Lime and sour cream bundt cake

Lime and sour cream cake


I stumbled upon this recipe while making a cake for a colleague's baby shower. I had a whole bunch of limes and while I came across lemon and sour cream cake recipes, I didn't find any for lime. But one can hardly go wrong, right?

So I substituted and made some small changes and the lime and sour cream recipe is ready. If you are entertaining or going for a get together on memorial day, this is a great and easy cake for the occasion.

The tartness of the lime glaze on top really adds freshness to the cake.

Enchorer Kalia

Enchorer Kalia


Summers in India meant mangoes and jackfruits. Growing up, we would visit my thankuma's bari (paternal grandmom) every summer and it was a feast of the summer fruits - jamrul, aam, kathal to name a few.

There are mango trees in the yard and a huge jackfruit tree in the front which would be laden with giant jack fruits. We would eat aam (mangoes) and kathal or enchor as it is called in bengali almost with every meal. 

The ripe jackfruit has a sweet smell and is eaten as a fruit. The unripe one (enchor) is sticky and is generally cooked as a vegetable. 

It has been a while since I had some. So when I found some frozen one in the Indian store, I picked it up. I cooked it very much like a fish or a chicken kalia with onions and ginger garlic. I didn't add any potatoes or shrimp although both of them are popular choices and go very well with enchor or jackfruit.
