Sorghum or Jowar cake / Vegan Cake / Jowar Jaggery Cake

Jowar or Sorghum Cake is vegan and can also be made Gluten free by just excluding the baking Powder. It is one of the healthiest and deliciously guilt-free cakes you can find.



I know I have been away from this blog for a long time now. As much as I love cooking, I haven't been able to be very active because of some personal reasons. I am hoping to be as regular as I can from now on...


Here's a recipe of a Cake that has no maida, no sugar, no eggs or butter and in case you are wondering how on earth a cake can taste good without all the ingredients that make it tasty, I assure you that it is not only healthy but very tasty too!

** You can use any millet flour and make this cake.
** If you are not a vegan, do use eggs in place of flax gel.
** Be careful while handling the cake. Since this is almost Gluten-free, it tends to break if you tried to move it around too much.
