Eggless Ragi Choco Chip Cake |Eggless Finger Millet Cake

Here comes one more random attempt with millet flour in baking without raising agents. I wanted to check the result of not using baking powder/soda in baking.My cookies were 100% successful.This cake got slightly dunked in.And I believe it is because of not using raising agents or curd. I am looking for experts to share their opinion on this.Here is the story of this bake 🙂 I ended up burning the top of my cup cakes but successfully made this cake with my little one’s help. My boy is so keen about what mommy cooks for him for every meal.He urges me to plan my every meal,every snack of the week well ahead.He has his own choices and he would love to assist me in cooking especially baking. This was planned to be eggless choco chip cup cakes with ragi and flax seeds without raising agents. I accidentally altered the mode and extended the timing with no proper knowledge and burnt the top of cup cakes. So I poured the second part of the batter to a cake pan,LO did the mixing ,garnishing and converted it to tutti fruity cake 🙂 He removed the burnt top of the cup cakes and stored them for this snack box for the coming week. How much should we learn from these kiddos? ! I even forgot the exact measurements as this was made long back. I have given the procedure and other details for both cake and cup cake here.

KADALAI MITTAI/PEANUT CHIKKI/GROUNDNUT CANDY FOR KIDS

Hello Friends!I hope all of you all keeping good .People in North India please take extra care of yourself because of the smoggy winter prevalent.There were no posts from me for the past two days because of the horrible pollution which has bombarded us. It was a real shock to a first timer like us and we are slowly finding ways and means to tackle it.I had severe eye irritation because of it irrespective of staying indoors.It is definitely not so simple as most people think.This is an alarming situation.I shall write a separate post on this because I would write several pages if I commence.Coming to today’s recipe,it is our own traditional and the most healthy snack “Kadalai Mittai/Peanut Bar/Groundnut Chikki/Groundnut Candy”.This is one of the recipes which I had been miserably failing several times and this time hubby made it perfectly.Yeah!You can call this a guest post from Kitchen King(H/O Kitchen Kathukutty).We have so keenly trying on this because we had a tough time to pick up a pure groundnut candy for our kid.By pure what do I mean?I mean the ingredients should be only “Jaggery+Water+Cardamom+Groundnut” and no glucose syrup or other artificial/refined sweeteners. You may ask me why so much of stress on this .It is because it is our regular snack.We don’t send packed snack/ready made food as our son’s snack. Peanuts/Groundnuts are so rich in protein and combining it with jaggery makes it a super food. To know more about benefits of groundnut refer here Continue reading “KADALAI MITTAI/PEANUT CHIKKI/GROUNDNUT CANDY FOR KIDS”
