Its a long time… Since I baked, since I cooked delicacies…since I got myself devoted to my kitchen.. Don’t know what has happened to me… Perhaps the North Indian summer heat.. .Perhaps the side effects of a new job.. or Perhaps the lot of things cropping up haphazardly or perhaps the lazy monster which stays inside me… Don’t know how to deal with it.. Don’t know how to move forward… It’s all about life and I am sure these kinds of breaks do come and go.. 🙂
This time our Foodie Monday Bloghop theme was Cakes and I being a die hard baker ( people do say so) and love to experiment, how can I leave this opportunity to bake and that too a cake? 😀 Since Berries are always with me either in the fresh form or frozen, hereby I present my Berry Cake with Lemon Drizzle.
The tangy berry flavors + sour lemon taste does give this cake its much required deliciousness… but yes a little more sugar in the same… does make it a complete platter to munch on. 🙂
Let’s have a look on the recipe.
