Whether you are allergic to eggs or you are a vegetarian trying to prepare cakes or you want to celebrate Christmas or turn a dull day into something fun and bright, what better way to enjoy them than preparing a home-made cake – minus the eggs.
In the last post, I had posted a Youtube video which showed you how to make an eggless chocolate cake. I decided to take it a bit further and search for more eggless cake recipes.
There are three recipes for you -
1. How to make a simple and easy eggless cake (vanilla flavor)
2. Variation of eggless cake with an Orange flavor
3. A chocolate version of the eggless cake variety.
Also check out the new Indian cake recipes collection (most are eggless varieties)
Simple and Easy Eggless Cake

- Butter or Ghee – 3 tablespoons
- Milk – 1 cup (room temperature)

- Seedless Dates – 1 cup, finely chopped and mixed with 1 tablespoon flour
- Baking powder – 2 level tablespoon
- Powdered Sugar – 2 cups
- Walnuts, Aprictos – 1 cup

Powder sugar. Add butter and blend for 2 minutes. Add milk at room temperature and blend for a secong. Add curd and blend for another minute. Add dates, vanilla essence and blend for 2 seconds. Add the sifted maida and baking powder mix and just blend to mix together.
Pour into a well greased cake pan and shake gently. Top that with chopped walnuts and apricots. Bake in a heated oven at 190 degrees C for about 40 minutes.
When a nice smell starts coming in, insert a sharp knife into the cake; if the knife comes out in one smooth motion without sticking, this means your cake is ready.
