Vanilla Sponge cake - Basic Egg-less Cake Recipe

Today I baked this Egg-less Vanilla sponge Cake for evening snack. Though I had baked this cake so many times before,it has never made it to the blog. But today I made sure that I clicked some pictures before we ate the cake. Also I didn't apply any frosting, just enjoyed the cake as is. But for special occasions this cake can be used as a base and can be frosted and decorated as you desire .

Vanilla Sponge Cake (Egg-less)
  • Yogurt and milk has to be in room temperature.
  • I used 3/4 cup of Sugar and it was mildly sweet.  So adjust the sugar as per your personal preference. If you have a sweet tooth, then add 1 cup of sugar.
  • Baking time varies with oven to oven. Mine took around 35 minutes. Check yours accordingly.
  • If the cake is not perfectly baked (tooth pick is slightly sticky) then cover the cake with silver foil, lower the oven temperature to 325 F and bake for another 5 minutes.
