Eggless Wheat Cake Rusk


eggless cake
Eggless whole wheat cakes are a favorite with everyone. I am no exception.

But cakes or any bakes aren't the healthiest food choices.

Nevertheless, it is always better to bake eggless atta cakes at home and that too using the healthiest of ingredients for guilt-free snacking.

This time I wanted to bake a wheat cake for a double delight, since I was craving for biscottis - the double baked beauties.

So I started with my baking experimentation, taking no recipe as my reference. Glad, I was able to do so successfully.

Here I come with an eggless atta cake and cake rusk no egg.

  1. Preheat oven (mw convection) at 180 degrees for 10 mts.
  2. Sieve wheat, cornmeal, milk powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Mix curd, sugar, oil, butter until light and fluffy.

  6. Mix dry and wet ingredients slowly. Do not overdo.
  7. It will be a sticky loose dough - we are not making batter here.

  9. It's your wish whether you want to enjoy the cake or bake them further for a double delight.
  10. I chose to go the double baking route to bake wheat biscottis, which make my favorite tea-time accompaniment, besides cookies.
  11. Let the cake cool down.
  12. Cut into thin slices and bake for 12 mts at 160 degrees.
  13. Flip the slides and bake for 12 mts at the same temperature.
  14. Place the wheat cake rusks on a cooling rack and enjoy with a hot cuppa tea.

  1. Hi, I bake in an OTG, not microwave. Shall I use the same temperatures as you mentioned in your post or will they be different for otg cooking ?

    1. I do not own an OTG so unsure about its settings. Ideally a microwave turns into an oven in convection mode.

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…
