An attempt to make an egg less cake. I was making solkadhi again, and had left over coconut after extracting the milk. I wanted to make cake, but was out of eggs. This recipe came out,I don’t know how, just like that. And it came out good.
I did read somewhere that chia seeds are a good substitute to eggs. And here is how I used it.
- Chia Seeds, ground, 1 Table Spoon
- All purpose flour – 1 cup
- Sugar – 1/4 cup
- White butter – 1/4 cup
- Coconut shavings – 1/4 cup
- Baking powder – 1/2 tablespoon
- Salt – a pinch
- 1 cup milk, the whole the better 🙂
- A pinch of cardamom powder
- A pinch of nutmeg powder
- Vanilla Essence, few drops.
Step 1 Get all the dry ingredients together
Take a big bowl and add the flour[ or better sift it in]. Now add sugar, ground chia seeds, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix everything well.
Step 2 Add rest of the ingredients
But before that, preheat your oven to 220 C. OK, now add in the butter, coconut and milk. Keep mixing with a spatula or whisker, until you attain a good creamy mixture. Sprinkle gently a pinch of cardamom powder, nutmeg and a few drops of French vanilla essence. Mix well again.
Step 3 The baking
Now grease a baking utensil of your choice with olive oil or butter and pour in the mixture. Bake it for 20 – 25 minutes.
Step 4 EAT!!
Al right, nothing much more to do. Take it out of the oven, and let it cool for 15 minutes. Invert the utensil onto a serving dish and well, you know, SERVE!!!
