Eggless Coconut Cake - Baking For Baking Eggless Group

Last month I started a group to try out our hand in eggless baking. The group known as Baking Eggless deals with recipes using eggs. We try to convert the recipe with eggs to an eggless one. This is all about experimenting. Any one who is adventurous can join the group. For the first month, I selected Coconut Cake from indobase. I tried curd as the egg substitute and the cake was so soft and moist. After experimenting three different recipes, I am giving the best recipe here. I will post the round up of all the cakes in three days.
Linking this to Anjali's Cakes, Cookies and Desserts.
