Eggless Sponge Cake

Sorry i forgot to take pics after cooling.



I wanted to make an eggless cake for my Tiramisu and I was in a crunch for time. I came across many recipes with baking soda, baking powder, soda etc. I was surprised when I saw one of the ingredients, little bit hesitant in the beginning. Finally I gave it a try and proved my self wrong. My family also agreed the same and my husband kept asking for more cake and THAT is a green signal for me.
Ingredients:

All purpose flour- 1.5 cups
Baking Soda – 1tsp
Sugar- 1Cup
Salt- ½ tsp
Oil- 5 tbsp
White Vinegar- 1 tbsp
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
Cold water – 1 cup


In a mixing bowl sift flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Mix well. Add in Oil, Vinegar, Vanilla Extract and Water. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together with a hand blender until there are no lumps. Pour batter into a greased baking pan . Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 mns. Poke a toothpick or fork into the center. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Remove pan from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes before flipping it over onto a platter.


Now I know Vinegar is good for cakes too. After mixing the batter, I tried it and I couldn’t taste the vinegar, that gave me some hope. But waited to confirm on that till the end. The result is good.

Kavita said...

what size pan did you use for this recipe?

mike said...

Great recipe! Thank you for sharing this to us. I would surely try this as my daughter is allergic to eggs, so having a recipe for eggless cake is really wonderful. I bet this cake would go really well with a hot cup of coffee made from one of my commercial coffee makers Kudos!

I have been looking for eggless cake recipes for months now. I have tried the ones with condensed milk but find the cake turns out more rubbery than soft. I have a really good recipe using oil and milk but it requires a lot of oil and I was looking for something slightly more healthy. Ive never made a cake using vinegar so I thought I would try making this cake using half the quantities in case it goes wrong. Soo I have JUST finish making this cake, and I must say, it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! It is really soft, its not too oily like my previous recipe and its not rubbery either! I would definately recommend this recipe to everyone! I slightly changed it by adding 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp bicarbonase of soda.
The cake is soo moist im quite shocked! This recipe is definately moving to the top of my basic cake recipe's folder!! Thanks for posting! :-)
