  •   Baking excites me to the point that I feel de-stressed whenever I tried something different, learnt something new in the process, just like this cake. Till date I have never tried or tasted a yeasted cake before.  Yeast to the best of my knowledge  is good for making breads, and in that too I sometimes failed. So when Natalia of Gatti Fili e Farina  challenged us to make a traditional Savarin cake, I was not sure that I would love to […]
