Easy Eggless Microwave Plum Cake | Using Wheat Flour

I am on a Baking or rather Caking Spree!!! The cakes and cookies i see daily all thanks to the beautiful season of Christmas are just forcing me to bake some goodies myself… It was just last week i baked this beautiful Eggless Apple Cake and here i am with the cake of the season – Plum Cake! This yummy cake has been my favorite since childhood and when i chanced upon a recipe where it was made eggless and in a microwave within 5 mins, i just jumped with excitement…. Can it be easier??!!

                     I also take this opportunity {feels like a thanksgiving speech but nevertheless} to show you a little art i made for KKAJ  [#favfbfoodgroup] food art theme – A Cute little Plump Snowman… Ain’t he cute? 🙂

Back to my cake, i was actually scared to try this recipe as it sounded impossibly easy but me and my experiments…. So even though with no great hopes, I mixed,microwaved, inverted the cake anddddd i was in for a pleasant surprise!! Just look at the cake…. So very moist,well risen,spongy and super delicious too… This is by far the best cake i have made….

And before i forget, all this sponginess is with wheat flour…. Who says cakes with wheat does not turn good.. Give it a try and you will stop using refined flour… I just loved this plum cake.. Hope you all will try and love it too.. Wishing all my readers a Happy Christmas!!! Happy and Healthy Cooking! 🙂
