How To Make Eggless Whole Wheat Cake With Almond Butter, No Egg


This is another of my experiments with baking with whole grains.
Perhaps you have seen me experiment a lot with almonds. You have also seen my cookie experiments with almond butter. This time I have come up with an almond butter cake with whole wheat.

If you have been wondering how to make eggless whole wheat cake with almond butter, then this recipe may come in handy.

Since my almond butter banana ice cream experiment was a hit, my hands have been itching to include almond butter in my bakes. This was the perfect day for another experiment.

The whole wheat cake without egg is going to be a hit in your family. We loved this eggless cake, bursting with almond butter flavor.

I am sure the whole wheat cake recipe won't disappoint you either.
The best thing about this baked beauty is that you can experiment with flavor - add either bournvita to tempt the taste buds of kids or include coffee for flavor for elders. All in all, it does not have an overpowering taste or flavor of any of these flavoring agents.

Eggless Almond Butter Cake Procedure
how to make almond butter cake with whole wheat




  1. Soak flax powder for 10 minutes. Then run a spoon into it and you will find its gooey texture, just like an egg.
  2. Preheat oven (microwave convection) for 10 minutes at 180 degrees
  3. Let's first make almond butter. - Dry roast almonds and then let them cool. Then grind them to powder. I used pista as well along with almonds. However, including pistachio is optional. Add 1 tsp of oil and green cardamom. You may add cinnamon and fennel seeds as well. Run the mixer again until you get a butter like texture. Be patient, as it may take a few minutes and your grinder may get hot. Here's the video to make almond butter at home.
Now add sugar to it. Run the grinder once. Next add curd, milk, and flax mixture. Keep the wet mixture aside.

Sieve baking powder, baking soda, salt, bournvita/coffee, and wheat flour.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour wet mixture slowly. Keep mixing. Do not overdo. Add lime juice or vinegar and give it one final mix.
Grease a baking tin and pour the batter, which will be like very sticky dough. It is unlike the typical cake batter.
Bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees. The baking settings may vary from one microwave to another.
Insert a toothpick to see if the cake is baked properly.
Cool the almond butter wheat cake on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Cut into slices and enjoy another healthy cake.

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…
