Eggless Baath Cake Recipe – Goan Baath Cake Recipe | Christmas Sweets Recipe

Easter Or Christmas Goan Baath Cake is always welcome :) that too an eggless version… Actually one of my reader Pooja Saha requested me to make Eggless Baath Cake. I have already made Baath Cake earlier last year. So Pooja and all other vegetarian people dedicating this eggless version of Goan Baath Cake to all of you. Goan Baath Cake is easy, delish, soft and leaves a nice flavor on your mouth palette. Actually this is an instant version as normal Goan Baath Cake have to be soaked overnight.

However this Goan Baath Cake is soaked only for an hour. The outcome is beautiful, supple and smooth textured cake. I am gonna make some more as I will be giving as Easter goodies to my friends in Pune and relatives and friends back in Mumbai. Nowadays people are asking me to open my restaurant and start taking orders. The thought is sweet but I will take one thing at one time. Restaurant will follow may be later but as of now just blogging and cooking :)

During festive season it’s great time to make sweets. Spend time in prayers, celebrate with family. That reminds me I haven’t made Easter eggs still lot of work to be completed gosh. I wish I had four hands and two brain just kidding.

Hmmm Marzipans are my favorite. But this time I won’t make them but will buy them Or ask someone to make for me ;) I had bought this bundt pan just 2 days back. I was quite anxious to use them. Just like a small baby is curious to play with their new toys. Guess I did justice to my new bundt pan :)

Notes
1. Very important don't keep opening your oven door. This will lead to cake cracking.
2. All ovens have different capacity and temperature so be alert while you bake. 3. If your cake starts giving fragrance and leaves the edges of your pan. That means it's almost baked Or baking. Do a skewer test always while baking cake.
4. You could use nuts like pistachios Or rose petals for a different variation of the cake.
5. At any point of time you feel the cake is not baked. There is nothing to get hassled keep it back in the oven until it's baked :)
6. Don't overbake Or underbake any cake.
7. Usually people don't like flax seed flavor in cakes. But lemme tell you roasted ones taste great and leaves a nice nutty flavor in your cakes. It's healthy and eggless too! Moreover one cannot make out if you ever added flaxseed into Baath cake.
