Hey There. Few months back I celebrated my birthday. Well not like party celebration but like last year I like to prepare something myself and distribute it in office. Last time it was carrot pudding or famously known as gajar ka halwa. This time I decided to have a cake. And not to disappoint my vegetarian friends I decided to go for an eggless version. I was pleasantly surprised when everyone claimed it to be too good. It was soft, the sweetness was perfect and the chocolate syrup I had poured on top was like ‘icing on the cake’. J is that too much cakey and sweet for you. Well birthdays are meant to be that right?
This is not a round cake as is the custom. I thought for even cake pieces it would be better to bake a square or rectangle cake. Moving on to the recipe.
