Eggless Pound Cake

Since I am a vegetarian, I am always trying some new ways to make an eggless cake, which can make the cake light, moist and fluffy. I think I have finally found a good recipe.

Here I am sharing a basic pound cake recipe. I added some orange zest for taste, and some walnuts for a bite, but you can eliminate these additional ingredients altogether, and still make a good pound cake.

1-1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour (Maida)
1/4 Lb (1 Stick) Butter, melted
1-1/4 Cups Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Ground Flax Seeds (Flax Seeds Powder)
3 Teaspoon Water
A Pinch Salt
3/4 Cup Sour Cream
1/8th Cup Orange Juice (You can use water if you don't want orange flavour)
1/4 Teaspoon Orange Zest (Optional)
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts (Optional)
A few strands of Saffreon, for some color

Pre-heat the oven to 325 degree F. In a big mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar and cream and mix well. In a small cup mix the ground flax seeds in 3 teaspoon of water and keep aside for 5 minutes to make a thick paste.  Add the flax seeds paste to the butter mixture and mix well making sure no lumps are formed. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, saffron, walnuts and orange zest in a pan and mix well. Now add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well. Add the orange juice (or water) and mix everything uniformly for one last time.

Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle some flour on all sides. Transfer the batter into the pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until a knife, when inserted in the center comes out clean. When it is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool completley. Cut into slices and serve.
