When I baked moist vanilla cake recipe a few days ago, my mother-in-law did not eat the cake because of the presence of eggs. Looking at the reaction of others, who were enjoying the cake, my mother-in-law asked if I know how to make a vanilla eggless cake?
Typically a Vanilla cake is baked using eggs. But the smell of eggs in cakes and other bakes irritates a lot of people. Those who have a strong nose to eggs, they can smell it even after the baked item has cooled down. Their alternative is to bake vanilla cake recipe eggless and this is what you are going to bake today.

Ever wondered why good bakery cakes and bread do not have the smell of eggs in them? Simply because instead of using fresh eggs they would have used egg powder. And that’s even worse according to me. In the process of making the powder out of an egg, it has to shed vitamins.
I have used a combination of vinegar, milk and baking soda but there are flip sides to using vinegar. Vinegar may make the cake dry and there are a few people who do not like the smell of vinegar.
I have curated the list of recommended tools and ingredients for baking. I recommend only tried and tested products that have given satisfactory results in my kitchen.

But the hard work does not go waste. My search headed me to an eggless vanilla cake recipe that used curd and baking soda. This was it. I got my formula to experiment with an eggless vanilla cake without condensed milk.
My initial two attempts did not lead to successful results and made me re-think. In both the attempt I got a sour cake with a prominent smell. After a deep dive into my recipe, I felt it is the curd that might be the culprit. I changed the 2 days old refrigerated curd with fresh curd and got one of the best vanilla cake recipes.

For this recipe, I have used all-purpose flour and organic white sugar. Replaced eggs with fresh yogurt and baking soda. When baking soda combines with curd, it reacts and releases carbon dioxide that results in a fluffy vanilla cake.
I have purposely used more baking soda than my other recipes because after experimenting with different amounts, I got best results with this particular proportion of baking soda. This is a vanilla cake recipe with oil. Oil is used as the fat content and I have used regular flavorless oil.
Vanilla essence was used as the flavoring agent, however, you can use any other essence to make it of a different flavor.
Let’s make vanilla cake recipe from scratch
In a bowl mix Curd, Oil, Sugar, Milk, and Vanilla Essence. In a separate bowl mix Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and salt together.
Sift all the dry ingredients and mix into wet ingredients. In eggless baking, sifting aerates the flour that results in light and fluffy cakes. Make a smooth batter. There should be no lumps.
Line a baking tin with parchment paper or you can simply grease it with butter. I have used baking tin which is 8 inches in diameter. Pour the batter into it. Tap the tin on counter to release the air bubbles.
Now place this tin in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into it comes out clean.
Once done, take out the baking tin and let it rest for 5 minutes and then de-mould the cake and serve.
This is my no-fail recipe and I mostly use this spongy cake as a base for my fresh cream cakes. Watch the video to see how I made a birthday cake using this eggless vanilla cake sponge.
