Eggless Orange Moist cake


Eggless Orange Moist Cake but I could call it a 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and a Diet Cake. As of now I would say that I am better in baking, thought of trying out moist cake. This is was my second attempt with moist cake and it was a big hit in family and among my daughter’s friends. As X-Mas season started, stay tuned for more cakes and cookie recipes.

I have used palm sugar instead of sugar which is good for diabetics, oil and orange juice instead of butter and egg which reduces the fat. And so I call this cake as 100% Vegetarian, Diabetic-Friendly and Diet Cake. Let us move on to the recipe…
