Remember that when baking cakes, everything matters, right from how you fold the batter to the temperature of the oven.
The recipe can be made using an egg or replacing it with yogurt if you have an egg allergy. In my opinion, egg allergy is a tricky food allergy to live with because an eggs is mostly a hidden ingredient in all sorts of foods. But today, I can get the same taste with or without the use of eggs. Have you tried the Slurrp Farm Cake Mixes?
If you want to replace egg, try yogurt, which is one of the most common ingredients used as a substitute for eggs. It gives the cake a very similar texture and makes it fluffy and light. The best part of this eggless cake recipe is that if you do not have an oven, you can bake it in a pressure cooker too.
Let’s talk about the ingredients. Just like all my recipes, I wanted to have simple ingredients that most people usually have on hand. Read further to check the list of ingredients. I would say Mission Accomplished!
1. If you are making the vanilla cake recipe using eggs remember not to over mix or over beat the eggs.
