How to make vegan lentil cake

  1. Make lentil puree if you have not stocked it. The lentil puree will remind you of aquafaba.
  2. Take 1/2 cup arhar dal and 1/4 cup moong dal. Boil it in 2 cups of water for 4 whistles or until the dal can be mashed. Or strain the dal and grind it. Keep 3/4 cup for cake - rest can be used for sambar or to make cookies. I will share the lentil cookie recipe as well.
  3. Allow it to cool down completely.
  4. Preheat microwave convection/oven at 170 degrees for 10 minutes.
  5. Process banana along with cinnamon powder and olive oil in a food processor. 
  6. Mix with lentil puree, jaggery powder, and flax seeds powder.
  7. Run the processor until the wet mixture is light and fluffy.
  8. Meanwhile, sieve urad dal, rice flour, baking soda, and baking powder. I did it in processor.
  9. Sieve it well for 4-5 times.
  10. Next mix with cocoa powder and almond powder.
  11. Mix dry and wet ingredients.
  12. Do not overmix. If the batter looks too thick, add water little by little until it is ribbon-like in consistency.
  13. Grease a baking pan and pour the batter into it.
  14. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 170 degrees, depending on your oven settings.
  15. Allow the vegan cake to cool down before slicing.
  16. I went ahead with frosting this time. Not the typical creamy frosting. I am not good at it either. But it was certainly a baby step in that direction.
  17. If you are interested in frosting, take 1/4 cup almond meal, 1 cube of paneer (vegan users may take coconut condensed milk instead, 1 tbsp of almond butter, 2 tbsp honey or more (use sugar for vegan cake frosting recipe), 2 tbsp hung curd (again, vegan users may skip it and add lime juice instead). Run all the ingredients in the processor until light and fluffy.
  18. Mix with choco chips or chocos and spread it like a layer . You know it better than me. 
  19. Enjoy vegan cake eggless, sugarfree, and nutrient-rich.
