Jackfruit Cake / Chakka Cake


1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup + 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 cloves
10 – 12 jackfruit pieces
2 eggs
1 tp vanilla essence
1/2 cup oil
10 cashew nuts, chopped
8-10 cashew nuts, for garnishing


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius. Grease a round cake tin with butter / baking spray or line with baking paper.
  2. In a pan, add 1/2 cup sugar and heat at low-medium flame till it melts. Add 1/4 cup water carefully and mix and boil. Switch off the flame and keep it aside to cool.
  3. Add 1/2 cup sugar and cloves in a blender and make it to powder and keep it aside.
  4. In a bowl, sift together plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and keep it aside.
  5. Place 10 chopped cashew nuts in a separate bowl and toss them with 1 tbsp flour mixture and keep it aside ( this will help prevent the cashew nuts from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking.) 
  6. In a blender, add eggs and vanilla essence and blend well. Add oil to this and blend again.
  7. Add powdered sugar ( step 3) and blend again. Then add caramelised sugar ( step 2) and blend it again till well mixed. Transfer to a bowl.
  8. In a blender, add the jackfruit pieces and blend to a paste. Add this to the egg mixture and mix well.
  9. Add the flour mixture little by little and fold in gently.
  10. Then add chopped cashew nuts and mix.
  11. Transfer the batter into the prepared cake tin and tap for few times. Place some cashew nuts on top.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  13. Cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely… Cut into pieces and serve…
