Palakkad: An innovative product, jackfruit seed cake has been gaining popularity in Palakkad, Kerala. It has 40% of jack seed flour, 20% of unripe (raw) jack carpel flour.
It does not contain any maida or wheat ingredient. The rest is all made of jackfruit pieces, eggs and sugar.
Palakkad Social Service Society (PSSP) outlet in Palakkad is now getting advance orders for this cake for weddings, parties etc. A good number of people have appreciated its taste.
‘Jaxo’ being its brand name, the jack wonder nut cake, marketed in attractive packaging, had drawn attention in a big way at the Chennai Jack Festival a few months ago and it was a huge sell-out.
Now PSSP, with the help of a local bakery, is making R&D on more baking possibilities by using jackfruit seed flour, carpel flour etc.
Being gluten-free, this will have more acceptability in other states in the days to come.
