Eggless Cake

I have always looked down upon packaged cake mixes!!  Weren't the cake mixes for those who didn't know to bake? I was also under the impression that whichever mix you tried, one could never achieve the same result as the one that you baked with fresh ingredients. 
But how wrong I was !!
My son had been raving for quite some time about this delicious cake that he had at his friend house. His friend's mom had made the cake with Milkmaid's new range of powdered dessert mixes and insisted that even I should try one out. He was so persistent that finally I had to give in to his pleas and went to the market and bought a packet of Milkmaid's cake mix.  Frankly, till then I hadn't even heard much about this new product. 
The packet had a really simple 3 step instructions to follow. On baking it, I must admit, I was surprisingly pleased with the results. The cake turned out really soft, spongy and super-moist with a delicious taste of milkmaid. In fact, when the cake was baking in the oven, the whole house had a lovely lingering smell of milkmaid reminding me, how as a child I used to love dipping my fingers in the milkmaid can and licking them.
Also, what I liked about the cake was that it was eggless. Good for me, as I had almost given up making eggless cakes. Whenever I have tried to make one, without fail they have turned out dense and heavy, totally putting me off from trying it again..
 But this cake I must say was a real winner. Its great to keep in your cupboard for those times when you are feeling a little lazy and don't want to go through the whole rigmarole of measuring, sifting and beating. It is so easy to make that even the small kids would enjoy preparing it. 
The only drawback that I saw was that the quantity was very less. One packet made a really small cake - just about 8 -10 small slices. You need to make atleast 2 packets if you want a big 9" cake.
But on the whole I give a definite thumbs up to it .

1 pkt Milkmaid "Eggless Cake" mix
1 cup soda water 
50 gms melted butter
In a bowl beat the melted butter.
In another bowl empty out the entire contents of the packet.
Add the melted butter and then stir in the soda water.
Mix well.
Pour in a greased tin and bake for 30 min or till the time the skewer does not come out clean.
Easy, Isn't it?
