Eggless Fresh Juice Cake


Our parents are in India but we celebrate every family members birthday here in US. I prepare a sweet dish for sure and celebrate with cake cutting sometimes!!!  So this time for my Mom’s birthday it was Cake time – but then it had to be eaten all by my husband so did not want all the sugar and maida. Also had to prepare an eggless version. I remembered reading somewhere that mashed banana can replace eggs. Fortunately I had a very ripe banana which I may have otherwise just thrown away – saved myself a sin of wasting food and used it in this Eggless Fresh juice cake.
