Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake|How to make basic eggless sponge cake

My blog is going to be three month old on 9th feb 2015.So I thought of some early celebration by making something sweet.
What better than a classic Vanilla Sponge Cake. Ohhh yes....this is eggless, quick to make and as always fuss free.

This Cake is often used as base for pasteries. Just stick to the recipe and you will get a soft airy sponge cake. The amount of sugar mentioned in recipe is as per pastry base, if this cake is to be eaten on its own then sugar can be increased.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time (baking ) : 35 minutes


  1. 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  2. 1 cup curd (beaten)
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp baking soda
  5. 4 tbsp melted butter
  6. 10 tbsp milk or till you get dropping consistency of batter
  7. 1/2 cup castor sugar
  8. 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  9. plain all purpose flour for dusting
  10. melted butter for greasing
  1. Take a bowl and add curd, baking powder and baking soda in it. Mix them and let the mix stand for 5 to 8 minutes undisturbed . This mix will swell and show bubbles.
  2. Take  another  bowl and sieve flour in it.Keep aside.
  3. Add butter, castor sugar , vanilla essence and milk in third bowl.
  4. Add curd mix to this bowl .Now add  seived flour to this mix . Start mixing. Donot whisk. Just fold the mixture gently. We dont want to loose air bubbles. The ready batter should be of dropping consistency.
  5. Take a 7"cake tin. Grease it with butter and sift flour over it. Pour the batter in this tin.
  6. Place the tin in a preheated oven(180 degree celsius) for 35 minutes.
  7. Cake is ready when a toothpick is poked and it comes out clean. Also the cake leaves the sides of tin.
  8. Remove the tin from oven and let it cool on a wire rack.
  9. Once it cools, invert the tin and give it a sharp tap. Cake comes out easily. Serve as it is or with chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
