lot. I LOVED loved loved every little crumb of it. It tasted of butter, dark Bournville chocolate and Corn Flakes. Raj, true to his self, grabbed one each time he entered the kitchen and Gee, true to her self, found the cookies too rich (pure butter is so wasted on some people), yet managed to down a few.

Making these cookies was actually a breeze. Just cream together the butter and sugar until well mixed, then add everything else to it and mix until combined. No chilling or shaping, just spoon them onto the baking sheet and bake them until slightly brown. The cookies will be soft when just out of the oven, they will crisp up on the outside as they cool. Keep enough space between the cookies while baking as the butter in the dough will melt causing the cookie to spread. If you want to bake later, just wrap in cling wrap or plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Remove from fridge and slice and bake it when ready. 

Use flavored cornflakes and different types of chocolate to get more variety from the same recipe.

Vegan Coffee Walnut Brownies


This is my LAST post of 2016 and it's been a wonderful year, definitely better than the last 2. The year had me complaining a lot about hectic schedules but it also had me winning an award at work (yay!!), completing 5 years of a wonderful marriage, taking a memorable vacation to Cambodia with the people I love the most in the world. It has also been the year where I have blogged the most. This is my 70th post of the year. It is much less than how often I would like to write but it is a start. So while I sign off this year, I'm leaving you with a little treat to celebrate 2016 and here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year!!

Coffee+Chocolate+Walnuts = AMAZING moist stimulating brownie.

These brownies are good for you, really. Waaah, you think I'm just throwing it around, don't you?
1) Walnuts are good for your brain. They also shaped like them. They help in improving memory, etc etc. Well, point to be noted is they are good for you.
2) These brownies are perfect energy boosters with the added Coffee.Some think that may be bad for you, but we don't associate with coffee haters anyway. I mean, is there a tastier way for you to have coffee, than in a Brownie?
3) Everybody says chocolate is good for you, don't they? Well, here's some nice dark chocolate.   Cheers for our health!!

Have I convinced you? I do hope I have because I wouldn't want you to miss out on this little piece of heaven.

How to make vegan chocolate cake brownies recipe at www.oneteaspoonoflife.com

For once, I simply made the brownies. No birthday, no celebration, no potluck, no get together. Just cause I wanted to treat myself, (yes, myself) to a dark moist chocolatey brownie. I've worked hard all year and I deserve it. So do you!! And when something tastes so good, it really does not need excuses or occasions. Of course, I shared this with family, but it was I who cut into them while still warm (not advised, but let's be honest, who can resist warm brownies) and ate to my heart's content before sharing it with anyone.

I feel happy and good when I eat things I love and chocolate usually ranks high on the list of foods that make me happy. What is it that you love to eat? What makes you happy? Let me know, may be I have a recipe just for that.

40 minute Eggless Chocolate Cupcakes

It was Saturday morning and hubby dearest and my sister’s birthday. Both are currently turned off by big creamy cakes L. So I had all savoury items planned, but fate intervened and we had to change all our plans L . We could all just meet up for breakfast. No cake, no elaborate lunch menu… was enough to get me all upset (They were somehow fine L).  But I’m no quitter, so I decided whether they like it or not, I will go ahead and bake cake for them, only I baked tiny little cupcakes so it wasn’t too much cake but still there was something special. Luckily, both seemed to like it. I usually bake cakes for evenings or nights, when I have all the time in the world to take things slowly.  My first time baking for breakfast, and I had to be quick. So I made these simple 40 minute chocolate cupcakes with things easily available at hand. I hope you enjoy making these when you are starved for time.

1/4 cup Cocoa powder
¾ tsp Baking powder
A pinch Baking soda

1 Tbsp Vinegar
½ tsp Chocolate / Vanilla essence
1/4 cups Vegetable Oil

  • Bake for 20-22 mins until done. Mine took 22 mins.

Almond Chocolate Brownie (Eggless)


I absolutely LOVE, LOVE and more LOVE these Eggless Almond Chocolate Brownies. They are chocolate-y (Oh ya!) to the core and they have crunchy Almonds, what's not to love?


How to make eggless almond chocolate brownie recipe at www.oneteaspoonoflife.com


I'm definitely a chocoholic at heart, soul, fingers and toes. I've never been able to resist a good piece of chocolate. Dark, Milk, White, I'm game for any type of chocolate. All that talk of chocolate is enough to make me wanna crave one this instant. I wonder how people save their chocolate for later. As for me, if I know there is a chocolate around the house, I can think of at least 10 reasons why it should be in my mouth and not on the shelf.

I'm also totally NUTS about nuts. I'm always stocked with Almonds, Cashew nuts, Pistachios, and sometimes Walnuts. They are the best in-between-meals snacks I can think of. I carry a handful in my bag all the time to munch on in the bus.

They say chocolate is good for you, they say nuts are good for you, I say these Almond Chocolate Brownies are really good for you. May not be calorie wise but spirit wise, big Thumbs up!! Nothing like an awesome brownie to raise your spirits and make you feel like you are flying high up in the sky.

Everyone has their favorite brownie recipe. This recipe is mine. These Eggless Almond Chocolate Brownies have become a birthday regular for me. I've made it twice in a row now and I'm still amazed how something so easy to make can be so wonderful in taste. 

One would think Brownies are for kids, but I feel the older I get, the more I want them. 


How to make eggless almond chocolate brownie recipe at www.oneteaspoonoflife.com


This recipe makes cakey brownies that are not sickly sweet. The semi sweet dark chocolate (my favorite kind of chocolate) gives this Brownie that slight bitter darkness and not making it sickly sweet. I'm not really a fudgy sweet brownie kinda girl. 

This recipe is eggless aka vegetarian, however, it is not vegan. The condensed milk replaces the eggs as the wet ingredient. If you can find vegan sweetened condensed milk, then you can make these brownies vegan. To make these brownies, I recommend buying good quality cooking chocolate. If you cannot find it, you can use any dark chocolate bar that has more than 50% chocolate (70% is better). 

I've used wholewheat flour in the brownie, you may replace it with all purpose flour or maida.

Remember not to aerate the batter too much, else, you will end up with a chocolate cake and not a brownie. Also, do not over mix the batter, you will get a tough brownie.
