Notes for making whole wheat flour cake 

  1. Take the whole wheat flour fill lightly in the bowl . don’t press it or tap it to make 1 bowl measure.
  2. Don’t use any oil which has strong flavor for eg soya bean oil , groundnut oil etc.
  3. If you want you can add 1- 2 eggs in this cake after beating them nicely it will make the cake little fluffy. I prefer it without egg!
  4. If you don’t like chocolate cake you can avoid adding cocoa powder to it .
  5. You can serve this cake with chocolate sauce or butter icing .
  6. In place of sugar you can add honey, demera sugar  or sugar free natura( if you are diet conscious or diabetic).

You can use this cake in any chocolate pudding recipe….

  1. i have tried this whole wheat flour cake and t turned out really well.i don’t think i will use maida in my cake now. thanks of the recipe

  2. I had made this cake and it becomes very good. My family members also love it because they don’t believe that it is made up of wheat flour only.
    Thank you for sharing such a lovely & healthy recipe for us.

    • Hi Sumeet
      I never tried this cake in microwave . Once I have tried plain cake in microwave and it didn’t turn out well the way it gets baked in OTG or oven. if u have microwave oven with convection or have oven function then u can make this cake . it will take more time as compare to oven or otg. my friend makes this cake on convection mode but it takes around 50-55 minutes . she told me that once the cake gets bake she keep it for grilling function for 10 minutes to make crust ..well i had that cake it was ok ,but the taste u get from baked cake from oven or otg is not possible from microwave oven .

      • Today I tried in microwave in convection mode at 200c for 30min preheated for 10 before….
        It came out awesome….
        This is my first cake in microwave….. I had tried before so many times but never came out well this is awesome receip …thanku so much

  3. Can I replace sugar with jagger? If yes then how much? And also if I use 2 eggs then other ingredients remain same or not?

    • I never tried jaggery in this cake…but if u want to ; Jaggery is not as sweet as white sugar, so when substituting jaggery for white sugar use about 1/4 to 1/2 more.u can also use demerara sugar in place of white sugar its a good substitute of jaggery and add it the same as white sugar .
      if u want to add eggs reduce the quantity of milk while making cake batter.

  4. Hi,

    I tried this cake, and it worked wonders even in microwave. Most appreciated thing about this cake is home-made from gehu atta so I know what I am feeding my daughters with and that too eggless is most like-liked thing about this recipe.
    I did give it a try with microwave simple convection for 5 mins, then let it settle in mcrowave with microwave off for a minute and then took out and allowed it to settle for a minute and then I couldnot find the cake because everybody just finished it like never before 😉

    thanks, looking forward to may be cookies or pastries now….

    Best Regards,

  5. I am trying this recipe in my Otg.Lets c …..But one thing is after mixi ng all the ingredients I licked the left over batter from the mixing bowl and it was so tasty …couldnt stop licking the whole bowl.

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful recipe…

    • Hi Rachana
      You can use Home grind Whole wheat atta to make this cake. I have also used the home grind atta in fact sometimes i add soyabean in my wheat flour still there is no difference in taste of this cake.

    • You can use hand mixer, but make sure that dates are soaked nicely or have been softened so it can be easily process to smooth and creamy paste.

  6. Ok.. Thanks.. I also realized that mixer vil b better option coz vth a hand mixer, may b, chances of spillage vil b high .. Looking forward to try out this recipe! Thanks again..

I have tried it many times but always without dates(I couldnt get dates handy whenever I tried the cake). I cant tell you the happiness with which my family has been enjoying this.

In turn I have shared it with my friends and am waiting for their response.

As I mentioned in my earlier comments, I cant tell you how much your recipe has been a success. Of my own I tried a few variations which were also successful. I was looking for recipes of ragi cookies without using wheat flour or sugar or eggs. Can you please advise?

Your eggless maidaless chocolate cake is a superhit in my family and I bake it as often as I can. I have tried a few variations, all of which have been a great success. I was just hoping you could advise on making ragi biscuits without eggs or wheatflour.
