On 21st August I have baked this amazing cake for my elder sister surprise birthday. She just love surprises & if especially a cake is made by me then she is the happiest soul. I baked it late night for her and gave her a surprise at 12:00 pm. As she was awake and busy with her office work, she was completely blown away by the surprise and couldn't believe it for a while and was very very happy 😁. It was raining so heavily that she never expected I would come over. She became very emotional and touched.

As this is an eggless recipe, I have used buttermilk instead of eggs. Buttermilk gives softer texture & a hint of tang and it's really a best substitute for eggless cake. I have used pink gel colour to the cake but if you want you can add beetroot juice as well.

I feel extremely proud the way it turned out..... it's soft, moist and extremely spongy. I have decorated the cake with easy chocolate work and as you can witness it looks so beautiful. At the end you will feel happy when everyone appreciate your hard work.

Let's check out the Ingredients & recipe to make this delicious cake. If you like this Eggless pink Velvet Cake recipe then please comment down below, I would love to read your thoughts!!!!

Tips

  • Instead of 1½ cup milk and add 1 tsp of vinegar you can use buttermilk.
  • Buttermilk gives softer texture & a hint of tang. Best substitute for eggless cake.
  • Instead of pink gel colour you can use beetroot juice that gives natural colour to the cake.
