Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake

My quest for the perfect sponge cake ends here. This is a no-fail recipe. Anybody who tries it has to get a totally spongy cake!
All purpose flour / Maida - 225 grams
Condensed Milk - 400 ml (1 can)
Melted Butter - 100 grams
Baking Powder - 2 teaspoons
Baking Soda - 1 teaspoon
Yogurt - 4 tablespoons (I used vanilla flavoured Yogurt.)
Milk - 200 ml
Vanilla Essence - 2 teaspoons
Powdered Sugar - 2 teaspoons (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
2. Grease an 8 or 9 inch baking pan. (Don't know how to grease a baking pan? Click here)
3. Sieve the flour, baking powder and soda bi-carb (Baking Soda) & powdered sugar together. I added extra sugar because of my sweet tooth. You can skip the sugar if you want.
4. Use a hand blender or a Spatula or a wire whisk to thoroughly mix the butter & condensed milk together.
5. Add vanilla esseence & the yogurt and again beat it until you get a smooth mixture.
6. Add one fourth of the flour mixture to the butter-milk micture & beat it. Then add a little bit of milk and beat agai. In this way, keep pouring the milk & flour mixture alternatively until the entire flour mixture is finished.
7. Make sure you don't pour a lot of milk. The whole mixture shoudn't be too liquid-y nor to sloid-y :-D :-D (unfortunately, I didn't click a pic of the mixture. Will do so the next time. Until then, trust your instincts & my recipe! J)
8. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes. Thereafter, reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 20 minutes.
9. Insert a toothpick into the cake. If it comes out clean, your cake is done. If not, bake for another 5-10 minutes. Keep checking with the toothpick every 5 minutes! J

The cake came out really well! Even better than my Chocolate cake, which unfortunately had a single crack! This one was smooth, spongy, & tasted yumtastic! Of course, like I said before, I topped it with Chocolate Ganache (read about it here) But you can enjoy the cake without the frosting too!! Warm cake with tea sounds delicious, doesn't it? So go make it folks! :-D


  1. yummmmmmmm :D :D

  2. wowie! love the sponge cake! such a perfect texture!

  3. Love it. Thanks for Visiting my Space. Reg. Carrot Poori, even i thought it will absorb much oil but it didn't. Once u grated, make it sit for 5 mins. So that, excess water will get evaporated.

  4. Can I use the same temp setting and time setting for cooking in a microwave with convection mode?


Thanks for the feedback! :-)
