Make this simple eggless lemon cake with easily available ingredients in India. We have made this a vegetarian lemon cake ( no egg lemon cake) as there are a very large number of Indian’s who don’t eat eggs.

Indian style lemon cake is made from lemon rind, lemon juice, plain flour, baking powder, baking soda, curds, powdered sugar and oil.

To make vegetarian lemon cake, combine the plain flour, baking soda, baking powder in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside. Combine the curds, powdered sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and oil in a deep bowl, mix well using a whisk. Add the plain flour mixture and mix well using a spatula. Cool slightly, loosen the sides with the help of a knife and demould it. Cut the cake into wedges. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.

Bring together the soft succulence of the best of cakes with the citrusy scent and flavour of lemon, to make a perfectly delightful eggless lemon cake treat.

The cake dough of the eggless lemon cake is perked up with tangy ingredients like lemon juice and rind, which gives a fresh aroma and refreshing flavour to the cake.

Serve the no egg lemon cake warm, with tea, to enjoy the pleasant citrusy tinge. For those who enjoy such fresh and tangy flavours, there are more recipes like the Lemon Butter Icing and Lemon Cheesecake.

I tried this recipe, and it''s amazing because of first it''s simple ingredients, which are readily available at home, and it''s amazing in taste too. just a suggestion, can the lemon flavor be increased by any means, as it has a very mild taste of it.

This eggless lemon cake is a fabulous recipe. I loved this cake mainly because of it''s lemon flavour. It is very different from the regular vanilla or chocolate cakes that we have. It has a very subtle flavour of lemon which is just perfect.
