Well I won't give any excuses for my prolonged absence from blogging...!!!
The only thing I can say is that YES I'M BACK !!!
Hope you all had a great Diwali and are gearing up for the festivities of Christmas and New Year !!!
Sometimes its the simple things in life which get lost in the search for new and unique...
It was a surprise when I realised  that I had not tried this simple madeira cake .It was lost in my experiments of chocolate,banana and other speciality cakes. 
This cake is going to be on my fav list now for days to come ...and as I am writing this I just cant stop myself from taking another bite of this delectable cake !!
I am just loving it !!
