Tips to make the perfect sponge cake

  1. Make sure you sift the flour well. This step is very important as it makes the cake light and airy.
  2. Using the curd  and baking powder give a good airation to the batter. 
  3. Adding hot water in the batter also helps to activate the baking powder, to give a soft texture after it has been cooked. 

Other Cake recipes

  1. Cakes are baked goodies generally prepared on special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. Chocolate and vanilla are two popular sponge cakes. You can slice up a cake from between and make a layered cake or simply top it up with frosting or icing and make it more elaborate. Cakes can be decorated further with fruits, candies, dried fruits, etc. Here are some cake recipes that you might want to try :

Batter for Vanilla sponge cake

  1. For making the batter for eggless vanilla sponge cake using curd, in a deep bowl place the sieve and add flour.
  2. Add baking powder. It adds the necessary lift to the cake.
  3. Sift them together and keep aside. Sifting together results in uniform mixing and adds aeration to the cake mix.
  4. In another small bowl, take curd.
  5. Add soda bi-carb. The reason to use both baking powder and baking soda is that they affect both the browning and texture of the eggless vanilla sponge cake.
  6. Mix together and keep aside. You can see the bubbles appearing as you mix.
  7. In a deep bowl, add butter. Alternatively, you can even use vegetable oil that doesn’t have a strong smell instead of butter.
  8. Add sugar.
  9. Add ¾ cup of hot water.
  10. Whisk well till the sugar dissolves completely.
  11. Add the flour mixture.
  12. Add curd. If your curd is not sour, add a tbsp of vinegar in the curd and then add it to the cake mix.
  13. Add vanilla essence or vanilla extract. You can add rose essence, coffee essence,  almond essence instead of vanilla in this mixture of sponge cake batter.
  14. Mix to make a smooth batter with help of a spatula or a whisk, the batter should be of pouring consistency, You can come up with variations to this sponge cake recipe by adding nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, berries etc.
  15. Mix well till it turns smooth and no visible signs of flour and our eggless sponge cake with eggs is ready. After preparing the batter, bake it immediately. Otherwise, the eggless vanilla cake will not turn soft and spongy.

How to make cake with curd

  1. To prepare basic vanilla sponge cake with curd, grease the entire surface of 200mm. (8”) diameter baking tin with oil or melted butter using a brush.
  2. Put the batter in a greased baking tin and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C (360°F) for 45minutes.
  3. Remove the tin from the oven and insert a toothpick or knife in the center of the cake to check whether it is fully cooked or not. If it comes out clean, then it means cake is baked perfectly. If it does not, then bake for a few more minutes. If the cake turns brown from the top but remains uncooked from the inside, cover the pan with aluminum foil to prevent the cake from turning brown further and bake again for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Remove eggless vanilla sponge cake from the oven, keep aside to cool and use as required.
  5. You can enjoy the eggless vanilla sponge cake with curd as it along with coffee/tea or apply whipped cream, berry compote over it and serve. Also, you can make a fancy Sponge Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream or Strawberry and Pineapple Praline Cake.

I did not like the end result of this recipe. It was very blend and tasteless cake. The texture and taste of the cake were horrible.
