If You Have A Sweet Tooth, Stock On These 4 Dessert Mixes For Quick And Delicious Treats
These dessert mixes are easy to put together and don’t disappoint you in terms of flavours
Pancake mix: Whether you are looking to make a quick breakfast or a fun dessert for your little ones, pancakes are an all-time, any-time favourite. And now, it’s super-easy to make light and fluffy American-style pancakes right at home with pancake mixes. All you need to do is add water, mix the batter well and pour it on a hot greased pan, and voila, you have restaurant-like soft pancakes ready. Enjoy it with your family with their favourite toppings, such as fresh fruits, chocolate sauce, peanut butter, honey or whipped cream.
Gulab jamun mix: Craving for hot and sweet gulab jamuns? Worry not, for now, they are just a packet away. Originally, this dessert is made using fresh khoya, which can be tough to source, and the process of making it can be rather tedious too. Therefore, gulab jamun mixes can be super-useful. You just need to add water to the mix and knead the dough gently, make small balls and deep fry them in hot oil. Soak them in sugar syrup for about 15 to 20 minutes and serve them hot.
Cake mix: Extremely popular with novice bakers and with people who don’t have the time to go the whole nine yards—buying a host of ingredients, getting the measurements right, beating the batter to perfection—instant cake mixes can make baking a total breeze. Available in popular and exotic flavours as well as egg and eggless varieties—from decadent chocolate to delicate French vanilla and triple chocolate brownie to red velvet—these mixes can save your day and your party too. Some of them are cooker- and microwave-friendly too, so you don’t even need a high-tech oven to bake a cake.
Caramel pudding mix: Back in the days when fancy desserts were far and few, getting your fix of exotic dessert meant either going to an expensive restaurant or a dessert bar or making a crème caramel at home. One of the most indulgent desserts, custard pudding with its layer of slight bittersweet caramel sauce is hard to master. And so, stocking on a caramel pudding mix makes all the sense. With a pre-mix, you basically skip the hard parts and jump to the easiest bits—cook the powder in boiling milk, cool and pour it in a mould coated with the caramel topping that comes with the packet. Leave it in the refrigerator to chill and enjoy the caramel delight cold.
