Finger Millet / Ragi Breakfast Cake Recipe by Veena Theagarajan

Ragi is my favourite grain. I love it in any form. So far I have not used it in baking. I wanted to bake something during the long weekend yet bit healthy then normal cakes/muffin. Also trying do something that will be good for breakfast. I was looking around in the net .. But instead of using any particular recipe I ended up creating my own based on what I had available in my kitchen. Crossing my fingers during entire baking time. Wow! it came out so soft and tasty. Perfect treat for the holiday! Guilt free too!
