Thanks a ton to Madhuram’s eggless cooking

Wonderful cake ideas.. we have started devouirng vegan cake now 🙂

I have tried many recipes of her with a twist though. Having all the required ingredients at a time has always been a problem for me. I dont cook preplanned, it has always been on the fly. So I do mix and match of her recipes.

Oat bran cake one of my favorites,  its healthy and I dont feel guilty eating cakes anymore 🙂


All Purpose Flour –  1 cup

Oat Bran – 1 cup

Baking Soda – 2 teaspoons

Baking Powder – 1 and 1/4 teaspoon

Cardamom powder –  1 teaspoon

Brown Sugar(light brown) – 1 cup

Carrot   – 1 medium size grated

Apple  – 2 medium size grated

Raisins – 1/2 cup

Coco powder –  3 tsp

Oil –  1/2 cup

Milk  – 1/2 cup

Yoghurt  – 1/4 cup

Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon

– sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda.

– mix oat bran, sugar and cocoa powder with it. (I use wooden spatula for mixing purpose)

– add milk, oil, yogurt and vanilla extract and fold in.

– make sure all the ingredients have mixed well.

– then add grated carrots, apples and raisins and fold in.

– now grease a microwave dish, use butter or oil

– pour the mixtureto 1/4 level of  the dish height

– I sprinkled sliced almonds on top for garnish

– bake in microwave

– my dish was small, so I had to bake this in 2 parts. It took me 8-10 minutes on medium high for one batch.

– keep a watch on ur cake. Let it rise and then test it with toothpick. toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the centre

Notes :

  • I have noticed in Madurams recipes she replaces flour/maida with whole wheat flour/aata, wheat germ etc . I have tried all in this ratio :-

– whole wheat flour -3/4 cup and all purpose flour – 1/4 cup

– wheat germ – 1/3 cup and all purpose flour – 2/3 cup

  • I used sunflower cooking oil.
  • Fold in  means,  make a complete circle with the wooden spatula and then draw a line from 12’0′ clk to 6’0’clk. Dont have to mix too much as airpockets keep coming and ur cake may have lot of pores.
  • The cake tends to be like biscuit if kept for long in microwave. so make sure u stay put near ur microwave till its done.
