Egg less Lemon Drizzle Cake

Soft, fluffy, lemony, tangy..

All these adjective would very well define this yummy lemon drizzle cake. I tried it recently from my recently purchased cookbook. Lemon cake has been on my to try list for a long time and in fact, I have tried a couple of recipes. But, the result were not all that satisfactory. So, when I saw this recipe in Sanjeev Kapoor's Vegetarian Library Collection, I grabbed the opportunity to bake it. I baked half of the original recipe and also modified the recipe a bit. Overall, I am very happy with the results

The cake was light and moist. It remained so even after a day. By that next day it was over. It is sort of addictive. Let's check out the recipe now.
