How To Make Eggless Wheat Cake Rusk at Home: Easy Fennel Biscotti Recipe


Eggless biscottis or sauf rusks have been a childhood favorite this side. I have fond memories of my teen years - everyone has! My memories make me nostalgic and  some of my food experiments connect me to my roots. Yes, I have been in love with simple fennel rusks since childhood, for these double baked beauties were the first snack I learned to savor.

I remember waking up everyday to a glass of hot milk and plain rusks before me. My dearest mom would make sure her kids never went hungry and also woke us with a smile on her face and a glass of milk in her hands.

The days of such pampering are long gone, for I kick-start my day with 2 glasses of lukewarm water nowadays. 

Yes, I have become more health conscious now, though I always have been a health freak. Mom is still ready to pamper me this way when I go to meet her, but my health conscious side does not allow me to get this kind of pampering now.

Relatives and close friends have seen my transformation. But this does not mean I was bulky types, though I wasn't in the best shape earlier.

When the healthy bug bit me, it has been no looking back :), with God's blessings.

Anyway, I won't hijack my eggless biscotti post with my nostalgic memories.

eggless whole wheat cake rusk with fennel

Tip: The dough for cake rusk has to be loose & sticky; unlike typical cake batter 


Healthy Cake Rusk Recipe Ingredients
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup oats (ground ) (you may replace with whole wheat or any other healthier grain)
1/2 cup besan (gram flour)
1/2 cup- milk powder
1/4 cup- milk
1/2 cup orange juice (2 oranges) or lukewarm water
1/4 cup olive oil or saffola or any other vegetable oil (you may even use butter or ghee)
1 tsp - baking powder
3/4 tsp- baking soda
1/2 cup- jaggery/sugar powder (more or less depending on your taste) - I have used jaggery
1 tbsp- fennel seeds or saunf
1 tsp- ACV/apple cider vinegar or normal synthetic vinegar
1 pinch- salt




How to make Eggless Wheat Cake Rusk at Home
  • Preheat oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. (Microwave convection)
  • Grease a baking pan and keep aside.


Sieve wheat flour, powdered oats, besan, milk powder, salt,and baking powder. Do not add baking soda at this stage.


In a separate bowl, mix jaggery powder, fennel seeds, and heat the mixture. 


 Mix this hot water mixture with oil. 


Mix with milk and acv or vinegar. 


Whisk the liquid ingredients well.
Add baking soda to this water-oil bowl.


Look at the frothy mixture. 


Immediately mix wet ingredients with dry ones. Use your hands for mixing (I find it better than using any accessory).


It will be like a sticky dough. For rusk or cake rusk, this is the perfect batter consistency - the thicker the batter.  Pour into the baking pan.



Bake for 20 minutes at 170 degrees. I baked longer and my cake browned too much at the top.
Check if done or you can bake for a few minutes longer.


Take out the cake on a wire rack. Let it cool down for 20 minutes. Cut into pieces for cake rusk.


Place slices on a baking tray. Make sure there is some gap between each piece.
Bake one side for 10 minutes at 160 degrees
Bake another for 8-10 minutes.
Check if the cake rusks are done. If you find them little soft, you may bake a little longer.


Now enjoy this healthier cake rusk recipe, prepared with wheat and oats. You may check the other biscotti recipe shared on my blog earlier.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

OPOS Sambar: Hotel-Style Sambar With No Fuss; Ready in 10 Minutes

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost!

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
