Eggless Wheat Cake Rusk


eggless cake
Eggless whole wheat cakes are a favorite with everyone. I am no exception.

But cakes or any bakes aren't the healthiest food choices.

Nevertheless, it is always better to bake eggless atta cakes at home and that too using the healthiest of ingredients for guilt-free snacking.

This time I wanted to bake a wheat cake for a double delight, since I was craving for biscottis - the double baked beauties.

So I started with my baking experimentation, taking no recipe as my reference. Glad, I was able to do so successfully.

Here I come with an eggless atta cake and cake rusk no egg.

1 cup- multi-grain flour (or you may take whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup-milk powder
1/4 cup-cornmeal (makki atta - optional)

2 tbsp- butter/ghee
1/4 cup- condensed milk (optional - you may take milk instead)

  1. Preheat oven (mw convection) at 180 degrees for 10 mts.
  2. Sieve wheat, cornmeal, milk powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Mix curd, sugar, oil, butter until light and fluffy.

  10. I chose to go the double baking route to bake wheat biscottis, which make my favorite tea-time accompaniment, besides cookies.
  11. Let the cake cool down.
  12. Cut into thin slices and bake for 12 mts at 160 degrees.
  13. Flip the slides and bake for 12 mts at the same temperature.

  1. Hi, I bake in an OTG, not microwave. Shall I use the same temperatures as you mentioned in your post or will they be different for otg cooking ?

    1. I do not own an OTG so unsure about its settings. Ideally a microwave turns into an oven in convection mode.

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…
