      Sorry to hear that!!!
      How long did u bake it??May be you need to bake it for few more each oven is different….
      and also baking soda/ baking powder has to be fresh/active.

    My son is allergic to eggs & I have been looking for a good cake recipe to make for him. This cake is delicious and cooks beautifully – best of all, you don't miss the eggs one bit!
