Oats Wholewheat Chocolate Cake


Oats whole wheat chocolate cake. A very soft moist and delicious eggless cake with chocolaty flavour. Updating a very old post with a video recipe and some new pictures.

Tried a cake with oats and very happy with the result. Its super soft and moist. Taste is awesome. Believe me texture is much better than all purpose flour or maida cake.

As I mentioned above Its an old post. Made a video recipe so updating the post with some new pictures and text. Earlier I had used cashew nuts and this time used walnut. You can use whatever you like. And also used 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup to make the cake mildly sweet.

So its eggless butter less refined flour less yet absolutely delicious cake. A perfect tea time cake and perfect for kiddos too.


I will try to share same cake without refined sugar to make it completely guilt free. So stay tuned.

Ingredients used to make this delicious cake

Whole wheat flour or atta – Used whole wheat flour or atta which we normally use to make roti or chapati.

Oats – Used rolled oats and grind to make fine powder. If you have oatmeal then you can use it. No need to grind.

Powdered sugar – Confectionery sugar or powdered sugar used to sweetened the cake. If you like your cake mildly sweet use 3/4 cup and if you want your cake more sweet use 1 cup.

Oil – Used peanut oil instead of butter. You can use olive oil or any flavorless vegetable oil to make this cake.

Milk and vinegar – This cake is eggless so vinegar mixed milk used as buttermilk to make the cake soft.

Cocoa powder – Cocoa powder used for chocolate flavour.

Baking powder and soda – Baking powder and soda used as leavening agent. Baking powder and soda will help the cake to rise and make the cake fluffy and light.

Vanilla essence – Vanilla essence will give a lovely aroma with chocolate.

Walnut – Earlier I had sprinkle cashew nuts in the greased baking pan to make upside down cake. This time used chopped walnut in the batter. You can use any nuts according to your choice.

To make oats powder simply grind the oats in your mixer grinder. You can use olive oil or any flavorless oil to make this cake. If you like your cake mildly sweet like me use 3/4 cup powdered sugar

And if want your cake more sweet use 1 cup sugar. Use sugar according to your taste

Use cashew nuts or walnut whatever you like. Or you can use both if you want.

1. Preheat the microwave convection or hot blast mode at 160°. For OTG preheat at 180° for 10 minutes.

3. Grease a cake pan and dust with flour. You can use loaf pan or any cake pan. If you are using nonstick pan grease lightly with oil only.

5. In a bowl mix whole wheat flour, oats powder, baking powder, soda and cocoa powder. You can sieve these dry ingredients if you want. Add chopped walnut in the dry ingredients and mix.

6. In a large bowl add oil and sugar whisk well. Add vanilla and milk mixed vinegar and whisk again.

7. Add half of the dry ingredients. Mix well. Now add remaining dry ingredients and mix well so that it really blend together. Make a lump free smooth batter.

8. Pour the batter into the baking pan. And tap the pan on your kitchen counter to remove the air bubbles.

9. Place in oven and bake for 28-30 minutes in microwave hot blast or convection mode and 35-40 in OTG. Or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean. Insert a toothpick in the middle to check.
