It's almost 8 months passed when I started blogging and frankly speaking before it I had hardly baked any cake . Blogging became a source of experimenting new things for me. I started baking as well and found immense happiness after seeing a perfectly baked cake . Of course a few attempts were failure but now I have learnt a lot . Sometimes I think Did I forget to post this basic sponge cake . Oh! Yes I did , so when Srivalli announced the themes for BM#33 I have to surely pick Eggless cakes as it will give me opportunity to make my baking skillful . I have read somewhere that by practice you may become a good baker. Hence this is my time and hunting ground for baking eggless cakes for three days. So let's start the recipe . Yum
