Eggless Atta Cake: Gur, Ginger Cake With Whole Wheat



how to cook gingerbread cake


Baking with whole grains can be addictive, especially if you love cakes.

If you spice it up with ginger, you get a delicious spicy cake with atta. Oh yea - a ginger cake.

This is a simple gur gingerbread cake with whole wheat. Call it atta cake or ginger cake, it is bursting with flavors from roasted nuts and spiced up with ginger juices.

Yes, the cake does not use sugar, substituting it with jaggery powder. For a spicy twist, I have added ginger. It works as a tea cake. You may make a dense ginger cake with just 4 key ingredients - eliminate milk, curd, and oil from the recipe and replace them with clarified butter to make a dense tea cake that everyone will love.

But mine is a healthier and lighter version of tea cake with ginger.
