How to make the recipe?
  1. Preheat oven at 180°C for exactly ten mins before baking. Grease the pan with oil and dust some flour over it. Tap the pan to remove excess flour if any.
  2. Sift flour + baking powder + salt and keep aside.
  3. Beat sugar, oil and vanilla essence until they blend into each other.
  4. Add milk keep beating on medium speed until they incorporate well into each other.
  5. Fold wet mixture into dry ingredients into 3 batches gently.
  6. Mix baking soda with lukewarm milk. Give a nice stir fold into the above mixture.
  7. Pour the cake batter into the greased pan. Bake for 25 to 30 mins at 180 °C Or until the skewer comes out clean.
  8. Allow to cool down. Gently unmould the cake. Pierce the cake surface with a fork once cake cools down.
  9. Combine all the ingredients mentioned above for soaking syrup. Pour Or drizzle half of it and spread on the cake. Give about 30 mins for the cake to absorb the syrup. I didn't add rest of half as that much syrup was enough for my cake.
  10. Place the cake in the fridge to chill. Beat chilled whipped cream with sugar. Pipe the whipped cream into the shape you desire or just spread them all over the cake.
  11. Chill for an hour more. Top with sliced berries, mangoes etc. Slice into triangles Or squares.
  12. Serve Eggless Tresleches cake chilled.
Notes
1. It's important to use chilled milk for the cake
2. Please don't under cook Or over cook the cake.
3. Frosting is optional but it tastes good and looks good.
4. I have added less sugar for my cake as the syrup is sweet else my cake will be too sweet. So if you like more sweet add more sugar for your cake I prefer less sugar.
