Millet has entered my kitchen forever now. Whites (All purpose Flour, White Rice, and Dairy) is slowly getting replaced by plant based food. Millets are gluten-free and vegan too. I have tried eggless banana cake previously so this time I tried to introduce millets in my cake. This cake is delicious, healthy and would be spongy because of Bananas. Use of organic jaggery gives it a dark color without even using cocoa powder. I used chocolate chunks this time to get that gooey taste in every bit. Add walnut and chocolate chips to attract kids. Try this recipe, you feel like a big time cheat mommy because you are feeding millets to your kid !!!! Let's jump to the recipe.
