  • 1 cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • tsp Baking soda
  • ½ cup Raw khandsari sugar
  • ¼ cup Coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp Passionfruit juice
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 3 tbsp Yogurt
  • tsp Baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 180 C for at least 20 minutes.
  • Take a mixing bowl and add 1 cup whole wheat flour to the sieve.
  • Add 1 tsp baking powder to the flour.
  • To this add ¼ tsp salt.
  • Add a pinch or ⅛ tsp baking soda to the flour.
  • Sift everything, mix well and keep it aside.
  • Take 3 tbsp of yogurt in a small bowl and add a pinch of baking soda. Beat it well with a spoon and keep it aside. After a couple of minutes, the mixture turns frothy because of the reaction between baking soda and yogurt.
  • Meanwhile, extract juice from passionfruit. For making juice, just take the passionfruit pulp on to a strainer and mash it with the spoon. I got 3 tbsp of juice from 2 passionfruits.
  • Now take a mixing bowl and add ¼ cup coconut oil and ½ cup sugar. Whisk it well for a minute or so with a hand whisker.
  • Now add buttermilk-soda mixture to this and mix it once. To this, add 3 tbsp passionfruit juice and whisk it for a couple of minutes.
  • Now add sifted flour mixture to this wet mixture in three intervals. Every time when you add flour mixture, add 1 tbsp of milk and mix it with light hands.
  • The final mixture should be of pouring ribbon consistency. If required you can add one more tbsp of milk or passionfruit juice.
  • Line a baking pan with butter paper and pour the cake mixture into it. You can add passionfruit seeds or pulp as topping as well.
  • Bake the cake for 30 minutes at 180 C. Check at 25 minutes as baking time depends varies from oven to oven. If a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the cake, then the cake is ready.
  • Take cake out of the oven and cool it on a wire rack. Slice the cake when it is cooled completely and the cake is ready to serve!
