"Procrastibaking" - when you're supposed to be studying but you choose to bake instead 😊 .
We used the lemon cake recipe and just added some rose essence, then made a glaze with rose water and icing sugar. And there you have it - a delicious rose flavoured cake πŸ’•βš˜ .
Have a beautiful Wednesday ⚘

Burfee cupcakes 😍
Sunday teatime just got a whole lot better 😊 I used my mum's cupcake recipe and just tweaked it ever so slightly to create these little pops of heaven. Hope your Sunday has been as gorgeous as these cupcakes πŸ’•
.
RECIPE ✏
Burfee cupcakes

125g margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp elachi essence
1 tsp rose essence
1. Beat margarine and sugar till light and creamy.
2. Add eggs 1 at a time and beat well.
3. Sift flour and baking powder together and add to butter mix. Add milk and mix to a smooth batter.
4. Lastly add the elachi and rose essence and mix well. (You can add more of each essence in equal quantities for more flavour if you like). 5. Spoon batter into cupcake cases and bake for 15-20mins at 180 degrees.
Icing
125g butter
3 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp elachi essence
1/2 tsp rose essence

Beat butter until light and creamy. Add icing sugar and mix well. Add milk to bring mixture to a smooth consistency. Then add the essence and mix well. You can add a few drops of green or pink food colour to the icing at this point.
Pipe icing onto cooled cupcakes. I chose to not cover the entire cupcake in icing as I felt it would be too much. Sprinkle with crushed dried edible roses, chopped pistachios or coloured almonds. .

I'm not a fan of eggs - I don't see all the hype about them and why Sunday breakfasts usually always have them πŸ€”. But when @raeesahassim suggested I try these Turkish eggs I decided to give it a go.

BEST DECISION EVER!!! Homemade toasted garlic naans (thanks to mum 😊), topped with garlic and herb labneh, some mavarissa (from @zaatarandzeal), perfect sunnyside up egg, balsamic roasted tomatoes, fresh coriander and dukkah.
Egg-cellent πŸ‘Œ

Make this.
Eat this.
Thank us later 😊

Try this gorgeous easy shortbread recipe for yourself and decide if you love them (you most probably will 😊). It's back to studying for the next few days so kitchen adventures will be few and far between πŸ˜”. I do have a few easy recipes to share though. Have a great weekend πŸ’• .
RECIPE
Shortbread
250g butter
1 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup oil
3 tbsp maizena
Approx. 2 - 2 1/2 cups flour
Beat the butter till light and creamy. Add icing sugar and beat well. Add oil and maizena and beat well. Mix flour in 1 cup at a time to make a soft dough.
Press into a well greased baking pan and bake at 180 degrees for 20-30mins. Cut into squares or rectangles whilst still hot and sprinkle with castor sugar. .

Mughni dhal is a favourite of mine 😊 My naani πŸ’• (may Allah grant her jannah) always cooked it for me and now mum's started making it with a slight twist. I love it this way too and atleast I won't compare to Naani's πŸ˜‰. I also didn't realise that so many of you would be keen to try it out. Here's the recipe --- hope you enjoy πŸ’• .
RECIPE
Mughni dhal with fried patta
Soak 1 1/2 cups mughni dhal overnight
Drain and rinse out.
In a non-stick pot, add 2 tbsp oil.
Add 1 chopped onion and fry until soft.
Add 1 chopped tomatoes and the following spices: β€’ salt to taste β€’ 1/2 tsp green masala β€’ 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander β€’ 1 1/2 tsp ground jeera β€’ 1/2 tsp turmeric β€’ 1/2 tsp chilli powder
Cook all spices together in the tomatoe and onion mix.
Add sliced robot peppers and cook.
Add dhal and simmer for 15mins (or until dhal is soft but not mushy)
Fry slices of patta and place on top of the dhal. Simmer for 10 mins.
Serve with rotis. .

So I finally got back in the kitchen yesterday after a very long time. It's study break week so that means kitchen adventures (maybe). Last night we made seekh kebabs using the recipe off the Shan seekh kebab spice box. We served this with crumbed mushrooms, toasted garlic pitas, mavarissa (from @zaatarandzeal) and a sweet chilli mayo. The salad was a toss together of whatever was available and served with a balsamic and honey vinaigrette. It's safe to say that my kitchen is my happy place πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• . Recipe will be up later... .

Here's some lunch time inspo from one of my favourite recipe books @food_for_royalty. We had this chicken korma with naan and salad the other day. If you have the book, go ahead and try this and if you don't have the book - go on and buy one. Here's hoping I can get some kitchen time in this weekend 🀞. Have a lovely Friday πŸ’• .

I received this lovely Kenwood K-mix a few days ago from the #eidwithstorkbake competition and thought it was only appropriate that the first thing I baked be this Lemon cake (seeing that it was this cake that was the winner). 😊 Scroll through my feed for the recipe or comment here if you are unable to find it. And if you have made it, drop me a comment to let me know how it was ⬇️Thank you @ilovebakingsa and @saaleha_b for this beautiful mixer πŸ’• I know it will be used to make many wonderful bakes 😊 .

Working on year end presentations and I find my mind wandering to this past weekend and this sushi from @onebigsushiroll. I had the prawn California roll which was deee-licious!! This is perfect for those of you who don't care much for raw fish 😊. Served with wasabi (which should not be mistaken for avo like a friend of mine assumed years ago πŸ˜„) and ginger. Give @onebigsushiroll a follow to see where they pop up next and get yourself some of this 😊. Back to work now.. have a lovely day πŸ’• .

A little late but nonetheless - this was the cake requested by my niece for her 4th birthday. The instructions were clear as she had chosen her own picture and it had to be "colours of blue inside" 😊 Also, she had to help bake it and put the "sparkle" on it. She said it was πŸ‘Œ and that was the "best birthday of her entire life!" πŸ’• May Allah keep her smiling and this precious always πŸ’• (Olaf topper made by the talented @sinfulartbynasreen
