Millet Groundnut Cake

Happy NEW YEAR Folks :)

Let's start the new year with a healthy note. For this new year I have made a millet groundnut sponge cake. The healthier part of it is that I have substituted half of the amount of maida with healthier millet flour. I have also added groundnut for extra nutrition and flavour. Hope you will try this cake and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed baking and eating it :)

Millet Groundnut Cake


Maida / All purpose flour  - 1 cup

Millet flour - 1 cup

Sugar - 1 cup

Eggs - 4

Baking Powder - 1 tsp

Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

Groundnut toffee - 100 gms

Preparation Method

1. Break the groundnut toffee and grind it into a fine powder, keep aside

2. Sieve maida / all purpose flour, millet flour and baking powder and keep aside.

3. Preheat the oven in mode 'toast' at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.

4. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, vanilla essence and eggs and whip it using an electric mixer with low speed. When the eggs are mixed well, after 2 to 3 minutes, whip again for 10 minutes in medium speed.

5. Into the above mixture, add 1 tbsp. of the maida, millet flour mix and fold into the egg mixture with a wooden spoon. Mix gently. When the flour is mixed well, add 1/2 of the flour and mix again gently. Then finally add the remaining flour and mix well, but gently. This way, the flour mixes into the egg mixture evenly without forming lumps.

6. Mix in the powdered groundnut toffee and mix well.

7. Grease a cake mould with ghee or butter.

8. Pour into it the cake batter.

9. Bake it for 30 minutes at 180 degrees in 'bake' mode.

10. It’s better to check the cake after 25 minutes, if it’s done. Time taken to bake depends on oven you are using. Take a skewer and insert into the center of the cake all the way down till the bottom. If the skewer comes clean then the cake is cooked.
