Mix wet ingredients- oil, apple sauce, mashed sweet potato, apple cider vinegar with each other nicely. Add jaggery sugar to this mixture.

Line a baking vessel with butter paper. Pour the batter into the baking vessel over the butter paper .Bake at 180 degrees centigrade for 45-50 minutes or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
I baked it in microwave mode for 5 minutes to ensure that the whole cake is completely baked after convection baking is over.
After baking is over, cool it outside for half an hour. Put it upside down on aplate. Remove the butter paper from bottom. Straighten it up & cut as per choice.
This cake was moist & soft.It was aptly sweet.
