Eggless Apple Cake

Apples are a great fruit. They taste good , smell divine and allow you to do a lot with them-baking wise.

Lakshmi’s notes:
I replaced the eggs in the original recipe with apple puree. For the loaf I baked (pic below) I have used an apple crumble topping instead of just demerara sugar.Please note that it turns out  darker than what is indicated in the picture – since Mandira skipped the topping and I used an apple crumble topping, our cakes look lighter. The recipe also works well for muffins – reduce baking time by 10-15 minutes since muffins bake much faster.

Mandira’s notes: This is my first eggless cake. I have some kind of a mental block against eggless cakes-thats why I have never tried one before!My first attempt wasnt bad. It tasted ok but it wasnt as nice as my other cakes are. I am told by Chef Lakshmi I lack practice!

    Cakes without eggs is like a cigarette without tobacco .. it might look the same but thats it … BOOOOOOOOOOOO to all the stupid eggles cake eaters
    If u dont like eggs .. dont eat cakes !!!

    X-(

    Eggs are not used for taste or flavour in cakes – they are used for moisture, binding and air – many other ingredients and good technique can also do the same in a cake recipe. Cakes don’t require eggs to be tasty. I am most definitely an ‘eggless cake eater’ and no one in their right mind can call me stupid. If you don’t like the idea of eggless cakes, then don’t read eggless cake recipes or leave your rude opinions as comments. – Lakshmi
