About Triple Orange Cake

The recipe produced a moist, not too sweet cake with an almost custard consistency. Heavenly scented with orange and floral notes it made the house smell incredible. But the best part was that it lived up to its siren song aroma. Intensely oranges with a slight, pleasant bitterness, it seems to bloom in the mouth, leaving behind a glorious lingering flavor of almonds. Rich and dense it is best in small pieces, powdered with a dusting of sugar and garnished with something just a little sour like raspberry coulis or a lively lemon curd.

Was it worth all that trouble? Absolutely. Though next time I might use a larger pan to change the ratio of custard center to chewy crust. Or perhaps, bake it in two round cake pans.

Stories About Lollies

When we think about our childhood we can’t help but remember the lovely madness associated with lollies. There were Strawberry Ripple lollies, traffic light lollies, double-dip lollies, Love hearts dip and many more kinds of lollipops. You wouldn’t find one person who wasn’t obsessed and amazed with the many variants of lollies available those days. These retro lollies always manage to bring about a sense of nostalgia to individuals who were obsessed with them when they were little. However, since these retro lollies are easily available in wholesale sweet shops you do not need to live in the nostalgic past. These wholesale shops are even more passionate these days making it easy and convenient for people to indulge in numerous varieties. The fact that newer varieties are even more tempting make these retro lolly shops hugely successful.

Apart from the flavors one is used to in traditional candies, these days manufacturers have introduced better flavors that are absolutely amazing. One would never have thought about enjoying the flavors in a lolly. Finding maple bacon, Bourbon, hot Lemon Ginger in a lolly is not something that you even would have dreamt of. Though these flavors are not all

About Low Fat Ice Creams

Enjoying an ice-cream in summers is a favourite activity for all. Yesterday I felt like having a chocolate flavour. But then I realised that it is too sweet and thought of having something that is not too high in calories.
I was just searching on the internet about the places serving it which offers healthy ice creams.

It is made by whipping the mixture (a combination of milk, cream, eggs, sweeteners and flavourings) with a lot of air. This makes it light and fluffy.

In general, a regular one contains around 140 calories and six grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving.

I also heard that Gelato, which is becoming very popular these days, is mixed very slowly, limiting the amount of air and giving it a thick and dense texture.

Gelato usually has less fat than regular one. So, I tried gelato also. It was creamy and smooth.

I thought of asking my friends for best places serving sugar-free ice creams. There are many places serving sugar free flavours. Earlier there was not much variety in sugar free but nowadays there’s a lot.

There are plenty of other diet-friendly options like

Must Eat Sweets

On contrary to the common belief, a healthy person should always have a dessert after every large meal; doing this is even more important for you if you are a non-dieter. Nutritionists encourage inclusion of a dessert into every large meal as it helps in preventing feelings of deprivation. Most of us tend to do things that we are said not to do; so, when we decide that we will strictly stay away from indulgences, we often end up consuming more of them. Making them regular part of our lives will reduce our cravings for unhealthy food items.

A study conducted recently has revealed that regular consumption of dark chocolate, which is apparently a high calorie food item, is a great way of diminishing sugar craving. During the study, a group of people were allowed to consume dark chocolate every day for a certain period of time. The members in this group were found to consume 15% fewer calories than those who didn’t eat chocolate during the same phase.

Experts say that nutritional deficiency and limited calorie intake result in craving for dense foods. Individuals who eat less tend to have higher craving for sugar-based food
