I admit. I am getting a little tired of this Staying Home business. I miss going out and doing my thing. I have a Sunday ritual. Every Sunday, I go out and spend hours strolling with coffee. I buy fresh flowers and some fresh veggies and come home after a few hours totally rejuvenated. A few hours of me-time does wonders for my well being. I miss that. So, how I am keeping sane in these crazy days…? I bake, I binge watch Netflix and of course, I’m cooking so much nowadays.
This Orange Loaf Cake (Butter Free, Egg Free) I baked for the third time in a row. I kid you not. First two times for two friends and the third time was for me. Not that I need more cake in my life, but I love baking. The smell of a fresh-baked cake is amazing. Not only the aroma of this Orange Loaf Cake but also the spongy texture of this cake will make you bake this cake over and over again. It tastes great with tea/coffee or you can enjoy this cake as is light and guilt-free snack.
And when you have an egg-free and butter-free cake. what else you do need, yeah?
More ideas on butter-free, egg-free bakes?
