Introduction

This is a moist and ultra light cake. Here in Cyprus it is made when people are awaiting good news, translated it is called an "apperance pie". It is made with 7 major ingredients each representing a symbol - it is then made for 7 continuous weeks whether you recieve your good news or not. I just make it because I love it. The great thing is it is suitable for vegans as it is egg less.
