This Eggless Cake recipe is a very basic recipe and the cake we get is very spongy and nicely textured. You can add frosting to it to make it special. My husband is not very fond of icing but my kids love it. So sometimes I keep half the cake as it is and add icing to the other half.:-)
I realized that I have not put any cake recipes on the blog other than mocha cake which is not exactly a cake it is a biscuit cake. So I thought I will start with the most basic recipe first and then post others soon.
I learnt making cake from my sis. Yeah I know many benefits of having an elder sister and if she is studying home science. Bingo J
After my marriage I came to know that my MIL also bakes cakes and that too a very good one. Basic recipe was the same she just adds milk powder to the cake batter which gives it a very nice texture. So I also started adding milk powder to my cakes.
How to make Eggless Cake
2 cups maida/plain flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup milk powder
¾ cup fresh cream/malai from milk
1 cup powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1 cup milk
To make Eggless Cake
Lightly grease a baking pan. Preheat the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Sieve flour and baking powder. Add milk powder to it.
In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cream till fluffy. Add vanilla essence to it.
Now add flour mixture to sugar and cream mixture gradually till all of it is used. Keep on mixing and folding in between. Add a little milk at a time to get the desired consistency. I used almost a cup of milk.
Taste the batter (as if you have not done that already ;-)) and adjust sugar according to your taste. Beat well for some time. Mixture will be fluffy now.
Immediately pour into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180 C. I have baked for 40 minutes.
Check by inserting knife whether the cake is uniformly baked or not especially at centre of the cake. If it is not done then bake for another 5 minutes.
Leave the cake in oven for some time
Take it out of oven and invert the tin over a rack. Tap th tin to remove the cake. Let the cake cool for some time and then ENJOY J
