Cakes are generally baked for celebration but now a days we bake everyday to make kids have healthy nutritious food prepared at home. Gluten free cakes are baked without wheat or maida. Baking with maida is very easy. Baking without eggs and without wheat or maida is really tricky. In the beginning I learnt the basic baking using maida and eggs. Later, I wanted to experiment this gluten free and eggfree cakes. So this recipe involves tapioca flour and finger millet which are very nutritious. I have used nendram banana which i had it in hand.
