How To Make Eggless Whole Wheat Cake With Almond Butter, No Egg


This is another of my experiments with baking with whole grains.
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.

1/2 cup- Almond butter (here's how you can make homemade almond butter) - 20 almonds +2 tsp oil
1/4 cup-milk
2 tsp- bournvita/Powervita/1 small sachet of coffee/ 2 tsp of cocoa powder (optional - I added for color)

1 tsp- roasted flax meal (alsi powder) soaked in 3 tsp of water for 10 minutes (optional)

Eggless Almond Butter Cake Procedure
how to make almond butter cake with whole wheat




  1. Soak flax powder for 10 minutes. Then run a spoon into it and you will find its gooey texture, just like an egg.
  2. Preheat oven (microwave convection) for 10 minutes at 180 degrees
  3. 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.
Now add sugar to it. Run the grinder once. Next add curd, milk, and flax mixture. Keep the wet mixture aside.

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.

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?
