As the Ramazan blessings are making their way to our homes, and so will be some family friends to meet and greet for the arrival of Ramazan.  So I thought of doing some preparations to greet the guests. It is our family tradition to have a get together before Ramazan where close family and friends discuss the rituals of the blessed month. Other than that, on these special eves, it’s impossible to do a lot of dishes and guests often come at tea time so instead of making complicated and time consuming dishes, it’s better to make some tea time snacks. I love to bake snacks and the butter cake is the key snack and tea essential that everyone loves to dip in their cup of tea . This recipe is so easy, quick and health friendly that you all would love to try it at least once.
