Whole Wheat Jaggery Cake

I have been trying to add jaggery in our diet often especially the palm jaggery. Recently i got a packet of organic jaggery from my nearby organic store and it tempted me to give a try to a cake. Hence i baked this easy breezy wholewheat jaggery cake. If you are a reader of my space, you might know very well that i wont forget to add chocolate chips if am trying something new in baking. Obviously i couldnt resist to add some chocolate chips in this simple cake. An excellent cake to give a try if you want to keep yourself away from sugar. However, this cake will come out bit dark in colour apart from it, you wont miss anything. I loved the flavor of this cake and none noticed that i prepared the cake batter with the humble ingredient 'Jaggery'.

Jaggery Wholewheat Cake
This cake is not eggless but its butterless, i used vegetable oil and yogurt in this cake. If you want to skip the two eggs i have added in this cake, please just go on by replacing the eggs with applesauce. A prefect snack cake to enjoy with your cup of coffee or tea. Since this cake have chocolate chips, kids will just love this cake. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Easy sweet treats as theme. Since this cake takes hardly less than half an hour to get ready, i couldnt resist to post under this theme.
