The third recipe that I am going to post under the theme “Latin American Cuisine” is the Sweet Potato Pone which is also popularly known as Potato Pound of Belize. It is a traditional dessert of Belize(formerly known as British Honduras). Once you have grated sweet potatoes ready, you can whip this dish in no time. This party pleaser is a vegan dessert, making it perfect for all the vegetarians and vegans.
Looking healthy alternatives for regular potato fries? How about some fiber-rich Baked Jicama Fries? Yes, that’s what I am going to share today. So what is Jicama(pronounced as hee-cama)? It is an edible root grown in the warm climates of Central America, the Caribbean, the Andes Mountain regions, and Southern Asia, where it’s an essential as well as an extremely versatile food source. It is popularly known as Mexican Yam Bean or Mexican Turnip.

We are down to last two recipes. For Y, I am going to share Christmas cake roll recipe famous in Swiss, Belgium and other European countries. It’s the Yule Log cake or Yule log roll. Yule log is a delicious, moist vanilla cake rolled and shaped to look like a tree branch which then smothered with chocolate whipped cream frosting. This recipe is surely a feast for the eyes and mouth.
Today’s I am going to share a simple cookie recipe from China, to be exact it is the Chinese Butter Cookies. X is always a tricky alphabet in these A-Z blogging marathons. Last year I named my post with an ingredient starting with X which I used in my recipe. It was the vegan mango ice-cream. This year I am not going with the component name but the generic recipe name – Xiaodianxin. Xiaodianxin means cookies in Chinese.
After Gujiya, here is my second recipe from our India – Pav Buns or as the title says Whole Wheat Pav buns with vital wheat gluten. Homemade Pav buns were on my to-do list for quite a long time and what’s better than posting it during the blogging marathon? So here comes, whole wheat pav buns for the alphabet W.
After two cakes, I am back with my yeast based bread. This time it’s the famous Czech Christmas bread called Vanocka. It’s braided sweet bread with blanched almonds and raisins. As I managed to prepare a decent challah, I thought giving it a try to the multi-layered braided Vanocka.
If it was sheet cake yesterday, then it has to be cupcake today. :-) But instead of a cupcake, I am going to present you ramekins cake. Here is my single serving eggless upside down pineapple cake, prepared in ramekins. Again, I followed my sponge cake recipe went with the half the measure and this correctly yields four individual sized cakes.
Finally, I am posting a cake recipe for this blogging marathon. I am glad that I am sharing our family favorite – Tres Leches Cake, of course, the eggless version. :-) We all know that this is a famous Mexican cake and Tres means three and leches mean milk. It’s a sponge cake soaked in three milk mixture; Whole milk /heavy cream, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. I did not use any butter for this recipe. It’s light, spongy cake with the air bubble, and this texture helps to absorb the milk and make it moist and juicy.
For the alphabet S, I am going to present Snicker Doodle Cookies from Germany. I usually write down the recipe list for my entire mega marathon and the first one that I wrote was “S for Snicker Doodle Cookies.” This soft and chewy cinnamon flavored cookie is a treat for everyone. Even the non-sweet tooth person like me can gobble these cookies anytime, and I love this especially with milk. Ok, let’s blame it on the cinnamon. :-)
