Chocolate and milk blender and bake

The reason

Recently I received  a note from an old friend. The note read -to post him a birthday card to his address. Pretty funny yet thoughtful isnt it. Even friendships need to be picked up from where they are left…Picking up that thread we chatted a while. Those are the friendships I cherish. The ones where I can just pick up from without feeling the years of silence that may have passed…as the unseen priorities take over your adult life. So this post goes out to the brilliant fellow,  who bullied me into decent spoken Hindi, who watched over us as we prepared for our exams and cooling all the stress down by saying.. “Chal  kuch nahi  hoga. “
Happy Birthday dear Deepak… I hope this “post” fits your agenda of the card.  Mind you you already made my kids, some of my other friends and husband jealous… Coz you do get your birthday post.????????

The outcome

I did a set of cupcakes, with the perfect combination-milk and chocolate. What more the lazy self couldn’t be bothered about the stand mixer,  so it’s again all in the blender.
The cupcakes  that came out of the oven.. Have to say we’re the springiest  I have ever baked. 
Watch this little video clip of “Proof”
Watching the oven,  as the bake rose and rose and then popped open made me wonder if I should just call them “milk and chocolate poptops.”
The taste testers  were happy and satisfied. So am sure you will be too.  The prep to the bake took less than half hour.  Do don’t think – just bake.  Just indulge and keep some basics right.
So here we go” To Birthdays and Friendships”

Thankfully with social media, I am in touch with all my school friends and we do have our annual meets etc. These are the guys who have seen you at your good and bad times and also have seen you grow into the person you are right now. Food and friendship always go well together and lucky is your friend to have tasted those spongy delicious looking cake. The blender idea is… Read more »
