eggless gingerbread cake recipe

EGGLESS GINGERBREAD CAKE RECIPE is a fool proof one and it makes a super soft, moist and spicy cake which is not too sweet to the taste buds. Made this cake with jaggery / gur syrup and brown sugar which paved in way for a depth and flavorful outcome. Made a smaller batch of this eggless ginger bread recipe on a trial version and it worked absolutely awesome. Icing ain’t necessary for this recipe, if needed sugar dusting on top for kids would work or drizzle of honey.

This light and soft cake works like a charm for tea time. This recipe is inspired from Easy eggless baking book.
