Mother's Day

Hope all the lovely mothers had a wonderful day!

I have been wanting to maintain a stitchy journal - if not for anything, just for my own memories. And look what V made for me this Mother's day

She made a journal for me!! I was so touched. She did not have any hand made paper, so used plain A4 sheets. And a very cute card

She also baked this lovely Mango Semolina cake


Here's the recipe:
Ingredients:
Semolina - 1 cup
Mango puree - 1¼ cup ( 1 large mango) 
Sugar - ½ cup (you can add upto ¾-1 cup depending upon the sweetness of the mango and your tastebuds) 
Oil - ¼ cup
Baking Soda - 1 tsp 
Baking powder - ½ tsp 
Milk - 2-3 tbsp 
Vanilla Essence few drops (optional) 
Some chopped nuts of your choice for garnish ( I used almond, pistachios and cashewnuts)
Method
Peel the mango skin, cut them into cubes. Add the mango and sugar in a blender cup and blend them into a fine puree.
In a bowl take the milk, baking soda, baking powder, Semolina, mango puree and gently mix them well. Let it stand for 10-15 mins.
Add the oil and the vanilla essence and gently fold them.
Preheat oven to 180° for 10 mins. Pour the batter into a greased pan. Garnish with chopped nuts and bake for 30 mins.
A toothpick inserted should come out clean.
Let it stand for about 5 mins. Remove from oven, let it cool down completely. Demould, cut and serve.

Totally made my day!!

That's about it from me today friends. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Au Revoir.. Keep Crafting..
