Dry Fruits Cake (With Whole Wheat Flour and Jaggery) Recipe

imageIt has been prepared with whole wheat flour and jaggery with a hint of cinnamon and cardamom flavor. Lot of chopped dry fruits have been added to it. I have used oil instead of butter.

It is a delicious cake and pairs well with a cup of hot tea/coffee.

As you must have noticed by now, I have replaced unhealthy ingredients by healthier ones. So, it will serve as a healthy snack for your kid as well. When you kid comes running for biscuits, give him a piece of scrumptious cake, enriched with dry fruits.

  • 3/4 Cup Jaggery Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Toned Milk

  • 1 Cup Chopped Dry Fruits Mix (Almonds, Cashew nuts and Raisins)

METHOD 

  1. Preheat oven at 180°C and grease a cake tin (7″ Baking Tin).
  2. Mix jaggery powder and oil in a bowl and beat it properly so that no lumps remain in the mixture.
  3. In another bowl, whisk eggs, one at a time and transfer contents to oil-jaggery mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, sieve whole wheat flour and baking powder twice.
  5. Add 1/4 cup of dry mixture to wet mixture and mix it using a spatula.
  6. Add milk when you have difficulty moving the spatula.
  7. Repeat the process till dry mixture is finished.
  8. Add cinnamon powder, cardamom powder and chopped dry fruits.
  9. Pour the mixture into a greased tin and bake at 180°C for 25-30 minutes.
  10. Insert a toothpick/knife in the center of the cake to see if it comes clean.
  11. Your cake is ready if toothpick/knife comes clean else continue to bake for additional 5-10 minutes.
  12. Let cake cool down completely before cutting into pieces. If you do not let it cool , it will crumble while cutting.

TIPS/SUGGESTIONS

  1. You can use white sugar/brown sugar if jaggery powder is not available.image
  2. You can use jaggery and sugar in 50-50 proportion.
  3. If jaggery powder has a granular texture, grind it in a mixer-grinder for a minute or two.
  4. If you do not have cinnamon powder/cardamom powder, dry roast cinnamon/ cardamom and grind it in the grinder. Then, use a fine sieve to get the powder.
  5. If you feel that cake is browned from the top but yet not cooked. Cover the cake with an aluminium foil and continue baking.
