Eggless Cake Rusks/Biscotti

eggless cake rusk
Light, fluffy, and crunchy, these eggless cake rusks are a breeze to process. Of course, if you have a good cake recipe at hand, you can create these crunchy bites and surprise your family & friends with these crispy delights.

I have been fondly in love with rusks. In my mom's home (mayka), we usually enjoy rusks with morning tea. The local confectionery in Patiala (my home town) sells crispy, crunchy biscottis. I had never thought I would be baking them on my own one day. But this wasn't sudden. After marriage, I had stopped eating the double-baked cakes because I do not like the taste of rusks available in Delhi. I was looking for a taste of my Patiala cake rusks, so every time I would visit my mom's place, I would bring bundles of these along.

But then ever since I started baking cookies myself, experimenting with a lot of options, I was curious enough to try my hand at biscottis. I usually bake suji cakes only and hardly use maida in any of my recipes. But since I had a failure at baking suji rusks some time back, I wanted to be successful this time. So thought of using a maida cake recipe. Voil!

The results did not disappoint; rather, I have baked some of the tastiest cake rusks I have ever had all my life.

I am extremely happy with the results, because my dad loves cake rusks, and I can make these for him. Couldn't be happier !!!!!!!!!!!

On top of it, both my father-in-law and mother-in-law are diabetics, so I can take a plunge into making sugar-free biscottis for them, because this is the first thing in the morning that they have!

Let's go to the recipe quickly!

Recipe

2 cups - All-purpose flour (Maida)
1/2 cup- Oil (I used saffola)
2 tsp - ghee/butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup - Milk powder
1/4 tsp -cinnamon powder (dalchini)
1/4 tsp-nutmeg powder (jaiphal)
1/4 tsp-cardamom powder (elaichi)
1 tsp- Apple Cider Vinegar (you may use any type of vinegar)
1 cup -Milk/condensed milk (I used milk)
1 tbsp -curd/yogurt
1 tsp-baking powder
1tsp -baking soda
3 tbsp -sugar

cake rusk



  1. Preheat oven for 10 minutes (180 degrees). I use Microwave convection.
  2. Keep a baking tray greased or place a parchment paper over it. I used baking pan only.
  3. Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda two-three times.
  4. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom powders.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
  6. Whisk wet ingredients well so that they get fluffy.
  7. Slowly mix wet ingredients with dry ones. 
  8. Use your hands for mixing.
  9. It will be a sticky dough.
  10. You may divide the dough into two halves, if possible. 
  11. But I didn't divide. I simply put the entire batter, which resembles dough, into the greased baking pan.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes. It will rise beautifully.
  13. Let the cake cool for 20-30 minutes.
  14. Cut the cake into two halves.
  15. Make a cut horizontally because we want to make thin rusks. 
  16. Cut into similar sizes.
  17. Place on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes at 160 degrees.
  18. Turn the pieces upside down.
  19. Bake the other side for 8-10 mins at 160 degrees.
  20. Let them cool on a wire rack.
  21. Enjoy these crunchy bites with a hot cup of milk or tea.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
