Eggless Coconut Tea Cake

Ooh la la I am so excited to share this Eggless Coconut Tea Cake with all of you:))….. Didn’t get proper sleep yesterday night as constantly I was getting hunch of making a Tea Cake. Also mostly eggs are used in Tea Cakes so I thought of making the eggless ones as usual. I was very confused to make a Lemon Tea Cake Or Coconut Tea Cake. Ultimately I thought my family loves coconut so why not make a Coconut Tea Cake! What to say my family and my pet loved this super moist, soft, fluffy, delicious Coconut Tea Cake. I made the Tea Cakes in a loaf pan so I should have ideally called as Coconut Tea Bread lols. I sliced this awesome Coconut Tea Cake and we all ate merrily with hot cup of Tea.

Guess I have become an expert in making eggless cakes Kudos to me for that. I did a lot of research for Coconut Tea Cake but couldn’t find any suitable recipe. Hence I came up with my own version. I was a bit tensed as to how the cake will be?? But than cooking is all about trial and errors. But I was really happy with the outcome of this cake. That too my first Tea cake with coconut and without eggs.
