Watermelon cake

Don't panic on hearing the name WATERMELON CAKE..........A cakeeeeee made of watermelonn what????????This is the question my daughter's asked.......But yes it is........Last month Swathi Iyer from baking partners suggested us to make a strawberry cake,At that time strawberry was not available in my location.I got confused and thought of anyother fruits to make this cake.Suddenly Watermelon came into my mind and why not try this...................

Believe it,It came out very well soft,spongy and yummy............I followed the same recipe suggested by Swathi and swap the fruit into watermelon...........Got awesome results and the cake vanished at the moment...........
