But what is the need to indulge in? One eggless cake rusk a day would do you no harm, especially if made at home. Yes, now the question arises how to get that perfectly baked melt-in-mouth, soft yet crunchy tea rusk at home?
Well, trust me. I am going to break my silence on this eggless Indian cake rusk recipe that I have experimented with one day. Today, I will share the same with you, for I baked one batch yesterday and it reminded me that I had to do the sharing part with you all!
So, here I come with this super soft, yummy eggless cake rusk recipe that is a marriage of healthy grains, without white flour or maida. Of course, you know me by now that I do not bring maida home - for it only adds empty calories with zero health benefits. These are enough of reasons for me not to buy baked goodies outside, for bakeries use all-purpose flour and dalda- the two ingredients that are banned at my home.

How To Make Eggless Cake Rusk at Home
Take 1 cup whole wheat flour.
Sieve whole wheat flour, besan, milk powder, salt, and roasted suji with baking powder.
DO NOT ADD BAKING SODA AT THIS STAGE.
|oatmeal+ water mix|
Mix powdered oats with lukewarm water. Keep aside.
|cream or butter|
In another bowl, mix oil, cream or butter, jaggery powder until light & fluffy. Throw in the spices - fennel, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon. Mix again.
Add chopped nuts to the wet ingredients. Mix with 1 tbsp of curd. Mix again so that the nuts are coated well.
Add grated ginger to the wet ingredients.
Time to mix wet with dry ingredients. Do not overmix the ingredients. I prefer to mix with hands.
Now add baking soda to the dough.
Immediately add vinegar or apple cider vinegar over baking soda.
Add milk if the dough feels dry or too thick. I added 1 tbsp only. You may add up to 3 tbsp.
Look at the dough consistency. Yes, it has to be this thick- reminds you of bread dough, isn;t it?
Going into the microwave/oven. Bake at 180 degrees for 12 minutes and then for 10-15 minutes at 170 degrees.
Allow the cake to sit until it is completely cooled. DO NOT REMOVE/INVERT IT UNTIL IT HAS COOLED DOWN COMPLETELY. Else, it may crumble.
Once it has cooled down completely, cut into thick bars. I made thin cuts and my thinner slices simply crumbled down. Then I made thick cuts, which retained their shape.
Wheat cake rusk bars going into the oven for double making. Obviously, this is still in cake form. Bake at 170 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Then let them sit in the oven for 5 more minutes without the heat on. After 5 mins, it's to change sides - turn each cake rusk upside down and bake for 10 minutes more at 170 degrees. If you still feel, the rusk are soft from inside, bake them a little longer. Allow them to cool down completely before munching on these eggless tea rusks with whole wheat.
Did I say this is one of the yummiest cake rusks you will ever have. Believe me, you will never buy tea rusk eggless from the market again.
