grated and coarsely powdered
To grease the pan
Sift together the dry ingredients, excluding jaggery, into a mixing bowl.
Add the jaggery powder to the mixing bowl.
I used a jaggery block, scrapped it with a knife, and coarsely ground to powder in a blender.
Now add the wet ingredients.
Combine just enough for all the ingredients to be evenly distributed.
Do not over-mix.
Line the bottom of the baking pan with a parchment paper.
Grease and flour the sides.
I used a 7-inch round cake pan.
Spread the cake batter evenly into the baking pan.
Preheat the oven.
Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 35-40 minutes.
You can take the cake out when a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Allow cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
Extract onto a wire rack to cool completely.
You can use any cooking oil. But nothing that has a strong aroma. That'll overpower the cake ingredients
Use a knife to level out the cup while measuring the flour. This will help you measure the correct amount of ingredients
If you prefer weighing your ingredients, use 171 grams of wheat flour, and 150 grams of jaggery (grated)
