    Yes, this is a kids favorite here too. I have never attempted to bake these at home. Must try the eggless version soon.

  • Vidya Narayan

    I am a big fan of cakes that have no icing. Simple flavours! This just ticks all boxes. Beautiful bake although I was looking for the honey in the ingredients list but then realised the glaze gives it a honey effect. Kids would have enjoyed it so much, i am sure.
