Eggless Steamed Biscuit Cake

Looking for an easy biscuit cake recipe?

Yes, this is the right place for it.

I have seen many biscuit cake recipes and was always wondering whether we could make a cake with home-made cookies, since all recipes mentioned using Parle G, Marie biscuits.

 I finally decided to give it a try with the oats, wheat cookies I had baked last night. The cookies turned out a little harder, since I used only 1 tsp of oil and replaced ghee with home-made condensed milk.

Instead of throwing the cookies away, I decided to use them for my biscuit cake experiment. Additionally, I decided not to bake the cake. Instead I chose to steam it. The result did not disappoint; rather, I have got a soft, moist, and delectable cake.
Glad that I did not throw my cookies away.

The eggless biscuit cake recipe in cooker gives you a yummilicious cake that you would want to bake again and again.

Whether you are looking for a biscuit cake recipe in cooker or a baked version, this recipe is a keeper. The best part is i…

This post is inspired by Ritu Mendiratta's oats handvo. I have been planning to make this savory snack for quite some time but could never try my hands at it.When Ritu posted her recipe, it instantly gave me the fillip to give this Gujarati snack a try.

Moong Masoor Dal Idli

Healthy breakfast is the current theme in my group - Healthy Recipes by Homemakers. So we are all coming up with ideas to cook healthy meals for our families, starting with health-friendly breakfast ideas.

Yesterday, I had decided to make kitchudi (a mixed lentil and rice porridge) and soaked moong dal, masoor dal and rice together for lunch. But then when it was time to prepare lunch, I changed my mind and decided to experiment with lentils and rice. I let it remain soaked until evening. In the evening, I ground everything together and kept the batter covered overnight.

Let's see what I was able to cook with the batter.

Ingredients

1/2 cup- yellow moong dal

urad dal- 1/4 tsp
