Salted Vegetable Cake- an easy evening snack

Hey everyone, Welcome to foodbymama- a homemaker’s guide for those who love food and cooking and basically everything about it. I try using the simplest ingredients to create finger- licking recipes for my family.

I’ve been reading a lot of cake recipes lately and really wanted to try one. But then, you know, all the sugar and high calorie stuffs would come haunt me up. So I thought why not infuse a simple snack in that cake form so I get to satisfy both of my needs and came up with this egg less salty cake. Yep, it’s totally egg less and calorie free as well! Now it may sound bizarre to have veggies in a cake, but anyhow I tried it and it was spot on! Plus you can always, always have it for your evening snack. Added advantage-I made my lil one eat all the veggies through this(Mission accomplished!).  So, it’s healthy, it’s delicious and it looks beautiful- I don’t think there’s another reason needed to try it. I’ve added yogurt and effervescent salt here to replace the eggs (the salt I used was the basic Eno fruit salt). Also, you can use a variety of veggies- whatever you like or are available in your kitchen. Here’s how you can make this cake-
