Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake Recipe


I have quite a lot of cake recipes in my blog. But i found that i haven't shared few basic cake recipes which everyone like, for example, sponge cakes..So i have started baking those cakes and will share it with you soon..



This is a vanilla sponge cake, these sponge cakes form the base for all type of birthday cakes. Because they hold the cake well and yet taste spongy and soft. My next try will be a chocolate sponge cake..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

    Hi, when u use baking soda put half spoon of it in boiling water first if it gives bubbles then it is active and it will make the cake fluffy....
    It happens sometimes that keeping soda for long makes it inactive...then n have to buy new packet

  34. Hi. Did you use the milk?

    ReplyDelete
  35. @jayno i didn't use milk, but my batter was quite thick and i baked like that. so i got a crusty top which was good. If the batter was thin, then the top will be soft. So add milk to thin the batter a little

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi .aarti .can we make cupcakes with tis recipe.can we keep them in freeze after frosting them wit whipped cream .they will not become hard na.

  39. Hii Aarthi,
    tried this cake...came out nice but it won't brown on the top as the one shown in the pictures. I have a gas oven which only heats from the bottom. Should I turn it upside own while baking to get the golden crust?

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Anonymousnot sure about that. browning depends on each oven
