Eggless, Sugarless Cornmeal Cake

cornmeal cake
Cakes have been my a favorite indulgence for me. But since I turned a health freak, I try to avoid processed foods. For one-time indulgence, I wanted to try an eggless cornmeal cake recipe. Yes, this is one guilt-free treat that you can savor during festivities. If you are looking for eggless cake recipes for the Christmas season, this lemon cornmeal cake does fit in well.

I have added banana to the cake, but you are always free to choose fruits that you like. Orange cornmeal cakes are loved by one and all. If you want to try an eggless orange cake with cornmeal, go ahead with this recipe and include 1/2 cup orange juice along with banana. Adding 1/2 tsp of orange rind will enhance the flavor. Exclude milk from this recipe, replacing the same with orange juice.

Let's try this healthy eggless sugarless cornmeal cake.


This is one eggless lemon cornmeal cake that uses no sugar, though you are free to choose your ingredients. Add nuts of your choice to make it a fruit cake. You may add tutty fruity to make it a tutty fruity cake. The options are endless with cornmeal cake.

Just go ahead and give it a try and do share your experience. Would love to hear back from you.

Ingredients


1 cup - makki atta (cornmeal)
1/4 cup - oat meal (powdered oats)
2 tsp - olive oil (or any vegetable oil)
1/4 cup - milk or 1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup - yogurt/curd
1 - banana (pureed) (+ 1/2 tsp orange rind - if you want orange cornmeal cake)
Jaggery (gur) - may vary - I added 3 tbsp of powdered jaggery
1/2 tsp- baking soda
1 tsp- Lime juice (vinegar) (I do not use baking powder for most o f my cakes. You may add 3/4 tsp of baking powder as well)

Cornmeal Cake Procedure

  1. Sieve cornmeal, oatmeal and baking soda. 
  2. Keep aside.
  3. Peel banana and puree it in a blender.
  4. Add milk, curd, jaggery, and oil to the blender and whisk again until all ingredients combine.
  5. Fold wet ingredients into the dry ones. Do not overdo!
  6. Meanwhile, take a big heavy base kadahi/vessel/cooker. Add salt/sand. Keep a stand over it.
  7. Switch on the gas.
  8. Grease a baking pan. I used a steel bowl this time.
  9. Sprinkle lime juice on the batter and immediately pour it into the baking pan.
  10. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil.
  11. Cover the cooker without whistle.
  12. Bake for 50-60 minutes on slow flame (took me almost an hour). The time may vary. Please keep an eye on your lemon cornmeal cake. You may bake the same in microwave convection at 180 degrees for 30 mts or little longer until the skewer comes out clean. Do preheat the oven for 10 mts at 180 degrees. 
  13. When done, let the cake sit on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes.
  14. Cut lemon cornmeal cake into slices and enjoy healthy bites.

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

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…
