Jaggery -Wheat Coco Cake

Cakes are special and it is loved by all age group people. Here is a try of Jaggery -Wheat Cake which I have seen in one of the television show.

I was very happy to note this cake is prepared using jaggery and wheat instead of maida/all purpose flour and sugar. Use of wheat and jaggery is a healthy option and we can enjoy this cake at any time of the day.
Lets see the recipe now :

Things needed :

Wheat flour : 1 Cup
Jaggery : 1/2 Cup or little less
Milk : 1 Cup
Coco Powder : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Ghee /Oil : 2 Tablespoons
Lemon : 1 Teaspoon
Vanilla Essence : 2 to 3 Drops.
Baking Soda : 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt : A pinch

Method :

1. Sieve wheat flour, coco powder, salt and baking soda together. (Sieve twice, so that all the dry ingredients mixes well).

2. Take a big bowl and put jaggery, milk and oil.
3. Mix it well and add lemon extract. Mix it nicely.
4. Add dry ingredients and mix it slowly in one direction.

5. Let all the ingredients mix it well. Add vanilla essence and mix it slowly. Add lemon extract. (Lemon Juice). Mix it nicely.

6. Apply ghee to the baking tray. Sprinkle little dry wheat flour.
7. Pour the ready cake mixture and tap it so that the cake mixture settles well equally.

8. Pre heat the oven for 5 minutes.
9. Keep the cake mixture tray in the oven and let it bake for 25 to 30 minutes ( 180 D .cl).
10.Prick the knife end or spoon to make sure it is done. (The mixture does not stick to the spoon).
11. Take out the tray and place it above the oven for at least 10 minutes.

12. Cut Jaggery - Wheat Coco cake and serve with a cup of tea.

Note :

See that the cake mixture is mixed well. You can use 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk and then mix the mixture. Adding any fruits or dry nuts is optional. There is no sugar or butter in the cake. Adding any dry nuts are optional. It adds to the taste. I have added organic jaggery which is very liquid. If you are using normal jaggery powder it and then melt it with a teaspoon of water, sieve it and then use it.
Time : 30 minutes to bake and 10 minutes to prepare
Serve : As you Like.
