Learn Eggless Baking

I get frequent call from individuals in Bangalore asking me for eggless cake baking classes. As most of my cakes are made with egg, I have to tell that I have eggless classes only once a month. This made me look around for those who have regular eggless bakes and cooking sessions in Bangalore.

So, this is what I found. Here are the list of popular bakers who conduct eggless bakes in regular intervals.:

1) Cook and Bake with Deepali http://www.deepalisawant.com/)

Bread Aroma at Cantonment Railway Station

Recently, I started travelling by Kochu Veli Express, instead of the green Garib Rath Train from Kochu Veli, Trivandrum. One reason I switched is that it reaches B'lore earlier than Garib Rath. Moreover,  Kochu Veli stops at Cantonment station, where it's easier to reach the entrance of the station. Also, hiring cabs ( Ola) or the pre-paid counter is right at the entrance.

Charming Cantonment Station 

This station has a old charm - probably it's the granite arches, the big clock, the low platform, or the easy access to the entrance. Apart from these good old feeling, I love the bakery unit running inside the station building.

Bakery World - At Cantonment Railway Station
It's one-of-the-kind bakery unit which is running in this station. If you come to this station by evening time then you can buy fresh loaf, and pastry cakes that are out from the bakery. If you're curious, then you can take a peek inside the bakery and get a glimpse of the activities going inside. Isn't great!

First thing you'll notice inside the unit is the bread baking racks, super big oven, large size mixing bowl ( big brother of kitchen aid ) and such kind.

So, far I haven't seen such a well run bakery unit inside a railway station. And it crosses my mind that it could be a good idea to have similar unit in each station. Probably, someone can prepare a detailed plan and propose a plan to setup a bakery unit in each station.

Subh Yatra!
