Mango and white chocolate cake with aquafava

I was not so much aware about this substance aquafava  until I decided to try a healthy eggless cake .I bake egg-less cakes with condensed milk and butter as an ingredient as they help to make the cake soft fluffy and moist. Aquafava  is almost a magic ingredient which can cause miracles in your baking.It is the broth which you get from boiling chickpeas  in water and it creates soft peaks on beating similar to that of egg whites.

Aquafava literally means bean water as ‘aqua ‘ means water and “fava” may have descended from the word ‘fava beans’.You can get this liquid by boiling any beans in water like red kidney beans but chickpeas give you the best result specially the canned ones.

But don’t get carried away by its appearance ,the whipped aquafava though it looks similar to egg whites ,does not give you as much volume as your egg will give ,if  3 egg whites which is about 1 cup when mixed with 5 tbsp of flour can give you a 500 g cake but 1 cup aquafava with 5 tbsp of flour will give you only 250 g of cake.I learnt it through experience.But the texture is great.I am baking with whole wheat flour now a days which make the cake a little dense and difficult to handle but worth trying.

    1. No it is very much possible.If you are trying for the first time use all purpose flour instead of whole wheat.It will be easier.If you are ok with eggs use egg whites instead of aquafava
