recipe adapted from wholegrain baking
Hi, i made this cake and it turned out prefect.truly delicious..Used almonds instead of walnuts.also added few raisins..
I made this cake today but its taste was salty, I belive it was due to the salt i added as per the ingredients you have mentioned. It was not at all tasty.
I need your suggestions.
What is the purpose to add salt & cinnamon in the cake ? I never added salt in other cakes i make like Chocolate/vanilla.
What if I should not consider to add salt & cinnamon? Will that works to make a good sweet cake?
I want to make sweet & healthy whole grain banana cake.
I will be highly thankful if you could send your suggestions asap.
Cinnamon and Salt is for flavor. The salt is usually added in many sweet/chocolate based desserts to bring out more flavor. They don't taste salty but still sweet. I am surprised to hear that yours tasted salty when it shouldnt. Did you remember to use unsalted butter?--DK
I am surprised about the "saltiness". Another person also said the same thing although I did not even get the taste. Did you use unsalted butter?--DK
I use it only to thicken up the balls if necc. So you can use any flour you have on hand - maida/chickpea flour/rice flour - or even bread crumbs. No hard or fast rules --DK
Thank u so much Aarthi :) Do you get Oats? Cos if you do then you can make your own oats flour. Just take oats and grind them to fine powder in your blender --DK
I am so glad to hear that Vidhya :) --DK
Yes you can. try Whole wheat pastry flour (or Indian chapathi atta) as a replacement cos it might make a lighter result than all wheat which is still OK but might be little more dense than with pastry flour but I dont think it will affect the taste as such. You can also use all purpose flour but then it would not be called wholegrain for sure ;). I wud prefer liners always...better than without :)
It probably is, if u are planning to eat the whole cake by yourself :)
