Eggless cakes are a delicious and versatile dessert option that can be enjoyed by everyone, including those who are allergic to eggs or who follow a vegan diet. Eggless cakes can be made in a variety of flavors and textures, and they can be just as delicious as traditional cakes that contain eggs.
Here is a basic recipe for an eggless cake:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients alternately with the milk and yogurt, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
- Beat in the vanilla extract.
- Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Let the cake cool completely before frosting.
Tips for making an eggless cake:
- Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before you start baking. This will help the cake to bake evenly.
- Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can make the cake tough.
- Be careful not to overbake the cake. An overbaked cake will be dry and crumbly.
- Let the cake cool completely before frosting. This will help the frosting to adhere to the cake.
- You can add different flavors to your eggless cake by adding extracts, such as almond, lemon, or orange. You can also add chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit.
- To make a chocolate eggless cake, simply substitute 1/2 cup of cocoa powder for 1/2 cup of flour.
- For a vanilla eggless cake, simply add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter.
- And for a vegan eggless cake, simply substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for each egg.
Once your eggless cake has cooled completely, you can frost it with your favorite frosting recipe. Some popular frosting recipes include buttercream frosting, chocolate frosting, and vanilla frosting.
Eggless cakes can be served on their own or with a variety of toppings, such as fresh fruit, whipped cream, or ice cream. Eggless cakes are also a popular choice for birthday parties, weddings, and other special occasions.
