About Healthy Whole-Wheat-Suji Cake Recipe

Have cake and its healthy too ! We all love cake,young and old alike ! My kids do too and I have experimented with a number of cakes over the years. Starting off from the plain maida cakes, I have tried to make them healthier by incorporating other healthier flours and flavours too. This is one such cake, I have tried out on a whim,turned out soft,fluffy and was appreciated by my family.

  2. Pressure cook the beets with a little water till soft.,4-5 whistles.
  3. Cool, peel and puree them.
  4. Chop, peel (optional) and puree the apple.
  5. Whizz the bread slices in the mixer and keep aside.
  6. Powder the sugar/jaggery and keep aside.
  7. Combine all the dry ingredients together in a large, deep mixing bowl.
  8. Add the beetroot puree, apple puree and oil, little at a time, mix well using an electric beater.
  9. Add in the vanilla essence and dahi and beat well until you get a smooth batter.
  10. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 150 Deg C for 25-30 minutes or till done. Do the knife test before taking the cake out of the oven.

My Tip:

The beetroot and the apple puree not only provides the cake with a warm hue, they also make the cake flavourful and soft and one can get fussy eaters to have the vegetable and the fruit with ease in the cloak of a soft and delicious cake !
