Tips on ingredients used for eggless whole wheat strawberry cake
This eggless whole wheat strawberry cake uses very simple ingredients and comes together in less than 15 minutes. Follow these few tips to make sure you never go wrong with your cake:
- Always use castor sugar instead of granulated sugar in your cake as it dissolves quickly while baking and gives the cake a nice texture.
- I prefer using plain and flavorless vegetable oil, like sunflower oil or canola oil for my cakes. It makes the cake light and fluffy.
- Make sure you use the best quality strawberries you can get your hands on. I source my fresh strawberries from INA market in Delhi, but you can also check out places like Food Hall, Modern Bazaar, etc. for good quality ingredients.
