Eggless burfee cake

Like everyone else and I am sure there are alot of us out there that just love burfee. I have never tried to make it as yet.I was told it was a complicated process but give me time and I will try and make.

However when I came across the burfee cake, I had to try it out. I didn’t even know there was something called Klim till I tried this cake.

Another thing I like about this cake is that it is Eggless.
