Basic Vanilla Cake – Super Moist & Eggless, is the recipe that you should bookmark and save or write and keep it with you, in any way that you can.

Vanilla cake is the most delicate cake in my humble opinion. A simple mistake or a slightly iffy texture, you can make out that it is not “the” perfect vanilla cake. IT HAS TO BE PERFECT IN TEXTURE &TASTE, or else I do not like it. And I thought I was the easiest one to please when it comes to food. Vanilla cake literally had me wrong.

Any other kind of cake, be it chocolate or other flavor, can still be camouflaged with its flavor, but not the Vanilla Cake.

I tried several vanilla cake recipes that went kaput. That dissuaded me for the looongest time to bake a vanilla cake. I have finally found the PERFECT RECIPE for Basic Vanilla Cake – Super Moist & Eggless.

I have to thank Ruchita, my dearest girl friend who brought this recipe to me and persuaded me to bake a vanilla cake again. I reluctantly agreed but I am glad that I tried. You must try out this cake for sure. She had saved this cake from one of the Facebook groups, posted by Pamela Mayal Bedi. I don’t know her but would extend my thanks for sharing this recipe. Slight alterations have been made to personalize the recipe.

Did you notice the crumb of the cake up there 👆 ? Now you know what I am talking about. Amit said that it tastes almost like Britannia Cake from our childhood days. I think that is pretty good comparison to begin with.

Before we go ahead and bake this cake, here are some reminders – It is not a sponge cake and therefore does not rise much. The taste and texture is very similar to Pound cake (without a pound of butter in it). Use a 6″ or 7″ round or rectangular cake loaf to bake this cake, not the larger one. It finishes very fast, I mean very very fast. 😁

The original recipe called for cake flour. You can use that if you want. You can make it at home. for 1 cup Cake flour --> you need 1 cup all purpose flour. Take out 2 tbsp all purpose flour and replace with 2 tbsp corn starch/flour. Sift it altogether so that it mixes well. Use now. For 1&1/2 cup of Cake flour, you will take out 3 tbsp of all purpose flour and replace with 3 tbsp corn starch/flour.

  1. Can this sponge cake be used for trifle, cake boxes/jars or other similar desserts where vanilla or chocolate sponge are used as a base…?

  2. Is this cake suitable for frosting? I’ve been wanting to make a vanilla cake with frosting for ages now but I’ve never found a good eggless recipe…
