What Is A Jaggery?

For people who are not aware of Jaggery – Jaggery is unrefined sugar obtained from raw, concentrated sugarcane juice. Its widely popular in India and other Asian countries and used in number of desserts, cakes and sweet dishes. It is also known as “gur” in Hindi.

Ingredients Substitution For Gluten Free Vanilla Cake:

✔ As mentioned above I have tested this recipe using both butter and oil, but I highly recommend following the recipe and using vegetable oil as it ensures this cake is moist and get a lovely texture.
✔ I used white rice flour in this recipe. It works well for me. You can also use brown rice flour, almond flour or 50-50 of rice flour and almond flour. I know that there are many different brands of gluten free flour available in different countries, so try to find one that can be swapped.
✔ I used Jaggery as a sweetner. Substitute for jaggery are you can use refined sugar. This will also give a lighter colour to the cake. If you want a healthier version, you can use brown sugar, cane sugar or even coconut sugar will work. Again these sweeteners will give a darker colour to the cake and at the same time a healthier version of cake.
✔ I have used Curd/Yogurt to make an eggless version. If you want to make wih eggs, you can use two eggs inplace of yogurt and opt out the baking soda.
✔ You can also substitute curd with buttermilk. If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, you can make your own by adding 1 teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to ⅓ cup of whole or full fat milk.

I hope that you’ll love this gluten free vanilla cake as much as I do. If you like this cake then you’ll also love my Kidney Beans Brownies recipe which is gluten-free, I sure you might like to try it.

Step by step pictorial instructions to make eggless gluten-free vanilla cake:

Preheat oven @180°C for 10 minutes. Grease a cake pan with oil and dust it with flour. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl add the curd/yogurt and jaggery powder.

Whisk together into a smooth mixture and until the jaggery dissolves completely.

Add oil, milk and vanilla essence. Mix them well together.

Sieve in the rice flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the wet ingredients.

Gently fold them, mix them nicely and make a smooth batter.

You can also allow the batter to stand for 10-15 minutes to help the gluten-free flour to absorb more moisture from the batter.

Tap the cake pan on the counter for 3-4 times to release any air bubbles inside.

Bake the cake at preheated oven @180°C for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it stand for about 5 minutes.

Demould the cake and let the cake cool down completely. Slice and enjoy!

Place the cooker or kadai in the stove.

Place a ring or a stand over it for the cake pan to stand.

Cover the kadai/pan with lid and preheat for 10 minutes over medium heat. If using pressure cooker remove the whistle and gasket from the cooker lid.

Prepare the cake batter as mentioned above.

Place the cake pan in the preheated kadai/cooker and cover it with the lid.

Bake over low heat but not completely in simmer for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Start checking from 35 minutes onwards.

Tips for Making The Best Gluten Free Vanilla Cake:

✔ All ingredients to be at room temperature, so be sure you set out any cold ingredients ahead of time.
✔ Always sieve the flour atleast once or twice.
✔ Use thick and unsour curd.
✔ Use full fat milk for extra richness, taste and texture.
✔ It is important to mix your batter nicely. Don’t be afraid to overmix your batter! Vigorously whisk your batter for few minutes until it’s well combined.
✔ Let your batter sit for about 10-15 minutes before baking to help the gluten free flour absorb more moisture from the batter.
✔ You can add add-ons of your choice like dry fruits & nuts, candied fruits, cherries, cranberries etc.
✔ Tap your cake pans on the counter before putting it in the oven, to bring any air bubbles that are trapped in the batter to the surface
✔ Try using vanilla extract instead of essence to give your cake an amazing flavor!
✔ Also, it was important to sift the jaggery powder. It made a big difference to the final texture of the cake.
✔ Each oven reacts differently so baking time may differ since the temperature varries from oven to oven. Keep a check few minutes ahead of baking time mentioned.
✔ Do not open the oven frequently to check the cake while baking is in process.
