Pom-Agave Whole Wheat Cake(Healthy,Eggless and Low-Fat or No-Fat)

Yesterday I made this cake as my daughter was asking me for a cake since afternoon.She loves cakes and balloons .She would come and ask me every few minutes if I am making a cake.So finally I had to think and come up with an instant cake recipe with whatever I had in the house.I generally don't keep all-purpose/maida flour in the house.You can see that the cake recipes I make are with the regular whole wheat flour we use for making rotis or chapatis.Well , we and our neighbours liked this cake so hope you will like it too.

Again this is almost a healthy cake.I say almost because I used little condensed milk which has more sugars but still I used only 1/4th cup of it.Whole wheat , pomegranate juice, lowfat milk and agave nectar are healthy ingredients .I did not use any oil or butter.All in all I can call this a healthy cake. 

These days I am using my Toaster-Oven for most of the baking instead of the big oven as I use the main oven mostly for storage (as space is a problem and I have few cabinets in the kitchen),so it's hard to take out the stuff every time I need to bake.

As I made this cake as an experiment I could not take pictures of the ingredients in the starting . Let's start making this mini flat cake-------------

Dry  Ingredients :
Whole Wheat Flour/Atta..............1cup
Baking Soda................................pinch
Baking Powder............................pinch

Wet Ingredients :
 Pom Juice...................................1/4cup
Agave Nectar..............................1/4cup
Condensed milk...........................1/4cup
Organic Super Fruit Spread..........1tbsp

Toppings :
Chocolate Chips.................few for topping

Preparation :
Preheat the toaster oven at  375 F.While it is pre-heating take wheat flour,baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and mix them well.Now add all the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk the batter with a hand mixer so that the batter is nice and smooth.

I made the cake in the tray that comes with the toaster oven.I applied 1tsp of oil to the tray and poured the batter into it and spread it evenly and topped it with few chocolate chips and placed the tray in the oven.

After 15 minutes I checked the cake and it was slowly rising and baking.

After another 20 more minutes I checked the cake with a tooth-pick and the tooth-pick came out clean.

I turned off the toaster-oven and took the cake tray out and let it cool.

You can see the back and front side of the cake.This cake is nice and moist and is glossy on the top.

Later cut it into pieces and serve as is or with icecream.This cake looked like brownies after I cut them into pieces.

Note :
1) It took 35minutes for the entire cake to bake.Each toaster oven is different so keep checking in between so that the cake does not burn.

2) As I use whole wheat flour the cake itself looks like a chocolate cake.

3) For us the cake was sweeter(as we eat very less sweet or no sweet,next time I will skip condensed milk and use milk in its place too) other wise the cake is just right for a person who can enjoy normal sweetness.For someone who has cravings for sweet they may add more agave or condensed milk.

4) The organic super-fruit spread I used is from Trader Joe's.It is very low in sugar and is made of grapes,cherries and berries. 

5) Overall this cake is just perfect and will surely make it again.

I am sending this recipe to CFK-WWF Event hosted by Priya Mitharwal and started by Sharmi .
