Today I am very excited to share my first recipe – ‘Eggless Vanilla Cake with Wheat flour and Palm sugar’ with Twins and Me readers. If you are new to baking cakes, this will be a super easy recipe to start with. If you are already a master in baking, this is a slightly different recipe without the usual ingredients which you can give a try.
A nutritious cake with wheat flour and palm sugar
The main ingredient of any cake recipe is Maida (Refined White Wheat flour). I hope many of you will be aware that maida is a slow poison. Maida has a very high glycemic index. This means it will release sugar into the bloodstream very quickly. Frequent usage of maida in your diet can make you vulnerable to type II diabetes. So this is enough reason to look for an alternative to maida and my choice is whole wheat flour ( Here also I would insist you to use home made whole wheat flour, if possible. ) Whole wheat flour contains several vitamins and high fibre content.
And we all know table sugar is doing more bad than good for our health. So I replaced it with palm sugar in my recipe. Palm sugar has a very low glycemic index. I have also used ghee or clarified butter (which is also homemade) instead of cooking oil.
So I have tried to substitute the usual ingredients with nutritious alternatives. This doesn’t make the taste and texture of the cake any lesser.
I am eagerly waiting for you to try this ‘Eggless Vanilla Cake with Wheat flour and Palm sugar’ and share your thoughts with me. (in the comments section)
