Hi Friends, Hope all of you are in good health.
Here I am again with a recipe this Covid 19 Easter Cake 2020. As I write this recipe pray that this difficult time may pass very soon and all of us return to normal life again.
Since it is lock out period, we didn’t go out to buy anything for Easter. Just adjusted with whatever we had at home. So this cake has no egg or milk or nuts except coconut milk.
1. Roasted rice flour for Appam and Idiyappam – 2 Tablespoons
2. Rava – 1 Tablespoon
3. Wheat flour (Atta) – 3 Tablespoons
4. Corn flour – 1 Tablespoon
5. Cocoa Powder – 1 Tablespoon
6. Coconut Oil – 1 Tablespoon
7. Ghee – 1 Tablespoon
8. Coconut milk – ½ cup
9. Dry East – 1 small teaspoon
10. Melted Jaggery – 2 Tablespoons or according to your taste
11. Salt – ½ Teaspoon
12. Cardamom Powder – ¼ Teaspoon
13. Cinnamon Powder – ¼ Teaspoon
14. Cloves Powder – ¼ Teaspoon
15. Vanilla Essence – 3 Drops (optional)
Mix all the ingredients (if water is not sufficient can add little water) except Ghee, oil and cocoa powder, make a thick paste and keep overnight for fermenting.
Very sorry for not uploading step by step photos. Didn’t know that this experiment of mine would turn out so good.
The next day morning grease a baking dish or a steel vessel and pour the batter after mixing well with ghee and oil. I used coconut milk powder, instead of coconut milk. In a little water mix the cocoa powder and make a paste then pour into the batter in any shape, This will give your cake a good look.
Preheat the oven/cooker/idli maker and cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Poke a toothpick or knife and see if it’s sticking. Keep on low flame and be careful of burning. Cooking time may differ according to the utensils and stove or oven.
This is a lovely soft and delicious cake which all can enjoy. Try it out especially now in this lock out period and enjoy only with your family while keeping distance from everyone.
In the picture are some ripe Mangoes fresh from the tree, Gift of God during this locked out Easter day. Happy Easter to all. Bye Bye till we meet again….Stay safe…stay blessed, this hard times too will pass. Nothing is permanent on this earth.
