Making and perfecting an eggless vanilla cake is not an easy task. We love cakes, because they are are moist and fluffy. And that texture comes from eggs. But when you decide to replace the eggs, it can be a bit tricky to satisfy your taste buds. Few good substitutes for egg are vinegar, flax seeds, banana and yogurt. This recipe uses yogurt as a substitute for egg. I have seen some of my fellow bloggers make this recipe, I believe the original recipe is from from Nita Mehta’s eggless baking. Its also a cake where we dont use any butter or condensed milk in it.
how does yogurt make the eggless vanilla sponge cake moist-
Plain yogurt (curd), at room temperature is combined with baking powder and baking soda and is set a side for five minutes. After five minutes you see bubbles which are formed by a chemical reaction of yogurt combining with baking powder and baking soda. The baking powder helps to make the cake light and fluffy, where as the baking soda allows your cake to rise.
While baking, Its also important to measure the ingredients precisely and use the exact amount the recipe calls for.
Eggless cakes are a great substitute for any one with egg allergies or have any religious restrictions. Especially if you have a kid with egg allergies, you donot want the kid to be left out. This eggless vanilla sponge cake definitely comes to rescue. This eggless version is a great substitute for any school parties, birthday party or any special occasions.
