Basic Eggless Vanilla Cake | Eggless Cake Recipes

Every baker worth his/her salt should have a basic eggless cake in their armory and mark my words,this one is "the one".I have been baking this cake for years now,I first made it as a marble cake version and posted it here but since I've been getting many requests for a basic eggless vanilla cake,I thought I'd do a separate post for the same.

It is a simple recipe with ingredients easily available in your kitchen.Just follow a few basic steps and you are guaranteed a perfect cake each and every time.
  • Measure the ingredients accurately.Use measuring spoons and cups.
  • Make sure the curd/yogurt is not runny and is in room temperature.
  • Check the expiry dates of the baking powder and soda you are using.Make sure it is fresh.
  • Every oven is different and you know your oven settings well.Don't go by the temperature in the recipe alone.
This cake is perfect as a simple tea cake or can be filled and frosted with buttercream or ganache.I used a smaller pan size as I was planning to have it plain and wanted a tall slice.If you want no doom or cracks on top,use an 8' round tin and bake at a lower temperature till done.

  1. This looks really tasty. I have had a few cakes from my aunts who make the same eggless kinds. And this recipe just made me realize how easy it is. I will have to try this one. I once tried with Flour and Banana, it tasted really good as well. I don't have a oven opened out in our new house yet, I guess its time now. Haha. Thanks. :)
