A healthy variation of the regular ‘sponge cake’

Standard

Since we have become kind of fitness freaks (!), and the paradox is our extreme love and fondness for the regular sponge cakes, we decided to try something healthier!

 

First we identify the health-culprits in a cake…

 

Butter

Sugar

Maida

 

And we replaced them with

Dry fruits

Honey

Wheat

And the result was not so bad!!

 

Ok, so here is the quick recipe for an evening tea party of four!

 

Eggs- 2

Wheat – around 80gms

Honey – as per taste

Rose essence – 1tsp

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Dry fruits – 1/2 a cup

 

Whisk them all together (except dry fruits – which are chopped in small and coarse pieces. Fold them into the mixture at the end.

Pour the mixture in a lined container (preferably ring shaped)

Bake them at 150 C (preheated) oven for around 40 minutes.

Take the ‘cake’ out and cut it in small pieces.

You can store it for 4-5 days in an air tight container.

Before you serve it, microwave it for 30sec for a warm and soft experience 🙂
