Foxtail Millet / Thinai Cake | Foxtail Millet Recipes

Millets recipes so far have been modified Indian recipes. But they can be also used for western recipes like cakes. This is my first attempt at using millets for cakes.
The most important aspect of this recipe is that it can make children (and adults also) have millets without knowing.

Foxtail Millet Flour
½ cup
Wheat Flour
½ cup
Brown Sugar / Powdered Sugar
¾ or ½ cup
Coco Powder
1 tbs
½ cup
¼ cup
Baking Powder
1 tes
Baking Soda
¼ tes
Vannila Essence
½   tes
Choco Chips
1 tbs

1. Grease the baking tray with oil and wheat flour; tap to remove the excess flour. Keep it aside.
2. Sieve foxtail millet flour, wheat flour, baking soda and baking powder, all together twice.
3. In a mixing bowl, add milk, oil, powdered brown sugar, coco powder and vanilla essence. Mix them well with beater until the sugar dissolves completely.
4. Now add the sieved flour mixture and mix it well until you get creamy batter without lumps.
5.  Then pour the batter in the greased tray and garnish with choco chips. Then bake it at 180 degree C for 35 – 40 mins or until the inserted tooth pick comes out clean. (mine took 38 mins)
6. Remove the tray from the oven and cool it completely. Remove the cake from the tray and slice it.
This Soft and aromatic cake is ready to eat with tea.
