Tahini Bundt Cake

This is a really healthy cake recipe that is super simple.


  • 1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup jaggery
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • cinnamon powder to taste
  • 1 cup orange juice/sweet lime juice
  • any nut butter for greasing
  • cashew powder for sprinkling on the cake


Preheat oven to 275. Prepare a bundt baking pan by greasing it by any nut butter a little.

Mix all the ingredients except orange juice. Lastly add the orange juice, mix well and bake right away. (or you can mix all the dry ingredients and in another bowl the wet ingredients and then mix both, stir well and bake. Do not mix with an appliance, just with your hands or a spoon). The baking powder and orange juice combination gives an effervescence which helps the cake rise, so its important to bake soon after mixing in the orange juice.

This cake takes about 1/2 hour to bake. Check to see if its done by sticking in a fork. If the fork comes out clean, its ready.

Serve by lightly topped with cashew powder
