Perhaps you have seen me experiment a lot with almonds. You have also seen my cookie experiments with almond butter. This time I have come up with an almond butter cake with whole wheat.
If you have been wondering how to make eggless whole wheat cake with almond butter, then this recipe may come in handy.
Since my almond butter banana ice cream experiment was a hit, my hands have been itching to include almond butter in my bakes. This was the perfect day for another experiment.

The whole wheat cake without egg is going to be a hit in your family. We loved this eggless cake, bursting with almond butter flavor.
I am sure the whole wheat cake recipe won't disappoint you either.
The best thing about this baked beauty is that you can experiment with flavor - add either bournvita to tempt the taste buds of kids or include coffee for flavor for elders. All in all, it does not have an overpowering taste or flavor of any of these flavoring agents.

Eggless Almond Butter Cake Procedure
|how to make almond butter cake with whole wheat|
- Soak flax powder for 10 minutes. Then run a spoon into it and you will find its gooey texture, just like an egg.
- Preheat oven (microwave convection) for 10 minutes at 180 degrees
- Let's first make almond butter. - Dry roast almonds and then let them cool. Then grind them to powder. I used pista as well along with almonds. However, including pistachio is optional. Add 1 tsp of oil and green cardamom. You may add cinnamon and fennel seeds as well. Run the mixer again until you get a butter like texture. Be patient, as it may take a few minutes and your grinder may get hot. Here's the video to make almond butter at home.
Sieve baking powder, baking soda, salt, bournvita/coffee, and wheat flour.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour wet mixture slowly. Keep mixing. Do not overdo. Add lime juice or vinegar and give it one final mix.
Grease a baking tin and pour the batter, which will be like very sticky dough. It is unlike the typical cake batter.
Bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees. The baking settings may vary from one microwave to another.
Insert a toothpick to see if the cake is baked properly.
Cool the almond butter wheat cake on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Cut into slices and enjoy another healthy cake.
