Eggless Litchi Loaf Cake With Whole Wheat Flour And Oats

Litchi loaf cake with whole wheat flour and oats.
A very easy to make, soft and delicious litchi flavoured cake. Perfect to serve with tea or coffee or enjoy with ice cream.

I have wanted to make a cake for this week’s bloghop. But this whole week I was at Kanpur. Returned home at Saturday night. I had no idea what to make. My husband bought some juicy litchis today. Litchi is easily available in this season. And its one of my favourite fruit. So I used these sweet juicy litchis in my cake.

I born and raised in Bihar. And I remember the best litchi I have tasted there from Muzaffarpur.
Muzaffarpur in Bihar is famous for it’s litchi production. Muzaffarpur is known as litchi kingdom because of it’s shahi litchis.

Lychee is a wonderful fruit with plenty of health benefits, including its ability to aid in weight loss, protect the skin, boost the immune system, prevent cancer, improve digestion, build strong bones, lower blood pressure, defend the body against viruses, improve circulation, and optimize metabolic activities.

The recipe of this cake is similar to pineapple cupcake that I shared earlier. But no its not gluten free. I have changed the flour. Made the cake with oats and whole wheat flour. You can use all purpose flour if you want. Or if you don’t like oats omit it and use 1 & 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or all purpose flour. Or mix of both flour. Choice is yours. Cake will be delicious with any flour. Or you can use any gluten free flour.

I have used fresh litchis in this cake. You can use canned litchi if you don’t have fresh litchi.
Pistachio is optional. You can frost your cake or sprinkle powdered sugar over the cake with a sieve.

4. In a bowl sieve whole wheat flour, oats powder, corn flour, baking powder and soda.

5. In a large bowl mix condensed milk, oil, vinegar mixed milk and litchi juice. If you are using canned litchi use the juice. I have used fresh litchi. Peel, chop and blend the litchis to get juice.
Whisk everything well.

6. Add vanilla essence and whisk again.

7. Now mix all the dry ingredients gradually. Mix well to make a lump free batter.
Don’t over beat.

8. Fold in chopped litchis in the batter. Add 1 – 2 tablespoon litchi juice more if require. Batter should be thick but pourable.

11. Bake in the preheated oven at 180° for 30 – 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

Eggless Gluten Free Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Eggless gluten free chocolate chiffon cake.
A cake made with sorghum flour or jowar atta. Soft, moist, light, airy and chocolaty cake. You don’t need to separate egg yolks and whisk. Its very easy to make.

I have used sorghum or jowar flour in it. And very happy with the taste.
Sorghum, an ancient cereal grain that’s a staple crop in India and throughout Africa, has long been considered a safe grain alternative for people with celiac disease and gluten insensitivity. New molecular evidence confirms that sorghum is completely gluten-free, and reports that the grain provides health benefits that make it a worthy addition to any diet.
Sorghum has high nutritional value, with high levels of unsaturated fats, protein, fiber, and minerals like phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and iron. It also has more antioxidants than blueberries and pomegranates.
