I love everything Cinnamon and this Eggless Cinnamon cake is the proof of that.
The elegance of this cake is in the beautiful delicate swirls of cinnamon running through the middle.
Very often, vegetarian eggless cakes are a pale version of the actual stuff.Usually- hard, tasteless, sometimes pasty, weirdly greasy and with a bad aftertaste because of all the artificial additives.This cake though is nothing of that sort.It has a beautiful crumb,a spongy airy texture and a taste that can easily rival most cakes with eggs.
It’s made entirely with easily available pantry ingredients and if you don’t tell people they will not know that this cake is EGGLESS
Isn’t there something so romantic about this cake?
I could eat it at anytime of the day and in any form! In fact, Cinnamon Swirl Cake can be served while it’s still warm, right out of the oven(well almost) so you don’t have to wait for it to cool down but it is also great at room temperature or cold.
