Eggless Wheat Cake sweetened with Jaggery

It was the bro's birthday last week and I had intended to bake a cake for him but thanks to Jr.A, he's keeping me on my toes 24/7 and so was not able to find the time.
Its been a long time since I baked, and the baking bug has been nudging me ever since. Finally had to give up. So rocked the lil' one to sleep, gathered all my ingredients and whipped up the mixture in a matter of minutes. I had always wanted to try a cake with wheat and jaggery and this was the best time to try it as the parents are with me.

This cake is to you bro. Belated birthday wishes to you.

This cake is perfect for anyone who is health conscious and it was perfect for them too. Though the cake was not anywhere near to the taste of a regular cake, it was yummy in its own way. The caramel taste of the jaggery stood out very well and it seriously is a good cake to snack on, especially for the seniors.

~*What U Need*~
Wheat flour - 100gms
Milk - 1/2 cup + 2tbsp
Oil - 1/4 cup ( sunflower or rice bran oil)
Soda - 1/4 tsp
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla - 1/4 tsp

Jaggery - 1/2 cup (grated)
Water - 2 tbsp

How I Made it:

Whisk together atta, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl. Melt jaggery with water and allow to bubble. This will make it a bit caramel-y. Strain to remove impurities. Whisk milk, vanilla and oil to this till evenly combined. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches and fold gently.

Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 180 deg C or until done while the skewer inserted comes out clean.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!

  33. hi vimitha... i tried this yesterday for tea after coming from office... y i love eggless cakes is it takes hardly any time to whip up :)... the texture was superb, i din add any coconut like i suggested before, coz my coconut was in the freezer, but w/o it itself it was nice and soft... slightly lower in sweetness, that i would blame it on the jaggery, the one that i got from the store is quite bland :@ therefore, my elder one din like it, she wanted to eat it with sugar, which i din allow!!! hehe... keep going, it's people like u who keep hopeless cooks like us going... :)
