Gluten Free Apple Jaggery cake / Vegan Cake

Apple jaggery cake with gluten free flour. An easy to make, healthy, delicious, gluten free and vegan cake. A cake with all the nutritious ingredients. Delicious dairy free, sugar free and butter free cake.

Cake is super soft and moist. Mixed taste of apple and jaggery made the cake divine.

I have used rice flour, soyabean flour and oats powder in the cake. You can use any flour of your choice like whole wheat flour or atta, refined flour or maida, cornmeal, buckwheat flour etc. You can also use brown sugar or normal white sugar instead of jaggery. Any fruit can be used instead of apple.

Sending this post to Facebook group Recipe swap challenge initiated by Jolly and Vidya.
We have to recreate a recipe from a fellow blogger’s blog. This month my partner is Jolly who blog at Jolly homemade recipes.
Do visit her space for many delicious recipes she shared We know each other since I started my blogging journey. Jolly is not only a talented blogger, she is a very good person and friend, always ready to help others. I have bookmarked this jaggery cake recipe just after posted. Never used vanilla essence with jaggery, sounds interesting. And really loved the mixed flavour.
If you want to make it with whole wheat flour then follow this recipe.

Apple is absolutely optional. You can use any fruit instead of apple or simply skip it. But I recommend to add one apple to enhance the taste and flavour. You can use any dry fruits instead of tutti fruity. I have used bundt pan, you can use square or round any cake pan. Even you can make loaf cake with this batter. Choice is yours. Vegan people can use almond milk, soy milk or any other vegan milk. But coconut milk taste better. You can also use dairy milk.

Recipe

Rice flour – 1/2 cup

Soyabean flour – 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon

Oats – 1/2 cup

Baking powder – 1 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

Jaggery – 3/4 cup tightly packed, grated or powder

Coconut milk – 1/2 cup, slightly warm

Olive oil or any vegetable oil – 1/2 cup

Vinegar or lemon juice – 1 tablespoon

Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Tutti fruity – 1/2 cup

Apple – 1

Cashew nuts – few, optional

Method

1. Grease a cake pan and dust with little soyabean flour or any flour you are using.

2. Preheat the oven at 180°.

3. Grind the oats into fine powder.

4. Peel and grate the apple.

5. Mix 1 tablespoon soyabean flour with tutti fruity and keep aside.

6. In a bowl mix rice flour, soyabean flour, oats powder, baking powder and soda. Mix well with a whisk. You can sieve the dry ingredients but I don’t like to discard the fibres of the flours. So I have just mixed well with a whisk, you can use your food processor.

7. In a large bowl whisk grated or powdered jaggery, slightly warm milk and vinegar. Whisk well till jaggery completely melted. See notes for more options for milk.

8. Add vanilla essence and grated apple. Mix well.

9. Now add the dry ingredients gradually.

10. Mix till everything blend well. Make a lump free smooth batter.

11. Fold in flour mixed tutti fruity.
Pour the batter into greased or lined and flour dusted cake pan.

12. Tap the pan gently on your kitchen counter to remove the air bubbles.

13. Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 30 – 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
Every oven takes different time so insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake to check.

14. Let the cake cool down before slicing. Enjoy slightly warm or cool cake, taste yummy in both ways.
Happy baking 😊

Notes
1. Whole wheat flour, refined flour or any flour can be used instead of these gluten free flour.
2. You can use cinnamon powder, cardamom powder or any other flavour instead of vanilla.
3. If you don’t have Bundt pan then you can use square, round, loaf or any cake pan. Even you can make cup cakes with this batter.

4. Dairy milk, almond milk, soy milk or any other dairy free milk can be used instead of coconut milk.

Soft, moist and delicious cupcakes made with coconut.

Adopted the recipe from Mayuri’s blog. Always love her delicious bakes. Now happy to share her recipe for my readers.

Made this cupcakes today for Recipe swap challenge initiated by Jolly
And Vidya.

In this group members are paired up every alternate month. And we have to choose a recipe from partner’s blog to cook and share. This month my partner is talented blogger Mayuri Patel who blog at Mayuris Jikoni.
I have bookmarked many of her recipes. I always love her baked recipes. This time decided to make focaccia bread and bookmarked it. But recently bought a small and beautiful silicone cupcake mould and wanted to use it. So I picked up her Coconut cupcakes.

I will make other bookmarked recipes from her blog later or maybe when we paired again. Do visit her space for some awesome recipes specially different types of bread and cakes.

I have reduced the amount of batter. Used oil instead of butter. And added little Soyabean flour because soya flour makes the cake super soft. My earlier bakes with this flour was always a hit among my family and friends. You can use any flour of your choice. But adding Soyabean flour will make your cake soft and protein rich. But if you don’t have Soyabean flour then you can use only refined flour or whole wheat flour.

Baking powder – 1 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

Oil – 1/2 cup

Thick yogurt – 1/4 cup

Milk powder – 1/4 cup

Powdered sugar – 1 cup

Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Caramel essence – 1 teaspoon, optional

Yellow food colour – 1/4 teaspoon, optional

Tutti fruity to sprinkle

Method

1. Preheat the oven at 170°.

2. Grease the cupcakes or muffins moulds with oil or butter or use cupcake liner.

4. In a large bowl whisk milk, yogurt and powdered sugar. Add milk powder and whisk again.

5. Add oil, vanilla essence, yellow food colour and caramel essence. Whisk well.

6. Now add the dry ingredients gradually and mix well. Make a lump free batter. You can add tutti fruity, dry fruits, glazed cherry or choco chips in the batter.

7. Pour the batter into the cupcake moulds. Fill 3/4 of the moulds.
Sprinkle some tutti fruity over the cupcakes.

8. Bake in preheated over for 20 – 25 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

Every oven takes different time so keep an eye after 15 minutes.

9. Let the cupcakes cool down before serving.

10. Serve with milk tea coffee or enjoy on your munching time.
Happy baking.

Notes
1 . Instead of refined flour or maida you can use whole wheat flour or atta in the cake batter. Or use any gluten free flour.

Pineapple Cupcake / Gluten Free Cake / Protein Rich Cake / Soyabean Flour Cake

Eggless gluten free pineapple cupcake with soyabean flour.
You can call it a protein rich or high protein cake. A perfect protein diet for your kids and you both. Soyabean flour made the cake super soft.

Soyabean flour is a rich source of proteins, iron, B vitamins and calcium.
It is said that consuming soybean helps to reduce the risk of many health related problems. And it gives the cake a lovely texture, colour, taste and flavour. Taste is better than wheat flour. So not only yummy its also a healthy treat.

Consumption of Soy products every few days, like soy beans, tofu and soya milk among others, will ensure an adequate intake of protein.

Soyabean flour tends to brown quickly so you have to make it at low heat. I have used vanilla essence in it but you can use pineapple essence. If you don’t have soyabean flour you can use any flour of your choice. I have used canned pineapple. If you have fresh pineapple you can use it.
