Ragi Chocolate Cake

Ragi Chocolate Cake is a wonderful dense cake made using millet flour and devoid of any gluten. This eggless cake, gluten free cake is a perfect snack when craving something chocolaty. It’s quick to prepare and uses easily available ingredients.

In complicated or a fancy way you may call it Gluten Free, Eggless, Super dense Cocoa & Finger Millet Cake 🙃
Whatever you may refer to it but finally I have found a #ragicake recipe that’s for keeps.

Simply decadent, rich in cocoa is a must make and try for chocolate lovers. If you haven’t eaten a pure ragi cake before then it might take a bite or two to get accustomed to the flavor and feel but later there’s no stopping.

I am also thrilled to have tried my hands on an eggless cake that uses flaxseeds as the egg substitute, something I was wanting to try for long. Flaxseed powder forms gel when mixed with water and the flaxseed gel works wonderful as a raising agent in cake batters.
The batter texture is smooth and results in a cake which is soft. So if you are looking for an eggless cake recipe that uses a healthy egg substitute then let your search end here.

Overall am very happy with the way this millet cake turned out that too without using egg or any cake flour.

You definitely must give this recipe a try!
