Evolution of Eid Desserts | What I made for Eid

Last ramadan my cousin asked me “Eid er jonno ki banachho? (What are you making this Eid?” and I replied “Oh I haven’t decided yet but I guess I’ll bake something from the new Nigella Lawson book that I got.” Hearing that she paused for a while and said, “I meant, what clothes are you making Zymin apu.” I think that gives you an idea of how excited I get about baking something (something new) for Eid!

Strawberry and Banana Loaf cake | Recipe

My first bake with strawberries this season is a twist to one of my most favourite cakes of all time, the banana bread. This loaf cake is such a delight that youโ€™ll want to bake it everyday… and the best news is, you can-because the recipe is that easy to whip up.

The little pockets of strawberries add a refreshing punch to the warm cinnamon-y base of the cake. Itโ€™s a great comfort cake but you can also turn it into a glamorous dessert by warming a slice in the oven and serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
