banana crumb cupcake
About this Cook
Im a practicing orthodontist, who loves to cook. I have managed to take out time to cook whenever i could, even during those busy times when i was studying. It is my passion! i might not be an expert, but i love to cook just as much as i love to eat! :)
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate is my weakness, which is why brownies and devil's food cake are two of my favourite things to make. apart from the day to day cooking, i love making Pakistani food, chinese, i like BBQ and love to try out new desserts. Needless to say i have a sweet tooth. i can skip dinner but not dessert, what a contrast to my profession!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Biryani! Biryani is a spicy rice dish eaten alone or with a yogurt sauce. Spicy cooked meat is layered with spiced and semi cooked rice, and left over low heat to cook through. AMMAZING!
My cooking triumphs
I think everything that i make which my family likes is a triumph for me.
My cooking tragedies
i was hosting a dinner party n decided to make toffee cream pie. i burnt the toffee once, the second time my toffee was underdone. the third time the egg yolks curdled. i ended up throwing it all away and made cream caramel instead! it was a very disappointing day considering that i had make it a dozen times before

Dark Chocolate Cake II
I'm a chocolate fan .. and this cake:: STTTIISSFACTION!. absolutely soft and fluffy the first day and .. soft and moist the second, i like it better the next day. As some reviewrs suggested i added about a cup of cocoa and strong coffee i dont have an espresso machine or coffee maker so i used instant coffee dissolved in water and it turned out just fine. top it with chcocolate sour cream glaze and wow! i have to keep myself from making this often or i'll gain like hell. i love devils food cake but i hate making stuff out of boxes, it just doesnt give me the satisfaction that creating something from scratch does. this has ended my search for box alternatives to devils food cake....Thankyou so much for sharing

Banana Crumb Muffins
i am bananas for these banana crumb muffins... when these came out of the oven i couldnt help but dig right in, they just melt in your mouth..i added a pinch of cinnamon in the batter but couldnt tell the taste apart it only added a background note to it, i used 4 medium sized bananas and taste was super even when i had to substitute oil for butter in the recipe(but not the crumb i used butter for the crumbs). I make extra crumb mixture toss it in a zip lock bag and freeze it, i can use for apple crumble or these muffins again, but i thaw them down to room temp before using them. thankyou so much for sharing this recipe!
