Eggless Sathumaavu/ Health Mix Vanilla Cake

I have already tried the sathumaavu cake version shared by a non blogger for my event " Come on - lets cook buddies " but still wanted to experiment with it and so made this super moist and a soft cake . This cake is little dense as we have used healthy mix / sathumavu in it but they are so so moist and who will say No to a healthy cake . This cake can be frosted or even without frosting it tastes yummm. 

Sathumaavu is a health mix powder which can be consumed by any aged people bcoz it is filled with nutrients needed for all ages.This in india are given to growing kids mainly as improves child development and body building . Sathumaavu kanji / porridge is a very very healthy way  to have this ingredient . Sathumaavu is made with Ragi, Corn, Parboiled Rice, Wheat,Green gram dal, Spilt gram dal, Almond/Badam,Cashew nuts, Barley, Peanut,Sago, Horse gram -which is made into powder and used for making porridge  , seeing the ingredients you can guess how healthy they are . So thats y its is called "Sathu " means Healthy and "Maavu" means Flour, an health mix pd .

Cake with sathumaavu / health mix is a delicious and a healthy  tea time cake or can be a dessert . This I made for my second week of BM under eggless cakes theme .Lets move on to the recipe.
