Ragi, Wholewheat Chocolate Cake

Ragi, Wholewheat Chocolate Cake - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
As Ragi is very good for health I so wanted to incorporate it in baking too apart from making ladoos & making chapatis from it. This wonderful cake when served with chocolate sauce and topped with chocolate curls, I bet no one would suspect that it's made of ragi and wholewheat flour. Other healthy ingredient which I have used in place of white sugar is organic jaggery from GUJARAT, which I got as a gift from my dear friend. You can serve this to your children as after school snack as this does not contain any maida. So enjoy this guilt free yummy cake.
