Ravyacha Cake is one of the most commonly made eggless cake in the Maharashtrian kitchens. It has a typical "home baked" quality to it, which I enjoy the most. I have already blogged about variations of this cake - Kelyacha Dhondus, Cucumber Dhondus.
My aunt used to bake this cake in her Nirlep pan. Later she started baking it in the circular oven that was very popular in India in 80s. Whenever I bake this cake today, it takes me to those lovely childhood days.
