I was not a big fan of egg less cakes previously because my taste buds are used to the cakes with eggs. Once i prepare egg less cakes at home i started loving these guilt free soft and flavorful cakes. Egg less cakes makes the cake making process easy and also while eating if we take more than a piece we wont feel guilty and can able to enjoy the food.

       Some cakes like Orange or Lemon flavored cakes really does not require eggs as the juices of citrus fruits can able to make the cake more softer. The zest of these fruits makes the cakes more flavorful than other cakes. This cake was also a super soft and also tasty rich in orange flavor.
