JOIN US @ A Sweet Punch...one at a time!

A sweet punch...One at a time.

About Us:

Baking a cake or a dessert is not something only experts can do rather, it is something which each one of us can. Many of us are simply intimidated by it. All you need is a good recipe and fresh ingredients, then nothing can go wrong.

Here, we Maria Jose, Divya Kudua & Yours truly are trying to make baking as simple as possible, bringing you a tried and tested recipe every month. It could be either from cookbooks or from other food-blogs.All you need to do is, follow the recipe and create magic! Do not forget to click pictures (if possible all along the way) and post it on the reveal date. Non-bloggers are also welcome. All you need to do is to e-mail us your entries and we will include it for our round-up.

So, what are you waiting for? Don your aprons,grab your whisk and let's get baking!

Your contribution:
1.Try to stick to the recipe as far as you can but you can make changes to suit your religious/ dietary requirements.
2.You CANNOT reveal the recipe before the reveal date. Post it on your blog on the reveal date ONLY.
3.Try and bake every month, but if you cannot it's alright,just let us know.A member can miss upto 5 out of 12 months.
4.Any suggestions for improvement, do  let us know!

What we will be baking:
1.Cakes:Bundts,Filled cakes & Plain cakes
2.Cupcakes & Muffins
3.Roulades & Swiss rolls
5.Cold & hot puddings
6.Mousses, souffles (sweet & savoury)
7.Fruit recipes:Galettes,Cobblers,Crumble

hi Ria....

It's been ages since I baked something.... but after going through your blog it's been so nostalgic for me that I really started missing the whisking, beating and folding batter and the smell of freshly baked goodies.

Your idea of this new group really caught my attention and I'd like to give it a try....at least it will be motivation to stay away from my books and studying boring topics and start to bake again.

Well....I have quite a number of blogs for different groups and I'm starting a new one to post these entries....:) ha ha ha...I don't want people to know that my intellectual persona is quite fragile...and I have these feminine leanings to cooking... baking... etc. Tooooo bad for my 'image' ....lol !!!!

So count me in....I hope to do justice to this and spare time from my studies ... even at this age studying ?? ....I can see your amused smile... :)

Well...studying is another passion of mine and proficiency in various unrelated subjects is my forte.
It's wonderful to see you follow your Mom's talent in cooking...and after going through the wedding pictures I felt as though I was there ( though I heard all the tidbits from Thomas uncle, I missed meeting so many people 'cos of my absence )

I had to attend the contact classes in Bangalore for the Master's degree I'm pursuing now and that's why I was absent there.

Though quite belated....let me wish you and Jobin a wonderful life ahead with God's blessings aplenty on you both :)

lots of love
Rosalind (Rose)

Hi Ria,
I have been seeing these recipes for some time now, I do bake but most of the times it is a flop. I make a mistake somewhere.

Anyway I will be having experts pointing out where I go wrong and also since I have to post it here I am sure I will be extra careful. With this background do you think I can join you?
Please let me know either way @themadscientistskitchen@gmail.com
