Eggless Ragi Choco Chip Cake Recipe-Here comes one more random attempt with millet flour in baking without raising agents. I wanted to check the result of not using baking powder/soda in baking. My cookies were 100% successful. This cake got slightly dunked in. And I believe it is because of not using raising agents or curd. I am looking for experts to share their opinion on this. Here is the story of this bake 🙂 I ended up burning the top of my cupcakes but successfully made this cake with my little ones help. My boy is so keen about what mommy cooks for him for every meal. He urges me to plan my every meal, every snack of the week well ahead. He has his own choices and he would love to assist me in cooking especially baking. This was planned to be eggless choco chip cupcakes with ragi and flax seeds without raising agents. I accidentally altered the mode and extended the timing with no proper knowledge and burnt the top of cupcakes. So I poured the second part of the batter to a cake pan,LO did the mixing, garnishing and converted it to tutti fruity cake 🙂 He removed the burnt top of the cupcakes and stored them for this snack box for the coming week. How much should we learn from these kiddos?! I even forgot the exact measurements as this was made long back. I have given the procedure and other details for both cake and cup cake here.
Little one is so fond of occasional treats of cookies and cakes.He wanted me to make something with tutti fruti on seeing the new eggless cake slices from Britannia.Hence I planned to make a similar cake and found this recipe.I just tweaked it a bit as per ingredient availability and with no white ingredients.I didn’t get a small bread loaf pan and various coloured tutti fruti.So I decided make it a cake with added cashews and raisins.My next trial would be replicating the same after collecting all required ingredients.This can be offered to babies above one year. And if you would like to make this cake in a pressure cooker you can refer my recipe of pressure cooker cake here.Have you observed that 99% of my recipes will not have any of the refined/processed/junk/white devil ingredients/?Yeah!That’s the total purpose behind my blog.

MULTIGRAIN CASHEW CARROT CAKE-Yes, you heard it right-A cake with multigrain flour/health mix/sathumaavu that too 100% eggless.I was never so thrilled and excited so far even when I had cooked first and posted my first recipe.Buying an OTG was a long pending one and I was the sole reason for dragging it. I was so sceptical about its usage and worth of the purchase.I was constantly doubting in many aspects and finally, we bought this two weeks back.It is a 24 L Morphy Richards OTG.I have been reading and learning a lot of baking basics, tips and recipes since then.Ask my friends and you would know how much I had nagged them 😉 With some beforehand experience of making cakes in the pressure cooker and as a result of reading a lot from the web, FB groups and books I finally roughly drafted this recipe.The major reference comes from here and FB group OVENDERFUL MOM BAKERS COMMUNITY.I was so sure of baking it healthy without using maida/refined flour/all purpose flour.I have tried cakes with wheat and all millet flours in the pressure cooker. Some turned great and few turned out to be a disaster.So with all learnings, I gathered all courage to experiment with my OTG.I was so very excited when I tried this and had my finger crossed to check the outcome.Thanks to all wonderful friends who helped me by answering my queries and sharing their tips.I am a very beginning stage of baking and I am trying my best to put in all pointers in this post.I shall keep on improving.Do write to me your tips/suggestions.Here goes the recipe of my trial in my OTG.(Pardon me if I have not done the best) Continue reading “MULTIGRAIN CASHEW CARROT CAKE”→
