Eggless Vanilla Cake

Everybody loves cakes. Now a day, cakes are not only tasty but our beloved bakers have found different ways to decorate it too. Fondant, cream cakes, buttercream frosting and what not. But I still remember the plain cakes which I used to eat straight away from my mom’s kitchen. Plain, simple yet delicious.

If you are fan of plain cake too, I have got a just a perfect recipe for you. Simple plain cake, a hot cup of tea, favorite book and beautiful rains. The best combination ever. So, let’s start baking.

First here is the list of ingredients:

  1. Oil: 50 grams
  2. Butter: 45 grams
  3. Milk: 250 grams (Room temperature)
  4. Vinegar: 2 tsp
  5. Condensed milk: 250 grams
  6. Vanilla essence: 2 tsp
  7. Plain flour: 200 grams
  8. Baking soda: ½ tsp
  9. Baking powder: 2 tsp
  10. Powdered sugar: 40 grams (As I do not like too sweet cake, I don’t add it. I find the sweetness obtained by condensed milk is enough)

I have deliberately given all measurements in grams (even for liquid ingredients).

It is very easy to make this cake.

As I promised you all, this time I have managed to take photos of each step.

Step 1

Take Butter and Oil in a ball. Mix it together until well combined. You can make use of electric beater but it’s not compulsory. I used wire whisk.

Step 2

Add condensed milk. and mix it for at least 4-5 minutes with wire whisk. If you want to add powdered sugar for additional sweetness, you can add it in this step.

Step 3

Add Vinegar and vanilla essence into the milk and keep it aside. Also sift your dry ingredients together (Flour + Baking Powder + baking Soda).

Step 4

Now mix dry ingredients and milk mixture into your Oil, butter and condensed milk mixture into 3 batches. Do not over mix.

Step 5

Take a cake tin and line it with butter.

Step 6

Now put the cake batter in the tin. Tap the tin twice.

Step 7

Bake on 165 degrees for 30 minutes (I use convection mode for baking). If you are using regular over, bake it for 170 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

My final product was this:

Isn’t it amazing?

I will be posting another plain cake recipe in coming days. Till then Keep BAKING!
