There’s no denying that eggs have been the go-to quarantine staple, but if you’re trying to monitor your egg intake or are a veggie-lover, eggless desserts are something you need to explore. More and more celebrity bakers are venturing into eggless baking, and also sharing hacks with their followers.
Patissier and ‘Macaron Lady’ Pooja Dhingra of recently closed Mumbai bakery LE 15 Cafe is all set to host an eggless cupcake baking workshop on Zoom on June 11 at 4:30 pm. Dhingra who closed the shutters of her hugely popular Mumbai joint LE 15 Cafe amid the Coronavirus crisis, recently launched an e-book as a way to support her team amid the current crisis. The LE 15 Cafe Cookbook takes us behind the scenes of the popular patisserie and also features some of the most popular numbers from her kitchen.
The baker is famous for her mini desserts like tarts, cupcakes, macarons and cookies, and in her workshop she will teach Eggless Chocolate Cupcake, Eggless Nutella Cupcake and Ganache for frosting. There will also be a Q/A at the end of the session. You can find more details here.
