My quest for finding the perfect eggless sponge recipe began when We stopped having eggs at my place!
Several magazines were analysed, recipes with my friends exchanged! But none of them was just right!
One day I mixed up two recipes! Tweaked it a li’l and baked the cake! I might add that this cake was the best I had ever made! Better than the one with eggs!
Ever since this recipe has been modified, but now, I can confidently say, it is the easiest yet the yummiest eggless cake recipe you will come across! The options to modify it are endless!
Do drop in your comments and share with everyone how did your cake turn out!
PS: trust me on the measurement, the proportion might seem odd, but is just perfect when its baked!
1/4 cup butter/ malai(heavy cream)
1/2 cup powdered sugar( i’l admit most of the times I use granulated sugar)
1. Cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup milk
1/2tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Salt a pinch( it adds to the flavour, do not omit!)
How to make it
In a large bowl mix together the butter with the sugar.
Now in a large sieve, add all the dry ingredients and pass it through the sieve.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter mix along with the remaining milk.
Mix with a spatula to incorporate all the flour into the mix.
IMPORTANT do not over mix otherwise your cake wont rise.
Pour into a greased baking dish so that the dish is 2/3rd full.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 20-25 minutes or till a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Once cooked flip out on a wire rack, and cool completely before slicing.
Variations to this basic recipe will be posted soon! If you have any questions, feel free to drop a question! All The Best!
