Eggless Dry fruit Cake

This Eggless Dry fruit Cake is very close to my heart……..Today I baked my first cake!!!!

It turned out really well, yummy and delicious.

I had never baked before. My mom used to make vanilla cake, chocolate cake during our childhood days.

This version of cake is really healthy as it contains lots of dry fruits and dates, less of sugar (as compared to other cakes), contains milk and butter. So because the ingredients are healthy…the final product is healthy…..
