Do you have a basic cake written down in your recipe diary?

If not then you should definitely have a collection of certain basic recipes in your diary. For eg:
1. This Eggless Vanilla Cake
2. Eggless Chocolate Cake – One bowl, no butter milk or condensed milk
3. Basic Pound Cake
4. Basic Cookies recipe
5. Basic Cupcake recipe
6. Some Muffin recipe

If you are new to baking then I would highly recommend you to watch my Beginners Baking Series that has both the Pressure cooker and Oven method of baking.

So that you can use these as the base and then start baking with flavours that you like or your family prefer.

Today’s Eggless Vanilla Cake recipe is so simple that you can make it all in one bowl. Just grab your mixing bowl; add the dry and wet ingredients, mix, transfer to a baking dish and bake. Can it be more simpler?

OR best you can mix everything directly in the baking pan itself.

Just like how I am doing. So what I did is I took an 8 inch baking pan; that I have greased with butter and lined with parchment paper.

So to this baking pan; I added my dry ingredients – Flour, Salt and Baking soda

To that I then added sugar and my wet ingredients – Water, Oil, Lemon juice and vanilla extract.

Then just mixed it all well and baked in my preheated oven.

If you are not confident of mixing everything in the baking pan itself you can always mix it in the bowl and then transfer.

So you might be wondering why haven’t I shown an image of cut slice?

Well because I have baked this for a special occasion I will not be slicing it now; but after three days when I will frost it and cut. Till then stay tuned with me.. πŸ˜€

So now that I have not sliced it wondering how does it taste like?

This recipe is adapted from my One Bowl Eggless Chocolate cake so ofcourse I am sure that this is a very moist and soft cake. Ofcourse not spongy and airy like my pound cake but definitely good enough to form the base for that special occasion.

The key my friend is to use a good quality vanilla extract as that is what gonna add the flavour to it. If possible try to include the fresh beans or an extract that has beans in it.

Here is the detailed recipe of this delicious moist and soft Eggless Vanilla Cake.

      Hi Madhu..

      Thank you for taking the time out to try this cake..

      Hope your oven temperature is at the required temperature. This cake should not take more that 30-35 mins to make. How long did you bake this for??

  1. Chinju says:

    This recipe is a keeper! It took just 5 mins to set everything and 30 mins to bake
    It came out perfect! And the best part – Cleaning the kitchen was a breeze!!! 😁 I just made 2 changes. I added vinegar instead of lemon juice and milk instead of water. THANKS A TON!!

  2. Carolyn says:

    In the recipe you said to use baking soda, but in the questions you said baking powder. Which should it be?
    I’m anxious to try your recipe. I made an eggless cake using condensed milk and was not happy with it – it was tough. So I’ll try yours. It sounds delicious.

  3. Janette says:

    Very simple cake. I️ made 2 adjustments, added cinnamon cause I️ didn’t have vanilla and added a pack of hot cocoa powder. Cream cheese icing on top. Tasty, quick and perfectly baked.

    • sushma iyer says:

      That sounds great Janette.. I am glad you worked out your own way..

      Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback with us.. Much appreciated.. πŸ™‚

      Hi shereen..

    This is so moist and delicious. I am always looking for eggless easy recipes since I am allergic to eggs. This cake will be served from now on with my eggless chocolate cake at family dinners. Thank you for sharing. ☺

  5. Shifali says:

    I have tried your recipe, it’s good but there is just one problem i.e. i can smell and taste baking soda in the cake when i have put in the exact quantity of baking soda that you suggested. Could you please help mΓ¨?
    Thanks

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi shifali..

      Thank you for taking the time out to try this recipe and share your feedback with us.

      Have you ever faced this problem before with other baked goods? Because sometimes the brand of baking soda also affects the outcome. Also, it is always advisable to scoop out the soda and level it off using a knife for exact measurements. Did you try sieving the dry ingredients together? Sometimes that also affects.

      Usually, the taste lingers when there is too much soda or the soda was not mixed in properly. I am sorry you had to face this. But I will take your point into consideration and note the results the next time I bake it.

        • sushma iyer says:

          Hi shifali..

          Have you ever noticed this problem with some other cakes? Try changing the brand of baking soda is what I can suggest as you have measured and used it properly in the recipe.

  6. Joy says:

    Hi I wanted to ask if this will work to use honey instead of sugar?my husband does not eat any sugar.thanks a lot will be appreciated!

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Joy you can try and substitute 1 cup sugar for 3/4 cup honey.. I am not sure how it would taste as personally I have never tried it. You can try and share your feedback with us.

  7. Ann says:

    Hi, I’ve been trying out many eggless cake recipes and it did not work out. Yours did..definately keeping this.
    thanks.

  8. Allison says:

    Hi, I was very excited to find your recipe and to try it out! I do have a couple questions though. I am not familiar with Maida. Can I substitute all purpose flour for it? If so do I use the same measurement? Thanks so much!!

  9. Neha T says:

    Hi, i tried your recipe and it came out so well.. Thanx for sharing it. But i have faced two problems i.e..smell of soda and center was bit wet..i daked it for 35mins..one more thing the colour of my cake was not brown at all… In all i really loved this recipie

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Neha..

      First of all thank you so much for taking the time to try the recipe and share your unbiased thoughts with us.

      About the soda part have you ever experienced the same with any other recipe? Maybe try using a different brand of soda or another alternative is to increase the amount of vanilla essence in it.

      I received this comment from another reader as well but I have baked this cake countless time and never experienced any maybe next time I will pay attention to the smell and see.

      Every oven is different. So maybe you could have baked it little longer. Always do the toothpick test that way you will be sure that it is baked through and the center is not wet.

      Regards

  10. Purva says:

    Hi can I use pureed berries or any other fruit, chia seeds, cinnamon n cranberries with the same measurements or will it change? How can I make it more healthy n interesting, the vegan way?

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Purva..

      Yes you can definitely use any add ons like cranberries, cinnamon, chia seeds, tutti fruity, nuts of your choice etc like the way you mentioned in this recipe. And definitely fresh fruits can also be added but I guess adding pureed berries would increase the baking time of the cake I am not sure how that would work.

      To make it interesting you can add any other flavours too like pineapple, butterscotch etc or any nuts like you mentioned.

      If you are looking for healthier bakes then I have this Whole Wheat and Jaggery Cake and also Refined Sugar Free Dates and Walnut Cake on the blog but those are not vegan. Here are the links to them just in case you are interested: https://spicesnflavors.com/healthier-wholewheat-eggless-dates-walnut-loaf-cake/ and https://spicesnflavors.com/atta-cake/

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Erin..

      All purpose Flour is called Maida in Hindi language. Thank you for pointing it out so I will just add All Purpose Flour/Maida in the recipe card which means yes definitely use APF here. Thank you πŸ™‚

  11. Mani N says:

    I substituted milk for water and brown sugar for white sugar. I have tossed in half a cup of chocolate chips, with a dash of cinnamon. This is so moist and delicious πŸ˜‹

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Mani N

      Yes milk would totally make this cake even more softer and moist. So glad to know that the substitutions worked well for you and you enjoyed the cake.

      Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful feedback with us.. Really appreciate it.

      Regards
      Sushma
