Eggless Vanilla sponge cake

Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake is light, moist, hassel free to make, loaded with dry fruits and tastes yummy. It is a classic vanilla sponge cake recipe that is made without using butter and eggs.

Super light, moist and airy vanilla cake is made with yogurt and oil.

This vanilla cake is a must-have recipe for the one’s who wants to begin baking with the simplest recipes ever.  Moreover, this cake can be a best sponge base cake recipe ever because it’s simple and easy to make.

As a teenager when I start to learn baking, Vanilla sponge cake (with eggs) cake, was my first ever bake which I learnt from my Mom. I have a written recipe note even today in my cooking dairy.

That time my my used to bake cakes in old fashioned electronic round oven with glass lid.

My experiments with Eggless bakes

I have always loved to bake with eggs. My most of cake recipes include eggs. But after making this Banana chocolate eggless cake my perception changed forever. Slowly and gradually I have started to love eggfree bakes.

If you wish to make eggless cakes, please do check out the following on the blog –

I like to experiment and try new recipes and internet is full of eggless vanilla sponge cake recipes. It is really difficult to find the perfect recipe that turns out delicious and moist as per my liking.

However after trial and error when I worked through this recipe, I decided to put this on my blog for you all.

And since then I have never looked back simply the reason, how easy and perfect the vanilla eggless sponge cake turns out each time I bake it.

So let’s get started.

 

Instructions to make vanilla sponge cake

First of all, sieve the all purpose flour in a bowl at least 4 to 5 times  to create air, that will make your cake light and fluffy and set aside.

Meanwhile preheat your oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes. Prepare a 6-inch baking pan/ tin with parchment paper at the bottom.

Here I have used a round cake tin but you may use whatever shape baking pan/tin available with you.

In a bowl, beat the curd and sugar together. To this mixture add the baking soda and baking powder. Beat well and let this mixture rest for 5-8 minutes.

After a while the bubbles will appear and it will turn frothy. Next, add oil and vanilla essence and beat well.

Please note that once you add baking soda and baking powder do not keep the batter unbaked for long. If so, the baking powder and baking soda tends to loose its effect.

Now fold in the sieved flour by using cut and fold technique, making sure there are no lumps. Fold in chopped dry nuts coated with all purpose flour. This will prevent nuts to sink down the cake.

Pour this batter in a 6-inch baking pan/ tin with parchment paper at the bottom. Always make sure that cake batter should be filled till half in a baking tin/pan, so as to give it a space to rise while it’s baked.

Sprinkle some more nuts on the top of cake batter.

Bake this in a preheated oven at 200 degrees first for 10 minutes and then gradually reduce the temperature to 170 degrees C for 30 – 40 mins or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

This temprature variation will give the required beautiful golden colour on top of cake.

Let it remain in the oven for atleast 15 minutes then transfer this on a cooling rack. Once it cools down completely run a knife on the edges of the tin and invert it on plate.

    Hi it looks perfect wanting to try it but instead of castor sugar what can I use

    1. Lata Lala

      Hi Jaya. You can use powdered sugar instead of castor sugar. Glad to hear from you. Please let me know your feedback about the cake with pictures clicked.

  14. Dharna

    My cake sank when I left it in the oven for 15 minutes as specified in the recipe.

    1. Lata Lala

      Hi Dharna thank you for writing in.

      Even after following the recipe many times cake sinks as

      1. Too much leavening agent like baking soda or powder used. It can cause a cake to rise too high too quickly. The gas from the leavening agents builds up and escapes before the cake bakes through in the center. This causes the center to collapse and makes your cake layers sink in the middle.

      2. Oven Door Was Opened / Slammed
      while the cake was baked.

      3.Your Oven Temperature may vary

      4. Using a Different Pan Size than mentioned.

      Hope this helps.

  15. Sophia

    Hi Lata, Thank you for sharing your recipe. I have been looking for a good eggless recipe for a long time . I want to make a big cake for my sons birthday. Can you help me out with quantity of ingredients for a 10″cake please.

    1. Lata Lala

      Hello Sophia, thank you and glad to know that you liked it. I would suggest you to go for 2 cakes of 5 inch each rather than one 10 inch cake. It will be much easier to handle also.
      For 10 inch cake you will need big cake mould, if you have than you may give it a try.

  16. Sophia

    Hi Lata , thankyou for your reply .
    We need a big cake for the birthday ..the wider the better so we can cut it into many pieces . Would u have a recipe for a 2 kg eggless cake so I can use the 10″ tin please

    1. Lata Lala

      Hi Sophia, I am a home baker and never made this big 2 kg cake. So I am afraid I could advice you on this. You may double or triple the same cake quantity and can try.
      Moreover, I have never weighed my cake so no idea. My apologies.
      Thank you for writing in.

  17. Devi

    Hi I’m ingredients you mention “curd” ,
    Do u mean yogurt! If not what product works best

    1. Lata Lala

      Curd means dahi in Hindi. Yes you can say it’s called yogurt too. Thick ghar ka jama hua dahi I have used to make this cake.
