Some recipes you bookmark to try later and others tempt you so much that you rush to your kitchen, make it at the earliest and rest only after you have sunk your teeth in a slice. This dish is one of the latter. It was made by Valli earlier in this Bake-a-thon and I saw it and have been salivating ever since.
To add to it, my mother-in-law was due for a visit last weekend and I needed an eggless recipe to bake for her. So I picked this recipe immediately and she was also pleased that this one was a whole wheat flour cake. Needless to say, I scored some major brownie points with my mother-in-law in addition to stuffing my face with all the cake. What more to ask for?
