Eggless Coconut Cake – Baking Eggless Challenge, February 2012

Finally, i got my post up today. Baking Eggless,  a New Group of Enthusiastic Bakers, Started by Gayathri, Where every month we take up a Egg-based Baking Recipe and try to convert it to an Eggless Bake. It is Adventurous, i say!!!! Coz, the first recipe of baking an Eggless Coconut Cake, turned out DISASTROUS!!!! yes, the whole cake turned bitter and My Weekend Morning Effort all gone to trash!!!! i was in the verge of crying, thanx to harini, she helped to find out the Villain (made by me) in my recipe. I have added way too much Baking powder for the amount of flour used!!! Lesson Learnt, the hard way!!!! 🙂
I gave it a break for 2 days and tried it again, this time using Milk and yoghurt. Voila!!!! Success!!!! Loved the end result, fluffy, flavorful Cake!!!! We enjoyed every bite of it!!!! lets hop on to recipe
