An Eggless Yogurt Cake.... dedicated to HER.... she is beautiful, poised, innocent yet diligent, soft natured but firm on her decisions, fiercely independent,,, economically and otherwise ..... she is the woman of the 21st century. I very much miss a daughter in my life. I remember, when I was carrying both of us even fixed individual name for her. My senior did not like the name I selected and vice versa. Perhaps, to restore peace at home, we were gifted with a prince. Had I have a girl child, I definitely would love to see her as this.... an independent, confident human being with values. I am not so much of a feminist. I have seen, experienced that women get wild to women more instead of been a support . Each one of us needs to be a humanist first, it is how we behave with others that makes us what we are. I have experienced abusive attack on my self respect from both genders, though very few in number. What is required is to handle it firmly without been abusive in return, that we fail to learn. For that proper personality development is required. Hence sincerely wish this generation kids be able to handle any kind of abuse firmly. I do not understand why we have to be abusive when been decent does not cost a penny.
I like preparing eggless cakes considering many in our country are vegetarian. This time I had a lot of yogurt in the refrigerator. So planned for an Eggless Yogurt Cake. Since I am a learner baker, I do explore through Google for the right measurement. Day before yesterday, while I was looking for an Eggless Yogurt Cake, I came across this yogurt cake recipe of Bhaktin Christina at an Iskcon vegetarian food site and liked it. Without looking for more options I went ahead with her recipe. The topping idea with nutella and a store bought icing is mine. I was in a jiffy and so left the idea of preparing my own icing. You can always prepare a topping of your own. Come let us prepare together an easy to make Eggless Yogurt Cake.
