EGGLESS VANILLA SPONGE CAKE RECIPE | BASIC CAKE RECIPE | NO EGG NO BUTTER RECIPE

  Few days back when i was talking to my friend who recently got a baking oven, asked me a recipe of a basic cake recipe. I suggested a few eggless baking recipes from my blog . But i wanted to try a a basic eggless vanilla sponge cake too. I already tried this Vanilla sponge cake from Sharmis Passion and i thought i will make it again and blog the recipe too.
This cake turned out super soft and moist. I wanted to bake it in a loaf pan, but ended up baking in a round spring foam pan only. I added little tutti fruitty to the cake. You can skip that and bake a plain cake too.
While uploading the pictures i realized that this is my 300th post too.
Thanks Sharmi for the perfect recipe. We enjoyed the cake very much.

INGREDIENTS:
ALL PURPOSE FLOUR(MAIDA) 1 AND 1/2 CUP
YOGURT 1 CUP
SUGAR 3/4 CUP
BAKING SODA 1/2 TSP
BAKING POWDER 1 AND 1/2 TSP
COOKING OIL 1/2 CUP
VANILLA ESSENCE 1 AND 1/2 TSP
MILK 1 TSP
TUTTI FRUITY 1 TBLSP(Optional)
VANILLA CAKE
METHOD:
  • Cream sugar and yogurt ( use yogurt in room temperature) till the sugar gets dissolved.

  • Add baking powder and baking soda to this mixture and mix well.
  • Keep it aside for 5 minutes.
  • Add vanilla essence.
  • Add oil to this.

  • In a wide bowl add the flour and slowly add the wet mixture to the flour.

  • Mix well to get a creamy texture.
  • Add tutti fruity to this and mix well.( if using)

  • Pre heat the oven to 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
  • Grease the baking pan and dust it with flour.
  • Transfer the cake mixture to the baking tin.
  • Bake it for 35 –40 minutes at 180 degrees C till the center gets completely cooked. Check it by inserting a tooth pick in the center. If it comes out clean then it is cooked.

  • After 20 minutes just brush the top of the cake with milk to get a glaze.
  • when it is completely cooled keep it in the refrigerator for 3 hours and cut the cake.
  • This step will make it to get perfect pieces without crumbles.
  • But i didn’t do as i have to click soon as the weather was getting bad and it was about to rain. (Natural light will work out best for pictures)

Note:
  • Never allow the batter to sit for a long time as this will make the cake hard.
  • 3/4 th cup of sugar is normally perfect but  i prefer to have little extra and so you can make it as 1 cup also.
  • The taste of yogurt will not be felt in the cake so you can move on to try out this recipe without any second thought.

    1. Hi,
      I used normal home made yogurt made with full cream milk only. But the original recipe has mentioned we can use nestle yogurt too which is normally low fat

  34. kids gave thumbs up.. one variation i did is added 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 cup of apf. i think adding coarsely chopped nuts will give some boost too... thanks once again for a very easy cake.

  37. hello jeyshri,

    tried this recipe twice in two days, back to back..a very good one. the best thing for me was that it need not be blended with a blender..which is such a hazzle to clean later.

  38. Hello jeyshrij,
    thanks for the nice recipe......the cake was very soft...

    however, the top of the cake got over baked....how can we avoid this....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry for the delayed reply.Missed it some how. To avoid over cooking of the top bring the temp. low and cook little extra few minutes.Else change the baking mode to the down part.(ie. the filament should kept in the bottom mode)

      Delete
  39. Really excellent, Jeyashri. I tried this for the first time and substituted 1/2 c. butter for the oil, used some yogurt I made that was sour that did not take, and added some shredded coconut at the end (about 3 T.) instead of tutti fruity. Really delicious. Thanks so much.

  40. The cake came out well thanks! Anyways I'm new too baking, I would like to know if I doubled the quantities would it make any difference in the baking time or Centigrade? Once again thanks!

    1. Hi,
      sorry for the delay. If u double quantity the baking time will differ but not double. But bake in the same temperature mentioned. Centigrade will not change

  41. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it looks delicious! I used to bake the eggless cake with condensed milk. Now I am going to try with your healthier choice:)

    Thanks.

  43. At what temperature you have to bake this cake?
    Thanks

  44. can i use self raising flour instead of all purpose flour? b'coz i wrongly bought self raising flour.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can use self raising flour ,Self-raising flour contains baking powder , Of course you need to check that the baking powder you add to the plain flour . Self-rising flour also contains added salt which can lead to some of the recipes tasting a little too salty if this flour is used.
      (1 cup) plain flour plus 2 teaspoons baking powder to replace self-raising flour in recipes. Hope it works for you

    2. Thanks jeyashri. I tried it with using self raising flour. It came out very well.

  45. I tried the same recipe.. It was super yum. Thanks for the recipe. I'm updating this adapted recipe in my blog. hope you are fine with that jeyashri.
    But I had to bake in a pressure cooker. Still I'm quite satisfied!
