Pineapple Upside Down Cake | Eggless Pineapple Upside Down Cake

eggless cake recipes

I have made pineapple upside down cake already and blogged it but the caramel syrup was made with jaggery bcoz I brown sugar was not available at home then , But I wanted post the brown sugar version too so included this as a part of the marathon . I know I am late as usual just settling things down slowly , I miss my old place but then things change. When I was in a hurry to make all my bakes just 2 weeks before it started I didn't think about I will post all the hard work on time and as usual am little behind but hopefully I will complete this marathon as I have done with all my baking posting is a hard task when unopened baggage are around I wish I over come this hurdle too. Now coming to my eggless version of pineapple cake I was in so much hurry to make this cake on that day bcoz I had a task of baking atleast 4 a day and so you can see the cake is slightly damaged by me. I inverted the cake when it was super hot so don't be in a hurry let the cake cool down I know you people are more patient than me. The cake it self will speak when you make it no need for me explain its deliciousness I shared this spongy and flavorful cake with friends and they enjoyed it. It may look little work to make this cake but it is so easy trust me. Moving on to the recipe.

Eggless Devils Chocolate Food Cake | Chocolate Bundt Cake with Glaze

  
Chocolate Cake Recipes

Chocolate Cakes are my daughters fav and I love to make them for her though she wants only piece to enjoy and she is done , I just love to see how excited she is while I make a chocolate cake. She keeps on asking me to make chocolate cake every time and I just can't say no to her. Devils chocolate cake was in my to do list for long when I deciding what I should for this marathon then I was sure to include this cake but I was hesitant about the number of eggs in cake to be substituted but still I tried this cake twice and it turned out so moist and yummm. The first time when I made this cake I added some chocolate chips My bad I just forgot that chocolate chips can sink and stick to the pans so the next time I just skipped the chocolate chips , actually it would have been better if  you add mini chocolate chips . But anyway this time I was out of time and just baked it with out the chocolate chips.

Devils Chocolate food Cake is a super moist . It is difficult to differentiate between a normal chocolate and devils chocolate food cake but the only thing is this cake it filled with lot of chocolaty goodness making it more deeper chocolaty color. Traditionally more eggs are added to this cake but I made totally egg free substituting flax seeds n place of eggs and they made the cake super moist. Now coming to recipe  for Day 5...
