ABOUT Eggless Lemon Cake RECIPE

I am calling all my vegetarian friends; to try this eggless, moist and super simple cake. The lemon zest in the cake perks it up and leaves you tingling for more. It may sound strange but I have come across more vegetarian Indians here in Denmark than I ever knew in Pune circle itself. Hence it goes without saying that my parties and dinners have eggless recipes and desserts to serve their palates. I must have baked this recipe multiple times and it has never failed me. My guests and friends love it and are surprised each time that an eggless cake can be so soft and moist. Delicious of course!!:) I will take up more techniques of baking eggless cakes going forward…. Here is one of them..
