Eggless Whole Wheat Orange Cake in Cooker No Sugar


eggless wheat cake
Wondering how to make cake from wheat flour? Well, I tried this eggless whole wheat cake on New Year. The wheat cake turned out soft & yummy.

Taking my healthy cooking spree further, this whole wheat cake without sugar comes as a reward for my efforts toward healthy eating. On top of it, this atta orange cake, as its name suggests, is bursting with the aroma of orange, from the addition of orange juice and zest.

Of course, I never say baked goodies, such as cookies and cakes, are healthy. But yes, when you want to indulge in these goodies, why not choose healthier ingredients to raise their health quotient?



So I always choose whole grains for my recipes, with no place for refined white flour or maida.

  6. Make a well in dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients little by little.
  7. Fold and do not over mix.The batter will be like sticky loose dough. 
  8. Pour the dough into the pan.
  9. Place the baking pan on the stand and heat on a low flame for 40-50 minutes. You may grate almonds over the dough if you want. 
  10. Keep checking intermittently.
  11. When done, take out the cake on a cooling rack.
For baking in microwave (convection-only mode), preheat at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Bake at 170 degrees for 20 mins and then at 160 degrees for 10mts -more or less, depending on your oven settings.
