Ragi eggless Cake

The cake that was not…Yes, I didn’t get any appropriate title for this beautiful cake which happened accidentally!  The Ragi Pancakes which I made this weekend and posted  before this cake came into existence, left me with surplus batter sitting in my fridge.  Not knowing what to do with the batter I just added a few spoons of chocolate syrup, a handful of nuts and baked it. Voila’ this pretty came into life!

Sometimes accidents do bring sweet results, and this Ragi Cake is one such 🙂

Method:  Sift the two flours and add baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in it.

Take another vessel and add sugar and oil in it. Whisk it till the sugar is dissolved. Pour the curd and the chocolate syrup into it and mix it lightly. Add a few nuts of your choice, I added a few almonds to the cake batter.

Add this liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and gently stir it with light hands for 7-8 times. Pour the batter into the baking tin.  Sprinkle a little of granulated sugar over the batter.

Grease a baking tin, I used the Jelly mold for this cake.  Preheat the oven to 180°C for 10 minutes keeping the baking vessel inside the oven.

Take out the hot vessel from the oven carefully and pour the prepared cake batter into it.

Bake the Ragi cake for 30 minutes at 180°C . Remove from the oven and check the baked cake by inserting a knife or tooth pick into it. If it comes clean than the cake is baked.

Keep the cake out for 10-15 minutes to cool down before slicing it.

It might be a good idea to add these healthy ingredients now and then to increase the nutritive value of the goodies we make. The Ragi cake was moist and delicious.

    It always amazes me how sometimes we try so hard to get a dessert done with such attention…and at times a big flop is the result!
    Then, pleasant surprises like your cake come out of nowhere…and voila…joy in our kitchen has been restored ;o)

    Flavourful wishes,
