Wheat - Millet flour Cake

This cake was prepared for my son Ravi' s birthday. Just tried this wheat -millet cake and it came out very well and superb outcome. It is easy, simple and healthy cake. 



It is always nice to bake a cake for the family members. I do prepare most of the time. We had a get together at Son Ravi's house.
I have used wheat flour, millet flour/jolada hittu/ sorghum flour, curd, vanilla essence, coco powder, and other ingredients.
Now a days I started using millet flours instead of maida. This recipe has no oil and without much of hassle.

No egg, No White Sugar, No Maida = Wheat - Millet Flour Recipe

Let us see the recipe now :

Ingredients :

Wheat flour : 1 Cup
Millet Flour : 1 /2 Cup
Coco Powder : 3 Tablespoons
Jaggery : 3/4 Cup (I used Joni bella /Organic jaggery)
Baking powder : 1 Teaspoon
Baking soda : A pinch
Salt : A pinch
Curd : 1 Cup
Ghee : 1 Tablespoon (Optional)
Almond flakes : 2 Teaspoons (Optional)
Lemon : 1 Teaspoon ( 1/2 of one lemon)
Vanilla Essence : A few drops. ( 2 to 3 ).
Dates : 15 to 20 (Optional)

Method :

1. Sieve wheat flour, millet flour, coco powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt together. (Sieve twice so that it mixes well).



2. Take a big bowl and add curd, jaggery and ghee. Mix it well using a tablespoon or eggbeater.

3. Add lemon and stir nicely. Add vanilla essence and stir for another 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Add sieved flour and mix it slowly. Let it mix well.

5. Take a baking tray and apply oil /ghee and pour the ready cake mix.


Just tap it slowly so that it spreads around and evens the cake mix. Spread some almond flakes on the top.

 6. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes and place the cake tray in the oven. Bake it for 30 to 35 minutes.


7. Check the cake is done with a edge of knife or spoon. Prick it slowly and the cake should not stick to the knife edge. So cake is done.
8. Remove it from the oven and place it on the top to cool down.

9. Remove the seeds from the dates and smash it nicely. Make a ball shape.
10. Roll the date mixture on the butter paper /banan leaf to get it spread.


11. Place this flattened dates mixture on the top of the cake and  rap it around the cake.Press a little.

12. This rapping of dates mixture adds to the taste. Cut and serve with a cup of coffee or tea or whenever you want to.

Note :

Use of dates is optional. It is just an creative work and adds to the taste. You must use soft dates.
You can add little milk if you feel the cake dough is thick.
While mixing the flour to wet ingredients let it be bit slow and it should be done on one direction.
If you are using normal jaggery powder, soak it in curd and it melts. You need to mix it well.
Adding ghee is purely optional. I have added.
Time : 40 Minutes
Serve : According to your wish.
