Have you tried baking your cake with wheat flour and palmsugar? Check out our super easy recipe for Eggless Vanilla Cake made with nutritious ingredients.

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)

Recipe Notes

Tips

  • Preheat the oven until both the rods turn red.
  • While baking if you feel that the top layer of the cake darkens, then you can change the heating mode to 'Heat only the lower rod'
  • I have used OTG (Oven Toaster Griller), if you are using a microwave oven you can adjust the temperature as required.

Nutrient values

Since we have replaced Maida (Refined white wheat flour), Cooking oil and Sugar with Whole wheat flour, Ghee and Palm sugar respectively, this cake will definitely be nutritious compared to the cakes baked with the usual ingredients.

Side effects

There is no direct side effect associated with this simple cake. However it is good to make sure, if your kids are allergic to any of the ingredients used in the making of this Eggless Vanilla Cake.
