    eggless, butterless cake.......

    Hello Seetha,

    First time that I get a query like this. I'm surprised u don't take coffee.
    Don't u wanna try with a smallest packet of coffee available??????? Just to see if u like the taste....
    If u are sure u don't want to use coffee powder, just use cocoa powder in place of it with the same qty i.e. 1 tsp...

    hOpe u like the taste.....

    Meetha soda

    Another quick question...is meetha soda same as baking powder or is it soda bicarb? I believe both are used in baking, but I am not sure what 'meetha soda' stands for...

    Thanks,
    Shalini
