Cakes are everyone's favourite. No occasion is complete without this delicious dish. It is a mode to celebrate every occasion. So it will be an added bonus if it is healthy too. I thought why not bake it with whole wheat flour and share the recipe with you. Usually healthy cakes are dry but this one is moist and soft. It is a simple, delicious and easy to prepare recipe. It takes ten minutes to prepare the batter and 30 to 35 min to bake in the oven. I always love food which can be cooked easily. Food in a jiffy is my mantra.

It will encourage me to do better.
Oven should be medium hot at time of keeping the cake. If the oven is too hot your cake will become hard & dry from outside.
Folding of flour in the batter should be done gently otherwise the air incorporated in the batter will escape. And cake will turn hard.
Hope you liked the recipe. Happy Cooking folks !!!.
