Banana Apple Whole Wheat Flour Cake with Coconut Sugar

Holiday is at times exhausting but well kids are kids, they tend to feel bored often unless they are engaged in some summer camp or so. I did want to spend some quality time with my kid this summer, so took a few days off just to be with her chattering around. But then I never knew that it turns out hard, as at times we run out of the different types games we could play together, I kept planning one after other and finally yesterday it was cake baking, our agenda for the day, and we baked a delicious moist bundt cake and that too egg less 😊!


Now when it comes to cooking or baking, off late I try out something that is healthy. The coconut sugar that I
had got was to be used and that was the my intention(shhh...) behind this bake 😉. Coconut sugar is considered to be healthier when compared to the usual refined table sugar for its glycemic index and the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients they hold. Without taking much time with my story here, let's move to the recipe.

Ingredients:(Makes 15 normal pieces)

Whole wheat flour - 1.5 cups +1 tsp. to coat the bundt pan
Peeled medium sized apples - 1 ½
Medium sized bananas - 2
Dried figs - 5
Baking soda - 1 tsp.
Coconut sugar - 125gms
Salt a pinch
Butter - 100gms
Milk-1 cup or 1 ¼ cup depending on the consistency of cake batter
Vinegar-1 tsp.
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp.
Powdered sugar or powdered stevia to decorate

Recipe:

  1. Using a sieve, sieve the wheat flour and baking soda together.
  2. Grate the apples. To the sieved flour mixture add salt, grated apples.
  3. Chop the figs.Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  4. Pop into a blender the bananas, coconut sugar and butter.
  5. Blend them together.
  6. Add it to the sieved flour with salt and grated apples.
  7. Grease the bundt cake pan with butter. Coat the greased pan with a tsp. of whole wheat flour thoroughly.
  8. Place few chopped figs into the pan.
  9. Add around ½ cup of milk and using a spatula just fold the mixture together. Keep adding more milk till you get the right semi flowing consistency of the cake batter.
  10. To the cake batter add vanilla essence. Now add vinegar, few chopped figs and give a final folding.
  11. Transfer the cake batter into the bundt pan and pop it into the preheated oven.Bake for 35-40 mins at around 180 degree Celsius.
  12. Once out wait for a while to cool down a bit, then run knife through the edges and turn the cake pan upside down on to a flat surface.
  13. Decorate by sprinkling powdered sugar or stevia (I used stevia 😉) or you can decorate the way you like or just leave this step out.
