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.
