Jam Cake / Whole Wheat Flour Cake

Egg less whole wheat flour jam cake. Soft, delicious and easy to make cake.
No need to add sugar. Mixed fruit jam gives a lovely colour and perfectly sweet taste. I didn’t used refined flour or maida. Cake is made of only whole wheat flour or atta. But you can use any flour of your choice. Even you can use any flavoured jam instead of mixed fruit jam.

Sharing this recipe from my archive. Made this cake first time 4 years ago. Got the recipe in food group Chef At Large from Nisha Ambar. Nisha is an excellent baker. Loved her all the bakes but this cake attract me a lot. Tried and loved the taste. Now sharing this simple yet delicious recipe here. Thanks Nisha for this wonderful recipe.

This week our 195 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is Third Letter Magic suggested by Amrita Iyer who blog at The Food Samaritan. Do visit her space for mouthwatering recipes.

In this theme we have to share a recipe with the third letter of our name. I was thinking about the letter J and remember this delicious jam cake. Earlier I have made it with choco chips but this time used walnuts. You can use tutti fruity, choco chips or any dry fruits of your choice. This time I didn’t use any other flour for this cake like my other cakes, followed exact Nisha’s recipe. If you want you can also make it with any gluten free flour or refined flour or maida or mixed flour.

Whole wheat flour and oats makes it healthy. I didn’t used all purpose flour or maida.

You can make it without oats too. In that case take 1 cup whole wheat flour or 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup all purpose flour.

I used rice bran oil you can use olive oil or any vegetable oil.
