    I must say I tried this a few times and this is the best eggless cake recipe I’ve found ever! It comes out perfectly each time. Flawless and spongy. Nobody believes it when I say it’s an eggless cake. Thank you so much for sharing this. Anytime I try an eggless cake again, I will make alterations to this basic recipe, but I don’t think I will ever have to search for another eggless recipe again 🙂

    I made a few alterations though. I use cake flour when I have it, but all purpose flour works equally well. I usually have skim milk on hand and that is what I add. I add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of yogurt. I sometimes add dry shredded coconut to help with the binding or use coconut milk in place of skim milk. But what I think makes it very spongy is adding ENO instead of baking soda in the same measure. Since eno is a little salty, I cut out the salt to make up for it. I’d seen how ENO makes dhokla/idlis spongy, so I wanted to try it for cake as well and it works wonderfully well.

    Thank you again Mullai. I’ve never commented on recipe websites before, but this is so good that I was compelled to do so. Also, when I first wanted to try this recipe, I was flabbergasted by the number of comments here by people that had never tried it. I’m sure they meant to encourage and support, but it is hardly useful to a person who visits the site for the purpose of trying a recipe. I hope my comment helps and encourages others to try your recipe fearlessly 🙂

    Dear Ms.Mullai,
    i just went through your website.It’s really good.BTW, i would like to know , is vanilla extract 7 vanilla essence are the same.If not, where can we get it in chennai?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Mullai

      Ramya, they are not the same. Vanilla extract is pure form all natural extracted from Vanilla bean. Whereas essence is concentrated and synthetic. Its more of a artificial flavoring. This is more concentrated, a few drops go a long way.
      Usually big department stores have them, I’m not sure where exactly. May be any of our members might be able to help. If using essence use a drop and check the taste. Adjust accordingly. Do not pour a tsp, you will spoil the whole thing.

    Thanks for the great recipe..It came out well for me..Since I like orange flavor, I added 1/4 cup of orange juice in addition to orange zest and also added about 1/3 cup of toasted almonds..small improv. to a good recipe.

    Hey mullai seeing yours for first time. Tried it came out very well.
    pls tell me how did u decorated? I dont know how to do frosting.

    i have whipping cream availble readily, can i use that one?
    How come you dusted the sugar, Can i use sugar powder ?
    Psl clarify my doubts.

    1. Mullai

      Avanthika, these are store bought icing tubes and I squeezed them on top and decorated with nuts. Whipping cream frosting will not stay longer and needs refrigeration. Powder the regular sugar andfill in a tea filter.. tap on top of the cake for dusting. Thanks.

    When my understanding is right, i think anything without milk or milk products (too)( ie the dish with no animal or animal derived products in it) is called vegan and this dish may be called vegetarian since this doesnt have egg and cant be called vegan since it has milk and yogurt (unless they are soy milk or non-dairy)
    Ref for Vegan:

      Kavi, actually you can bake it as one single cake, slice horizontly and frost. But sometimes eggless cakes with thick layer, doesn't cook evenly or puff up. So divided the batter and made two cakes. Thanks !!

    My friend always used to ask this eggless cake recipe. I told her to register to see the pictures. Nice recipe, vegetarians will love this. The frosting decoration is good.

    1. Mullai

      Yep, vegetarians would luv this. Thanks for referring us to your friend.  Whipped cream frosting would be awesome but again spoils the whole idea of keeping it low-fat. My son luvs his cake with colourful frosting, so bought those readymade frosting tubes and had fun decorating.

        Great Mullai. Yes the frosting really helps. She registered and got in today(Akila) and appreciated your work very much.
