Eggless Cornmeal - Lime Cake

Now that the summer vacation is in full swing for the kids, I am unable to find time to make baked goodies they like as often. The other day my little one kind of gave me a hint that I had totally forgotten to make a cake for her. That spurred me on to look into some bookmarked recipes to make a lovely cake just for the kids!

The only error I made was using corn meal instead of corn meal flour. But the taste was awesome and it was very filling as well. The cake was a little crumbly but the lime zest was a super addition. This forms part of Day 2 Week 4 of BM #29.

Eggless Cornmeal - Lime Cake

Source - here
Ingredients - 

Corn meal flour (fine)  1/2 cup [I used the coarse flour and so the cake was a little gritty.]
All Purpose Flour / Maida 1 cup
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Salt couple pinches
Lime Zest 1 tsp 
Sugar 1/2 cup
Lime / Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp
Curds/ Yogurt 2 Tbsp
Milk 3 Tbsp

Eggless Cornmeal - Lime Cake
Two mini loaves

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda and the lime zest. Mix well.

Separately blend oil, sugar, lime juice, curds and milk until it is silky and smooth.

Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Mix well to get a lump free batter.

Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare the cake pan to be used either by greasing it or by lining it by a parchment paper. I used a small loaf pan and two mini loaf pans.

Pour the batter upto 2/3rds and bake in the center rack for about 35-40 min or until the tester comes out clean upon piercing it in the center.

Run a knife along the sides and unmould. PLace it on a cooling rack before slicing it.
