I have got plenty of requests from friends and readers to make a healthy wheat flour cake. So today in this post I am sharing a healthy, low fat and maida free recipe of whole wheat flour and chocolate cake. I modified my recipe of low fat chocolate cake which I had shared earlier in my blog and came out with this recipe of wheat flour cake which uses just 1 tbsp. of butter.

I was apprehensive as to how it would turn out after baking. To my surprise it came out perfect. It was more dense than the cake made with maida but was soft. So next time you wish to eat a healthy and low fat cake you can turn to this recipe. This cake might be a little less tasty than the cake made with Maida but it is definitely delicious, soft and spongy and we can eat it with a satisfaction as it is healthy. Do try out this healthy wheat and chocolate cake recipe and I am sure you will like it. 

Here I have dusted the cake with powdered sugar. But you can also add cream, ganache or any topping of your choice.


¾ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup milk
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp melted butter


  • First add vinegar to the milk and set aside for about 15 minutes. This is done to get sour milk.
  • Meanwhile take a dry bowl, add wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda bicarbonate and salt. Mix well and then using a sieve, sieve it twice. This is done to incorporate air into the mixture. Keep this dry mix ready in a bowl.
  • Then take another bowl and beat the egg. When it has turned creamy, add the sugar, vanilla essence and beat until small bubbles are seen.
  • Then add butter and beat again. It should be smooth and fluffy.
  • Finally add the dry ingredients and sour milk little by little.
  • Mix well with a spoon so that there are no lumps and the batter is very smooth.
  • Then preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 170 degree Celsius with the lower rods on and grease the baking dish with butter.
  • Pour the batter on the baking dish and place it in the central rack.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes at the same temperature or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Temperature and time may change in your oven and hence keep a close watch if you are making for the first time).
  • Once done, take it out and allow it to cool. Dust some powdered sugar on top, cut and serve.
