We get it 🙂 It’s hard to put into words just how much that special man in your life means to you. Whether it’s your dad, uncle, brother, grandpa — anyone who has been a father figure to you — you want to make sure you express your love and gratitude for him the right way come June 20. Whether it’s a Tiered Tower or Simple Homemade little loaf cake is a wonderful way to celebrate.
Last year, I baked No sugar super healthy treat – Dates Prunes Banana Cake in which I used oats flour and whole wheat spelled flakes homemade flour.
This time I used Oats flour and replaced whole wheat flour with whole wheat spelled flakes homemade flour. Oats are a vegan super staple due to all the great ways you can enjoy them. They help thicken gravies, work as healthy substitutes for refined flours and grains. You can add oats flour to whole wheat flour and make whole wheat oats chapati or paratha.

I try to add oats to pretty much everything – dosa ,uttapam, idli, chilla or cookies. Then why not in baking ?. These brownies are simple to make and have all the qualities you want in a brownie. They’re rich, fudgy, moist, chocolatey, and delicious too.

HOW TO BAKE THE CAKE IN KADAI (WOK)
In a heavy bottom kadai add a cup of salt or sand. Place a steel stand in a wok. Cover and preheat the kadai on high heat for about 8 minutes. (Adding salt at the bottom ensures that the kadai doesn’t burn. Heavy bottom kadai acts as oven and ensures even cooking from all sides). I never used salt in my baking because I use a heavy bottom kadai (Prestige Brand) and I am baking for the past 2 years in the same kadai. It works perfectly fine. But, it depends on the brand, quality of the kadai.
After 8 minutes, lower the heat and put baking tin in a kadai. Cover a lid and bake bread for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes check cake with a knife, if the mixture does not stick, it means the bread is done. If batter still sticks to knife then again bread for another 10 minutes.
