Mango and Mint Meringue Mess

   Mango and Mint Meringue Mess is an summer-time refreshing dessert.  They are layered with freshly cut fruits with whipped cream and crumbled meringue.  The meringue offers an beautiful crunch needed for this dessert.

This dessert, is originally adapted from Eton Mess, an English dessert which has berries topped with cream and meringue.  Since this summer has started with Mango outburst,  I have used an liberal chops of those instead of Berries.

I have never guessed that Mango and Mint will blend each other beautifully.  This dessert is best had, as soon as they are assembled.  As they have meringue bits, and they tend to get soggy, the more they soak with mango and cream.  So, just have these soon after they get assembled.   I will suggest to prepare the meringue one day before hand, because it gets easier to assemble them.

Minion Macaron with Mango cream

  French Macaron is any Baker's desire.  They are one such bakes, which needs highest precision.  You need to tame these each and every step, yes almost like handling your toddlers :D  For those, who are new to this term, French Macaron is an meringue-based confection which has an usual filling of ganache, buttercream or any fruit jam.  They differ from Macaroons, since they include almond flour and icing sugar for their crispy shell with an feet.

With Mango season around, I made Mango buttercream as an filling, and played around gel colours and edible marker pens with Macarons to get this Minion theme done.  The base recipe is from Pooja Dhingra's The Big Book of Treats.  Please make sure that you age egg whites for 4-5 days for this recipe.  And yes, all ingredients should be brought to room temperature before use.  

Wow, look at these Minion cuties - if you have any Minion fans back at home, you should definitely give this an try.  And yes, considering complexity of this recipe, make sure you follow each and every step.  

The following recipe yields 18 pairs of Macaron.

One Bite Doughnuts

   Hi friends, so, how's summer going in your place?  Telangana is burning like an pre-heated oven.  That said, local newspapers are giving us various tips to stay hydrated.  Obviously, my refrigerator is filled with water bottles and juices.  Still, we can't get hold of that sweet tooth, can we?  :)  That's where these One Bite Doughnuts / Mini Doughnuts comes to the rescue.

    All the craziness started when I first baked these for my daughter's birthday, everyone loved it for its cutey look,  yummy taste and since it is an baked version, it gave an healthy uplift as well.

I made these along with my daughter as an summer project.  She enjoyed colouring the glaze and played with sprinkles.  I would recommend these, as they are not only non-greasy food, but can also tackle sweet carvings on an small portions.  Please do try and let us know.

There are two types of Baking, we can see in any forum - one will be completely catchy and fancy with fondant and icing, and keeps the promise to inspire any layman into baking, other type is nothing fancy, but simple baked treats which is an whole hearted meal by itself and serves as an comfort food.  Yes, our post falls on later, Heavenly Chocolate chip cupcakes, which is an perfect accompaniment to our Tea-time.

These simple treats are yum, and best served warm.  And the best part of this recipe is that, these are made of maida and an part of wheat flour, giving them an additional healthy quotient as an uplift.  They  make an great option for your kids snack break as well.  You can refrigerate and consume them within five days, but please do microwave/reheat for an warm super yum treat.
