I think I was the only person left out in the blogging world to try out this cake. And now I know why it is so popular. It is certainly one of the best cakes I have tasted. It is so easy to make made almost with scratch, yet healthy. It involves just a little oil and that too can be avoided as Shilpa of Aayis recipe who was the first to make this one says.And the other thing is , the recipe requires only baking soda and is eggless. First I was a bit apprehensive, whether the cake will rise properly. Anyway , I decided to go ahead with the same recipe. And yes indeed, the cake rose so well and was very spongy and moist. I was amazed and yes, I am going to make the cake again. A winner recipe...Thanks to shilpa. I made it for snacks party and was a instant hit.
