Baking with Bacchas

Le meridien Delhi regularly does experiential events. This time it was a special mom and kids baking class that was on offer. I took along my bacchas to learn the basics of baking. The event is very reasonably priced and is a regular affair at this iconic hotel. The pastry chef decided to demonstrate two desserts and considering my eggless restriction graciously agreed to teach me the eggless version.
We learnt to make a Mixed Berry Flan and an Orange Cream caramel . I loved the fact that the chef personally supervised us and spoke about the nityy gritties of baking. For eg; the pastry  base needs to be warmed or not to overfill the flan cups. These simple recipes will make you feel like a professional chef and I can’t wait to impress my guests with these delectable goodies. For the benefit of my readers I am hereby sharing a recipe that I learnt that day.
