It is always a pleasure to be writing guest posts to my fellow bloggers. Infact, I love the idea of guest posting as it improves virtual relationships between bloggers and makes it a place for some friendly competition and co-existence. I would like to thank Haffa for considering me to be a part of her little lovely blog! Even though Haffa’s blog is quite young, I love the variety of recipes that she has on her blog. I am a big fan of Pakistani food and love to eat them whenever we are out. I have already bookmarked some recipes to try when I get the chance to, like Sooji Ka Halwa and Chapli Kebabs. I sincerely wish Haffa many many more months and years of successful blogging ahead…
After quite a thought, I decided to share this awesome cake that I had prepared as a “thank you” gesture to my elder daughter, Rasha’s friend’s mom, who used to take care of the kids in the absence of my umma. This is one of the best cakes I have made in the recent past, I have to tell… The DDL adds all the zing in the cake, making it a must-try!
