Eggless Cranberry Choco Beet cake
As I had mentioned in my previous post of eggless red velvet cake, this is just a simple alteration to the recipe and baked as a cake with raising agents. The cranberry and choco added enhanced the taste and the cake was super fluffy, soft, porous and moist. I am sure you love it and your kids will keep asking for whole wheat beet cranberry cakes 🙂 I am a novice baker, please read through the notes, this complete guide to healthy baking and proceed. I hope I have explained to my level best.

I have used homemade whole wheat flour. You can use store bought flour too.
The cake was extremely soft, porous and moist. I expected it to be dense as I skipped maida/APF.But to my surprise, it just melted in the mouth.
Honestly the choco flavour wasn’t predominant.
You can use powdered palm sugar or brown sugar instead of jaggery.
Ensure that the butter is removed from buttermilk.
You can use any dry fruits instead of cranberry.
Wait for at least an hour before slicing the cake.
Go through the manual to fix the preheat temperature and timings. My OTG suggested preheating at 180 degrees C for 10 minutes.
The timing might vary from 25-40 minutes depending on the oven used and tray used. Have a check using a toothpick after 25 minutes.
I used rolex brand baking pan measuring 19 cm*4.8 cm(heart shaped). The quantity specified was exactly perfect enough to hold the cake after baking.
Using a wet cloth to wrap the tray after taking out of OTG helps in getting the cake out clean and perfect.
Dip the knife in hot water to slice the cake perfectly.
Flaxseed gel, buttermilk and oil replaces the egg.
Sieving the dry ingredients is a major step which prevents disasters.
I used gingelly oil (just a few drops).
It stays good for 5 days at room temperature.
Be generous in using butter to grease the pan.
Ensure to have tried all the ingredients individually before trying this for babies.
Please consider all family history of allergies before trying any new food.
