Pumpkin Scones (Light and Fluffy)

Pumpkin Scones01

Pumpkin is a super food that can be used to make savoury or sweet dishes. You might like to surf and find some yummy pumpkin recipes on this blog. Here come my favourite pumpkin scones for breakfast. Scones, basically simple biscuits, served with cream and quality berry jam, are well-known as Devonshire Tea. Many different versions are enjoyed around the world though. Scones are easy to be whipped up in a short time. I love to make more and reserve some for early mornings. Just lightly reheat them and they will taste as nice as those fresh from oven. The sweet pumpkin puree and pepitas make these scones taste even more delicious and contain more nutrients. Nothing can beat these scones enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee.

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken01

Would you be scared off by its name, butter chicken? It sounds you might intake too much fat. No worries in fact. Although butter is one of the key ingredients that helps create a fragrant sauce that you’d love, you can reduce the amount of butter to your liking. That’s the beauty of home cooking. This recipe yields the minimum amount of butter and just right to make the sauce smooth and fragrant enough.

Butter chicken, a traditional Indian dish, is very popular, with many versions evolved around the world. What I like about this dish is the fragrant spices incorporated that are very good to our health. Some Indian dishes are very spicy and hot, but this butter chicken dish is quite mild. It’s a great family dish and a hit with my kid, served perfectly with naan bread or steamed rice.

If you love tea and fluffy cakes, this earl grey tea chiffon cake is for you. Even though you don’t drink tea, you’d like it after the first bite. This elegant chiffon cake doesn’t taste too sweet. The earl grey tea liquid and tea leaves smell so fragrant. That’s why this cake is well liked by my family. For me, it’s truly a bliss while having a cup of coffee or tea with a little piece of this soft and fluffy cake, couching to read a favourite book.
