Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.

Eggless Gluten-Free Orange Cookies:Refined Sugarfree Baking Without Baking Powder

When it comes to healthy cookies, I want to experiment with simple ingredients to give you a simple cookie recipe, which is easy to make/bake in a cooker, on a stovetop, and/or in an arifryer, oven, or convection. All of my cookie recipes can be tried with all appliances and equipment. You do not need fancy stuff here to bake deliciousness in your kitchen, do you? Na, you do not! Seriously.


Why need an electric mixer when you can prepare the dough with hands? After all, not everyone has the fortune to buy one. Worry not! These simple cookie recipes come to you with simple ingredients and require easily available equipment. Even a spoon/spatula can do the work of a whisk. In fact, when I did not have a hand whisk, I would use a spoon. I do have an electric whisk, but I a…
