When it comes about baking cakes I am a beginner and as I prefer eggless diet, I found it a little difficult to get the perfect texture in my cakes without eggs. Well I am learning new techniques and methods from this huge Blogosphere to get that soft and spongy texture without eggs.  I have baked this cake with egg replacer and it's texture was perfect and tasted good as well.
This was my first attempt in an upside down cake and I was happy with the results. For alphabet "V" , under Baked Theme this is my entry for the ABC cooking series of BM#32 which is running since one month. So let's start the recipe . Yum
