Eggless Vanilla Tea Cake

Vanilla flavored tea cakes or pound cakes are my kids favorite and used to make it often.But these days due to diet conscious and gluten intolerance,baking takes back seat.For the year 2018,this cake was the first bake happened in my kitchen in last week of November.
Coming back to the recipe,it's a recipe noted down from a good friend of mine.This is a butter less cake,uses olive oil and yogurt with some basic ingredients.This cake is mildly sweet and perfect to serve with a cup of tea.

Vanilla cakes can be served simply with frosting, or baked into cupcakes it can be made more special by stirring in mini chocolate chips or crushed Oreo.

I tried and it's great! One modification- i needed 4 tbsp milk to make the batter become less stiff. Tasted great on day of baking, will wait today and see how it is on next day.
