Strawberry Nuts Cake – No Eggs and No Butter Cake
This week Baking is with Strawberries . My kids gets excited if it is a Baking Day . I didn’t bake all these years as my Kids are small and no interest and time after doing regular work. My older does the Baking without my help and with a little help from her sister. They enjoy measuring, Mixing , making little mess in the Kitchen , using Hand Blender, tasting the Batter , Chopping fruits and Nuts and even they are taking Photo’s ( They need to share things they did in summer ) . This is fifth successful Baking . So far we liked Apple cake , Simple Vanilla Cupcakes, Pineapple Cake and Straw Berry Cake. What is for Next week Baking? After Baking it is Mom’s job to clean the Kitchen and Pots. My Kids Open the oven for every 5 minutes to see whether the cake is raising and smelling the Cake. They walk restless in the Living room looking at the timer and to hear the timer to Beep. This Summer i’m having fun watching my kids Baking . This is going to be a good memory for me. It is an Egg less and No Butter cake . We added Nuts for little bite in between . The cake is moist and had nice flavor and aroma from Vanilla essence and ghee. Need to refrigerate because of fruit. Warm for 30 seconds before you serve. Banana’s are good combination with Strawberries and the cake is moist . Here is a Simple Cake recipe that you can Bake with your Kids .
