As a registered dietitian, I am excited to share with you a delicious and healthy maida-free cake recipe that is packed with nutrients. This cake uses ragi flour, milk powder, and Amul Pro powder, which are excellent sources of protein and calcium. In addition, it contains eggs, which provide high-quality protein, and oil or ghee, which adds healthy fats to the recipe. This cake is a great option for those looking for a healthier alternative to traditional cakes, without compromising on taste. With a few modifications, such as reducing the sugar content, this cake can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. Try it out and indulge in a delicious and nutritious treat!

Here is the step-by-step recipe for the yummy, maida-free cake: Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup ragi flour

  • 1/2 cup milk powder (dairy whitener)

  • 1 and 1/2 sachets Amul Pro powder (milk protein)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup oil or Amul ghee

  • 2-3 tbsp sugar (reduce for less sweetness)

  • 1/2 sachet Nescafe coffee (optional)

  • 1 tbsp corn flour or custard powder

  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ragi flour, milk powder, Amul Pro powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and coffee (if using).

  2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and oil or ghee until well combined.

  3. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.

  4. In a small bowl, mix the corn flour or custard powder with milk and add it to the cake batter. Mix until smooth.

  5. Grease an 8-inch microwave-safe pan or bowl with oil and pour the cake batter into it.

  6. Place the pan in the microwave and cook on high power for 6-7 minutes.

  7. Check the cake by inserting a knife or toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. If not, microwave for another 1-2 minutes.

  8. Let the cake cool for a few minutes before removing it from the pan.

  9. Serve the cake warm or at room temperature.
