  • 1 tinNestlé MILKMAID
  • 100gButter
  • 200gMaida
  • 1 tspBaking Powder
  • 1 tspSoda Bicarbonate
  • 1/2 tspVanilla Essence
  • 150 mlAerated Soda

How to make Moist Eggless Vanilla Cake

  • Step 1: Grease an 8-inch diameter baking tin and dust it with maida. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Step 2: Sieve together maida, baking powder, and soda bicarbonate (2-3 times for better aeration).
  • Step 3: Soften butter (DO NOT MELT). Add Nestlé MILKMAID and beat well. Then, add the vanilla essence.
  • Step 4: Add maida mixture and aerated soda alternately to the batter till all the maida and soda are used up.
  • Step 3: Pour the batter into the baking tin and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or till the toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Step 4: Remove from oven, and cool for a while. Loosen the sides of the cake, using a knife if necessary. Turn out over a wire rack/plate lined with cloth (to absorb moisture) and cool slightly before cutting into pieces.

Tips to Vanilla Eggless Cake

  • Use the right size baking tin to prevent a dense Eggless Cake.
  • Swap butter for oil in your easy Eggless Cake recipe. Oil helps keep the cake moist and fluffy.
  • Overmixing can make your cake tough. So, mix your batter just until combined.
  • Follow the baking temperature in your Vanilla Eggless Cake recipe for an even rise and a well-structured cake.
  • If frosting, wait until your Eggless Cake cools completely - this prevents the frosting from melting and creating a mess.

FAQs on Vanilla Eggless Cake

1. Will a cake rise without eggs?

Yes, cakes can rise without eggs. Leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder create gas bubbles that make the cake fluff up. Eggs help with structure, but other ingredients like aerated soda and yogurt can easily replace them.

2. Why is my Eggless Cake rubbery?

Your Eggless Cake can be rubbery for two main reasons: overmixing the batter and using too much flour. Overmixing develops tough gluten (elastic protein in flour), while too much flour adds density. For a light and fluffy cake, gently mix the batter and use the right amount of flour, as mentioned in the above easy Eggless Cake recipe.

3. Why do Eggless Cakes sometimes become dry?

Eggs in cakes add moisture, leavening, and structure. Without them, Eggless Cakes can be dry and dense. And this happens because substitutes often lack the same binding and rising power as eggs. Careful mixing, using moistening ingredients like butter, oil, or yogurt, and not over-baking can help achieve a delicious Eggless Cake.

4. Why does my Eggless Cake sink in the middle?

Eggless Cakes can sink for a few reasons: too much batter in the pan (wrong pan size), incorrect baking temperature, opening the oven too early, not enough leavening agents (like baking powder), or batter imbalance (too much liquid or fat). To fix this, check the baking powder freshness, use the right pan size, avoid opening the oven too much, and carefully follow the above Vanilla Eggless Cake recipe.

5. How long does Vanilla Eggless Cake last?

A Vanilla Eggless Cake can typically be stored for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. For best results, store it in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out or absorbing other flavours.
