5. Now add the whole wheat flour, baking powder and baking soda to a sieve and sift them together for 10-15 times. More the sifting lesser the density of the cake.

6. When everything comes to room temperature you can begin preparing the cake batter and preheat your microwave oven(Microwave mode) or OTG for 10 mins(180 degrees C with both the filaments on).

7. Add the applesauce and melted butter to sifted dry ingredients.

The temperature in OTG would be 180 degrees  C for 25 to 40 minutes.

Please read through the manual of your oven/otg to fix the right temperature and mode.

I used a microwave oven and baked in the microwave for 5.5 minutes.

Keep checking for readiness after 5 minutes in the microwave and after 25 minutes in OTG.

I have used homemade whole wheat flour.

Do not add the jaggery syrup all at once. Add one cup at first and rest add only if required.

The softness and density depend on the flour and the number of times you sieve. The cake was extremely soft and porous. I expected it to be dense as I skipped maida/APF. But to my surprise, it just melted in the mouth. The more you sieve the softer and fluffy the cake would be when you don’t use maida or refined flours.

You can use powdered palm sugar or palm jaggery instead of jaggery. There may be a difference in colour.

The colour might differ depending on the jaggery and apple used.

You can use walnuts or chopped badams instead of tuti fruity.

Wait for at least an hour before slicing the cake.

Go through the manual to fix the preheat temperature and timings.

The timing might vary from 25-40 minutes (temperature 180 degree C ) in OTG at used and tray used.Have a check using a toothpick after 25 minutes.

Using a wet cloth to wrap the tray after taking out of OTG/microwave helps in getting the cake out clean and perfect.

Dip the knife in hot water to slice the cake perfectly.

Sieving the dry ingredients is a major step which prevents disasters.

You can also top it with any nuts of your choice.

It stays good for 3 days at room temperature and 5 days in the refrigerator

Be generous in using butter to grease the pan.

The same cake can be made in a pressure cooker. Please check the steps in my wholegrain cake and oats banana cake recipes

This can be offered to babies above 1 year.

For babies below one year replace jaggery with homemade dates syrup

Please have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to babies.
