EGGLESS SPONGE CAKE

Ingredients

1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 cup thick curd
¾ cup sugar

½ cup oil
1 ½ tsp vanilla essence






Method

  • Take curd in a bowl, add sugar and mix well till the sugar dissolves.
  • Add baking powder and baking soda and mix well.
  • Set this aside for 5 minutes. You will see bubbles appearing.
  • Meanwhile switch On your oven and preheat it for 10 minutes at 180 degree C.
  • Add vanilla essence and oil to the cake mix and stir well.        
  • Seive all purpose flour twice and add this little by little to the cake mix.
  • Fold well such that there are no lumps.
  • Transfer the cake mix to a greased aluminum cake pan and place it in the central rack of the oven.
  • Bake with the lower rods ON at 180 degree C for about 35 minutes or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool down completely, then invert it into a plate and cut into small squares.


  • Your eggless cake is ready to be served.

    1. Hi Visishta thanks for your comment...

      Even though the aluminium vessels that we use for normal cooking can be used in an otg, to get the best results and a perfect cake, it is always better to use aluminium cake pans that are specially meant for baking.

  4. Can I know which oil may I use for it. Can I use regular mustard oil or refined oil or something else?

  5. I want to exclude baking soda because I don't like the taste that it imparts to the cake. Can I use 1/2 tsp baking powder instead?

    1. I am not sure how the taste of the cake would vary if you use baking powder since I have not used it myself... It is better if you go with the original recipe and I am sure you will not feel any taste of soda in the cake.

    1. Hi Shajer... You can bake at a temperature 160 degee C and allow the cake to bake for 35 to 40 minutes. By then the wet part in the middle would be cooked. And always preheat the oven at the same temp for about 10 minutes before you place the cake pan inside your otg.

  7. Hi Amina,
    Thank you for the recipe. I have a 28ltr prestige otg similar to yours. Just baked this cake with bottom rods on at 180C for 30min, but the bottom of the cake got burnt:( On top of that, I had lined the cake tin with baking paper. The paper got stuck to the cake and had to be sawed off with a knife! The cake was tasty and very soft, texture not bad. Any idea what could have gone wrong?

    1. Hi veena... Where did you place the cake pan? Centre rack or lower rack? If you had placed it at the lower rack, your cake might have got burnt. And next time try keeping an eye on the cake after 25 minutes. In case you get any signs of burning you can switch off the oven. I am sure your cake will come out great next time...

  8. Did you use colourless vanilla essence? My cake and batter had a darker colour from the vanilla essence I used, not looking anywhere near as good as yours:)

    1. Dear Sujata
      I think the temp 160 degrees is high for your oven. You can bake at 130 degree or 140 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes.
      I hope your cake will come out perfect next time...

    1. Hi... I have got really good, soft and fluffy cakes using my Prestige 19 ltr otg. All cake recipes that I have shared here have been made with this otg only. This otg has worked for me but I am not sure of other people's experience of using it. If you are satisfied with it you can go ahead and buy it, otherwise I am sure there are other good brands as well available in the market.

  31. Also tried chocolate cake by replacing with 1/4 cup cocoa powder.. That was also a hit though not as sweet as vanilla.. But when tried to do chocolate cupcakes with that batter at 180c they got burnt... Reduced the temperature to 160c and they were good ( I use a convection oven)
