Hema's recipes - Eggless sponge cake

The cake(after baking)

The cake batter

As we come from a brahmin family we are pure vegetarians and we don't eat eggs. When I came across the eggless sponge cake in vahrehvah i just tried it and it was so delicious and no one can tell it is without eggs.
It is very easy to make and here goes the recipe.


1) Maida - 2 cups
2) Powdered sugar - 1 cup
3) Butter - 1 cup(melted)
4) Baking soda - 1/2 tbsp
5) Baking powder - 1 tbsp
6) Condensed milk - 1 cup
7) Carbonated water - 1 can(coke, pepsi, fanta)


1) In a bowl, take 1 cup milk, add powdered sugar and mix it.
2) Melt the butter & add it to the sugar mixture & beat until its mixed well.
3) Take the dry ingredients - maida, baking powder and baking soda and mix it well.
4) Pour the mixture of butter, milk and sugar in this maida and just mix it.
5) Now add the carbonated water and mix everything well. Mix it up slowly. It should be like dosa batter consistency.
6) Grease the baking tray with butter or ghee and pour in the cake batter.
7) Pre-heat the oven for 400 F and bake it for 15 minutes. Switch off immediately and let it be in the oven
for next 15 mins. Do not remove them. Let them cook in switched off oven.
8) Insert a knife at the centre of the cake and it should come out clean.
9) Remove them and let them cool completely.
10) Run a knife around the edges of the cake to loosen and place a flat plate over the tray and turn it over to transfer the cake on to the plate.
11) Cut them into slices and serve.
