Lately, I am inclined towards healthier recipes that do not contain white sugar. Millets have become my go-to ingredients for daily meals as there are various types of millets available. With Mother’s Day approaching, I decided to make a healthy cake at home before my family brings one from outside. Today, I used finger millet to create a healthy cake recipe. Although chocolate cake is a popular choice, I opted for a healthy version and made a Chocolate Ragi cake.

      For mothers who prioritize a healthy lifestyle and are mindful of their health, vegan ragi cake is an excellent choice. This eggless cake can be easily made in an hour and makes for a lovely gesture to surprise your mother with.


 This recipe for a Healthy Ragi Millet Cake utilizes readily available ingredients commonly found in most households. The main ingredient is Finger Millet, known as Ragi in Hindi and Nachni in Marathi, which boasts a small, red-brown hue and is a rich source of protein and calcium. To ensure the chocolate ragi cake maintains its healthy properties, I have omitted wheat flour from the recipe. 

   For those who follow a vegan lifestyle, Almond milk is a great option as a plant-based milk ingredient. It is rich in Vitamin E.

  I chose to use Jaggery instead of white sugar for a healthier option when baking my cake in chocolate flavor. The combination of ragi and chocolate is absolutely delicious.

One can use baking powder and baking soda to help their cake rise.

Coconut oil is a Vegan substitute that makes the cake less dense.
